Styling Tips: What to Wear for Every Occasion

Ever had that feeling where you know where you are going and when, but have no clue what you should or want to wear? Since fashion and even your personal style is an ever-evolving thing, and you probably do not wear the same jean styles you did when you were 10; it can be hard to know what to wear for every occasion or situation.

Styling Tips: What to Wear for Every Occasion

It is an important decision to stand out like you but also match the level of etiquette that the rest of the attendees have. We all know not to wear white at a wedding but dressing well for an occasion not only will give off an air of preparedness but also self-confidence. So here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Casual Occasions

Think of this as something you would wear every day go for comfort. An excellent place to shop for clothes, like this, is vibe these outfits put off is "Just threw this on" and "No worries I got this." Try throwing together jeans and a shirt with a little frill, a summer dress, or even a few layers for those nighttime barbecues that can get a bit chilly.

Formal Occasions

Here you want to go for sophisticated but understated. Unless you are speaking or in the spotlight at this type of event don’t try to steal it. You will pull more attention with a sleek black dress and an up-do than something short and full of sequences. Wedges or flats are acceptable, but a body-flattering pant and blouse combo or a dress will suit you well and do the job.


This one can be a bit tricky to navigate. You may get a lot of “This doesn’t work” vibes when going through your closet. Don’t fear or fret! Go for a dress in between knee-length to mid-thigh that is about the length you are going for. If you want to dress it up a bit more, just to play it safe, add some heels. Many times, these are business events so keep it classy and modest; you never know who is watching.


This one depends on your work environment. If you wear jeans and a t-shirt to work every day, which we do not recommend, then for a business function at your office or with other employees will be right around that same style level.

Remember to dress appropriately for the occasion, if it is a summer employee appreciation picnic a mini skirt and heels will have you standing out like a sore thumb. If you think your outfit is too plain or doesn’t pop, you need to add a bit of color to it like some red shoes to help you stand out, but still fit in with the setting.

These are some simple ideas so that you can dress your best for any occasion. Always remember to pair a great outfit with a bit of makeup and a smile. It will bring an outfit you don’t love to a whole new level. Take your time when shopping, because prepping for your body type and the season will make all the difference in the time you spend picking out your outfit and the comfort you feel in it.
