High fashion refers to clothing designed by top fashion designers and displayed on fashion runways; this type of fashion creates trends. How to dress high fashion should be a paramount part of your style.
Dressing in high fashion means exuding elegance and sophistication, which means choosing tailored and form-fitting clothing that flatters. Furthermore, keeping outfits simple with matching colors is key.
1. Dress for the occasion
Dress appropriately when attending special events to ensure a positive experience and impress others. Doing this will also prevent fashion faux pas that could last for years – be it weddings, birthday parties, or charity fundraisers. Ideally, your clothes should match the atmosphere of each occasion you attend.
If the event is formal, dress for it. Women should typically opt for knee-length dresses with high heels. Men can choose a suit or dress shirt and trousers combination that comes up to about the waist – both styles should also include a tie.
Other special occasions may call for more casual clothing. This typically applies to events like parties, concerts, dinner parties, and social gatherings that help break up everyday life or celebrate significant milestones in one’s own or someone else’s lives.
When dressing for an important event, it’s essential that your clothing is clean and ironed. Furthermore, avoid clothing that is either too small or large, and beware of any that have visible stains or tears; finally polishing shoes thoroughly will also add polish. If unsure which attire would best fit an event, organizers are advised.
2. Dress for your body type
Dress for your body type rather than trying to fit someone else’s, one of the first tips when learning how to dress high fashion. Doing so will keep you happier with your clothes, plus they’ll last longer while saving money by not purchasing dresses that don’t fit properly.
If you possess an hourglass figure (proportionate hips and bust with a defined waistline), this is considered one of the most striking body shapes. Take pride in showing it off with A-line silhouettes, wrap dresses, cinched waistlines, or deep and narrow necklines that complement its curves.
If you have a pear-shaped body (wider shoulders and hips with a smaller upper body), try to balance out your proportions by drawing attention to your lower half with prints or patterns skirts, while wider necklines like crew, cowl, or sweetheart necklines will broaden shoulders and highlight collar bones.
Women with a rectangle or straight body type typically possess fairly consistent measurements with a straight waistline, making this body type very versatile when it comes to style choices and emphasizing certain areas. Rectangle or straight body types can pull off most looks and can focus on emphasizing specific parts of their bodies by opting for shoulder-building details or one-shoulder styles, or they can opt for more flowy pleating or funky flares in order to balance out their lower half.
Apple body shapes are distinguished by wide shoulders and a larger bust, along with a slimmer waistline. A-line dresses, wrap dresses, and blouses that cinch at the waistline will accentuate your figure; peplum styles may also provide additional fullness to hips while helping balance shoulders out.
3. Dress to impress
Knowing how to dress in high fashion is crucial when making first impressions count. Aiming for confidence and poise should always be your goal, even if that means donning some pumps and an eye-catching handbag to create that illusion of confidence. Just keep it professional when meeting with lawyers or accountants, or don’t show up wearing a leopard print shirt when meeting editors of fashion magazines!
Your wardrobe can make a big impactful statement about who you are. Take a sticky note and write three words that describe how you would like to be seen; each time you get dressed ask yourself whether your outfit reflects this vision of how you’d like others to perceive you; otherwise, it might be time for a change!
Black is always fashionable – Johnny Cash made it famous when he wore it onstage, The Terminator donned it and Hedi Slimane debuted it in his Celine collection. Black’s slimming, comfortable silhouette makes for easy wear that hides cheap fabrics while making you appear more mature and professional.
When trying to impress your crush girl, even small efforts will go a long way. Just keep in mind that she wants to see who you truly are rather than some version of you that she thinks they want you to be. That is why it’s essential that you find an outfit and style you feel confident wearing; add special touches such as unique accessories to make yourself noticeable to other people and smile as much as possible – she will surely notice.
