TIP OF THE DAY NO. 67 – CASUAL OR DRESSY?

TIP NO, 67 – CASUAL OR DRESSY?

In the days of our grandmothers, there were definite guidelines about what type of dress to wear for an occasion. And if you read stories set at the turn of the century, you may run across day dresses (or even morning dresses). carriage dresses, riding dresses, dresses for receiving callers, and so on.

In our days the distinctions have been narrowed to: casual, formal, and everything goes. But the reality is not so simple. Often when one asks for the dress code, the answer is , “Oh. you know just dress casual.” Since this word is interpreted in so many ways, you may see party-goers in everything from jeans and sweatshirt to a trouser suit with a satin blouse.

CASUAL means an attire that is comfortable, not contrived,  a look that does not say ‘dressed up.’ But it does not mean sloppy, nonchalant, or unattractive. You can be casual in a nice pair of pants, a silk blouse, and a leather jacket, or in a cotton dress with sandals and a straw hat.

If you tell me ‘but I want to be comfortable’ – please don’t use this as an excuse not to make an effort and look your best.

See you tomorrow

Here is her answer: quote “I believe that in tough times it is still important – more important than ever,  actually – to look your best. It is a way of boosting your confidence and the confidence others have in you.”

You see I am not the only who thinks that it is worthwhile to
