With all the choices we make every day, thinking about how nice and stylish we look shouldn’t be at the top of our to-do list. It’s not about “should I dress nice” or “should I be nice” – it’s about “how to dress nice” every day without putting too much thought into it.

Dressing up in the morning is supposed to be fun and exciting. You’re setting the mood for the day ahead. Don’t you want that to be good?

If you love your clothes, you’ll feel confident, beautiful, and you’ll have that extra boost in your day. You’ll smile when you see yourself in the mirror, and you’ll know that you’re ready to go!

But what if you ran into someone you knew? Would you run and hide? Would you avoid them? If so, then you need to keep reading!

HOW TO DRESS NICE EVERYDAY

How to dress nice

I dress nice most days of the week, not just for special occasions or when I’m out with friends. My daily getting ready routine comes down to a checklist. This is my way of making sure I look nice and stylish every day. Whether I’m wearing a business casual outfit to work or a casual white jeans outfit for the weekend, this checklist still works for me.

You can’t just throw together an outfit and hope for the best. You may get lucky a few times, but there’s a system in place. This easy-to-follow 5-step checklist will help you assess every outfit to make sure you look your best every time you step out the door.

HOW TO LOOK YOUR BEST – 5 STEP CHECKLIST

How to dress nice

1. DOES IT FIT?

One of the first things you need to know when it comes to looking and being fashionable is to make sure you’re wearing the right size clothes. This may seem like a no-brainer, but a lot of people walk out of the house wearing clothes that are either too big for them or too small for them. Unless it’s intentional, like wearing a friend’s tee or a pair of slouchy sweaters, make sure your clothes are the right size for you. If you’re going for a trendier look, pay extra attention to point 

2. DO THE COLORS COORDINATE?

Make sure your outfit’s colors match up with you and your personality!

Take a look at your outfit’s color palette and compare it to your personality. Is it neutral, vibrant, or a bit of a contrast? Colors can influence your whole mood, so not only do you want to fit in, but you also want to make sure that the colors match your attitude. For example, if you’re feeling excited and happy, you don’t want to overpower that with all black.

You can choose a color palette that matches your mood, or you can use color to help you get out of a funk.

3. IS IT FLATTERING?

Are your best features showing through? Does your clothing flatter your curves?

This is not just true for your sexiest jeans, but for every single item in your closet. Every piece needs to accentuate your curves.

No matter what your body shape is, you want to have a defined waist because it will make you feel sexier!

4. IS IT BALANCED?

If you’re aiming for something intentionally bigger, pair it with a slimming piece. For example, if you’re wearing a loose-fitting sweater and black leggings, or a slimming pencil skirt, the loose-fitting top will work well with the slimming bottom. 

5. WHAT DOES THIS OUTFIT SAY ABOUT ME? 

Your clothing speaks for itself, so make sure it conveys the message you want it to.

The first impression is the most important. It’s the one people make of you, and it’s the first impression they make of you. Whether you want them to or not, people will judge you, so make sure they judge you the way you want them to.

CONSIDER THE DAY AHEAD

The first thing to think about is what day you have ahead of you. What kind of outfit do you want to wear? Is it a busy day of meetings and people-watching? Do you want to look strong and confident? Or do you want to look your best for a day of wine tasting with your closest friends?

After you’ve picked out your clothes, it’s time to add shoes and accessories. Shoes will add a touch of glamour to a simple look, while accessories will give your outfit a different vibe depending on what you want it to look like.

As you practice putting together outfits, you’ll start to see what looks good on you and why some pieces work together better than others. As with most things, the more you practice, the easier it will get.

DRESS NICER WITH AN ORGANISED CLOSET

Having a well-organized closet will make all of the above tips a lot easier. Once you’ve cleaned and organized your closet and determined what you want to keep, you will have a closet that’s color-coordinated with all of your dresses, blouses and jackets, as well as jeans, sweaters, pants, skirts, etc. 

You’ll know exactly where to find your favorite jacket and the perfect pair of shoes to go with it. When your closet is well-organized and filled with the clothes you adore, getting ready becomes a breeze because you know that every item in your closet is in style. There’s nothing that’s ripped, stained, not fitting, or not flattering.

FINAL THOUGHTS

I hope this guide answers some of your questions about how to dress well and look great every day! Don’t think of this checklist as something you can use on a daily basis, not just for special occasions.
