If you’re tired of looking too girly and feminine on your dresses, you may create different looks or fashion style that will give a fresh face on you. Sometimes, looking girly and feminine depends on the style, color, and structure of your dresses that you may want to give some twists. The mind behind the Skinny Liar blog, Iga Wysocka is a Poland-based fashion blogger prominent for her dressy fashion style with modern, classic, breezy, bohemian, laidback, edgy, and retro twists. So, keep on reading to steal her style and create different looks with your dresses.
For a classic and elegant fashion style, think of dresses with simple clean lines, sophisticated design, neutral shades, and feminine structures that look timeless. Looking classic may be known as looking conservative in knee-length hemlines, puffy sleeves, and high necklines. However, you may still look classic and elegant by wearing shorter hemlines that fall just above the knees, dresses with creative but not revealing neckline, as well as dresses in classic shades of red, white, brown, black, and gray. Like Iga, you may still wear prints but stick to classic ones like polka dots, houndstooth, and stripes as too loud or busy prints look modern. Classic elegance is a fashion statement that’s worth learning.
For a modern take on your style, go for modern styles of dresses like asymmetrical cuts, cut out styles, boxy silhouettes, modern and catchy prints, and ones with metallic trims. Like Iga, you may wear an asymmetrical dress and style them with a gold belt and a pair of studded stilettos for a more contemporary feel. Wearing color blocked dresses or accessories may be great, but you may stick to modern silhouettes instead for a more versatile style of your dresses.
If you wish to make your look more summery and breezy, opt for crochet dresses or floral print dresses. Just make sure that the colors of your floral prints are cheery and colorful, as retro floral prints are muted and more subdued. If you’re planning to hit the beach or planning to go to a tropical weather destination, tropical prints in maxi dresses with chic sunglasses and strappy sandals look stylish.
If you still wish to look dressy on your casual street style, opt for denim and jersey fabrics which scream laidback and cool. Sport dresses, shirt dresses, and denim dresses are perfect to look casual while maintaining your feminine vibe. Though wearing sneakers with them may be the most comfortable option you have, you can still resort to chunky boots, wedges, and chunky sandals for a dressier casual look.
Incorporating some edgy touches to your feminine dresses looks stylish. Just think of leather jackets, biker vests, moto jackets, leather gloves, leather boots, edgy accessories and such that can revamp your feminine dress into an edgy one. Black and burgundy are common shades that look perfect when worn with a black leather jacket, but olive green, white, and gray can be great too. Like Iga, just stick to neutral and muted shades to channel your edgy looks perfectly.
You can also create a retro or bohemian look depending on how you’re going to style your dresses. Cowgirl hats, fedora hats, and bowler hats as well as fringe and tassel details on bags and boots are for bohemian style. Denim, leather, and suede fabric can be versatile enough to create any looks, but wearing a suede jacket in earth tone palette of camel, rust, red-orange and brown screams bohemian. Retro fashion is known for tartan prints, chunky boots, and Dr. Marten boots that you may also opt for.
Whatever style you’re into, always go for ones that express your personality like Iga did. After all, fashion is a means of expressing your individuality through the clothes you’re wearing.
