WEARING PRINTED DRESSES FOR SPRING AND SUMMER
Today we'll talk about styling printed dresses for spring and summer. I think printed dresses are a great option for summer and spring. They are a statement piece in themselves. Prints and patterns are always fun. There are lot of different printed dresses one can choose from. There are the more classical prints like stripes, polka dots, floral and animal prints. Modern prints such as stars, hearts, comic book or graphics are also a good option. If you're adventurous, you can also choose a mixed print dress. If you don't like bold prints, you can opt for more subtle ones. I have all kinds of printed dresses in my closet and I wear them often. I often wear my printed dresses in the colder months as well. With the help of layering, printed dresses can be virtually worn in any season. With the start of spring, I decided to think of different ways to style my printed dresses. I'm definitely looking forward to it.
DIFFERENT WAYS TO STYLE PRINTED DRESSES
What I like about printed dresses is that there are many ways to style them. You can opt for something more classical and pair your printed dress with simple accessories for a more clean look. Alternatively, you can choose to wear bold accessories and layers. Dressing up printed dresses up and down is pretty easy as well. It is easy to dress them down with sneakers and dressed them up with heels. For spring, a simple pair of heeled sandals or mules might be the ideal solution to elevate your printed dress. You can also have fun with exploring different tonalities and colours. Prints and patterns come in many shapes and forms. Take floral print for example. You can opt for retro, maxi or mini floral print. Many prints look completely different on a different background. A floral print won't look the same on a mustard and a white background. Dark floral prints can look very elegant styled with blazers. Similarly, white floral prints can be quite elegant as well. Floral for spring is kind of obvious, though. Don't forget to explore other printed options.
LAYERING PRINTED DRESS IN SPRING
There are a lot of options for layering printed dresses in spring. The first thing that comes to my mind is layering your printed dress with a blazer. A nice cardigan is also an option. You can also wear a shirt or a jacket over your dress. Layering in spring is often a necessity.
LAYERING PRINTED DRESSES IN SUMMER
Once you've thought about it, you'll realize there is a number of options. I'll write down some of them for you. You can layer your summer dress by: wearing a vest with it, wearing a blouse, a t-shirt or a shirt over it, wearing a cropped top over it, wearing a body chain over it, wearing a scarf around your waist, wearing a scarf as a poncho, wearing a regular poncho, wearing a skirt over it, wear it with jeans, wear it with leggings, wear it with shorts, wearing a crochet or sheer jacket over it.
IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY WITH HOW THE DRESS FITS YOU
If you're not happy with how the dress fits you or you don't feel confident enough to wear a dress, maybe proper undergarments will help. Shape-wear can never be a substitute for eating healthy and exercising regularly, but it can give you a boost of confidence when you need it. Choosing to wear a corset or something of the kind with a dress might help you feel more confident. If you opt for this kind of undergarment make sure it's something comfortable, such as a latex waist trainer for women. Wearing a belt is also a good option. Belts can be a great way to accentuate your waist. I often wear belts with dresses. Another thing I sometimes do is to layer my dresses under a skirt. That way a dress serves as a sort of under dress and makes sure everything is smooth. When it comes to dresses, undergarments can really make a difference so choose them wisely. If you want something to make everything smooth, than a simple under dress or a slip dress should be enough. If you want to alter your shape or appear slimmer then you need shapewear.
BENEFITS OF OUTDOOR EXERCISE (BECAUSE YOU SHOULDN'T RELY SOLELY ON CLOTHES TO MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER)
1. Digital detox (because sometimes we are tempted to check our phones even on vacay):
Resting our eyes from the screens is pretty important and what better way to do it than by taking in some beautiful landscape in? Exercising outdoors is a great way to remind ourselves that the best panorama is not on Instagram or Pinterest but rather there where we can enjoy it, aka in the real world. Nothing wrong in searching for inspiration online but sometimes we really do need a digital detox.
2. Physical activity (because potato coach lifesytle comes with a health risk):
Great thing about outdoor exercising is that you can adjust it to your fitness levels. It doesn't have to very long or intense if your health or general fitness state doesn't permit. Listen to your body. A slow walk is appropriate even for the elderly and chronically ill. Physical activity is an important aspect of overall health preservation and maintenance.
3. No noise, less stress (because we all need some peace and quiet):
You hear warnings about the dangers of prolonged screen times, but often we are not aware of how much the noise we're exposed to daily can increase our stress levels. Resting our ears might be as important as resting our eyes. Don't underestimate the effect of silence. In addition, nature sounds such as the sound of the waves, a creek or the bird song can have a relaxing effect on many.
4. Fresh air (because our lungs need some TLC as well):
Our lungs works hard and so does our whole body. The air we breathe in isn't always of the best quality. Often we spend our time indoors and we don't get nearly enough fresh air. Even when we do get out (especially if we happen to live in a city), the air we breathe in might be problematic. A typical urban settlement has its own fair share of traffic and we know how polluting the city air can be. Fresh air is obviously beneficial for our lungs and overall health. Fresh air boosts our immune system and spending time outdoors can lower the changes of depression.
5. Inspiration and a change of scenery (because it can boost creativity and make us feel better):
Nature can be a great way to find inspiration and get our creative juices flowing. I always say that the nature is the best artist. Indeed, observing nature (both flora and fauna of some place) can teach us a lot. Working our outdoors can be a perfect way to get inspired and this doesn't only apply to artists or people working in creative field. A change of scenery is a good for anyone really and we all need it sometimes. Best thing about working out outdoors is that it is free. It doesn't cost anything and it is a fantastic way to change up our routine.
