I went to the streets to find out what people think about ostentatious, casual or classy dressing on a daily basis.
The basic truth is that, against dressing to attract or seek to attract attention, admiration, or envy often by gaudiness or obviousness, which is ostentatious dressing, a lot of people prefer casual or classy dressing.
Whether you’re going out with your friends or you’re heading to the office on a casual Friday, a laid-back style is the best way to go. Casual dress code typically consists of jeans, T-shirts, and cardigans.
If you prefer skirts and sneakers, go for it! This is a relaxed and comfortable type of dressing!
During the rains, a lot of people do not appreciate dressing in a big way.
People who are mobile prefer casual or classy dressing instead of ostentatious dressing.
While traveling, both men, women and children in Nigeria today prefer casual dressing due to the uncertainties on the roads. Bad roads has its toll while the kidnappers make their huge impact, making it imperative for travelers to dress classy, casual or simple.
However, those who do not have mobility can afford classy but never ostentatious dressing because it looks absurd.
Yet, personal style is something that each of us has; we just have to identify it, understand it, and then live it. It projects our mood, personality, and make one to wholly, reflect on our interests, lifestyle, inspirations, and our past.
When you find your personal style you know you look great and feel confident when you leave your home.
Classic, timeless clothing made of materials that will last well into the next decade is what you should be looking to add to your essential wardrobe. Think cotton, wool, linen, and silk. These four basic fabrics will stand the test of time if cared for properly. Cleaned and pressed, items made of these fabrics tend to give off a classy vibe all on their own.
Dressing classy requires a bit of modesty — no midriff-baring tops, revealing low décolletage, or mini skirts.
Necklines are typically collared, boat neck, crew neck or V-neck. For some variety, you can also try square, cowl, and scoop necks. For more formal occasions, asymmetrical, sweetheart and halter necklines work as well. Regardless, keep your cleavage and your belly button covered. Additionally, armholes on blouses and dresses should not reveal your bra.
Simple jewelry is the best way to go when aiming for a classy and sophisticated style.
