Ever felt like déjà vu when dressing up? Especially when gearing up for another week at work or school? Yeah we know that feeling too, though in Wonderland, it’s quite more flexible since we’ve got dearest Mad Hatter as our stylist! *wink*
Classy Monday, it’s time to dress as formally possible to adhere the ruling system. Just think Red Queen’s entourage in their matching colours of red (of course!), yeah that pretty much sums it. Well, you can still look corporate-ish but with a touch of class, put on a structured jacket or perhaps if you’re bold enough a corset vest! Get that clean look with a swept up ponytail or a tight bun do.
Colours like navy blue, grey, white, black, cream and beige are strongly suited to properly achieve the look but try to be bold by accessorizing a bit with chunky gold/bronze bracelets, or layered chains.
To add a zest of colours go for colourful rocks on those slender fingers! That’ll sure to pop. Bags, yes that’s an all time essential for us ladies so go for something that’s functional yet classy but it doesn’t have to necessary be a boxy briefcase or an oversize hobo. You can always opt for those with faux leather materials even if you’d still love for a splash of colours. *wink*
Girly Tuesday makes it a whole lot easier for us, there’s no need for an exact dress code! *phew* So put on your flirty girly look I say, because what’s better than a girly Tuesday, right? Put on a dress; tie a scarf around the neck, whatever it is, make it your own as it’s the day to let down your hair and don’t forget hairpieces make a great statement piece! *grin*
For those who love light flouncy material, opt for a tiered chiffon dress or top. That’ll sure to add volume in all the right places. Colours plays a role too so don’t be stingy with that, but sure enough, prints are the easier way to go. Floral prints are very much in, just don those pastel hues and it’ll sure to make you appear more feminine.
For make-up, minimal is the best, so go with an au naturel look instead by focusing on one and only one feature, your best of course. And last but not least the bags, go with something quirky flirty, something that goes from class to the park or mall; but nothing too baggy or too small, just practical enough of course.
Mid of the week and things are slowly slowing down again, with work starting to pile up and yet you’re all probably looking forward for end of the day for a dose of American Idol because hooray it’s Wednesday! Well though some might head home for a couch potato session there’s no reason to not opt for a chic look throughout the day. *wink*
Chic Wednesday is here to suit both work and play. It’s the best combination that’ll leave you looking the part without going OTT on the whole. Get neutral pieces and mix and matched or better yet opt for pieces that says work on the top and play down below or vice versa. It’s all about getting the right match by mixing it up a bit. Sheer blouse with crisp pants, or structured top with bandage skirts.
Now, once you’ve got the right look going, the makeup should complement the look of course and remember still, less is more. But this time, play it up a little with your eyes or lips by opting rather bold colours. As for hair, you don’t exactly need to get a whole new haircut to achieve the Rihanna do or those celebrities you love to adore, just put in some product and tease it a bit, that ought to do the trick. *wink*
Of course other essentials would come to the right accessories, and always go for something that screams or rather just bling. Go for cutesy charm bracelets or chandelier earrings. Chunky rings works just fine anyway. But most importantly is the bag! Go for something sophisticated yet pretty and screams Serious Fun! Colours are an in thing these days but go for something with a rather glossy finish.
Tick the clocks keeps going and Funky Thursday is here to bring some cheering fun time because it’s nearing the end of the tiresome cycle once more. Spread some cheer and fun around by putting on some funky vibe to your style in dressing even if you’ve got that important client meet or presentation to give.
This is the very day to really play with the colour palette. Add some funky items, to your dressing and that’ll sure to take one from drab to fab, not that you ever were of course. It’s just that week after week most of us would run out of clothes to wear so I say, recycle what you’ve already got and just play it up a bit.
Go for colourful tops, from pastels to bright neons, either way you can never go wrong. If it’s a two piece go for a monochrome bottom so as to not make you a walking billboard because none could actually pull the colour mosaic look better than Agyness Deyn, but if you’re bold enough, we say why not?!
When it comes to achieving the right amount of funkiness, the hairstyling part of it is just to go for sleek or completely messy, because even bed head looks great nowadays! Take a note from miss Fame Monster herself, Lady Gaga sure dress funky enough. Makeup as usual, you can either go for neutral or extreme stage looks.
Accessorizing would be the most fun exciting phase of dressing up on Thursday, because you can always go with candy necklaces even, colourful items, or even glow in the dark gladiator heels like those that both Fergie and Katy P loves to love and wear! As for bags, just go for something that says crazy beautiful with colours or patterns, geometrical to be exact and the less than convenient material or feel.
Finally, Casual Friday arrives with a laidback feel to it for the weekend arrives with promises of some sleep in, fine dining, great conversation and intriguing companions. As Mad Hatter would say, casual is always the best way though perhaps his interpretation would mean a top hat and some double breasted jacket. But of course a pair of jeans won’t do much justice so go for something less but more we say!
Put on an oversized printed tee, not the usual statement ones but those with animal prints, a face of the wolf for all you New Moon fans, or tigers and even lions as well. Add a little bowler hat, fedora or even mail boy cap and voila your bad hair day woes (if you’re having one) are hidden from the rest of the world’s view!
Instead of going for the usual boot-cut or even straight cut, go for a wide leg or high waisted jeans instead! That’ll give more depth apart from adding some length. Opt for flats, like pumps, flats and even sneakers instead. That foot needs some loving rest too apart from completing the casual look. Throw on a vest or a hooded cardigan if you must!
Makeup should be at minimal as its back to basics once more. Prep your skin the night before with a dab of toner and night moisturizer for a little more balance. Go for a lip balm instead or if you must some lip stain. Keep the glow with a lightly dabbed blusher and you’re ready to go.
A leather wristlet or band would be perfect, or go for long chains around the neck. Layer them as it’s the current trend, or go for those with intricate lockets instead. The key to a casual look is simplicity and minimalism. So again, less is more.
Finally, that one last piece before you walk out the door, don’t forget your bag! The best is to go for something vintage yet casual. Go for lazy materials like denim or canvas. Opt for a sling bag instead, for it’ll give a more laidback feel. If you’re still a shoulder bag fan, go for something that has both. *wink*
Hopefully, we’ve helped you get some ideas on how to spice your week a little. You can always mix them up a bit and not go with the same cycle every other week, just shuffle them around. Have fun dressing up, because we did while writing this for you!
