Fashion Pieces I am loving this spring

This spring has been unusually warm. We have had little or no rain these last few weeks, and since we are usually indoors thanks to the lockdown, I am only comfortable in light airy clothes. I have been busy doing some online shopping. The kiddies needed a few fashion items for home, so I took the golden opportunity to get some spring items for myself. I have literally been living in short, skirts, light spring trousers  and dresses. Anything else leaves me way too warm.

Here are some of the fashion pieces I am loving this spring –

Dress code basics for men: a career in law

For most of us, learning how to dress ourselves started around preschool age, where we would become infatuated with the idea of wearing a certain garment or pair of shoes all day every day. Next, we’d learn to tie our own shoelaces. There was no stopping us after that. Henceforth, we were dedicated followers of fashion, albeit a certain type of misguided self-chosen style of peculiar fashion, but choices were made nevertheless. School clothes were largely taken care of by school uniform requirements, and our adolescent ‘jeans and tee-shirt’ phase was basically down to a choice of colour. But what happens when we get into the world of work? There’s no training for this. Everyone is just expected to know what to wear. And what about if you have gone into a career in law, where presentability is not just expected but is demanded. What then? Today, we’re going to look at what men can wear for a career in law.

Why your dad’s old suit won’t do

OK. So, you’ve landed your first major position working at a law firm. Whether you’re the new face around the offices in a debt litigation company in London, or whether you’re carving your new career as a car accident lawyer from New Orleans, there’s a universal truth about your look that will go with you from role to role in the legal arena: you need to look sharp. If you’ve turned up in a borrowed suit that’s one size too big or small, you will be noticed for the wrong reasons. How you look says something about how seriously you want people to take you. If you look like a bag of rags has sprouted arms, legs, and an apologetic smile, you aren’t going to create the impression your employer needs you to create when meeting clients. This is a problem. Presentability can pave the way for trustworthiness, and that can mean the difference between clients seeing their business through with your firm or taking their money elsewhere.

What to wear?

For men, the law firm dress code is simple. A fitted suit in black, grey, or brown, with a simple white shirt (or light pastel coloured shirt), a block colour necktie that hangs to the belt buckle, and polished shoes in black or brown that look new. You can also get away with a minimalist V-neck jumper or sweater in colder weather. Keeping tattoos covered and jewellery to the maximum of the rule of three (watch, ring, and one earring if desired) can also bring about a clean-cut appearance.

 

How to buy cheap dresses online

The warmer months are on the way and it is time to start think of spring/summer outfits. I love wearing dresses in the spring/summer months. The fact that I can show off my legs without tights is amazing after months of wearing layers. Dresses are super easy to style in the warmer months. I like to have quite a few dresses to wear on a daily basis when the weather allows me. Which is why I am always on the lookout for cheap dresses online. When it comes to most things, you do get what you buy for. So if you buy cheap, you get cheap. However, that isn’t necessarily the case when it comes to buying dresses. It is possible to buy cheap dresses online and get decent pairs for your little change.

I love buying quality items so I tend to spend more usually because I wear my pieces for years and years to come. But sometimes, I just want to shop for cheap dresses to wear in the summer. I also love shopping for cheap dresses for girls as well, for my little diva.

Here are some ways you could go about buying quality but cheap dresses online –

Shop the sales

This is the first way to go about shopping for anything online. It is always sensible to target the sales for items you have on your Wishlist. For cheap dresses, you can get loads online whilst the sales is on. Many high street stores have huge sales on and off all through the year. I buy many of my summer dresses online during the sales. It is great because I could save over 50% of the initial RRP. Shopping the sales is the first way to buy cheap dresses online.

 

Shop tried and tested brands

When shopping online, you should be very careful and shop only on websites you have successfully shopped on before. I avoid unknown brands online to avoid any surprises. Many of these new brands will send you pieces that look nothing like what they have photography on their website. So do be mindful of that while shopping online. Also, buying from tried and tested brands means you will buy the dresses in the right size as well. Many of us have different sizes from shop to shop. This is easily taking care of when you shop with brands you know already.

 

Go for pieces you can style in different ways

It makes to shop for dresses you can style in different ways. That way you get more wear out of them. I love items I am able to dress up and down. That way I can wear it on a casual day out and on a date as well. Buying dresses that can’t be styled in different ways or worn to various places means it is likely to get buried in your wardrobe for months.

If in doubt, read reviews

This is where consumers and fashion bloggers come in. If you are unsure of a particular dress or brand, always look out for reviews. That way, you get to read an unbiased (hopefully) review and can decided if you want the piece or not. A quick Google search with the dress and brand details will likely bring you up to speed.
