It’s the age old debate… Do women dress for men, themselves or to bring out the green eyed monster in other women?
I feel us as women love to begin our days with choosing a statement outfit to go out and challenge the world in. But have a think and wonder, when you are beautifying yourself, who are you thinking about when you put on that new Chanel? Yes we all dress for compliments and we like compliments from both sexes, and lets face it, its much harder to impress your girlfriends over your boyfriend. Half the time your man may not even notice that you are wearing your PJ’s out to the club?
In this issue I think we cans split it up into three areas…
We dress for ourselves?
Most women tend to dress for them selves. We must all admit that shopping and finding that perfect outfit does make you feel happy, sexy and confident. And lets face it, at the end of the day, you’re the one wearing and feeling comfortable in it, so half the time you don’t even want or need someone else’s approval? Dressing for us is probably the best way to go about life, if you are worrying all the time about who will notice and what others are thinking, you will never lead a creative, outgoing fashionable wardrobe, due to you will be too scared to wear what you really like. Embrace the inner fashionista.
Ok we have to admit, we have all had a taste of the green-eyed fashion monster? You know, half the time when I am out and about, im not looking for good looking men, im looking for the latest Jimmy Choo’s that have just stepped of the runway. It’s a womanly thing I think, every women will notice and judge what other women are wearing. Its fantastic getting a compliment from another women, we are on the same level here girls and we really can make or break some-one with our harsh or observatory words. I think a high number 1 reason on why we dress for other women, is the ex-factor. If we know we will be seeing our partner’s ex-girlfriend then of course that whole two hours before we meet her, we are manic. The right outfit has now become a top high listed priority, this one can not be wrong. This is where two women will battle it out on the fashion field.
We dress for men?
Now, this is an interesting one. Single or attached pays a huge role in how we dress. Single, us women are always inclined to show a little more when out on the town, wouldn’t you agree? But not too much otherwise you could look tacky. I mean its great for men to notice us, but in the right way. Even in an relationship im sure you find you will dress for your man. There is nothing better than when your man notice’s and comments on your outfit.
I personally dress for myself. I mean, yes I do have a fashionable boyfriend who notices what I wear, but I whole heartily dress to how im feeling and what I think looks good on me. But then again if I know im seeing an ex-partner or a partners ex, then maybe…erkkk, just a little I will dress to impress them! Who wouldn’t, we are all mammals with feelings, right?
Well what ever the reason and who ever you dress for, at the end of the day make sure you wear it with a smile. Any outfit will look 100% with a smile 🙂
