3 Rules of lady fashion etiquette
What are the 3 questions to ask for fashion etiquette?
One of my favorite compliments has always been, “You look very classy.” Everything about this compliment is a good thing for the giver and receiver. If the giver notices this, that means they are trained to notice these characteristics. If you are the receiver, that means that you cared enough about your body, and your fashion to make this statement. This does not mean you are spending thousands of dollars on a Gucci bag (trust me, I’m so cheap). I remember last time, I was wearing a t-shirt, jeans, boots, my hair in a pony tail with a natural makeup look carrying some books. (Of course, this could be a pick-up line, but it’s a very nice one at that.) I have three rules that I always follow for fashion etiquette and I am sharing them in hopes this will help give some guidance for those that might be unsure.
These are the 3 questions you must ask yourself with every outfit for fashion etiquette.
- Too short
- Too tight
- Too much cleavage
What is “too” much you ask? Well let’s go over the fine details. Are my shorts, dress, or skirt too short? A good rule of thumb (even in elementary school) was, is it beyond the tips of your fingers with your arms resting at your sides? Then yes, it is too short. Now you can give or take a couple of inches. Overall, use this rule for fashion etiquette. If people can see the curve or your ass, then you might as well start dancing and ask for tips, because that is the uniform for a stripper.
Is my dress too tight? Or how about my leggings? If you pull the cloth away from your skin and it pinches back to your skin, this can be an indication it may be too tight. BUT you have an option to offset the tight clothes by wearing something loose on top. If you can see every curve of your body, especially your ass curve and even worse, a camel toe… then its too tight AND too revealing! Ask united airlines!! Let’s just start a new thing…leggings are NOT acceptable as pants. There must be a shirt or dress covering the butt and vagina! They don’t make you look skinnier or sexy either!
Too much Cleavage?
How much is too much cleavage? This may seem like a hard question to answer because of the different breast sizes of women. But we must come to terms with some women will have it easier than others. The rule of thumb is 2.5 inches MAX for cleavage. If you have very large breasts and this is a hard task, I apologize, but this is just very distracting for anyone. Small breasted women can wear a very low shirt with almost no line to show for cleavage. It makes it easier for them to get away with a low-cut shirt. let’s just keep the rule 2.5 inches for fashion etiquette purposes. If you aren’t sure…measure it or send it to me. Ill give you an honest opinion.
The next step is to make sure you do not have all three of these together. Too much cleavage, too short, and too tight just sounds like a night out in Vegas for your 21st shebang. I say this over and over, “There is a time and a place for everything!” And yes… Vegas gets to be that lucky place where these 3 rules are forgotten. Sin city right? ?
“There is a time and a place for everything.”
If you want to be an extra classy lady, you won’t practice any of these 3 rules for top fashion etiquette. Think about it, have you ever seen the cleavage of Catherine, the duchess of Cambridge? The shape of her rear in yoga pant? Or how about her silhouette? Didn’t think so.
