I really love this quote and I think some women should have this hanging in their room to see everyday when they’re getting dressed.
Too often do I see women with all body types dressing so inappropriately, and with just a little help they could look so much better. Some ideas are so simple but apparently some people just don’t get it.
So here are my tips for keeping it classy ladies
1. If you are showing off your legs with a short skirt or shorts keep it covered up on the top and vise versa. This one seems too easy but some women needed to be reminded of it. I would only say this one is Ok if you’re at the beach.
Here is a good example…..
She has a pair of short jean shorts and her shirt is totally appropriate and covered up and still looks chic and cute. Throw on some flippies for just walkig around or some heeled sandals like she has for a more dressed up look. Some statement jewelry would dress it up too.
Here is a bad example….
This isn’t horrible, I have seen worse, but I think she would look more polished if she had a top that covered her up more. It could be a basic black tee or lightweight sweater. A fun necklace would be cute with this outfit as well. She might want to tone down those wedges too while she’s at it before she breaks an ankle.
They do both have nice legs which helps. another tip I would have is….wear the appropriate short length for your size. I don’t think anyone should be wearing shorts or skirts short enough where we can see something inappropriate but I also think you should be wearing the right length for what size you might wear. My favorite shorts are the 5 inch chino shorts from J Crew. They are the perfect length for me and they look cute with flip flops and wedges for a night out.

2. Empire waist looks good on everyone.
The empire waist is such a great go to silhouette for every body type. If you are plus size or size 4 it hits the body right at the right spot to hide any imperfections you might feel you have. It is also a great silhouette of you’re feeling bloated that day, you don’t have to worry about what your stomach looks like under there.
Here is a great example of a plus size model in an empire waist dress….
This woman looks amazing in this dress, I love it on her. The neckline is classy and the silhouette looks great on her.
This is also a great hemline for a beach dress…
It keeps the dress flowy and comfortable.
3. My next tip would be you don’t have to wear the smallest bathing suit out here you can find.
Look for a fun one piece as an alternative this summer, or a vintage inspired one. I usually try to find something different that no one else will have at the beach.
Here is a vintage inspired bathing suit that I own and I love…
The suit is so classy and different, I just love it, it fits me great too. There are so many fun bathing suits out there, one pieces and two pieces, so have fun with is, you don’t always have to have the itty bitty bikini every year.
4. ok my last tip is….please wear tights if you’re going to wear a short skirt or wool shorts in the winter.
This makes me so angry when there are so many fun colored tights out there getting neglected by girls that like to show their white legs in the dead of winter. They can really add something fun to your outfit, or you can keep it simple and just wear black or brown, that’s fine too. Soon as fall rolls around I cannot wait to wear my tights. One of my favorite looks is shorts with tights. It is always a safe way to go too if you have something real short.
My advice is to keep is classy and sexy at the same time. I personally don’t like to dress with too much showing, and I like to be different. If you’re going out and feel like wearing that tight sexy dress go for it, but no one should be continuously dressing inappropriately. There are so many great fashionable items out there for everyone, utilize them ladies!
