How to Plan Your Outfits for Any Occasion

October 2, 2015

I was initially planning to do a Part II Date Night look for this outfit based on my previous post here, but then I started thinking that we all have moments of “I have nothing to wear” or moments where we are lacking creativity when we are putting outfits together (I must admit I am guilty of both sometimes).  And I think getting dressed should be fun whether your going out with girlfriends, hanging out with family or going on a date with your loved one! So click through to find out how to plan your outfits for any occasion.

How to Plan Your Outfits for Any Occasion

1. Plan your outfit according to the weather.  One thing that I like to do is check the weather forecast and look out the window.  Vancouver’s weather can be unpredictable at times, so carrying around an umbrella is essential.  By checking the weather forecast, you can plan your outfit accordingly so that you won’t be too hot or cold given the weather conditions or save you from getting your open to heels ruined in the rain!

2. Plan your outfit according to the venue or location.   Similar to point #1 above, are you going to be indoors or outdoors?  If you are going to be indoors most of the time, you could probably plan on wear lighter layer clothing and open toe shoes vs. being outside and bundling up with a jacket and boots.  Is the place fancy?  Research or ask your friends what the dress code is so that you are not over dressed or under dressed.  

3.  Plan for the event or occasion that you are going to.  Whether that is going to a family event, wedding, girls night out or date.  For a family gathering, I would plan something casual yet conservative such as a sweater and jeans with boots or sneakers.  For a wedding, I would plan a little black dress as you can never go wrong for that and it can be worn for almost anything and dressed down.  For a date, I would suggest a simple dress with a jean jacket or jeans with a nice top, leather jacket with either boots or heels.

At the end of the day, dressing should be fun and planning your outfits ahead will save you lots of time!  I’m curious to hear your thoughts, how do you plan your outfits? Hope you have a great weekend friends! xo
