Choosing the right outfit for the day can have a massive impact on how you look and feel for that day. Picking the right outfit for the day ahead is something that many people struggle with. But most of us will need to make this decision pretty much every day, and being able to feel good in what we wear and choosing the best apparel for you can be an important choice.
So what do you need to know about picking the right outfit for the day?
How Do You Want to Feel?
Each day ahead will require different things from us. We will encounter different people and different situations, so thinking about the day ahead and how you want to feel can have a massive impact on what you choose to wear.
If you have a big meeting at work, you may want to decide on an outfit that helps you to feel more confident and powerful, while a leisurely day out or a date might have you choosing for something you feel comfortable in to give you one less thing to worry about.
What Is The Weather Like
Checking the weather forecast for the day ahead can help you to narrow down your choices and dress appropriately. The last thing you want is to leave home only to find it is expected to rain and you have no jacket. The weather forecast can be instrumental in choosing an appropriate outfit and accessories for the day to help you stay comfortable and protected.
What Are You Doing That Day, and Who Will You Be Seeing?
Different situations and life events call for different outfits and attitudes. Never underestimate the power of the right outfit for the scenario you will be facing. Take into account what you will be doing, for example, a lot of walking would lean towards having more practical and suitable footwear, heading to court would require you to dress smartly and for confidence.
How do you see the day going in your head, and what do you have in your wardrobe that can help you prepare for the day's events? Call upon a trusted family member or friend to run through ideas with you to make sure you have dressed appropriately for the occasion.
Putting Together The Right Outfit for The Day
Following a few simple methods to help you piece together the right outfit can help make sure you are dressed for success no matter what the day holds for you.
It is important to remember that your outfit needs to make you feel good and be practical for the day's activities. The better you feel in your outfit, the more accomplished you will feel before you even get going!
Layering your outfit and breaking it down can help you assemble the best apparel, dresses, shoes and accessories. Choose your first layer; this could be a top, dress or even jumpsuit that functions as your first layer.

Next if needed, you need to choose an appropriate item of clothing for your bottom item, be it skirts, shorts or trousers. This all depends on the factors mentioned above. Keep the formality of the day in mind and forecasted temperatures when choosing what type of clothing item is best for the bottom part of your body.

Jewelry is always a great way to accentuate your outfit and is an ideal finishing product once your outfit is complete. Choose classic understated pieces and minimal jewelry for outfits that really have the wow factor. You don't want to overcomplicate the look with too much going on. Alternatively, the right jewelry pieces can really turn a simple classic look into more of a statement style.

Choosing appropriate shoes for the occasion is a must. Depending on the day's activities and the outfit you have put together, finding the best shoes that compliment your look and provide you with support and comfort is always a good option. Choose colourful shoes that will pop against a plain, more subtle outfit or vice versa when the out needs to do the talking, not the shoes.
Avoid choosing shoes that don't match your style purely for comfort reasons, and again the last thing you want to do is step out in sandals or open-toed shoes when a downpour is a forecast.

Lastly, do you need anything to finish off your look? Be it a hat, handbag, belt or other clothing accessories. Think out of the box when it comes to making your accessories part of your outfit. For example, if you have chosen a power suit for an important meeting, why not look at adding braces under your jacket for a more formal and stylish look or an oversized bag with oversized sunglasses for a day at the beach or out for dinner with friends. Plus, the bag is handy for carrying everything you need and keeping your belongings safe.
Choosing the right outfit for the occasion can be done easily once you have taken into consideration exactly what you will be doing and the impact you need to make. By making choices based on the factors in this article, you can work through your wardrobe and put together an outfit that not only looks good but makes you feel amazing and is exactly what you need to face everything that day will throw at you. It may take some experimenting, but once you find your style, it will be easier to put together an outfit every day, no matter what you are doing.
