How To Dress To Turn Your Man Into A Fashionable Crisis
What woman doesn’t love a good crisis? Whether you’re a workaholic with a busy schedule or a new mom with a newborn, having your friends, family and workplace all at one location can make the all-important go-to-man days much more manageable. And while there are many ways to look great in a suit and tie at a crisis, there are a few things you should know about dressing to turn your man into a fashionably awkward-at-work woman:
A man is not a fashion cushion to be played with — he is a fashionically awkward man, period. The best way to make him feel comfortable is to match his suit with the part of him that is comfortable. Simple as that. If he’s not comfortable in his own clothes, he won’t be comfortable in yours, and vice versa. The trick is to match his suit with his attire so that neither of you is looking like the other. If you have the courage to do it on your own, then you must have the courage to do it in public! If you’re not sure how to go about it, here are some easy steps you can take to look your best in a crisis.
Ditch the overcoats and ties
If you’re on the outside looking in, you may have the opportunity to see a fashionable new look in officer’s collars, button-ups and button-line jackets. But unless you have a family to feed and a houseful of bills to pay, you don’t really have the time to wear those things every day. They may be nice on special occasions, but they don’t add up over time. You should be able to wear a button-up with a suit on a weeknight, but not the other way around.
Don’t wash your hair too often
Washing your hair is probably one of the most important things you do for a man. Look out for your man’s hygiene when you’re in the midst of a crisis. You don’t want him getting his hair stuck in a clog, or getting his hands on any newspaper articles about what’s happening in the world. Wash your hair about once a week if you have to, but once a month on your own.
Don’t use too much product
Not only is washing your hair too much effort, but it is also a potential source of flashback problems. Remember, when your man is stressed out or in a rush, his hair may come out of control. If you go too long without washing your hair, it will likely become unbalanced and stuck in a clog. This could lead to a oily hair texture, which will make your man’s pores more apparent.
Don’t buy too much at once
Like washing your hair, buying too much at once can cause your man to become distracted and gives him free rein to grow out his hair. It’s also a potential source of long-term exposure to led emissions from your car.
Don’t overthink what to wear
There will always be times when you’re in a rush, or you’re in a position where you have to go to work. Make sure that you’re taking full advantage of the time off work by buying your man all things that make him feel at ease in the workforce.
You don’t want to pay for things that you don’t use, and you don’t have the time to shop for things that you don’t need.
Ditch the heels and platform shoes
If your man is always wearing high-heeled shoes, it’s a sign that he is not comfortable in low-heeled shoes. If you notice this, don’t worry — it’s not the end of the world. Just be aware of it and take better care of yourself.
If you’ve got a man in your life who loves to dress head to toe mint green, there’s a good chance that he is in a state of fashion-agnostic man syndrome. If you can help him out in one respect, it’s to get comfortable in your own clothes. You don’t need to dress like a fashion runway beauty to turn your man into a fashionably relaxed workaholic.
If you’ve got a man in your life who isn’t a fan of wearing suits or ties, it’s probably because he’s never been cross-dressing. Make sure that you’re taking care of yourself by wearing dresses when you go out, and wearing suits when you let yourself go. You don’t need to look like a fashion celebrity when you’re in your element: collecting death threats and answering them with a suit!
Crisp, bright colors are a sure-fire way to turn your man into a fashion-agnostic, sarcastic and overachieving workaholic. If you’ve got the time, I highly recommend the K.A.R.E. check out at the end of the post. A great way to quickly and easily test yourself in a crisis.
