Wild About Onesies: Where to Wear Them With Pride

Where can you wear a onesie without looking like an escaped mental patient? If you are one of a growing number of all-in-one converts the answer to that question will undoubtedly be ‘everywhere’, but no matter how comfortable and warm you might feel when wearing it society is simply not ready for the sight of you in your onesie. All-in-ones are simply not acceptable forms of outerwear in this day and age unless you are an eccentric billionaire or a member of One Direction. To avoid ridicule and possible incarceration, it is usually advisable to keep your onesie safely behind closed doors and not venture further than your front doorstep. However, if you have a burning need to show the world just how fabulous you look in an adult romper, the following style tips will help you pull off one of the most difficult fashion trends the world has ever seen.

How to Accessorize Your Onesie

The centuries old style advice of ‘less is more’ has never been truer than when it comes to the onesie. Loud animal prints or neon stripes are great for the home, but stick to neutral block colours for outside. A simple black onesie with minimal make up and a pair of converse trainers will create a casual, laidback look that will not cause too much of a stir. Heading out in a tiger print onesie complete with ears and tail will leave you open to some well-deserved staring and pointing. Shoes are extremely important when it comes to rocking the onesie when out and about, and simple sport shoes in a matching colour are your one and only option. If you have to wear high heels, an ultra-trendy boiler suit teamed with some statement jewellery and big hair is a better choice, and this style is currently enjoying a comeback this season thanks to Cheryl Cole. The onesie is designed for ultimate comfort and should always be understated, but that doesn’t mean you can commit the unforgivable fashion crime of teaming it with a pair of Uggs.

Where You Can Wear It

Once you know how to make your onesie fit for public consumption, the amount of places you can where it will greatly increase. A trip to the local supermarket provides the perfect opportunity, and running small errands such as picking up dry cleaning, a trip to the hairdresser or simply walking the dog through the local park are all acceptable venues for onesies. Camping holidays, festivals and charity events are also perfect locations, and a onesie also doubles up as the easiest fancy dress costume in history.

Where You Probably Shouldn’t Wear It

Any nightclub that will actually allow you through the door in a onesie is probably not the kind of establishment that you will want to be seen in, unless of course you are in Essex where they are mandatory. Never wear one to work unless you were already planning on getting fired, and showing up to court in a onesie will probably add extra years onto your sentence. Picking your kids up from school in your onesie will relegate them to the status of social lepers until graduation, and hosting dinner parties whilst wearing one will definitely creep out your guests.

Always remember that the onesie is only a small step up from your regular pajamas, so they will probably never be completely acceptable as outdoor attire. Even 24-hour supermarkets have banned their customers from doing the weekly shop at 4am in their dressing gowns, so that snooty saleswoman shooting you disapproving looks for wearing your onesie to Tiffany’s is well within her right. If you enjoy standing out from the crowd, then a onesie will certainly help you on your mission, and no one could ever accuse you of being behind on the latest trends. Every few years a controversial piece of clothing comes into the spotlight, and in the past leather leggings, yoga pants and shoulder pads were all seen as difficult trends to pull off. The lifecycle of a new and original piece of clothing can be compared to German philosopher Arthur Shopenhaur’s three phases of truth which states “First, it will be ridiculed. Secondly it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.”

Time to go vintage

When most of us dress, we do so with the intention of looking great in the real world. However, sometimes we find ourselves in situations where we’re going to be on camera, whether it’s for a TV appearance or a wedding where guests will be filmed.

While tips that make you look great on camera aren’t entirely dissimilar from tips that make you look great in real life, there are a few specific things to keep in mind when you’re dressing yourself for film. Here are some tips on how you can dress so you love the way you look when you see the video footage later.

Avoid Loud Patterns and Prints

When shopping online, you might find yourself looking at a patterned dress that looks great on the site, looks great in real life, but ends up looking odd or even obnoxious on video. This is because patterns can look strange on moving film, even when they look fine in still photographs. This is why it’s a good idea to avoid loud patterns and prints.

Choose Dark and Neutral Colors

Solid colors, especially dark hues, look great on camera for a myriad of reasons. First and foremost, they help to slim us down. Secondly, the camera responds well to one uniform color. When it comes to dressing yourself to be on film, you really can’t go wrong with a little black dress. You’ll look slim and attractive.

Careful With Jewelry and Sparkles

In real life, shiny fabrics and sparkly jewelry is beautiful and eye-catching. But on camera, the way these accessories reflect light can be a bit jarring. If you want to play it safe, try wearing a matte gemstone or a string of pearls. These accessories look lovely on film without being distracting.

Watch How You Do Your Makeup

When it comes to makeup for the camera, matte is the name of the game. Avoid those shiny highlighters and dewy finish foundations, as on camera they just make you look greasy. Instead, pick makeup products that have a matte finish, as they look beautiful on film. Watch out for face powders labeled “high definition,” as they can show up white on camera.

If you follow these tips, you’re sure to love how you look on film when you watch the clips of yourself later. Above all else, never forget to sport a confident smile when the camera is on you.

Five Ways Fashion Is More Than Your Clothing

When it comes to style and fashion, looking fashionable is about more than just picking the right jeans or the right shirt. Clothing isn’t the only aspect of fashion. That’s why it is important to understand more about fashion.

If you pick up a fashion magazine at the store you’ll find more than just dresses and pictures of runway models within the pages. From ads for makeup to fashionable accessories like jewelry and purses, there is a whole world of stuff that you need to have in your walk-in closet, or on your body.

Tattoos

While the world has a love ‘em or hate ‘em relationship with tattoos, those that get them love them. And, like a bag of chips, they normally can’t just stop at one. Your tattoos become a part of your fashion since they are literally a permanent accessory.

If you have tattoos that you are proud of and want to show off you will want to buy clothing that allows you to do that. That could mean short skirts or even open back shirts.

Makeup

Makeup is definitely a fashion accessory, at least for those that wear it. It’s really up to the individual on whether or not makeup is for them, or how much or how little of it to wear. You may want to have fun with your makeup at times, or even tone it down at other times.

There are also so many different things that come with the artistry of makeup. Do you wear lipstick or no? How about blush, eyeliner, or even eyeshadow? And then do you match it with your outfit? It’s all up to you.

Hair

The way you style and cut your hair, and even your choice to dye it or not, is all part of fashion as well. Maybe you prefer to grow yours out long or cut it yourself, that’s all part of your own fashion preferences.

If you want to have even more fun with your hair you can consider buying some wigs. This lets you experiment with different cuts and colors without any commitment.

Accessories

The main accessories that most people wear revolve around jewelry and watches, but those really aren’t the only options. You can wear hair accessories as well. These include things like headbands and barrettes.

Scarves and belts can also make stylish accessory options. Belts can be worn in belt loops or even over longer shirts or dresses. While scarves by be worn around the neck, in the hair, or even as a faux belt.

Shoes

Shoes are another great part of fashion that you can have a ton of fun with. While usually shoes serve a purpose, keeping your feet warm or allowing you to jog without hurting your feet. However, some sure are for style only.

Maybe you want to pair some knee high boots with leggings and an oversized shirt. This is a perfect fall look. While in the warm weather you may match sandals of all kinds with whatever you wear. And, if you dress up a lot you might wear a lot of dress shoes.
