I have to admit that sometimes I play “dress-up” at home. Do you do it to? You try on your clothes and parade about in front of the mirror, and all is well. But the problem is that you’ve got nowhere to wear your great get-ups! Yes, we’ve all worn cool outfits to the hip coffee shop, dates, or nights out on the town. If you are looking for somewhere completely new to try your latest creative outfit, check out these fresh options.
1. To The Gym
Dressing up for the gym? No way! Ha!
I laughed too when I first thought of this. But then I tried wearing my favorite eighties tank-top to my next sweat session and I got a ton of complements. Working out can be a slog. Make it more fun by dressing up a bit, and see what happens!
You don’t have to wear a hat and dress like the woman staying fit in this photo from the early 1900s. Did you know the Titanic had a gym?
2. A Video With Your Online Community
Get glammed up and shoot a video for Youtube or Facebook! We all have friends and acquaintances all around the world. Why not share your style in a new and fun format with the people you care about?
3. Your Next Job Interview
This is a bold move but so exciting to try, especially if you are applying for a creative or fun-spirited position. Want to hostess at the hottest breakfast place in town? Express your personality with a bold, bright outfit and see what they think! Creative outfits can show that you are open, outgoing, inspired, or confident. Employers love to see those qualities!
4. A Friend Date
Dating apps have come up with a new twist… have you heard? Instead of just meeting potential partners online, we can meet new friends! Find an individual who shares your interests, passions, and would make a great social fit for you (according to whatever personality wizardry apps use these days!). A playful outfit will be a great way to break the ice!
5. The Farmers Market
Brows the stalls for organic veggies in your hippy-chic skirt and a flowing top, and pick up some fresh flowers while you are at it! What a fun way to wear the perfect ensemble out in your community.
Don’t let your amazing matching vintage outfits go to waste! Find fun new ways to wear them out in public instead of waiting for the right time to wear them. The time is now! Enjoy, and let me know how your friend date goes in the comments section below.
