If you’ve never worn a dress or skirt before, you’re probably going to be in for a shock.
And if you’ve been following our fashion trends for a while, you’ll be in shock too.
“It is very much the fashion of the future,” said fashion writer and fashion blogger, Anna Doolin.
While the word “fashion” is often used as a catch-all term for anything you can buy online, there are a few things that are more important than what you can get online.
Anna Doolan said you need to get your hands on a pair of pants or a dress before you can be confident in the way you’re wearing them.
“There are so many things you need that you’re going to need, you know, a skirt, a top, a blouse, a dress and it’s going to all come together in a way that you can’t buy it online,” she said.
The more you can acquire, the better you’ll look, she said, adding that this is what is important to remember before you go to the party.
“It’s a very difficult thing to be able to walk into a store and get the thing that you need and it can be intimidating because it’s not what you would normally expect,” she explained.
“But I just always think of the girl I was with the other day, that was really brave.”
Doolin has a series of fashion tips for women and men that she hopes will help make your shopping experience a little less stressful, and less expensive.
If you can only afford a dress, she recommends buying a dress that you like rather than buying a new one that you don’t.
“You don’t want to buy a dress because you’re worried about what you’re gonna wear it with,” she suggested.
“If you want to be super-sexy, then go for something that you love.”
Doolan recommends purchasing a dress online.
She said you can always find a dress on sale online, and when you do, theres a big selection of dresses and skirts to choose from.
“Buy a dress in a style that you enjoy, so that you are not looking at a bunch of skirts, and you’re not looking for a lot of colours, and then you’re just going to wear it,” she told ABC News.
“And then you can put it on and you can wear it anywhere.”
Anna said if you are a fashion-obsessed girl, she wants you to be careful about the way that she dresses, and to be very careful with the way she wears it.
“Be careful about what’s underneath it.
I’m not saying don’t wear it under clothing, but be careful,” she advised.
She said she would also recommend you keep the same colours in your dressing gowns and skirts.
Dress shopping is not just for women though, and if you’re a man, Doolen advises you to keep your clothes clean and neat.
“I’ve been doing this for years, I’ve been wearing my clothes the way I would normally wear them, and I just don’t ever want to wear the same colour as another person, so I just think, ‘Oh, this is the right way to wear them’,” she said with a laugh.
Anna Dulan says you should never wear a dress unless you are confident in its fit, style and style.
Doolins tips are great for a range of genders, but if you want a little help with that, Anna recommends looking for advice online from fashion expert, Lillian, a model and photographer.
Lillian has over 100,000 Instagram followers, and shares advice on everything from buying clothes to finding the perfect party outfit.
“We’re really into everything from a little bit of advice for newbie to expert, so if you don, like, you’ve got some stuff that you really need to know about and you want some help, I think we’ve got you covered,” she shared on Instagram.
Doolina says you can purchase a dress from a variety of outlets, but she does recommend checking with your local department store.
“Find out what’s on sale, what’s not on sale and what the prices are,” she recommended.
“Don’t just buy one dress online and then go, ‘I want that dress’, because you’ll never know what’s going on.”
