Yes, we know the importance of teaching the next generation about working for what they want, having an educated opinion, and contributing positively to society. We also know the importance of passing on the values and traditions of our families. But what some people might be surprised to hear is that it is SO important to pass on the importance of fashion to our next generations.
Every stitch of what you wear says something about you. All the way down to your undergarments. We are reminded of the movie The Devil Wears Prada when Merle Streep tells Anne Hathaway that what “regular people” wear is actually a direct result of some high fashion designers and editors.
Some trends we see aren’t meant for all body types. It’s important to note what fits you best and what makes you look like a lady. Not everything works on everyone!
We spoke earlier about undergarments: let’s go there. It is so important to plan ahead. No one wants to see through your dress when you are outside or in a bright place. If you can see the outline of your legs through your dress, add a slip under the skirt. If it’s a short skirt, wear a short slip. If it’s a long skirt, wear a long slip. We know we sound like your grandmother- but it’s little details like that which set you into a “wow, she really cares” category. If you prefer a certain type of underwear for goodness sakes make sure it is appropriate for the bottoms you are wearing! Seeing the outline of a thong is far from ladylike.
We aren’t perfect- never claimed to be. However we do try our best to instill sound dressing skills in our young ladies in out lives.
If you aren’t a teen, we challenge you to do the same. Be an example. All ages are watching- but the most influential need is that you to lead them in the right direction.
Let’s help the younger generations know that while they are looking for their own special style which is unique to them, they do need to do it with taste and charm. Walking the walk instead of just talking the talk!! Let’s inspire them to aspire to hold both their heads and their standards high!!
