Wearing the Right Shirt for the Right Occasion

01 Jul 2019

With so many tops for women to choose from, it can be difficult to know what to get! Everyone knows that feeling where you look in your closet and have no idea what to wear. It can be easy to feel like you have no clothes even when you see a full closet. At Heirloom, we are determined to help women overcome these types of fashion slumps. 

What’s Your Occasion? 

It is very useful to think about where you spend most of your time. Do you spend most of your time at work, home or school? Pick the top three occasions you spend your time before shopping. Once you are aware of where you spend the majority of your time, it becomes easier to determine what you want for those events. If you spend a lot of time at work, depending on your office’s dress code, you may want to be more dressed up. If you need an outfit for all occasion, we recommend buying basics that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. There are various tops for women that can be dressed up or down depending on the accessories chosen. 


When it comes to tops for women, accessories are the key to making any outfit right for the occasion. For example, any black t-shirt can be dressed up. If you wear your black shirt with a striped pencil shirt and diamond earrings, it automatically looks right for a dressier occasion. If you are looking to be more dressed up, a sheath dress is another example of something that can be dressed up a lot or dressed down for more casual situations.

Overdress or Underdress

It is always more respectful to be overdressed for an occasion, but being underdressed for an occasion is also sometimes fine! If you aren’t sure what is appropriate for your next event, then wear something that can be dressed up or down. Then if you feel uncomfortable you can always remove or add accessories. For example, if you feel overdressed at a casual wedding, you can slip off your diamond earrings and put them into your bag.

The most important thing to remember is to rock the outfits you choose with confidence. Confidence is what ties any good outfit together. There are lots of tops for women to choose from but at the end of the day, each top can be mixed and matched for a perfect combination.
