Stylish Ways to Wear Simple Clothes



While most of us love an elegant outfit, and we enjoy shopping for those special pieces that will really make a statement, these aren’t the main parts of our wardrobe. They are the special events, the things that only get pulled out for special occasions or big nights out. The bulk of your wardrobe might be far more straightforward, e.g. trouser suits and simple shift dresses for work. Jeans and t-shirts for casual lunches and shopping trips or chilling at home. Even your holiday wardrobe might be mainly shorts and tees, basic summer dresses and casual maxis. Simple clothes are great, as they make us feel comfortable. They give us options when it comes to creating outfits. And they are the first things that we turn to when we’re looking for something easy to wear. Maybe you need some stylish ways to wear simple clothes.

But simple doesn’t have to mean basic, and it certainly doesn’t have to mean that you can’t look fabulous. In fact, it’s typically these simple outfits that suit you and fit well, which can look the most stylish with just a little dressing up.

My daughter has always been a nightmare to get to clean her teeth! From an early age, she hated the taste of toothpaste and I spent so much money trying to find one that she likes.

Superpower Your Tomb Raider: A Professor’s Guide to Making Video Games Educational By Noah Charney

My kids love video games. Your kids, I’m sure, love video games. Even I enjoy video games. I loved them as a child (growing up with the original Nintendo Entertainment System, with its 8-bit graphics that seem so charmingly dated now). I like them today, too. And that’s okay. It is not morally reprehensible to let your kids play video games (within reason, of course), and it’s even better if you play with them and they become a chance for bonding, a shared experience.

5 reasons to be a good driver

Everyone on the road should be a good driver. But what does that mean? A good driver is alert, respectful of others and follows the rules. They abide by the speed limit and know what all the signs mean. They won’t put their own needs above others or sacrifice safety for convenience.

All drivers should be good drivers. Everyone passes a test before going on the road, and shouldn’t become complacent as soon as they lose their L plates. But, unfortunately, this isn’t the case. Many people lose incentive. So, why should you aim to be a good driver?
