Remember the time when you went shopping with you boyfriend and he tried convincing you not get those skinny jeans you’ve been wanting for so long? He might of even recommended the more “conservative” ones, not as tight perhaps? After a long, heated discussion and after he finally left the shop to cool off, the cute salesman, who just wanted to lighten up your mood said jokingly, “Well, keep the jeans and let go of your boyfriend!”
This was one year ago. Today, you are happy and wearing the infamous pair of jeans with a vengeance, but that boyfriend is now your ex!
Indeed, there’s something great about a breakup, but only ofcourse after time healed the wounds he inflicted on you or ... you inflicted on him (well, who cares, it’s over). It is, how shall I say ... a kind of a rebirth. Now, let me rephrase this: it is a rebirth!
Of course, you could fade and become a wallflower, gradually losing all your confidence day after day, month after month, but what good would it do? Or you could take the bull by the horns, revamp your wardrobe and remember who you used to be! Vibrant, sexy, gorgeous. In short: stunning! Yep, that was you before him. Don’t you think it’s time to get back in that saddle?
If you feel the same way as I do, you’ll agree that this moment in your life may call for revenge dressing ... as long as you understand that the clothes will be all about you, not him. You’ll want to look good, just because it will make you feel good, and you really need this right now. Did you know that fire is cleansing? Well, this is the best way to explain why a hot wardrobe is in order after a toxic relationship. In a while, you’ll be able to go back to normal, but for now let me help you to turn up the heat!
Perfect Revenge Dressing: Staples
- Skinny Jeans
A pair of booties too hot to handle are exactly what you’ll need to wear with your favorite skinny jeans. This style of denim is the number one staple for any girl who wants to do revenge dressing the right way. The best medicine for a broken heart? Go ahead and pair the jeans with the tiniest cropped jacket you’ll find. It’s all about being chic and showing off what you’ve been blessed with at the same time!
- Mini Skirt
After skinny jeans, the mini skirt is next on the list. You’re allowed to do something you won’t regret in six months, after you are cured and ready to enter ... the next relationship! Choose a very short mini skirt. Do you get the picture? Very short, mini and if this doesn’t scream revenge then I wonder what does. Add an oversized sweater instead of a body-hugging top to create a stylish silhouette, because this revenge outfit should be all about your legs. No need to overdo it.
Oh yes, leather definitely belongs in a revenge wardrobe. A stylish biker jacket paired with an alluring mini skirt and eye-catching over-the-knee boots screams badass and unapologetic. If anybody should apologize, it’s him for what he did to you!
- Party Shoes
Because you will, from now on, be the belle of the ball, sparkly footwear needs to find its place in your closet. And I’m not just talking about one pair for partying in heavy rotation that you are about to do, but opt at least for two or three pairs of shoes with a shimmery attitude.
- Plunging Neckline
A sumptuous top with a trendy deep V-neck is a must in 2017. You lack the confidence? Just fake it until you make it, because this moment in time is perfect for you to channel your inner supermodel! In other words, as long as you choose an elegant piece, you can do no wrong!
- Sequin Dress
Dress to impress ... on the dance floor! Everyone knows that glitter is music’s best friend. Is there a more thrilling path for revenge than donning a stunning sequin dress for the occasion and turning heads while doing so?
- Sheer Dress (Handle with Care)
This new trend shows no sign of slowing down. Will you be up for it? Absolutely guaranteed to make your ex green with envy, should you meet him at a party, this daring dress is a sure ally for sweet revenge! Just keep in mind that with this garment, less is more. Nude underwear in a light hue is elegant, and black only with a dress in a similar hue.
When in doubt, wear a little red number! Take your cue from Jane Birkin and go for boho meets femme fatale in a flared jumpsuit. This is revenge dressing at its best: it’s not about revealing ... it’s about concealing your hotness under an effortlessly chic veneer!
