Tips for women to dress casually

Gilda Radner, the famous American comedian once said, “I base most of my fashion sense on what doesn’t itch.” This is what casual dressing is all about. It is about being comfortable at its best. Keeping in mind the comfort level, one must not forget about dressing right. After all, you are what you wear. The way you dress speaks a lot about your personality. A research has revealed that 90% of the first impression judgements are based on what you wear. Wearing the right dress is what ultimately helps you to wear the right attitude.

The following tips will help you to dress the right way for casual meetings and outings.
