Subconsciously, we tend to assign positive attributes to attractive people versus people who are not, according to multiple studies. There is even some Psychological evidence that suggests that people who dress a certain way are perceived more positively. For example, Psych Central notes how this was shown in one study when doctors were seen as more trustworthy when wearing a white lab coat versus doctors who did not.
Regardless of the ethics of consciously holding onto these ingrained biases, it’s safe to say that we all want to look our best so that others perceive us in a positive light. So, check out these three things that will never go out of style:
1. A beautiful smile with a normal bite.
Those dealing with an overbite may find their appearance displeasing and may even be teased for having “buck teeth.” Not only can an overbite or underbite make you feel bad about your appearance, but teeth that are not in the right position can be more difficult to maintain good oral hygiene as well leading to further dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Teeth not in the proper position can lead to other issues outside of dental issues, such as jaw pain, facial structure development issues, and a possible speech impediment such as a lisp. Getting braces for overbites can fix an overbite with orthodontic treatment in a few ways to prevent these issues.
Depending on the overbite’s severity, orthodontic treatment with braces can fix your overbite through a personalized treatment plan. For example, a slight overbite can be fixed with just traditional braces and rubber bands, whereas a severe overbite may require tooth extraction along with braces and elastics. While any dental overbite is preferable to fix in youth, it’s possible to align your top teeth and lower teeth even as adults with braces. Actually, Harvard Health Publishing notes that as many as one in five people in the United States receiving orthodontic treatment with braces are an adult patient.
Plus, in recent years, Invisalign has made strides in overbite correction so that you can fix your overbite issues with clear aligners instead of traditional metal braces. Unlike traditional metal braces, getting Invisalign from a trained orthodontist allows a better aesthetic look, and Invisalign is far easier for maintaining good dental hygiene and preventing discomfort than traditional braces. If you think you or your child could use overbite correction, get a consultation so that you can get a treatment plan started!
2. Accessories that go with almost anything.
Whether it’s stylish leather belts, chic blazers, or those classic little black dresses, there are just some essential things to every wardrobe. At White House Black Market, you will find belts for women that will go with nearly any outfit. You can wear these women’s belts with nearly all bottoms, from skirts and dresses of varying hemlines to long pants or as an accent to a coat or sweater. From the leopard print skinny stretch belt to the polka dot-like style of the faux pearl stretch belt, you’re sure to find a belt that will go perfectly with all the outfits in your wardrobe.
White House Black Market is also a great place to look for other accessories for fashion trends from late-2020 such as jackets, stylish face coverings (matching your mask to your outfit is so “in” this year), cardigans, sweaters, jewelry (such as hoop earrings), blouses, etc. If you’re looking for anything from jackets to bikinis, you’ll find something you like here.
3. Finding that perfect pair of jeans.
There’s not really any denying that jeans are a fashion trend that has become a fashion staple for every closet across the United States. While fabrics like plaid or florals print come and go, jeans seem to be the fashion trend that stands the test of time.
An article published in Medium late last year discusses how in the past (about the 1920s and ’30s), jeans were mostly worn for cowboys and miners’ functionality. In the 50’s they became a fashion trend for men when James Dean and Marlon Brando wore them in their movies, creating the official “bad boy” look. By the late ’70s and ’80s, after Gloria Steinman wore jeans to demonstrate gender equality, jeans officially became part of nearly every ensemble across the country.
Forget trousers; a good pair of jeans can create looks for any waist and goes with basically all separates. Plus, the right cut of jeans could be worn with sneakers or sandals. No wonder they’re so popular!
