You've all heard the old saying about less being more, but you've probably never really thought about it in much detail. Well, now's the time to do so, because the saying rings true for many different aspects of life. It applies to your career, your dating life, and of course your fashion sense. Here are a few instances when a lady should remember less is more:
You typically don't want your resume to be longer than a page. Having one that spans five pages isn't going to make you look more impressive. It's just going to show that you didn't bother to condense everything and don't mind wasting your potential employer's time. Even if you're a great candidate for a job, you won't get very far if you have a lengthy resume. Less is more, ladies.
You don't need to jump on top of your crush's lap and tell him how sexy you find him. It's better to give him occasional touches on the arm and subtle compliments that he'll think about for the rest of the day. Don't go overboard, and you'll be dating him in no time.
You can do a lot with a little makeup. If you're going to prom, feel free to go crazy with the products. However, if you're just heading to a normal day of school or work, try to go easy on the eyeshadow and lipstick. Not only will it make you look prettier, but it'll save you time in the morning.
When you're on a date, you don't want to spend the entire evening talking about yourself. In order to speak less, you should ask him about his life, his hobbies, and his interests. That way, it'll be easier for you two to divide the time spent speaking. If you're the only one talking, then it will look like you don't care about what he has to say. Besides, the less you speak, the more intrigued he'll be by your mysteriousness.
This doesn't mean that you should wear revealing clothing whenever you leave the house. It just means that you don't want to wear a super sparkly top with neon colored pants. You should pick one item of clothing that will draw focus, and let the rest look casual. You don't want your outfit to be too loud.
One statement necklace or a gorgeous ring will get far more attention than if you cover your arms with bracelets. You can always have too much of a good thing, so don't wear all of your jewelry at once. You don't want to be jingling all day, anyway.
No, you don't want to get six hours of sleep instead of eight hours. However, it's better to sleep eight hours than nine, ten, or twenty. You don't want to spend your entire life beneath the blankets, no matter how warm and cozy it is. If you're getting more than eight hours of sleep a night, then you might want to think about waking up a bit earlier to be more productive.
The next time you leave the house, remember that less is more. It sounds cliche, but it can help you advance in your career and love life. What other occasions should a lady remember that less is more?
