Q:

Which side is a corsage worn on?

A:

Quick Answer

Women's corsages are traditionally worn on the left shoulder. If a dress' strap is too narrow, or if the dress is strapless, the flower is pinned at the top left of the bodice, on the left side of the waist, on the left wrist or on an evening bag.

Full Answer

A corsage is attached from left to right at a downward angle. The pin goes through the fabric on both sides of the stem, but it passes over the stem of the corsage. The stem is not pierced by the pin. If the corsage is heavy, an additional pin is used. The second pin starts to the right of the corsage, making an "x" shape with the other pin.

    Boot leg warmers are usually worn underneath boots with the tops of the leg warmers showing above the boots.

  • Q:

    When should you wear a straw or a felt cowboy hat?

    A:

    Straw cowboy hats are typically worn in the hot summer months as they are lighter and allow a breeze, while felt hats are traditionally worn in cooler winter or fall months. The felt hat is more durable, but it does not allow air to flow through it, which makes it retain heat from the sun longer than straw cowboy hats.
