Are you wondering about what outfits you can wear with a ponytail?
There are many reasons you may want to wear your hair up in a ponytail. At least for me, my hair goes together in a pony on days between wash. That means my hair is still relatively clean but it´s no longer as voluminous as it when freshly washed. And then as I near the schedule to wash my hair, I wair my hair up in a bun.
Wearing your hair in a ponytail can be tricky specially if you´re going to work. If you position the tail too high you would look unprofessional, yet if too low you can easily look dated.
And then there´s the whole science of what outfits go well with the ponytail hairstyle. I´ve written about how to wear ponytail with a suit or business attire, but this blog post is all about what outfits to wear with a ponytail for different accasions.
Btw, these outfits are available over at Closet London. I love all their elegant pieces.
1. Ponytail with Printed Top + Tan Pleated Skirt
If you´ll wear a blouse with exaggerated sleeves paired with a pleated knee-length skirt, you are going to add width to your silhouette. In order to avoid looking like a wide rectangle, tying your hair together in a ponytail will create contrast between the slim vertical length of your face to your neck and the volume of your sleeves and skirt.
2. Ponytail with A Navy Blazer for Work Outfit
For work, try a navy blazer dress with a ponytail hairstyle. In order to look glamorous yet professional in this look, make sure that the ponytail is tied just a little above your ears and add some soft curls or curves to your tail.
3. A High Neck Blouse or Dress
Whether it´s a blouse, dress or sweater, a high neck calls for a ponytail or any hairstyle that brings your hair neatly up. This will put the high neck style at the center of attention while keeping you look pu together. Really, there´s nothing more untidy than a high neck look worn with a long hair that´s all over the place.
4. With a Scarf or Scarf-Like Sleeves
You may have added a long scarf to your look or you may have chosen a piece with scarf-like sleeves or with the trendy pussybow, whichever you decide to wear for the day make sure to always wear your hair in a stylish bun. There´s no way you can rock the scarf look elegantly with a long hair worn down. Well, unless you have really short hair.
5. With a wrap-tie dress
Another style of dress that call for a neat hairstyle such as a ponytail is the wrap-tie-style. As you can see, although the dress has a solid color, there´s a lot going on in it. You want the style and silhouette of the dress to be in full view, and you can achieve that by not letting your hair disturb the view.
6. With a kimono style playsuit
The kimono style playsuit has a roomy silhouette and oftentimes comes with wide shoulders and sleeves. In order to not look bigger in this look, keep your hair sleek in a ponytail.
7. With a sleeveless midi dress
There are many hairstyles that you can wear with a sleeveless midi dress. However, the ponytail will give you the longest possible illusion of vertical line. In short, it will make you look thinner and taller.
8. with Puff Sleeves
You may want to bring the attention to your stylish puffy sleeves. If this is your goal, then a ponytail will help you achieve that. Keep things flirty by adding waves to your ponytail.
9. With a fit-and-flare dress
More often than not, a fit and flare mini dress gives your figure the most perfect aesthetic. If you have narrow hips, it gives you more hips. If you have a flatter derriere, it gives you more bump. If you´re not an hour glass, it makes you look as if you are. Why ruin that aesthetic with a hair worn down that competes for attention? Definitely wear your hair in a ponytail for this look.
So these are some of the outfits that are safe to wear with a ponytail hairstyle. Make sure to bookmark this list to serve as reference the next time you´re not sure what outfit looks great with a ponytail.
