Tip #7: Dress Conservatively
As women, we want to be beautiful and to have amazing looking clothing. The problem with this is that it puts you at a greater risk when you do have it on. For this reason, do not wear anything that is overly revealing.
Some men, the bad type of course, see provocative clothing as an invitation to touch or be near to you. Do not bring attention to yourself with the clothing that you are wearing. Keep yourself safe by avoiding these problematic situations and you are likely to find yourself in a safer situation overall.
A tip here is to keep those beautiful clothes for times when you know that you will be going some place where they are properly appreciated. Wear more conservative items when you could be put into dangerous situations.
In addition to this, plan your wardrobe appropriately. For example, if you will be going for a walk in the park after work, plan to wear light clothing that allows you to easily move around in it. This allows you the freedom of being able to move quickly in situations that require it. Problem types of clothing include tight skirts, tight pants and high heeled shoes.
All of these things keep you from moving easily and that means that you are likely to be put in a situation where you could be left in the hands of the attacker.
Nearly all strategies for escaping dangerous situations require that you run. If you can not easily run in the clothing that you are wearing, you will be at the hands of your attacker.
