It’s that time of year and everyone’s got a party or two to go to. The BIG question is: What do I wear?? I have a couple of suggestions to make this as painless and hopefully fun as possible. First, you need to determine how dressy the event is going to be. You don’t want to show up dressed to the nines if everyone else is in jeans and t-shirts! To make it simple, let’s assume it’s either cocktail attire, or party casual. Unless there is a specified dress code, you can probably get away with either option. If it’s “black tie”, you”ll need to pull out the formal! Here are two party ensembles that should work for most any festive occassion:
1) LBD (The Little Black Dress). Every woman should have at least one and you can never have too many! Here is an example of how to glam up your lbd without going overboard.
Start with a good lbd. By good, I mean well made, figure flattering, and timeless.
Add a sophisticated pump with a pop of color or sparkle.
And a statment necklace if the neckline calls for it.
If not, a cocktail ring will have the same effect and add just the right amount of sparkle.
Add a tasteful wrap, shawl, or jacket in case you get chilly. This also serves to make the outfit a little more conservative for your entrance.
Lastly, add a festive clutch to add some pizaz. After all, you NEED some arm candy!
2) A Dressy Suit-
Add Sparkle by Choosing Light-Catching Chandelier Earrings.
Don’t forget the Clutch! Choose a tasteful vintage or new clutch to match your outfit like the one in the ensemble above. Top it off with a pretty, dressy coat and you are ready for most any festive occassion!
