A bit short of words (and of photos) at the moment so I thought I’d leave you this evening with this guest post about going out dresses. Hope you’ll find it as useful as I did!
Everyone can look glamorous for the party season – even on a budget. With a few affordable going out dresses in your wardrobe, it’s possible to look like you’ve just walked down the red carpet without breaking the bank on designer clothes. You only need a few key items in your closet to look fabulous – whatever the occasion. Check out our tips on finding the perfect outfit for this season’s formal events.
The wedding season is still very much upon us and it’s important to hit the right notes with your outfit. Weddings are a time for celebration – so don’t be afraid to add a splash of colour. Take inspiration from the royal’s most fashionable female, Kate Middleton, by going for well-cut, classic dresses in bright hues.
For shoes, wedges are still a hot trend and they won’t sink into the grass if you’re outdoors. Make sure you take a pair of pretty ballet pumps for later in the evening if you plan to hit the dance floor all night long.
To make sure you look like the belle of the ball, choose a statement dress that makes you stand out from the crowd. For evening events, floor-length gowns make a fantastic statement, although a cocktail-length dress is also acceptable. Knee-length ‘midi’ dresses are appropriate if the black-tie event is taking place outdoors or in the afternoon. This is a time to really get glam so don’t be afraid to accessorise with a pair of killer heels and oversized jewellery.
Hit the town in style and slip into a sexy cocktail dress. You still can’t go wrong with the classic LBD. Slimming and chic, black is the one colour that suits everyone. Make sure to play up your best assets – whether you’ve got long legs or a great cleavage. Don’t overdo it though, you should only choose one asset to play if you want to keep the look elegant. A dress that is short, tight, sleeveless and plunging is almost impossible to pull off.
Work to Evening
Finding an outfit that translates from business casual to a night out is challenging. Try a simple yet versatile dark-coloured Maxi dress that can be easily dressed-up for a cocktail party or other evening event by adding a pair of heels and some glittery accessories.
