Don’t Wear Anything Too Revealing

The very first thing you have to realize is there is a huge difference between a cocktail party and a girls night out.

Don’t Wear Jeans

Even if your jeans are designer’s brands and have been steamed so tidy, jeans are still considered underdress when it comes to a cocktail party. And as the rule with any clothing options, it is better to be over dressed than underdressed. If you don’t feel like wearing a dress to the occasion, replace it with sleek trousers instead. The polished trousers are always a better option than any jeans.

Don’t Carry An Oversize Bag

Nothing looks sloppier than a slouchy tote bag slumped over your shoulder. Especially if you pair it with a nice dress. Remember, a cocktail party is a formal event. Whether a tote bag can best be described as casual. To aim for an elegant and refined look, replace the tote bag with a clutch or mini bag. You can learn about this look from the outfits worn by the Royal British Family. If you take a closer look, all the ladies from the Royal Family always bring a clutch or mini bag instead of a big one.

Don’t Wear Too Many Statement Accessories

Yes, statement accessories are needed to accompany your dress and make you look better. But too much statement accessories will only confuse the spectator. Not to mention, you will look all over the place. To avoid this, choose one accessory in particular that will accentuate your look and discard the rests. Even Coco Chanel recommended taking off one accessory before leaving your house. And we listen when she speaks.

Don’t Wear A Floor-Length Gown

A cocktail party is a formal event. But it is not a black-tie party that requires a floor-length dress or gown. To be wearing such attire would be too formal and too much. Instead, opt for mini or midi length dress. For a mini dress, try not to wear a super short dress and choose the one with appropriate length as explained above.

How To Make A Statement With Your Appearance

Published

on

There is nothing more important than being comfortable. But sometimes, that comfort must be replaced with something more prominent if the occasion required. By playing dress up, I don’t mean that you have to wait for a black-tie event to wear your favorite dress. There are ways to look standout without actually putting on a formal dress for a formal event. Even when you leave for work or having a girls’ night out, you can still look dress up. Below are the five outfits you can try that will make you instantly feel fabulous.

The Matching Two Piece

If you work in a place that rather has quite a strict formal dress code, or simply going to a lunch business, then this matching two pieces is perfect. It can be your regular suit, your regular skirt-blazer options, or simply two pieces of clothing that have a similar color thrown together.

Dress Up With Sequin

Embrace your inner goddess and dress yourself up with sequins. There are two options you can take. First, you can go all the way with sequins by wearing a full-length dress. Or second, you can dress it down by pairing the skirt or dress with a loose, casual sweater or even white tee. Pair the look with flat shoes or strappy high heels for a more formal occasion.

Red Lip

There is a way to cheat and continue to look polished even when you left your arsenals at home. That is the so-called red lipstick. A slick of a bold, red lippy is the perfect way to dress up without overdoing it. This especially will work out well if you are not sure what kind of event you are going to go and you are afraid of making an outfit mistake.

Thigh High Boots

These type of boots are part sexy and part cool. Pair them with a mini dress or a mini skirt for a sexier look. Yes, sometimes a slight show of skin is much sexier than a whole lot. The down thing about this outfit is you can only wear them when the weather is permissible to wear rather a short bottom. But even if the weather is slightly chilly, I’d say this ensemble is worth it.

One Color Plan

No, I’m not talking about a pair of suit. I’m simply talking about a top and a bottom that are fortunately having the same color. The great thing about same-color outfits are despite the type of the top and the bottom, you will always look intentionally put-together.

Pair it with boots for cooler weather and nude strappy sandals for summer.
