Keep reading as we shed some light on how you can perfect your look for the next party that comes your way without much worries.
Know the type and theme of the event
While some invitation specifies the theme, it’s not always the case. So, it’s important to pay close attention to what the occasion is about such as a birthday party, a wedding, a cocktail party, a bridal shower, etc in order to narrow down the level of dress up required. For example, a birthday party requires much less of a get up than a wedding does.
Note the timing and location
Being aware of the timing and location of such events also helps a great deal, especially in terms of selecting the colour and comfort of your dress. While an evening indoor party may call for rich, long silk dresses, an afternoon outdoor party may call for something lighter and soft coloured. Not to mention pool parties are often known to have a laid-back and casual dress code.
Lay out your outfit of choice
Once you’ve figured out the entire concept of the event, start making a mental idea of an outfit that would not just suite the event, but would also speak to your personality and style uniquely. Whether you’re rummaging through your wardrobe options or planning on purchasing a dress for the event, either way you’ll have a much clearer conscious and gut feeling when you’ve found “the” dress!
Match your accessories with care
Depending on your dress, it’s important to find a good balance between accessorizing yourself from head to toe to simply adding the right hints of jewels. Not all events call for sparkling diamonds and rubies. Your accessories, starting from jewelleries to purse to shoes, help you attain the level of richness or simplicity you need.
Pull off the right hair look
Believe it or not a wrong hair-do has the power to ruin your entire look. Just like your accessories depend on your outfit, your hair look depends on your accessories. It’s the final touch that requires a decision made with delicate care in order to complete your appearance.
