A lot of us can relate to this - when you are friend with skinny jeans and sweatshirts every day, swapping it for an over-the-top party outfit can leave you feeling like you’re wearing a costume. But you can stay true to your personal style – just look for elevated versions of things you’ll feel comfortable in. Here are some outfit tips to help you look for an evening outfit that will wow your party peers without appearing too "done".
First case in point: Grab a sparkly sweater and compliment it with an embellished midi skirt and some statement jewelry to create a perfect silvery glow.
Opt for a more romantic option with a strappy slip dress under some silky robes for an effortless flowy silhouette. What originally serves as the inner lining to a gown is now a full-blown dress category that has been a favorite go-to for cocktail events and nights out. Finish with some fine accessories to stop it all from teetering into pajama territory.
Take advantage of your favorite blue-wash denim and glam it up with a high-impact one shoulder top plus a pair of knee-high leather boots for an ultra-wearable take on ’80s glamour. Bold (asymmetrical recommended) earrings for an extra sleek finish.
A last-minute solution? Break out your trusty leather jacket and throw it over any mini skirts or even dress pants - You’ll be dancing from dusk to dawn in ease and chicness. It’s a timeless look, but the easiest way to make it feel utterly of the moment is to top off with some trendy funky accessories.
