Regardless of what people say, it’s party season all year round. Whenever we get invited to a party, especially the formal ones, let’s face it, we all fear it as much as we look forward to it. Every invitation received certainly begs the question, “What do I wear?”
Here’s a guide to help you figure out the appropriate style to wear to a specific ceremony:
There are times we get invited to evening affairs and they usually require formal attire. Traditionally speaking, a formal event calls for floor-length outfits. A simple silhouette is always recommended, with darker colors or minimal prints to match. Add a bold necklace, bracelet, or earring to add flair.
By The Shore
For a beach party with the beautiful sunset as the backdrop, it’s best to keep things light. Opt for a printed dress featuring bright colors and fun prints. Best to keep the shoe neutral (and flat since you’ll be walking on sand the whole time) and keep the focus on the dress. If you want, you can add an interesting earring or an armful of wooden bangles as a conversation starter.
A party in the great outdoors is romantic, without a doubt. As a guest, it’s best to be prepared for a sunny day. Say yes to a lightweight cotton outfit and no to anything silk. A wedge shoe would go well with the outfit. Toss in a clutch bag and a pair of sunglasses to complete the look.
Sailing and Celebrating
Ready to cruise? If you’re attending a celebration that’s formal in daytime onboard a cruise ship, a mid-length or short dress is an appropriate choice. Maybe something flirty and floral, with a touch of sparkle. Finish off your look with a classic bag to give it that extra touch.
