As party-goers know, what to wear to a party is determined by several factors.
Who’s hosting the party, if there’s a theme for the event, what kind of activities are planned (if any), the time of day and of course, lookin’ damn good.
That’s a lot to consider, and we haven’t even scratched the surface yet. So, to help narrow the focus and get you on your way, here are some ideas to get to started on finding the very best of what to wear to almost any party.
Let’s get kicked off in style, shall we? A bit formal for the family Thanksgiving bash sure, but this tux from Uniformalwearhouse.com is going to look great at the New Year’s Eve gala. Not a vest guy? There are choices galore at Uniformalwearhouse, including sizes for big and small guys.
Go to lengths
Celebrate in the ultimate in pretty party attire with an ultra feminine, flattering long skirt from Peruvian Connection. Less formal than a gown or cocktail dress, but much dressier than a short skirt or jeans, you can pair a flowing skirt with a sparkly tank top, a soft, silky sweater or blouse and a pair of heels for the perfect party look.
Bright, dramatic colors
Red hot looks in all kinds of shades
Party time is a great time to don the bright, intense colors you just can’t wear to work or the mall. Stand out in a hot pink dress like this one from Talbots. Or opt for a bright turquoise, yellow, coral, red or deep emerald green dress, skirt or top. If that much color is too much for you to dare to wear, select a bright accent scarf or belt to add that perfect bling and pop to your party outfit.
Perfect tie for the perfect shirt
Think of it as outfit gift wrap
One of the hardest parts of picking out the perfect tie to go with your dress shirt is, well, picking out the perfect tie. DestinationXL has taken the stress out of buying a tie with their cool website that lets you virtually try shirt and tie combinations on your screen before you order. Now you can be sure that the tie you buy for your party outfit will be exactly what you imagine.
Luxe faux fur
Make an entrance
Ooh, baby. Envision this beautiful (faux) Russian Lynx Hooded Coat from Fabulous Furs wrapped around the Equinox dress as you stroll into the party. Every clock in the place will come to a screeching halt. As you consider what to wear to a party, you can’t underestimate the power of an entrance, and this will knock their (dress) socks right off.
Drop-dead gorgeous shoes
Make the women jealous and the guys drool
You could have the most amazing dress, the perfect make-up and the hottest hair style, but if your shoes are ho-hum, your party look is no where. Sure shoes can be pricy, but this is a PARTY! So splurge for those super-hot high heels from Neiman Marcus and watch your party-cred jump.
