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.


Go formal

Let’s get kicked off in style, shall we? A bit formal for the family Thanksgiving bash sure, but this tux from 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.

Long skirt

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

bright colors

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
