For this week’s fashion post I thought it would be fun to show you 5 different party looks. Whether you’re going to a house party, a super glam ordeal or going out for drinks with your colleagues from the office: every party requires a different type of look. So I put together 5 different outfits that will fit 5 different type of parties.
Party look 1: Glam
Silver sequin tunic (Vila)
Nude heels (V. Haren)
Nothing says party like a good sequin dress. This would be great for an occasion where you need to go all out. Technically this isn’t even a dress: it’s a tunic. And so it’s short. But styled with nude heels and maybe a nice clutch this dress is all you need to wear. It’s so shiny and sparkly (but not too much) that you can forgo any other accessories and the cut of this dress is quite flattering as it is very figure hugging.
Party look 2: Flirty
Scalloped crop top (Urban Outfitters)
Red heels (Asos)
Faux leather skirt with white trim (River Island)Silver shamrock necklace (some random store near Dublin Castle)
This outfit would be perfect for date night or a night out with the girls. The circle skirt and scalloped floral print crop top makes this outfit super girly while the black and white monochrome color scheme keeps the outfit classy and simple. To add a bit of a statement and a fun element I decided to go with bright red pumps. The shamrock necklace plays up the nature aspect of the printed top and adds a finishing touch to your otherwise exposed decollatage.
Party look 3: Drinks
Pink ethnic print blazer (Hema)
White t-shirt (H&M)
Black fitted sweatpants (Vila)
Statement necklace (Primark)
Black & White strappy heeled sandals (Sacha)
What about going for drinks with colleagues? I think anyone with a day job experiences that situation at least a few times a year. So wearing a professional yet fun outfit is a must. This blazer adds a fun pop of color in an otherwise basic outfit. The black ‘dressy’ sweatpants make for a great mix of professional and comfort and then the heels are there to just bring it all together.
Party look 4: House party
Floral kimono (H&M)
Black t-shirt (H&M)
Light denim Leigh jeans with knee rips (Topshop)
Gold leaf necklace (Primark)
Black biker boots with silver hardware (Sacha)
The most casual outfit I’m showing you is perfect for the most casual of parties: a house party. Be it a birthday party at a friend’s house or just a casual gathering, wearing a comfy pair of jeans paired with a comfy top will be perfect for such an occasion. The kimono adds some color and interest while the biker ankle boots add a well-needed touch of toughness. The rips across the knees keep the outfit from being too polished and makes the overall look extra relaxed.
Party look 5: Classic
Lace dress (M&S)
Pearl necklace (Six)
Black & white mary jane t-bar strap pumps (Manfield)
MAC Russian Red Matte lipstick
The final outfit I want to share is a dress that I absolutely love. I don’t get to wear it too often, but I wore it to my friends’ wedding and when I was showing off my inner 1940s Hollywood pin up girl. This is a classic cocktail dress that is a bit longer in length but the v-neck front and back shows enough skin to stay away from safe and boring. Pair it with some classic accessories such as a string of pearls and some classic low heeled shoes to stick with the feel of the dress. And yes, lipstick can so be used as an accessory! So whip out your favorite red, matte lipstick and enjoy your vampy look.
What is your perfect party outfit?
