No matter the time of year, there’s always a reason to party. Whether it’s a formal Christmas party or a Halloween costume party, everyone takes the time to dress up and look their best.
Have a special occasion coming up and want to rock the ultimate party look? You’ve come to the right place. Just follow our guide below and you’ll be sure to stand out. Let’s dive in!
Plan Your Outfit
The first thing you’ll want to do is find out the dress code. Depending on the occasion, this could range from a costume party to a formal party, and anywhere in between.
Casual parties are easy – a pair of jeans and a nice shirt are easy to put together while looking well-thought out. More formal occasions call for a bit more effort, though. A fancy dress, a skirt with a blouse, or a pair of slacks with a blouse are all acceptable for this type of affair.
Once you know what the dress code is, you can start narrowing down your options. Consider your body type and which styles flatter those best.
Make sure to choose an outfit highlighting your best features. If you want to flaunt your new butt lift or show off some cleavage, make sure you do so in a flattering way.
After you’ve decided on the perfect outfit for the occasion, you need to pick a pair of shoes to match. Comfort is key.
If you plan on standing most of the night, a pair of high heels or shoes which pinch your toes may not be the best option. A pair of flats or sneakers may work best, but it will depend on the dress code and which outfit you chose. Make sure to match your footwear with your outfit accordingly.
Style Your Hair
Now that you have an outfit picked out, it’s time to focus on your hair. Make sure to wash and dry your hair a few hours before the party. How you decide to style your hair will depend on the length of it.
If you have long hair, the options are endless. From curling it to braiding it, there’s a look perfect for every occasion.
For those with short- or medium-length hair, your options are a bit more limited. You can let it dry naturally, pin it half-back, or straighten it. If you aren’t great at styling your own hair, you may consider making a hair appointment and leaving it up to your hair stylist for best results.
Focus on Makeup and Accessories
Once your dressed and have your hair done, it’s time to apply your makeup and accessories. This is may highlight your outfit the most!
How much makeup you decide to put on will depend on how much makeup you normally wear. It will also depend on how fancy or casual the party is. For formal or special occasions, we recommend going all out.
If you prefer a simple look, some lipgloss and blush are all you need. For a formal event, make sure to include some eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara. Use a bold lipstick color to stand out even more.
Lastly, include any jewelry which highlights and enhances your outfit. A simple pair of earrings or layered necklace can pull the whole outfit together.
The most important thing not to forget, though, is a positive attitude. If you feel confident and happy in how you look, others will certainly notice.
