1. Choose a cocktail dress
If you’re going to a fancy party, then this is the dress for you. You’ll look and feel like a million bucks in this sassy little number.
The black cocktail dress is perfect for any occasion where you want to make an impression: from holiday parties to weddings and everything in between, there’s no reason why it can’t go with your whole wardrobe!
So what kind of black dress should I get? The classic little black dress (LBD) has been around forever; if it ain’t broke… But if that doesn’t float your boat then check out our other suggestions below!
2. Wear a jumpsuit
- Wear a jumpsuit.
Jumpsuits are a great alternative to dresses, and they’re more comfortable for the party too. Look for a jumpsuit with a tailored fit and wide belt, so you’ll feel pulled together from top to bottom. If you’re feeling brave, consider wearing a top and bottom in different colors—it’s an eye-catching look that says “I’m fun!” but not “I’m trying too hard.” To add interest to your outfit without overwhelming it, throw on your favorite blazer or jacket over the top of the jumpsuit. Wearing accessories like hats and heels will help ground this look if it feels too out there!
3. Go for a sweater and pants combo
You can wear a sweater with a skirt. It’s a fact! Sweaters are the new dresses at parties, so you’ll want to choose one that’s bright and fun! This is your chance to go out on a limb with something bold, like an orange or red cardigan. Choose a skirt that matches it—this will show off your personality and make you feel confident on this special day.
Be sure not to wear anything too long, though; while skirts have gotten longer over time (thanks, fashion!), they’re better suited for twirling than dancing in anyways. A few inches above the knee is sufficient enough coverage without being too much for anybody else at the party (but just enough for yourself!). You also want to avoid wearing anything too short—nothing should be above where your knees bend when you sit down; if it does then maybe think about wearing some tall boots instead of heels!
Lastly: don’t forget about comfort! If all else fails then just remember that sweaters were invented by almighty God himself specifically so He could keep His children warm when temperatures plummet during winter months across North America–and now thanks again for joining us today as we explore some ways how YOU could potentially do exactly this same thing too–so go ahead give us call now before these doors close forever!”
4. Opt for a tuxedo or suit jacket
If you’d like to look more business-like and formal, opt for a tuxedo or suit jacket. You’ll want to choose a color that suits your skin tone, or even better—choose one that matches your dress pants or skirt. Many women wear a matching set of dress pants and shirt when they are going out with friends, so matching your blazer with the rest of your outfit will help eliminate any awkwardness in this area.
As far as material goes, there are many options available to choose from at most department stores: velvet fabrics are popular choices because they give off an elegant vibe; leather is another great choice if you’re feeling particularly bold; but if neither of these sound like something that would fit into the holiday spirit then go ahead and try out some silk button up shirts! They come in all sorts of different colors so finding one that’s perfect shouldn’t be too difficult at all!
5. A pantsuit is always a good idea
A pantsuit is always a good idea. If you’re a woman and you want to wear something festive but still work-appropriate, then a pantsuit is the way to go. If you don’t feel comfortable wearing your usual suit-and-tie uniform, try pairing it with a blouse or blazer instead of button-down shirts, which can be more casual than they seem at first glance.
If you’re a man and want to go for something similar, then consider going with either one of these options: 1) A suit with tie 2) A traditional two-piece suit without any tie or other accessories (tuxedo anyone?) You might also want to consider adding some color into the mix if going all black isn’t for you—it will stand out in the crowd and add some flair!
6. Try a festive skirt and top combo
- Choose a skirt style that’s best for you. Are you the type to wear pencil skirts? Pleated skirts? Bermuda shorts? There are lots of different types of skirts, and each one is better suited to certain occasions. If you’re going out with friends on New Year’s Eve, picking a casual mini skirt would be appropriate; but if it’s Christmas morning at your grandparents’ house, try something more formal and festive.
- Choose a top that complements the skirt. You want the top half of your outfit to be just as stylish as the bottom half—and sometimes even more so! We recommend pairing a printed blouse with an animal print skirt (I mean have you seen how cute those prints look?), or a lacy white cami underneath an A-line lace dress for extra flair and femininity (these pieces go together like peanut butter & jelly). Whatever combo makes sense for your personal style will work perfectly here; just make sure they’re both festive enough that they make people want to party all night long!
7. Dress in sequins if you want to sparkle and shine (literally!)
If you’re hosting a party at home, consider wearing sequins. This will allow you to shine like the star of the show.
If you’re attending a formal event, opt for a dress in silver or gold sequins—it’s sure to make an impression on your guests!
If you have any doubts about which color or style of dress would be best suited for your party, know that there are many different choices available online and in stores.
8. Layer it up with an on-trend cardigan or blazer over your LBD. Bonus points if it’s velvet!
The key to pulling off this look is the layering. Layer your LBD with an on-trend cardigan or blazer over it, especially if you’re going for velvet. The color and texture can add a different dimension to your LBD that will make it stand out even more than it already does.
If you are going to wear a blazer, make sure that it fits well and isn’t too bulky. You don’t want people looking at your jacket instead of your face!
