Have you ever been invited to a wedding, a cocktail party, or some type of dressy event where you had no idea what to wear? If you haven’t, you will probably have to attend an affair that requires an outfit more formal than work outfits or even a simple black dress. Dressy events are exciting, but they can be overwhelming and can get pretty expensive if you don’t have a plan on exactly what you will wear. I will tell you three ways that you can slay your dressy event below.
Dressy pants suits for evening wear
One of the easiest and frequently neglected attire is a classy, dressy pantsuit. Pantsuits may seem more appropriate for the office, but you can easily dress it up for an elaborate event. The solution is to choose the right style for your pantsuits such as a lace pantsuit or wearing a neutral colored pantsuit and pairing it with an elegant color like the red blazer and black pant outfit down below.
Evening Wear Separates
Evening wear separates such as dresses, skirts, shoes, and accessories are some more options you have for your dressy event. The obvious choice for many people is a dress, but if a dress doesn’t work for you or if you feel like trying something new, you can opt for a long evening skirt and an elegant blouse.
Dressy tops for evening wear
You can dress a simple skirt or pants in a formal blouse such as lace, sequin, mesh as below. No one has to know that your skirt or pants were purchased from forever21. If you are buying a more simple top, you can tie a cute ribbon around your waist to upgrade your outfit from just stylish to formal.
Dressy evening jackets
The best way to elevate any look is to add an outer layer. Your outfit will instantly look chic and more polished. A blazer that matches your undershirt is perfect for a dressy event.
