There comes a time in our lives where we have an opportunity to head to a glamourous event. It might be an evening wedding reception, a glitzy awards ceremony or simply a night on the town with our friends or partners. However, we can all fall into a little style rut when it comes to evening outfit options partly because it may not be our normal to dress up every night of the week. Which is why I thought I would share with you some of the best evening outfit inspiration that will hopefully help you out in your time of need.
The flattering pants option
Not all of us are dress wearers, which is why it’s often a classy choice to stick with a smart, flattering, and tailored pant option. There are so many ways you can wear them. Team them with high heels, and you instantly have a great outfit on your hands. For your top, you could consider keeping it tailored with a shirt, or simply add some glam and glitz to the event and choose something a little more risque or daring.
The cocktail dress
If you love your dresses then choosing between an abundance of cocktail dresses will be the best option for you. There are many options to choose from. You could stick with the classic little black dress that works in many different scenarios and situations, dress it up, or keep it casual to match your style. You could consider something brighter, or fitting, or even choose something below the knee or ankle length for a more dramatic look.
Skirts are great options
These days a skirt isn’t just a skirt. You have so many different styles to choose from, there is, of course, the mini. But then don’t forget the maxi skirt, the pencil skirt, and even the prom style skirt that we all have available that would work perfectly for an evening event. A prom skirt is normally full and bright in color or patterns, so teaming it with a plain blouse will make the outfit very chic. A mini skirt may be more appropriate for a relaxed affair, but they can still look uber stylish when worn with the right top and accessories. A floor length maxi skirt can give you the dramatic effect of an ankle length gown, with a more casual feel to it.
It’s all about the accessories
We all know that the right accessories can really make an outfit stand out from the crowd. This is when you consider things like footwear, hats or fascinators if the event requires it, and even your jewelry and bag choices.
Hair and makeup to finish off your look
Finally, take some time to think about how you present yourself. Enjoy the process of applying your makeup and take time with the detail. Arrange to have your hair put up in a gorgeous style, or choose to try something different like curls or straightening your locks. They can all make a big difference to how you present yourself.
I hope this helps you when it comes to your next evening event.
