How To Dress for a Cocktail Party

Hi Everyone,

Have you ever gotten an event invite that requires some kind of dress code that leaves you feeling a little frantic?

For women, short dresses that are party-ready are always helpful.  

When in doubt, wear a little black dress and dress it up with fun jewelry
or, if you’d rather wear color, opt for something bright and feminine.

Cocktail dresses are the best way to achieve supreme after-hours glamour.

In the wise words of Karl Lagerfeld, "One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress."
That being said, don't feel limited to only black options. Play with color—another element that is best informed by the time of year. For spring, a romantic pink or soft pastel. For summer go bold in something bright.  For fall, rich earth tones and warm neutrals. 
And winter, deep jewel tones in luxe textures like satin or velvet.

When it comes to handbags, less is more.
Pick a small purse that will fit the bare essentials and opt for a handheld version like a clutch or diminutive top-handle. Cocktail events are a no-carryall zone.

 Keep your SWAG mode ON
A little light concealer or powder and a swipe of mascara are essential—and we can't stress enough the transformational powers of a good lipstick. If your hair is giving you anxiety, a low chignon is an easy, never-fail option that works for any occasion.

Till next time....Keep it STYLISH By Nature !!
