It’s Fall, my favorite time of year, and the beginning of the holiday season. This also means ’tis the season to crush your party wardrobe. With Halloween costumes behind us and Friendsgivings, Thanksgivings, Christmases, Hanukkah, New Year’s and office parties galore ahead of us, you’ll need a mix of looks that can get you from October to January without the added stress. Here are some easy ideas!
At Dinnertain we feel strongly about painted nails. If you’re attending or hosting a gathering you should have painted nails. Painted nails just say, “I’m festive”, “I’m in it to win it,” or simply, “I tried.” Painted nails are an inexpensive and noncommittal way to complete your look and these days you can get a gel manicure a week in advance or do it yourself at home and it will last. Here is some inspiration…
An Always Appropriate Nude
A Trendy Shape Or Seasonally Appropriate Color
Something That Shimmers
A Classic Red
Your party wardrobe should have a pinch of something special. I don’t think you need to have 10 cocktails dresses for the season but more so, pieces that have an interesting detail or embellishment that adds a little pizzaz to your everyday wonderfulness. Here are some examples…
A Dress That Shows Just Enough
An Oversized Sleeve
Makeup That Pops
Your every day makeup is for your every day look. Your party look should have some amp up element. To take some advice from the French philosophy of beauty, you don’t have to do it all at once. Pick which feature you want to highlight and really go for it. Here’s some inspiration…
Winged Eyeliner (In Gold!)
A Bold Lip
Something That Shimmers
Accessories are my most favorite thing in life. You could basically buy all black and just rotate accessories for a new look every day, and believe me I’ve thought about it. Accessories, like painted nails are one of the easiest ways to jazz up your look. Take your work outfit from day to night with a cocktail ring and a scarf or make your dirty hair top-knot seem intentional with a statement earring. The possibilities are really endless. Here’s an amuse-bouche!
Bold & Bright Shoes
A Large Hair Accessory
A Sultry Texture
Put A Bow On It
Cocktails Rings of All Shapes & Sizes
