There is something about dressing up that is just appealing to people of all ages. Young children enjoy imitating their parents by donning their clothes, shoes, jewelry and parading around the house. Every now and then, grown ups will lavish themselves in gowns and fancy outfits for a party, a night out, a company function or just for the fun of it.
However there are occasions that call for dressing up elegantly. If you have been doing it for a while, then you should have a few tricks up your sleeve on how to work the occasion appropriately. If not, here are a few suggestions that might ease you into titivating accordingly and comfortably.
First, what is the occasion? Is it a theme party, a celebratory family function, a holiday get together or an office party? Whatever the occasion calls for, then that should be your guide on what to wear. Most theme parties have awards given to the best dressed, and sometimes, the worst. Pay attention to the details of the theme; is it color, costumes, time period, fancy, adult or kids. This information will influence the kind of outfit you wear.
If it’s a celebratory family function, pick something decent but attractive. For most family functions, family members take pleasure in admiring one another and discussing the looks adorned, especially women. Keep it lavishly simple and memorable.
Costume parties are fun, fun, fun. Pick out something that sits well with your body, is comfortable and you enjoy being in. You can make it exciting by tweaking the outfit or look a bit, but all in good taste.
When it comes to the kids’ garb, let them participate. Explain what the occasion calls for so that the apparel will go with the mood but, let them be a part of choosing it to ensure comfort and enjoyment for them as well.
Do not over accessorize because it takes away the elegance, can make you appear cartoony and in some cases, showy. Accessories – earrings, necklaces, rings – accentuate the final appearance but, they need to be worn in modishness.
