Attending a special event can be exciting, especially if it’s an occasion that you’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. Whether it’s a wedding or a graduation party, and reunion or an anniversary, dressing for the big day is going to be important if you want to make the right impression. As you prepare for your next special event, remember some of these tips for looking clean and crisp:
For guys, looking clean and crisp can be easy, as long as you remember to keep it simple. A nice pair of black dress pants, a button down shirt, and a tie can make all the difference as long as you choose a solid shirt with a complimentary tie. Stay away from busy textures and patterns and look for pieces that offer the best fit and tailoring. Then, bring your look all together with a modern leather belt and a pair of well shined leather shoes. Coupled with a fresh shave and a new haircut, you can be event ready.
Ladies, on the other hand, have a much more difficult task. Dressing for the occasion can be difficult, as you want to be sure that you’re choosing dresses or skirt sets that are formal enough for the occasion. For more formal events, go with a sleek cocktail dress in cotton, eyelet, or similar fabric that offers a flowing, elegant fit or showcases structure and texture. For less formal events, a nice colorful, full skirt paired with a dressier top can make you look both laid-back and stylish. Pair either with a great pair of wedges, kitten heels, or pumps. Bold jewelry (not too bold!) and a sleek updo will bring your look together.
