WHAT TO WEAR: Birthday Party

What to Wear

You never want to outshine the birthday girl at her party. But, you do want to pull off the second most awe-struck outfit in the room. This could be a difficult task. I suggest finding out the dress code beforehand so there are no slip-ups. You don’t want to arrive wearing something similar to the woman of the night or something less formal than everyone else in attendance. Once you find out these details, plan accordingly.

This Misericordia Fashionista pulled off the perfect attire for a night out to celebrate that special BFF. She looked stylish and chose an outfit that could easily work for dinner and then a night out. She rocked a pair of statement pants–classic black with a rocker white stripe down the side. Target offers a pair extremely similar to this Fashionista’s. She decided to wear black throughout, a great choice for a nighttime gathering. Looking sleek and chic she tucked a fitted black top into the pants and pulled on a blazer for warmth. Urban Outfitters has tons of blazers suitable for a college student’s wallet.

This Fashionista opted for a long, silver chain necklace to tie the top half of her outfit together. There is a great option at H&M for under $10–score! Instead of waking up the next morning with throbbing feet from pumps or wedges go for a pair of heeled booties like this Fashionista.

One Simple Change: To alter this outfit and make it internship appropriate, swap the statement pants for a colored skater skirt like this one from Nordstrom. Add a pair of tights and you’re ready for a day at the office.
