WHAT TO WEAR: Birthday Party

What to Wear

When you’re little, birthday parties consist of moon bounces, face painting and presents. As you get older people still continue having birthday parties but the locations and venues change; you go out to dinner with your 30 “closest friends” and you take as many pictures as possible, in order to try and find one that may be Instagram or profile picture worthy. That being the case, you always have to make sure you look your best as you go to a birthday party.

This Fashionista was seen on her way to a birthday dinner looking fashion-forward and chic. She was spotted wearing a loose black Free People tank top, a pair of army green skinny jeans and a pair of nude Tory Burch sandals. She then accessorized her outfit perfectly with a Michael Kors watch, a plethora of bracelets, a long necklace and a Tory Burch cross body satchel.

This Fashionista not only looked great but she managed to perfectly capture the “birthday dinner dress code”. Always wanting to look her best, while not wanting to outshine the birthday girl, this Fashionista kept her outfit casual while incorporating trends, such as the army green skinny jeans. She also did a wonderful job at maintaining a simple outfit, even with her accessories. Her outfit consisted of neutral colors, for the most part, which is where the colored skinny jeans really helped; they added a pop of color to the outfit and helped her stick out from the rest of the guests at the birthday dinner. Her jewelry and purse also stood out against the black tank top, helping making her outfit blend and ultimately tying it all together.

Overall, while we have grown up, birthday parties are still a big ordeal in our lives and this Fashionista did an amazing job at looking fashion-forward as she headed to her friend’s birthday dinner.

One Simple Change: While this outfit is perfect for a birthday dinner, it may be too warm for a birthday lunch in the Tucson heat. By simply switching out the army green cargo pants for a pair of colored, decorative, shorts you are able to maintain your Fashionista status while avoiding the heat.
