WHAT TO WEAR: Birthday Party

What to Wear

The number one rule when attending a birthday party is to never try to outshine the birthday girl. This rule mainly applies when it comes to deciding what to wear to the occasion. You never want to look more dressed up than the guest of honor so it is always best to stick to a pair of pants and a cute top.

Everyone owns that one pair of jeans that they could live in and I have come to realize that this one pair of jeans ought to be black. Black is always the new black and complements basically any color you could possibly own. So it is time to find a favorite pair. My personal favorite jeans have been everything from J Brand and 7 For All Mankind to Urban Outfitters. A pair of well-fitted and flattering black jeans is the perfect way to begin your outfit.

Next, look for a shirt that makes a statement. Having a different color collar and cuffs on blouses is the latest trend, so keep a lookout. Next, choose a pair of shoes that go well with the outfit. Even though you should not overdress to a birthday party, heels are a must since they make every outfit look better. Finish off your look with a colored satchel, particularly one in a trendy color such as cobalt, coral and mint. Lastly, put some curls in your hair and you are ready to attend a birthday party!

One Simple Change: Throw on a leather jacket over the outfit and for a night out with friends this winter. If you are going for an edgier look, wear a leather jacket with studs on the collar to give it that extra kick.
