WHAT TO WEAR: Celebration

It is that time of year again–your best friend’s birthday! Did you really think this article was going to be all about you?

Well, it is! But only sort of. We have all been through it—it’s your best friend’s birthday dinner and, of course, you want the night to be all about her/him, but you also want to stand out and let your inner Fashionista/o shine. I am here to tell you that I have found the perfect combination.

This month’s Fashionista ROCKED her celebratory birthday dinner outfit. Everything about her style is so right. She has the best of both worlds—dressy and casual. She played up a cropped white tank with a tie-dye maxi skirt. The pattern on the skirt screams casual, but the maxi skirt itself says formal. This Fashionista knew exactly what to pair together for a classy yet everyday look. This outfit will help you stand out without stealing the spotlight. If you and your fashionable friends follow this Fashionista’s trendsetting style, your whole “squad” will be able to wow the crowd at dinner!

To top her whole outfit off, she added a layered necklace from American Eagle Outfitters and a comfy pair of Franco Sarto slingback sandals, which are becoming especially popular around Boulder! This Fashionista is ready to take on ALL of her friends’ birthday dinners this semester!

One Simple Change: Ready to get super serious for a fancy dinner or formal? Switch out the patterned maxi skirt for a solid black one and wear an edgy gold arm cuff instead. You will turn a rowdy night out with the girls into a sophisticated evening.
