Now that Christmas is over (boohoo) it’s time to make your party wear work a little extra hard. How you may think? I’m sure you’ve all heard the phrase, day to night party wear. Well now lets reverse that theory and voila you have party wear to day wear which includes sequin skirts that get to grace broad daylight, party dresses that work as day dresses and glitter heels that will form a friendship with your jeans and jumper ensemble. Hello to smart dressing, it’s the recession after all!
To begin, seperate your partywear collection into ‘workable’ and ‘non-workable’. Lets be honest, a full on sequin maxi dress can’t be transformed into a daytime appropriate dress. Separate sequin pieces will work, LBDs will ALWAYS work, silk playsuits, satin pants and so on….
Now that we have our pieces, we can think about pairing them down so think about layering. Layering crisp white shirts, oversized jumpers, cardigans, jeans and so on will help to dilute the ‘party’ piece making it wearable. Take a look at Fashion Blogger Daniela below, who demonstrates this theory like a pro. Sequin skirt? Tick. Loose casual top? Tick. Smart comfy and casual pumps? Tick. Who said sequins can’t be casual?! LOVE this outfit.
Take a look at this fab girl that I snapped in London. Her outfit is flawless, taking some skin tight satin trousers she pairs them down perfectly with a casual cute shirt and a trendy socks and shoes combo. Satin trousers have never looked so casual and chic!
Fancy a bit of the style yet have no party wear? Just your luck, the SALE is now on! Pick up some fab party pieces for a fraction for the original price and start styling! Smart styling and smart shopping, High Five!
Well, I hope you enjoyed these tips and tricks! Love from Suzi x
