Hey My loves!
Are you attending any events this summer or looking forward to a special occasion? If so, it’s important to ensure you make a stylish entrance every time. Whether you’re going to a friend’s wedding, or you’re dressing up to the nines for a charity gala, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Planning your outfit
Nothing is more exciting than planning outfits for special events. In some cases, you’ll have free reign to wear what you want. For other occasions, there may be a dress code. Before you start planning your outfits, think about the style and theme of the event. Are you going to a relaxed daytime tea party, a trendy fashion show or a black tie ball? Tailor your look to suit the occasion.
If there isn’t a dress code, it’s always wise to search for something unique. If you’re going to a wedding, for example, the last thing you want is to bump into another guest with the same dress. Look in independent boutiques or shop online to find something nobody else will have. If you have a plain dress, you can dress it up and customize your look with statement accessories. I love doing that. Try some different options on with your dress and see which work best.
Getting to the venue
If you’re going to a lavish gala, there’s nothing quite like making an entrance in a chauffeur-driven car. Opt for a classic limousine or a sleek convertible. If you’re celebrating your birthday and you want all eyes to be on you, why not book a Hummer or turn up in a vintage classic? Check out companies like hummercity limo hire for more ideas.
Walking the red carpet
Red carpet walks are not just for Oscar nominees. Even if there isn’t a red carpet in sight, you can still work the crowd with a sassy walk. Take your time and watch where you’re going. If you have a long dress, hitch up the skirt to prevent you from tripping over the hem.
If you’re a black tie event or a wedding, and there are photographers around, it’s important to perfect your pose. Look at pictures from awards ceremonies for tips. Follow in the footsteps of the A-listers to learn how to make your outfit look amazing and choose the most flattering angles.
It’s usually fine to be fashionably late to a party. However, at events, which have set timings, such as weddings, it’s essential to be early. You don’t want to be disturbing the ceremony or stealing the limelight from the bride. Give yourself plenty of time to get ready and get to the venue. I so struggle with being on time…it’s the Jamaican in me lol.
If you’re looking forward to parties, charity events or birthday celebrations this summer, keep these tips in mind. They will help you to plan standout outfits, make an entrance and grab the headlines for all the right reasons. Give yourself time, plan your outfit, and dare to be different when putting your look together. Arrive in style in a limo or SUV and perfect your walk. Most importantly, be confident, and have an amazing time.
