When it comes to deciding what to wear for a special event, it is not always easy. Sometimes there will be a special dress code required. Since there are so many outfits to choose from, we have to understand the appropriate attire for various occasions to leave a good impression. Dressing up for a special occasion is all part of the fun. Here are some tips on deciding what to wear for a special occasion:
It is important to know the what, where, when and how of the event:
1)You have to know what type of event you are going to. That way, you will be able to select the perfect outfit to wear for the occasion.
2)Knowing when the event will be taken place is also very important. For example: festive events, convocations, birthdays, concerts etc.
3)Where is it going to be held? For example, outdoor weddings require a smart casual outfit, whereas indoor weddings require formal attire.
If you can’t find an outfit in your wardrobe, then it is time for you to shop for the outfit for the special occasion. Be honest with yourself! Try it on and determine the good points and the bad points. Although there may be some bad points, but do not let your flaws make you lose confidence, instead you should embrace and recognize your flaws and find a way to fix them. Put on the outfit and look into the mirror to make sure that your outfit will be impressive at your event. Bear in mind that the occasions determine the characteristic state of how we look and feel like. It is more than just about wearing the clothes that you like. It is actually about wearing an outfit that pays respect to the occasion and the people around you.
It is wise to consider the host requirement for the event. You don’t want to take the risk by offending your host by being overdressed or under dressed. Always be practical and realistic when it comes to where, when, and why you are going there and how it will be when you arrive. Let the invitation, the season, and the hour be your guides. If you are close to the host, ask her for advice.
For example if you are attending a wedding function, it is advisable to wear a black or white tie for men. A dark suit tuxedo will go perfectly with dark shoes. It is important to choose the suitable colors for the time and the season. For women, a white dress is a no-no. White color is only meant for the bride. Long dress, knee-length dress with accessories will be fine in such formal events.
If you are still unsure of what you are looking for, there are many ways where you can gain inspiration from. Look out for celebrity you admired what she is wearing, in the magazine, movies etc. Hope these will help you to find the best for your special occasions.
