Dressing for a Cocktail Party| Comfort

One thing you want to consider when dressing for a cocktail party is comfort. How can you enjoy the party if your feet are hurting or your shape wear is cutting off circulation? Being cute does not have to be uncomfortable! Tips for finding a dress that provides comfort:

1. Avoid clingy pieces that require shape wear
2. Shop for dresses that play up your strongest features
3. If there will be standing or dancing, avoid new shoes or shoes that are not comfortable

Dressing for a Cocktail Party| Why does it have to be a dress?

While many times, dresses are the attire of choice, it is not the requirement. There are several pieces that can be styled in a dressy and often festive fashion. Take for instance a sequin jacket. Paired with a solid color skirt, tights and funky shoes, a sequin jacket can instantly create a stylish party look.

Dressing for a Cocktail Party| Don’t Procrastinate

While reading a fashion magazine a couple of months ago, I ran across a very true statement. We often find the best dresses for parties when we are not shopping for them. Do not wait until it’s time to party to shop for the perfect party attire. Keep your eyes open for inspiration and deals year round. This means when party time arrives, it’s no pressure to get out there and shop for the perfect look. It also means you are less likely to bump into someone at the party in the same outfit.

Hopefully these three tips can help you prepare for the upcoming holiday parties. Deciding what to wear to a cocktail party is not a challenging task at all…if you are prepared! Now come on, let’s party!
