PARTY OUTFITS - How to stand out without having it ALL out.
So I have been asked to pull some looks for a birthday party. Parties are easy! A cute dress, a pair of heels and you feel like a million bucks. But what about those signifigant turning of age parties? your 16ths, 18ths and 21st? You want something just that little bit special than your average birthday (after all there are going to be about a thousands photos uploaded the next day)
So how to stand out at a party without showing off too much skin? (remember how many family members will be at these certain parties you don’t want to be giving nana a heartache)
The answer is colour!! Colour works for everyone of any skin tone or personality. It’s just a matter of finding the right colour for you! Redheads aren’t going to look great in the same thing Hispanic girls do! So I’m going to break it down for you. This is a really simplified list (only three skin tones) and doesn’t take into account hair colour and eye colour etc. If you want a more detailed listing why not inbox me!
FAIR SKIN - Dear fair skinned beauties - PLEASE put down the fake tan there is nothing worse than looking like you have been bathing in Fanta, got freckles? BEAUTIFUL! So do some of the most beautiful girls in the world. Embrace it and find inspirations from beauties such as Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey
Fair skins can look really beautiful in whites so why not go the angelic look? Dress up plain white with the use of shimmery pearls and silvers. Remember the angelic look is all about innocence! Wear loose long flowy skirts, peasant styled tops that are dressed up with sequins or beaded detail.
OLIVE SKIN - Olive skin looks beautiful in mermaid shades of turquoise and blues. Embrace this and your style icon Vanessa Hudgens who’s deep olive skin makes this blue dress just pop! Relaxed Boho styles of dresses that are made formal with accessories is a good way to pull off this look.
BROWN SKIN - All my chocolate beauties! Let’s see you in RED! Take the truly fierce and amazing Beyonce as your inspiration. Red looks beautiful when it’s structured. Red is also one of those colours that can easily look tacky if it isn’t done right. Try to keep a tailored look and try to use red in dresses. If the dress is tight on top make sure the skirt is loose and vice versa. Ruffles, off shoulder looks can soften the bust line creating a look of classic femininity.
