Have an upcoming party that you want to look jaw-droppingly good, fashionable and trendy, but don’t know what to wear and where to start? Not to worry. You’ve come to the right place for some great tips for the latest trendy clothes for women.
Navigating the dress codes of festive functions can be baffling, especially at this time of year when we’re just over with beach parties and backyard family BBQs and getting close to cooler weather and upcoming Thanksgiving family gatherings, Christmas and other fall/winter events and festivities. This change of season calls for different types of outfits and requires us to mentally prepare ourselves in transitioning from lace maxi beach dresses, floral kimonos and other types of summery outfits to more seasonally appropriate, yet trendy clothes for women. The transition from one season to another can sometimes be very frustrating, especially if you have many events coming up and you’re a busy person who doesn’t have a ton of time to shop around for new threads.
With that being said, keep in mind that yes, coming up with new outfit ideas for all the festivities coming our way can be daunting and usually a bit frustrating (who has a choice of red-carpet gowns hanging in their wardrobe?!… Not me for sure!). However, fall and winter festivities are supposed to be fun and dressing for these occasions should always be FUN and a JOY as well. Especially with the recent upsurge of online women’s clothing stores and plenty of unique online clothing stores for women that are open 24/7, finding trendy fall/winter women’s clothes for parties is at least less stressful than it used to be.
To get you started and help you figure out how to pick the perfect party outfit, I’ve gathered a few helpful tips and outfit ideas to get this party started right…
I prefer more of a relaxed style when celebrating with family, something fuss-free that allows for some indulgence, but still looks stylish. Whether you go with a look that’s more leopard, floral, or just plain, a jumpsuit that makes the look is always appropriate for a family festive holiday party. However, considering the season we’re at in the moment, I suggest going with a striped mustard or black jumpsuit. Jumpsuits are comfy enough to be able to sit or walk around in even a small house full of people, yet still very trendy and fashionable.
A Night Out With The Girls
An outing with friends is the perfect time to take your look fashion forward and explore the season’s latest trends. I agree that a classic little black or burgundy dress can always work well for a nighttime party, but who says festive outfits shouldn’t allow for more of a sense of your own personal style? You may be sick of seeing sparkly and bling-bling dresses around this season a lot, but they are there for a reason. It’s a great opportunity for you to try to get out of your comfort zone a bit and besides, looking all blingy and edgy is part of a girls’ night outing!
So, I suggest putting that black dress aside for this one occasion and try a sequin dress or romper with knee-length suede boots to give it a little taste of fall/winter.
If you are the type that LOVESSS black and owns a million black outfits and has no shame, that is OKAY! Though if you are going out with your girls or guy friends and plan to party all night long, you may want to think about replacing that plain black outfit with a lace dress, which is still black (of course!) and simple, but it has that trendy look to it which makes it stand out a little bit, complete it with a pair of brown or burgundy velvet boots and a matching body-cross.
An Office Party
Work parties can be tricky to get right fashion-wise, especially annual festivities and seasonal social outings. The key is to strike a balance between looking stylish, while maintaining a degree of professionalism. While it might be tempting to go with all sequins blazing, I would argue that a classic look is perhaps more appropriate. To pull off that office party, I suggest going with a cape blazer, either black suit pants or a black skirt with a slit in front, and pointed-toe shoes. If you’re more of a dress person, go with a colorful lace dress that will make you look very put together and office-appropriate, yet very trendy. To make the outfit look seasonally appropriate, match it with a pair of black ankle-length boots with a tiny bit of heels.
A third outfit that works for an office party is a jumpsuit. Jumpsuits are very versatile and can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. If you like to stand out in the party but still maintain that professional look, go with a red jumpsuit, black heels and black clutch. You’ll be the star of the party!
Tired of party dresses and complicated women’s fashion trends that give you headaches and no joy anymore? I hear you!
There are times when we’ve had so many social events and festivities back to back that we just want to take it easy for the next event and look simple yet trendy. The key is to look for balance. For occasions like this, I suggest going with High Waist Liquid Leggings and a Halter Neck Bodysuit. Complete the look with a pair of pretty studs or a statement necklace, just to make you look like you’ve come to a party and not a funeral!
Just a final bonus tip for those who are big fans of online women’s fashion clothing stores. Of course, there are tons of great online women’s clothing stores and online shopping can make your life a lot easier without breaking the bank, but there are tricks to shopping online which you need to know very well to get the most out of online stores. One such thing is taking care to know your measurements really well. The key to making online shopping work for you: a tape measure.
You need to know your measurements — not just your size. I’m a big fan of online shopping, but I find that sizes vary across brands and even cuts, so note your shoulder, bust, waist, hip, and inseam measurements, or at least have them saved in your phone notes or wherever you feel comfortable, so you’ll have them handy. That way, when you do decide to buy women’s clothes online you don’t end up with a dress that fits your younger self!
