The holiday party season might be firmly behind us, but there will always be events around the corner to dress for and it will always be relevant to discuss how to rock the hell out of them without spending a fortune on new outfits. I am a broken record, but seriously, good accessories are EVERYTHING.
Cute outfits, like the red jumper I'm wearing, are super fun to have and I think it's pretty obvious why I chose to wear it for this shoot. However, making statement outfits the focus of your event wardrobe is an expensive endeavour - you'll always feel like you need something new.
The key to dressing for multiple events in a short time period is to choose a basic outfit (black dress, black or dark denim, simple shirt, you get the idea) and then pick a few strategic statement accessory pieces to mix and match with it.
Take a look at my sweet friend, Nicole, above. She's wearing a fun little LBD with a killer jacket, but without that jacket it's a completely different look. She could choose to make shoes the focus of the outfit, or a piece of statement jewellery. She could wear pumps or a great pair of booties. The options are endless and so are the looks.
If you go to the image below, you'll see my girl Lacey went the black jeans route and chose to make her shoes the focus of the outfit. Side note: how gorge are they?! Sparkles + Party = YAS!
I think y'all get the idea here - one simple, classic outfit will get you through multiple events with the right accessories.
Happy 2018 - cheers!
