Choosing an Outfit to Wear for Your Party

When it comes to hosting a party, there’s lots to think about: the bar, menu, space, guest list, music, and of course, what you will be wearing. Here’s some points to consider.

[1] You will be running the show, do wear something that helps you stand out. It’s perfectly okay to be flamboyant—so, go ahead, buy those statement shoes or over-the-top accessory. Your guests will love that you went all out.

[2] This is no time to be thrifty. Splurge on something that makes you look and feel wonderful. Guys, have a shirt tailor made, gals treat yourself to the designer item, not the knock-off. The investment will forever carry with it fond memories of the night.

[3] Get shopping! Don’t leave it till the last minute—as soon as you send out the invitation, grab that friend who loves to shop to assist in your selection.

[4] Get it on film. Make sure your fab outfit is recorded properly. Have someone you trust on the scene with camera in hand. Check to make sure there is at least one flattering shot of you, for posterity.

[5] For the really big parties, have more than one outfit prepared. If the party goes on all night, it’s the perfect excuse to slip into something still fabulous, but a little more comfortable.
