Party Outfit Ideas That Aren’t Dresses


So, 2017 has passed and now a new year awaits of a list of new party events that you will have to attend or you will host yourself. The challenge, however, is always what to wear. Usually, you know you will be wearing a dress and so you just have to pick the right one. But now you just feel like you are wearing the same outfit every time you party and it kind of feels boring.

Here are five fresh looks that you can wear for parties that don’t involve a single boring dress.

A new twist on your classic power suit

For the formal events and parties, a makeshift suit is more appropriate. Wear cropped velvet pants and team them up with a jacquard blazer and a bustier top underneath. Make sure you only remove the jacket once your coworker or anyone more formal has left the room.

Sleeves that have a festive look

Nothing flatters a figure more than a blouse with V-neck and tied waist with bell sleeves. Go for a very festive color or are dark shades. Pair them with white pants to complement the whole outfit. Partner heels with a more neutral color.

Skirt that checks every box

Velvet pencil skirt is now put to a great use. The length of the skirt is perfectly appropriate for any occasion with your family or coworkers without looking stuffy. To keep the look casual pair it with a leather jacket and finish off with a killer knee-length boots.

Ditch your reds and savor this millennial pink

Millenial pink is a refreshing alternative to your classic party red. The key is to wear the color in festive fabrics. Wear a blush pink velvet blazer with a sequined blouse again in the same hue with embellished jeans. To top off the outfit wear a chic satin sneaker. Wearing this outfit you will only be glad to not look common with any of the girls in the room.

Embellishments from head to toe

Shoulder cutouts, frills, and florals can all be part of our party outfits. Make sure though that it is dark hue so that you still keep things sane. Shoulder cutout blouse with leather skinny pants adds a sleek touch to the outfit. Partner the outfit with embellished flats.
