Stuck on what to wear for an upcoming event you are attending? You don't want to dress too casual, but you also don't want to be more dressed up than the host! Every now and then you are invited to an event there is always that unanswered question of, "…what will I wear?!" Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Whether the invitation has a dress code or not, here are some useful tips on what kind of clothing to wear to any occasion.
-The way you accessorize can change the whole look and either dress up or dress down an outfit. (ex. glasses, belts, watches, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, scarves, or bags)
-The amount of effort you put into your appearance and grooming can really make a difference to your whole look. You may look more sophisticated or put together from the way you style your hair/facial hair or do your makeup.
-Usually the later the event is, the dressier it becomes
-It’s better to be overdressed rather than underdressed
-It doesn’t hurt to ask the host what to wear, most of the time they will gladly help you out
*If you are still uncomfortable asking the host on what to wear, you can ask another guest who is attending, a friend, a family member, or even the store employee that you are buying your clothes from!
In the end, wear what you feel comfortable in and don’t worry what other people think of you. No one really cares what you wear as long as you feel good about yourself in it. Of course this doesn’t mean wear jeans and a t-shirt to a wedding but if you feel like dressing up a little extra nobody is stopping you from doing you!
