words Alexa Wang

What To Wear

The evening is a time for looking your best. It’s all about feeling glamorous and showing off your figure in evening wear that will have you turning heads as you walk into the event.

But what should one wear? With so many options available, it can be difficult to know where to start. That’s why we’ve created this guide with our favorite evening looks for women!

1. Consider the event’s dress code

Knowing the evening event’s dress code is the most important thing to do when wondering what to wear for a night event. If you end up wearing something that isn’t allowed, not only will you feel uncomfortable but it can also be embarrassing and make your evening less enjoyable.

Some evening events are casual while others require formal attire or semi-formal attire. Therefore, it is important to find out what evening events require beforehand so you can feel confident in wearing the right outfit!

If you still aren’t sure about the dress code of an evening event, just call or email whoever’s hosting and ask them what they would recommend guests to wear if that were a possibility. This way, you won’t be caught off guard.

If an evening event doesn’t have a dress code, then feel free to wear whatever makes you comfortable! It is your evening after all so it’s up to you what type of outfit you want to wear for the occasion. Just make sure that there aren’t any rules or requirements at this evening event.

2. Choose a color scheme that matches your outfit

Picking the right color scheme to go with your evening dress is important. For evening events, it’s a good idea to choose an outfit that has similar colors as the theme for the event.

For example: if you are attending a red carpet evening event where celebrities will be in attendance and wearing formal evening wear attire, then it is recommended to go with something dark or muted such as a black evening dress.

If you are going to an evening event that is more on the casual side, then it is recommended to choose something bright and colorful such as blue or yellow evening dresses. The color schemes don’t have to match exactly but this can help guide your decision in selecting clothes for evening events.

3. Make sure you have all the necessary items to complete your looks, like shoes and jewelry

Shoes are essential for evening looks, as they complete the overall look. To choose shoes with your evening dress, try to find a pair of high heels that matches your outfit’s color or style.

If you plan on wearing jewelry, make sure it is minimal and understated but still makes an impact in terms of appearance. For evening looks, you could always wear a pair of earrings and your necklace.

You can complete the look with an evening bag that goes well with your dress. For example, if you are wearing red evening shoes, try to find an evening bag in a similar color!

A great tip is to not wear any makeup as it will make you look overdone and will take away from your evening dress.

4. Have an idea of what you want to wear so it doesn’t take up too much time getting ready in the morning 

Knowing what you want to wear will save you valuable time getting ready in the morning. Try thinking about outfits ahead of time and have them laid out on your bed so it is easy to get dressed without having stress over what to put on. This way, even if you are running late for work or an evening event, you can quickly find something that fits with your evening plans.

5. Dress for success – make sure you are comfortable with what you are wearing and feel confident while at the event!

A very important to keep in mind is that you want to impress the person who invited you! Also, it’s important to know what type of evening event this is. Is there going to be a dress code? If so, follow it or ask for more information ahead of time (by sending an email).

For example: if someone invites you out for drinks and dinner – wear something sleek and sexy yet classy at the same time. Maybe pick up some boots/heels with your outfit but remember not too high as they can make walking difficult especially after eating dinner! Opting for a blazer instead can help look polished while adding both style and comfort. Pair your ensemble with jewelry like simple stud earrings – nothing too flashy or expensive-looking; go for more casual evening wear or your evening event outfit!

As for makeup, keep in mind that this is an evening event and it’s not the time to experiment with different colors. If you pick the right combination, you will always be able to turn heads with an evening dress and everything that goes with it. Stick with neutrals like a light pink lipstick (if you are going to be eating dinner) otherwise try a nude color along with simple eye shadow. Finally – don’t forget about perfume – pick out one that reflects your personality but something subtle so you do not overpower others around you.

6. Have a few options on hand so you can change up your look if needed

Being able to change up your look in the evening is a great way to keep things interesting. If you are interested in trying out new looks, have some options available so that it will be easy for you to change if needed. This could mean bringing more than one dress or other outfit options with you. You might even want to consider bringing an evening gown and changing it into jeans after dinner depending on what direction the evening goes in!

Have a little black dress (or any color) ready just in case there’s something formal planned – If going clubbing, wear comfy shoes because dance floors get pretty dirty – Wear gold jewelry when dressed up; silver can make outfits seem too casual while wearing white gold pieces makes a night time outfit feel too fancy.

dressing tips

We hope these tips have helped you to feel more confident in your decision to wear a dress, or not. Whether you choose an outfit that matches the event’s dress code or one of your own color schemes, make sure it is something that makes you happy and comfortable! If all else fails, ask yourself this question: “am I dressed for success?”
