With or without a pandemic, the situations in which we need to dress glamorous will continue to occur. Whether it is for a special event such as a wedding, or it is for a romantic dinner, these contexts appear daily. So then, how to create a gorgeous outfit? I like to call this process “dress to impress”, So I invite you to sit comfortably and step into a world where glamor appears at every step.
Choose Sassy Decorative Elements
Some of the most spectacular decorative elements are oversized bows / ribbons, puff sleeves, metallic fringes. In short, all those simple design elements that have evolved to a new level. In today's outfit, the flamboyant vibe is given - of course! - by this oversized bow in an intense hot pink shade. This unique element makes the outfit pop and yes, it truly impresses everybody around.
Think of Colors as a Good Friend
Colors are present in our lives to be our friends. And even though in the past two years fashion has seemed to drown in a sea of neutral colors, designers still continue to create colorful pieces that give pulse to this fascinating fashion universe.
I recommend the following colors: aquamarine, turquoise, hot pink, mint green, solar yellow or lilac.
Forget about the Eternal Clutch
We all went at some point for the same accessory to an elegant outfit: the eternal clutch. Warning! I’m not saying you should stop wearing a clutch when attending a special event, but that’s not the purpose of this blog post. This blog post is about how to create a gorgeous outfit, and simplicity is not synonymous with this expression. Ignoring this long parenthesis, let’s go back to subject! My recommendation would be to choose a handbag with a special "construction". There is a great attraction at the moment for bags in the shape of a globe, mini bags or handbags like the one you can see in the pictures. Below, I selected a number of such wow bags.
Do Consider the Fabrics of the Clothes
Let's start from this particular context created by my outfit. These lace puff sleeves together with the satin body make this outfit a spectacular one. It is very important to choose the fabric according to the context. For example, you won't choose to wear cotton to a romantic dinner at a restaurant, will you?
Well, for these special events I recommend special fabrics such as lace, satin, velvet, tulle or organza.
Choose a Fabulous Pair of Shoes
Pay attention! I didn't say "heeled shoes", but simply "shoes". Because, yes, there exist spectacular flat shoes. What makes a pair of shoes a gorgeous one? There are two main points: the color and the pattern. In my outfit today, I chose to wear strappy sandals in a fantastic color palette. These are exactly the sandals I wore to my civil wedding and to which I gladly return whenever the opportunity arises. For a blog post with a romantic note, I invite you here to read the story of our civil wedding. Below I have prepared a list of shoes with / without heels, which falls into the category of “fabulous pairs of shoes”.
