How Do You Dress For A Birthday Dinner?
Dressing up for birthdays can be daunting. How do you dress up? What do you wear? Do you overdress or underdress? Do you upstage the actual birthday girlie? It's tough, but leet's make one thing clear. NEVER shy away from dressing how you want to dress! It's incredibly fun once you've got the dress code in hand, so make sure you express your style! Note to self: ALWAYS let the birthday hunni be the centre of attention. It is their day, but that doesn't mean you can't dress up for yourself and look super cute! No one puts Baby in the corner! Once you've got your birthday invite, make sure you start planning ahead (Pinterest is always our go-to for outfit inspo), from head-to-toe - staying true to the theme and setting off the soiree, of course. Even if you have a few perfect sequin dresses hanging in your wardrobe itching to be worn, are they really appropriate for the dress code required? Be ready to invest a little for the birthday dinner, and forage online for the perfect dinner dress. ASOS is a great place to start and make sure to use the 'filter' option to narrow down colour and style. Don't overly splurge, and pick a dress you can afford! Once you’ve spent a little time picking out the perfect dress, focus on shoes and accessories as a second, and hairstyle and makeup in close third. Usually, birthday dinners call for a formal dress code - either black tie or cocktail - and while that might be a bit confusing, it’s really not that hard; here are the perfect, fool-proof dress options to wow at your next birthday dinner:
