When going to a party, killer looks are still a must. We spend so much of our lives working and caring for others that, when the time comes to let loose, you deserve to look and feel your best! And what makes a woman feel better than a gorgeous, bougie dress?
Whatever the season, dresses are always a good idea, and there are plenty of styles to choose from and ways to wear them to suit your personal aesthetic. Here are six ultra-glam looks that are guaranteed to turn heads (for all the right reasons).
1. The Sequin Wrap
This shimmery look combines two things I love: sequins (because you can never get enough shine, amiright?) and the versatile, universally-flattering wrap dress. This look is easy to wear and easy to pull off.
Pro tip: Don’t shy away from mixing gold and silver even if it does defy conventional style norms – it still works!
2. Feathers = Fa-shun
Just in case you missed it, feathers have staged a *major* comeback in recent years and they’re so much fun to wear – and make for the perfect Boomerang opportunity!
Pro tip: If you are going to go out wearing a dress this extra, pair it with simple accessories, such as a clutch bag and heels.
3. High Neck, High Hopes
A halter neck style can be super flattering and can do wonders when it comes to elongating your body. Add metallic sequins to it and you have got yourself a killer look!
Pro tip: If you are going out in a halterneck, wear a strapless bra so that it isn’t exposed which can ruin the overall effect.
4. Feel Yourself in Floral
This cheerful little number has lace-up details at the back that bring a touch of sexy to an otherwise cute ‘fit. And everyone needs a LFD (little floral dress) in their wardrobe.
Pro tip: Slip into a pair of backless heels that are currently trending hard on the style scene to go with this look.
5. Playful in Puff-sleeves
Puff sleeves are *everywhere* right now and we love the playful element they add to a dress. Add a pop of colour or wear a fun print and you’re bound to get stopped and admired.
Pro tip: Have an ear party by adding long, bold earrings that graze your shoulders to make this look even more on-trend.
6. Velvet Haze
A deep, jewel-like hue, like this emerald shade, in a velvet fabric makes for a winning combo – you’ll look expensive and regal (and feel pretty good to the touch, too!).
Pro tip: Cinch your waist with a belt to really show off and accentuate your shape.
Now that you’ve found your perfect look, pour yourself a chilled glass of Shine Club Wine, throw on your show-stopper of choice (hint: any of the above looks will do the trick!) and have a *time* with your girlfriends.
