Are you headed to a party this weekend, and have no clue what to wear? Here are some tips, and a great outfit idea, to get you party-ready!
This cute outfit is sure to turn heads at any dance or dorm party...it's even great for a friend's b-day! Try a floral dress, like Hollister's Jack Creek ($44.50) that doesn't scream summer. The muted shades on this one make it work for fall but the pattern is still fun and fresh. Layer the Wheeler Springs cardi ($39.50) in turquoise over it to keep warm on the way to and from the party--if you get hot once you're there, you can always stash it in your bag. Speaking of bags, bring along a simple tote to store your makeup, cash and cell, plus a little extra room for your sweater and heels (once the party gets going, you'll probably want to slip into more comfortable shoes). The AE Utility Tote ($39.50) in navy looks great with your outfit and has plenty of room in case you have to hold onto a friend's stuff, too. As far as shoes go, surprise everyone with a stunning pair of wedges (such as the Steve Madden Valour in teal fab, $29.99 at Famous Footwear) but keep some basic flip-flops in your tote than you can slip into later when your feet get tired (try American Eagle's Havaianas Top Metallic Flip Flop in metallic silver, $18). Accessories, of course, are a must for any outfit, but especially for a party. Look for sparkly pieces that will catch everyone's eye, such as the AE Blue Statement Necklace ($15.50) and the AE Heart Ring ($15.50).
With your outfit all planned, go out and have some fun wherever you're headed!
