It’s party time12:16PM, Dec 12, 2012
If there is anyone who can guide you through the landmine that is party dressing (without looking tacky), it’s Cosmo’s fashion director Nicole Adolphe, who just happen to be one of the chicest people we know. So to look super chic this summer, all you gotta do is follow these easy-peasy fash-pro tips...
Make it neon – Brights can be applied to anything but wear a bodycon dresses if you’re feeling confident or, if you’re more modest, try a highlighter silk cami with denim or printed pants.
The skater dress – The ultimate house or pub party dress. Wear with studded flat boots for an effortless chic look.
Brocade – That’s the shiny fabric with swirly wallpaper type print on it. Pick cute shorts, skirts or a dress in it and you’re set.
Short – Sorry if you’re a lover of maxi dresses, but this summer it’s time to go short. Try a loose shift dress if you’re not a fan of short and tight.
High necklines with racer backs – Plunging necklines have had their day, now it’s all about showing off shoulders and side boob.
The shoe – This summer THE shoe is thin-heeled and strappy. Look for a bit of gold detailing or studding to give your outfit an edge.
Printed pants – Whether they’re jeans or trousers, team the printed pant with a sequin top or silky top and heels for a night out.
The clutch – Get one with a strap so you’re not attached to it all night.
Statement earrings – You need no other accessory if you’ve got a great pair of big statement earrings on.
The crop bustier – Show off your mid-section with a cute pair of pleat-front shorts, or just wear one under a sheer top.
Now, go forth and party.
