An outdoor event

An important occasion
When it comes to planning an outfit for an important occasion, it is vital that you make your plans well in advance. It will help you to feel more relaxed about the upcoming event. Even if you don’t have a specific event in mind, it is a good idea to have a go-to outfit in your wardrobe. Your outfit could be anything from a little black dress to a perfectly fitted pair of jeans. Then, if you are feeling nervous, you will always have something up your sleeve. You should also remember to try on your outfit before the big day. Trying it on is a great chance for you to work through any problems.

An activity with plenty of refreshments
To have fun at an event that is providing plenty of refreshments, you will need to make yet another wise style choice. This is not the time to wear a bodycon dress or tight leather pants. Instead, you should put together an outfit that is flattering but extremely comfortable. Otherwise, it will be impossible for you to enjoy your food and drink in style.
An event where you don’t know the dress code
Finally, you need to think about what you would wear to an event that doesn’t provide a dress code. Instead of giving into panicking, it is important that you try to reach out to the host or one of your fellow guests. However, if this just isn’t possible, you will need to find an outfit that can be dialed up or toned down. You can do this by wearing your fanciest coat. That way, if you are overdressed, you can simply remove it the moment you realize your mistake. You could also wear over-the-top jewelry, but keep a subtle alternative in your purse, as this is also something that you can change if necessary. Then, you should ensure the outfit itself as simple as possible. Although it is nice to make an impression, this is one occasion where you might want to play it safe.
