One of the most important fashion decisions that girls have to make as the winter approaches is what to wear for the upcoming party season. Winter usually involves a few special celebrations, from work Christmas parties to family occasions and New Year nights out.
So how are you supposed to manage all these special occasions from the perspective of your wardrobe? A lot of people find that it’s best to stick to the classics and this is a good approach for a couple of reasons.
One the one hand, classic dresses like the timeless little black dress are items that girls often have tucked away in a corner of their wardrobes just so they can bring them out at the right time. Just as men can always get away with a sharp suit and a crisp white shirt for a special occasion, girls can turn heads and look and feel great in an LBD even if it’s made numerous similar appearances.
Then there is the impact of the LBD. There’s no doubt that it’s a versatile garment in terms of how people wear it. Some are able to channel a really sexy persona while others manage to look sweet and charming. Some take advantage of the sophistication of a little black number while others love the element of fun that pervades its style.
This versatility is key to success of the LBD during the winter party season. It allows you to use the same garment for a number of events to create a host of different impressions. The LBD also plays the part of the chameleon sometimes and riffs nicely off different accessories and items of jewellery that reflect the particular mood of the event.
Of course, there’s no harm in updating your collection. Thrifty girls love the opportunity to use a dress that looks great on them more than once, but others are less keen to give their friends, colleagues and family members repeat viewings of the same frocks, especially in a short space of time.
Then there’s the influence of the camera to consider and all those photographs that get posted to social networking sites – it’s all too easy to look the same in each one because the camera comes out on special occasions and your favourite dress is present at all of them!
In short, classic styles like the LBD are perfect at this time, but go with your instincts when it comes to mixing things up.
