It happens to all of us, especially this time of year. You’ve got a work party or an annual event you’re actually really excited about, and then the worst happens. You can’t find anything to wear. Maybe the dress you’d planned on wearing doesn’t seem to fit right. Maybe you can’t find the sweater you thought was neatly packed away with your seasonal clothes. Or maybe you just forgot to have your outfit dry-cleaned, and now it’s too late.
These kinds of mishaps can cloud the experience of what would otherwise be a fun, happy memory. They might even make you less likely to sign on for special events in the future. But you shouldn’t have to limit yourself just because your wardrobe isn’t cooperating. Here’s how to set your closet up for success, so you never have to worry about finding the perfect event ready outfit in a flash ever again.
Invest In Pants
The right pants look great with blouses and dresses alike, and free you to choose favorite heels, flats, or boots with ease and versatility. Pants are a freeing choice for your event wardrobe because they’ll make you feel special, yet you’ll be comfortable enough to socialize and work the room. Try a pair of high quality lined leather leggings with some stretch. Our sterling silver brilliant cut band or Eleanora double prong sterling couture silver ring will contrast perfectly with your luxe pants and finish the look.
When In Doubt, Choose Black
Whenever you have the choice between black and another color for an event wardrobe piece, choose black. Chances are this will make it much easier to pair with things you already have, and for events and parties, black never disappoints. You’ll always feel sharp and sophisticated in that LBD or black skinny pants and oversized sweater. Plus, you can always pair a colorful center stone ring with an all black outfit to add an unexpected touch, like our genuine topaz ring or genuine citrine ring collections.
Have One Outfit Per Season
You don’t necessarily have to have completely separate outfits for each season, but you should have planned out what each outfit is, which pieces you can overlap, and account for outfit accessories ahead of time. That way, you’ll never be caught off guard when the weather surprises you. It’s also a good idea to vary jewelry choices by season. For example, a garnet ring could be the perfect choice for a winter event, while our faux pearl pave ring would match your outfit perfectly for a spring party or wedding.
Limit Prints and Patterns
Simplicity is winner. By limiting prints and patterns and only selecting those that you love the best, you’ll guarantee you’ll always feel like a million bucks no matter what you pull from your closet. Keeping it simple with fabric patterns allows you to get more creative in the details, like choosing a ring with a center stone cut you wouldn’t normally go for, or wearing a statement piece like our simulated citrine fashion pave ring.
