4 Essential Pieces For The Evening Wardrobe

Since most of us stay locked away in a cubicle during the day, we often seize the opportunity to break out of the style rut and try something more daring at night.  But before you go to your closet and bring out a low-cut leopard print blouse and black miniskirt, take the time to re-assess your Friday night wardrobe choices. Remember that an elegant simple cocktail dress is not only more classy and elegant, but it’s also a lot more flattering than anything tight and low. Here are four fashion essentials that every fashionista needs to enhance her evening wardrobe!

1- Dark Denim Pants

A fabulous pair of simple dark denim pants makes everything look much more chic. Try to find a pair of these in either straight-leg or flare leg because skinny jeans are too trendy right now. A well-made pair of jeans will look great with everything from silky camisoles to printed halter tops to jeweled tunics.

2- Little Black Dress

It’s no secret that you will get more style mileage from an LBD than you would with a bright green frock. Shop for a pretty dress that is simple yet elegant, like a wool strapless dress with minimal details. Your little black dress will be perfect for cocktail parties, dinner dates, and small charity events.

3- Metallic Accessories

It could be a pair of gold hoop earrings or a silver evening clutch, but every fashionista needs at least one metallic accessory for the evening. Remember to choose either gold or silver at a given time — never mix gold and silver together. It is okay to wear silver shoes and carry a clutch or small handbag in a bold color like red or royal purple.

4- A Pair Of Sexy Sandals

Classic high heels will work for evening, but a pair of strappy stilettos has a more stylish impact, especially with jeans and dresses.  Remember to keep a few things in mind when purchasing a pair of evening shoes: comfort and quality. You don’t want to buy a pair of cheap shoes and have the straps break the first day you wear them, but you don’t want a pair of shoes that’s going to kill your feet either. Try to find a mid-price designer pair from Nine West.
