6 Shimmery Guest Outfits For A Cocktail Party of Someone You Sorta Kinda Know.

Bling-spiration for you!

Not all weddings you get an invitation to are from your closest pals or relatives, some are those mutual friends you have met once or twice at a party or your father’s colleague’s daughter. Well, as far as you are concerned, they are acquaintances, you know but then not really.

And when you are dressing up for someone like that, it is a tricky pick. You want to look stylish, however, not too extravagant. These are the times you have to work with shimmer and sequins.

Here are 5 shimmery dresses for the cocktail party of someone you kinda-sorta know!

An off-shoulder dress:

Style Tip: Opt for something in the shade of beige or off white that makes the shimmer in the dress stand out. Keep in mind that your neckline should not be boring, you can be experimental with that. Additionally, style your hair in the form of a messy ponytail or a bun to establish an aura of sophistication.

Sheer Elegance:

Style Tip: One can never go wrong with a pastel shade. Keep it subtle yet beautiful. If you pick a pastel shade like rose gold, make sure the shimmer isn’t too loud and takes away the attention from the softness of colour. Opt for something along the same lines while visiting a summer or spring wedding.

Style Tip: To make a dress like this a bit reserved in appearance, opt for a sweetheart neckline with or without sleeves or pair it with a Capes. Pick capes or jackets matching to your dress that has a touch of shimmer or embellishments, and you are all set to go.

Go bold with Thigh-high slit:

Let your dress do the talking for you. If you want to make a bold call, you can always pick a dress that is not floor length. However, we need to get over the shimmery LBDs and add colour. Opt for something golden and silver that will give your look an edgy taste. Keep the makeup minimal because that is the key to looking chic.
