Looking glamorous is easy, but actually feeling glamorous is a real art form. Build yourself a staple wardrobe of ‘going out’ kit using this list below, and you’ll feel top-to-toe confidence and look fabulous too. These are our top six steps to make sure you shine.
1. Sexy underwear
Because feeling amazing starts from the lingerie up. Good underwear that sculpts us to look our sexiest makes us feel it too and you’ll exude that. Whether it’s a peak-a-boob barely-there set or the latest sexy shapewear, invest in a boost for your bust and for your confidence.
2. Statement dress
Don’t go grabbing just any sequined dress that screams glam. Picking the perfect number is twofold and to look and feel your best you have to shop clever. Only opt for styles that suit your shape and show off your best assets. Got good legs, opt for a high hemline. Hourglass figures should make sure they’re nipped in at the waist.
Secondly, the outfit has to have something special that takes it from ordinary to extraordinary. It could be embellishment or a daring cleavage, have a bold shot of colour or cut a killer silhouette. Every dress you try on ask yourself, ‘Is this figure-flattering and does it have the glam factor?’ If the answer is yes, you’ve just found your frock.
3. Hero bag
A hero bag that ties in with your look is essential. If you’ve gone for a full-on embellished dress, keep your accessories simple with something like a envelope clutch – you should only have one show-off piece and let that sing. If your dress is more simple, say with a thigh slash for instance, then feel free to add a more blinged up bag. It’s all about balance.
4. Dreamy jewels
The devil is in the detail and good accessories can take a so-so outfit to sensational. They can also make you feel like you sparkle, so whether it’s a statement ring, a beautiful cuff or a delicate necklace, add one piece of jewellery you love that makes you feel special.
5. Killer heels
This doesn’t mean they should kill your feet. Killer heels should be stunning but definitely not painful – in fact that’s the point. When you find the right pair you’ll be able to walk with confidence and carry them off, because the biggest part of looking good in sexy shoes is being able to sashay! Plus, there are plenty of middy and block heels around this season that are drop dead gorgeous, so try on lots of styles and find your perfect fit.
6. Finishing touches
A beautiful dress coat, a fur stole, a sequin cape. Because there’s nothing worse than hiding the most perfectly pulled-together outfit under any old cover up. You want to look and feel fabulous all night long – and that means in the taxi queue too.
Not forgetting the boys…
We know guys want to look and feel the part too when a big night out is on the cards. Here are three easy steps to make sure you’re at your best.
1. Get grooming
Whether it’s a beard trim, wet shave, hair cut or eyebrow tidy, before you even think about getting dressed get the basics right. These might sound like little things but good grooming makes a massive difference to your appearance. Plus, you might not want to admit it, but you know a bit of pampering makes you feel good too.
2. Top tailoring
There are various degrees of dapper, but when it comes to looking sharp a good suit never goes out of fashion. A suit is the perfect dress-up or dress-down staple. Add a shirt and tie for the full effect, or a blazer with well-cut trousers and a t-shirt to create a more casual look for relaxed nights out. The key to top tailoring is fit and fabric, so make sure you shop around and try on as many as possible. The perfect
match will flatter your frame and fill you with confidence. If you find a style that’s amazing but needs a nip tuck, then get it altered by a seamstress.
3. Fine finishing touches
Don’t forget good quality accessories. A stylish pocket square, some great brogues, a sleek watch – these are the little things that take an outfit from average to outstanding and will ensure you stand out.
We hope this guide helps you feel glam this party season.
