Diner with sweetheart girlfriends and style : how to dress up
Dinner with your girlfriends is probably the event you are waiting for weeks (if you have three kids like me). We know we’re going to have a great time #zerocensorship, Sex & The City style… But before there is the deadline : which outfit to honor this great great occasion For me, the choice of the outfit is an integral part of the fun I’m going to have, actually it starts here. But this may not be the case for everyone.
So here are a few tips on how to dress up for a dinner with your girlfriends.
Dinner with your girlfriends is the time when you can be daring, and be audacious.
Your friends won’t judge you.
Step out of your comfort zone and dare to try new looks!
Dinner with your girlfriends is the perfect opportunity to wear your strongest pieces, you know those trendy pieces you bought on a whim two months ago and have been contemplating on their hangers ever since, wondering when you’ll get the chance to wear them!
Well, that’s now!
If you don’t wear your “fashion” pieces for a night out with your girlfriends, you’ll never wear them!
Ideally, choose one of your strongest pieces and build your outfit around it by combining basics from your wardrobe.
Dressing up for a dinner with friends: the glam’ rock look
That s one of the style you can go for this so special event
It’s time to bring out the sequins, leopard prints, leather, lace (but in small drops and not all together!). It’s not a night out at a club … nor a night with Elton John!
Some ideas for glam’rock look :
black skinny + silk camisole/ Caraco + black blazer + black patent pumps
boyfriend jeans + thin sweater with big V-neck on your back + pumps
black skinny + lace body + black silk shirt + big synthetic fur jacket + pumps
black skinny + cream silk camisole / Caraco + leather perfecto + rock booties
leather skinny pants + silk shirt + pumps
chic jogger pant + silk top + stilettos + leather perfecto
leather mini skirt + loose white t-shirt + silk jacket with rolled up sleeves + rock booties

high-waisted pencil skirt + crop top t-shirt + leather perfecto + pumps
black pencil skirt + large V-neck sweater + pumps

If your there s not many on the balcony (< C cup), you can also decide to wear your blazer without a top underneath, with just a nice lace triangle Bra that you can hardly see, thin chains of different lengths, your black pants and derbies.
Wear your favorite jewelry:
If you wear loose (boyfriend jeans) or “heavy” (leather perfecto) pieces, go for fine jewelry: multiple fine bracelets or metal chains of different lengths around the neck with or without pendants, fine rings etc…
But if hen you wear fine jewelry, be sure to wear several, otherwise they will be unoticables …
With fine jewelry, you can mix styles: ethnic, vintage, rock …
You can also dare a pretty metal or leather cuff (Hermes dog collar cuff style).
Make yourself a beautiful smoky-eye in grey tones and dare your VERY RED lipstick!
What about the handbag?
Opt for a mini handbag with a metal chain shoulder strap.

Dressing up for a dinner with your girlfriends: the dressy look
Depending on where you’re going with your girlfriends, you may have to go for a more elegant look.
Avoid being trapped in the too classic or conventional look, it’s still a night out with your sweetheart girlfriends!
You can try to go for an asserted look by choosing a simple and basic from your wardrobe that you can accessorize
Or you can opt for a strong piece (printed pants or printed blazer for example) that you can tone down by associating it with basics.
To give your outfit a boost and give youth back to it, go for rather imposing jewels: plastron necklace, cuff, chandelier earrings, cocktail ring…
But be careful not to multiply the jewels in the same area to avoid bluring your style path.
The combination that is aimed at the podium :
- plastron necklace + cocktail ring (if you absolutely insist on earrings, wear small discreet chips),
- large earrings + cuff
