Fear causes confusion over what to wear, according to fashion authority Nina Garcia. She explains that the fear of breaking fashion rules, traditions and a perception of looking unfashionable should be replaced with knowledge of who you are and what looks good on you. This is especially true when you attend a casual party and can not rely on your little black dress or expensive pantsuit to get you through.
Jeans are a standard for many casual party outfits. Take this common look from everyday to party-ready by wearing a dark wash and choose a body-conscious top to go with it. Add a bold necklace or scarf and a pair of stylish shoes, such as peep-toe sandals or boots. A shrunken blazer or classically-styled leather jacket can pull the look together.
Add a touch of sparkle to a casual outfit by choosing a sequinned tank top covered with an unbuttoned cardigan sweater. Pair it with black slacks in either a skinny or wide-legged style. Pull the look together and tone the impact of the tank top down by wrapping a wide belt around the outside of the cardigan. Wear ballet flats to complete this casual party look.
Casual summer parties call for a simple sun dress. You can pair an all-white cotton dress with a full skirt with leather sandals or espadrilles and a flattering casual hat or scarf wrapped around your head. Shirt-dresses in any colour with a wide belt and flats are another casual party outfit idea. Wear an armful of bracelets and a pair of flats.
A casual beach party look starts with your swimming costume. A retro-inspired one or two piece provides adequate coverage while looking stylish. Add a loose cover-up, large sunglasses and flip flop sandals.
A sports-themed gathering is generally a casual affair. Cheer on your team with a black long-sleeved top and black trousers topped with a replica jersey from your favourite team--this keeps the bulky top from overwhelming your look. Alternately, you can wear a monotone outfit and then tie a silk scarf loosely around over neck in the team colours. Sporty flats or mary janes can complete the look.
