From the big 2-1
turn up to a Sweet 16 bash, I’m finishing this week’s style inspiration
with another What to Wear birthday request.
Alta writes, “I will be attending a sweet sixteen in NYC in a week. I am 25 years old. What can I wear?”
While a sweet sixteen celebration often times
calls for ornate prom-esque gowns and frilly frocks, being fashionable
and age-appropriate is best achieved with classic ensembles paired with
a fun and flirty twist. Update a traditional party dress with
an eye-catching bauble or a splash of color for a look that
reads dashing and chic and not teenybopper.
An edgy black and white leather top party dress makes for the perfect option for an evening of celebration.
Pull the look together with a stylish coat, a sexy pair of heels, Lucite box clutch, and a sultry red lip.
For look #2, slip into a shimmering sequin party dress subdued by a pair of black ankle strap sandals.
Complete this sequin number with an evening clutch, sparkly stud earrings, and a brooding makeup palette.
Liven up a black one shoulder ruffle dress with a vibrant floral print coat, a croc effect leather clutch, and a sassy pair of magenta Hoxton heeled sandals.
A matching magenta lip and gold tassel drop earrings cap off this floral infused ensemble.
And if the event calls for a less formal approach, opt for a stylish pair of emerald green jacquard print trousers embellished by a black peplum top and a structured blazer.
Mix in a patent leather pump, a black box
clutch, and a touch of sparkle with a pair of Baublebar Mohawk fringe
earrings. Perfect your pout with a soft pink lipstick and a matching
smoky lid for the finishing touch.
Have a fabulous time at the Sweet Sixteen soiree! Which look will you recreate?
