In case you didn't already know, I have a weak spot for feminine styles and pieces. Take lace and midi skirts, especially blush ones, for example. In addition to being extra feminine, I also like how they add a polished look to an outfit. This look is therefore my choice for a special occasion outfit.

The combination of this burgundy lace top and blush midi skirt wasn't pre-meditated. I just experimented with this pairing and I'd like to think that it worked out beautifully. I love the combination of colors and how the feminine pieces complement each other. But if you are not into the ultra feminine touch that these two pieces bring to an outfit, there are a few other outfit formulas you can try.


Mini or Cocktail Dress + Classic Pair of Heels


A cocktail dress such as an LBD is going to give you that polished look with little effort at styling. Hence, this is the perfect choice for special occasions, especially those events with a semi-formal theme. Toss in a classy pair of nude or black heels into the mix to add more polish to your outfit.


Dressy Maxi + Heeled Sandals

For a special occasion with a more casual theme, you can go for a maxi dress paired with a heeled sandal. This is my go-to option for casual summer weddings, for example. You need to be extra careful when choosing the maxi dress you wear for the event though. Avoid the overly vibrant print like florals and geometric patterns. If possible, choose solid colors and stick to feminine silhouettes. 


Full Length Gown

For a black-tie affair, a full length gown is your best bet. There is nothing better to exemplify a special occasion look than a floor length dress. 

What is your go-to formula for special occasions?
