Style Guide: Birthday Outfits 101


Pin It

Aside from the fact that my birthday is fast approaching, I was actually inspired to put together this post after seeing a thread in the Forum started by member Alexie Kim, called Birthday Outfits. To be honest, what you wear on your birthday really depends on what you’re doing. If it is something casual, obviously dress accordingly. However, if you’re going to be the belle of the ball at a party, I think a chic LBD is the way to go.

I may be biased, but I think the Angelica Dress from the Paper Crown Spring 2012 collection (see above photo) would be perfect for an evening birthday fete. It’s simple and elegant but still fun, flirty and a little bit sexy too. Nevertheless, any LBD will do though!

Give your LBD a birthday twist by layering on a few crystal bib necklaces. It’s okay if they don’t match–just as long as they look good together. Personally, I think the layered look is gorgeous. Plus it adds the perfect touch of festive glamour.

My birthday is right around the corner… My plans are still a bit up in the air, but regardless of what they are, I plan to dress up and enjoy the night! Who knows…you might even see me wearing my LBD.

Needless to say, your birthday is a fabulous excuse to stand out. Since fashion is not for the faint of heart, take a risk and go for all white or wear a bright color that you otherwise would shy away from. Here are a few ideas:
