What To Wear To Your Class Reunion

Hello She She Me! I need some help finding a 10 year class reunion outfit! It is going to be held at a casual bar so I am looking for something along the lines of designer jeans and a great top. Can't wait to hear your ideas!

Well darling girl, you are definitely in luck with all the fab fashions out there! First of all, be sure to check out Shop Girl's advice on what denim selection is best for your body type. That will make all the difference in the world. You could be wearing a $250 pair of designer jeans, but if they are wrong for your body you may as well be wearing a $25 pair from Target that actually fits and flatters! If you are going to spend serious cash on designer duds, make sure they are right for your silhouette.

Your 10 year reunion is all about Who Still Looks Great. And not to be snarky (as if I ever would be!) it is intensely gratifying when She Who Was Voted Most Popular and She Who Was Voted Miss Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Bod show up looking like the Anna Nicole Smith and Kirstie Alley BEFORE! Unless, of course, YOU were the one voted Miss Whatever, then you just want to show them that you've still got it baby!

A classic pair of chic bootcut jeans is the most flattering fit for just about every body type. This season it is all about sleek style, so give the embellishment a pass. Also, I would go with a darker wash, or even black, which is a little more dressy (as well as more slimming!)

If you have really great shoulders and arms, this is the perfect time to flaunt them! A chic halter or a sexy sleeveless tunic top will look fantastic, as well as be comfortable in a warm and crowded room. Another great choice is a surplice style top, which flatters the waistline. A classic blazer style jacket worn over the halter is a good way to start off the evening, and it can be draped over your chair once things heat up. A sassy cropped jacket would look fab too!

Glam up your jeans with sexy skyscrapers. Go with a little bling here. Or, if you are into the skinny jeans thing (and have the legs to pull it off) a great pair of heeled boots would look fantastic, as well as elongate your gams. A bit of frosting, a great bag and you are good to go!

You are so right about the ten year reunion attitude! I was amazed at what lengths girls will go to when trying to one-up eachother! My ten year reunion was like an advertisement for oversized engagement rings (most of which were cubic zirconia) and super-sized boob jobs. (As if anyone would believe that rack was the result of breastfeeding twins!) I have to admit it was great fun showing up in a very elegant and understated Nicole Miller LBD and Christian Louboutin killer heels (the REAL thing girls!)and it didn't hurt that my date was a total hottie either! The best part, however, was seeing the former head songleader and self proclaimed "It" girl of our high school, who wouldn't give me the time of day when we were growing up. She of the perfect teeth and tan, now with bleach blonde big hair, tacky sprayed on dress, 40 lbs overweight and still acting like she was Queen Bee. When she found out that I work in PR and live in NYC she suddenly became my very best friend - that is, until I turned to her and said, "I'm so sorry, but I've forgotten your name. What was it again?" Never knew I had it in me to be so catty!
