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!
