Semi-formal events are really tricky to dress up for. They basically require attires that are dressier than office clothes but not as formal as evening gowns *sigh*.
So, you basically have to borrow elegance from both the formal and casual wears. Semi-formal events include weddings, baptisms, business luncheons, company hangouts etc. Whether you are going for a conference, meeting up with a potential client, a dinner date, business event or a semi-formal party, we’ve got you covered.
How do you dress appropriate for the occasion? You’d certainly not go wrong with these three outfits. Take a look!
Jumpsuits are a trendy and excellent choice for semi-formal functions. While wearing the jumpsuit, be sure to match them with accessories that give them a shine. Jewelry with interesting details, chunky necklace or pendants and earrings work beautifully. Give it a pop of colour with your belt choice then pair with a sling bag and neutral makeup.
Cocktail parties are the most common semi-formal events you’d get invited to. Making the right choice can be tough. Hence, when picking a cocktail dress for a semi-formal occasion, go for styles that are knee-length and show off your arms. Try choosing chic, polished or a playful designed attire. Stick to high heels, either open toes or closed toes. You may use gemstones, pearls and fashionable jewelry to enhance your appearance. Don’t forget to carry a classy clutch.
Blouses and Trousers
Blouses, tops and a pair of trousers may have the feel of an office attire but they aren’t immune to chic upgrade for a social function. A stylish dress trouser with a blouse or blazer is a great look. Depending on how dressy your trouser is, your blouse can be busy. Swap dainty jewelry for something a little bolder like a chunky necklace. Tops or blouses may be tucked in too. A pair of metallic heels is appropriate for this look.
