Michele says, “Please Claire help me! My 10 Year class reunion will be coming up in August and I can’t decide what to where. It is a 3 day event but I am mainly concerned about the banquet. I want to look very well put together and HOT! I am usually a take it safe kind of girl so I want to step outside the box and turn heads! (but in a good way) I am not afraid of colors and I would love something that showed off my figure. Thanks in advance for your help!”
Ah Michele. You sound like my kind of gal. Not one to sidle to the safe (and predictable) LBD, you want to shine and stand apart from the crowd. The rules are: Don’t look like you’re trying too hard in a frothy confection more suited for a black tie gala (or a too tight dress more appropriate for the club!). Do wear something flattering in a color that pops, played up by statement accessories.
The first option is for the slightly saucy, who wants to look pretty yet not ruffle too many feathers. The key pieces: A Catherine Malandrino Draped silk-jersey wrap-effect dress, Christian Louboutin New Declic woodstock pumps, and a vintage Chanel purse. Option 2 is for someone slightly more adventurous:
The standout pieces are the lime green Roksanda Ilincic Olya twisted wool-crepe dress and Yves Saint Laurent Large Belle De Jour Clutch in Acid. I can almost guarantee that noone else will be rocking with the lime green. If you can pull it off, rock it!
