I’m closing out the month of May with a show-stopping birthday style inspiration.
Reader Nicole hit up the FBD squad with a special What To Wear request. She writes, “Dear Fashion Bomb Team, my friend needs your help! She’s planning an Arabian Nights themed 30th birthday and needs a look that fits her theme without look too costume-like, please help! Thanks! And we love the site!!!”
Thanks! This sounds like quite the event. You only turn the big 3-0 once, so you’ve got to do it big! There’ll be lots of shimmer and shine for your big day, so prepare for a night of opulent and bedazzled attire.
Add a punch of color with a coral lip and matching mani. Work in a few metallic accents with gold dangle earrings and a shimmery bronze lid.
Dress up a long punchy kaftan with a stunning statement necklace, bold beaded bangles, and a pair of sparkly beaded dangle earrings. Anchor this exotic look with a pair of red lace-up sandals and a beaded fold over clutch.
Slip into a printed bodycon number uplifted by a pair of sleek and sassy sandals and a crystal encrusted box clutch.
Drive the theme home with a gold headpiece, mini tassel earrings, and a statement cuff. Opt for a jewel tone mani and a set of plush lashes to complete your makeup look.
What say you? Are these vivid looks hit or miss for your bestie’s birthday extravaganza?
