Replacements For Party Dresses

From sophisticated formal parties to crowded casual parties, you have got a lot to attend. But no matter what type of party you’re going to, you end up wearing similar party dresses every time. Unquestionably, dresses are an apt pick for any party as they are stylish and comfortable. But wearing them, again and again, can be boring. Isn’t it?

So, if you are looking for some inspiration for your next party look, here are the six easy replacements you can always rely on.

1. Jumpsuit

Being a full top to end outfit, jumpsuits are easy-to-carry and look extremely elegant.

Opt for a basic black jumpsuit to play safe and style it with black heels and a piece of statement jewelry. Carry a red bag to break the monotony of the outfit.

2. Leather trousers

A pair of shiny leather trousers is a statement in itself and can easily get you noticed.

Team up a pair of black shiny leather trousers with a solid maroon crop top. Add black heels and carry a black clutch.

3. Embellished top

Why pick one of your party dresses when you have gleaming ensembles in your closet too?

Choose a sequin cold-shouldered embellished top and pair it with classic black trousers. Balance your outfit by keeping everything else basic. Blank stilettos and a decent clutch will do the work.

4. Playsuit

Playsuits can be super-sexy and classy, both at the same time. Being a top to bottom single outfit is an added advantage, of course!

Pair a classic black playsuit with a golden clutch and golden heels. Add your statement earrings and slay.

5. Culottes

Solid culottes with right pairing can look as good as party dresses (Psst! or even better).

Put together solid pink culottes with a cutesy off-white cropped off-shoulder top and add white block heels and a clutch.

Pair a slightly embellished shirt with a black pencil skirt. Add silver sandals and a black handbag.

I believe that there is absolutely nothing you can’t sport at a party if styled in the right way. So, next time you head out, try something new!
