Attending a formal event means getting to dress your best. Whether it’s your homecoming dance, school reunion, or a wedding, the anticipation can also bring a great deal of stress. To help keep things less stressful, here are a few tips to getting ready for your next big event.
First things first, make sure that you prep your skin before the event. For me, this means that I do everything possible to avoid any flare ups on my skin. The most important tip is to sticking to what you know. A few weeks in advance, I try not to use any new products, I cut out greasy food, drinks lots of water, and get plenty of rest. I do the eyebrow plucking, waxing and hair changes 48 hours before the event. Trust me, don’t wait to do all this the day before your big day. Plan out also what kind of hair style and makeup beforehand and style it around the dress you are wearing. This also means getting a trim a few weeks before the big day. This gives you a chance to play around with different looks. Also why not treat yourself and exfoliate from head to toe. Relax and maybe even treat yourself to a mani and pedi. Do whatever it is that relaxes you.
Now on to the outfit. Here are some great staple pieces that can serve for multiple occasions. You want to purchase something that you can wear not only for the one occasion. I love a two piece outfit like the one pictured. you can even mix and match with other pieces in your closet that you already have. It’s so versatile, I can even think of wearing it a few ways for everyday wear. Pair the top with a denim skirt or high waist jeans. Pair the skirt with a graphic tee tucked in or a white blouse.
