If you are looking for versatility and pizazz, look to evening separates. They offer a fashion value, with the bonus of letting you change your look for multiple social events.
Anchoring your outfit with a black skirt or pants can help you feel confident that you will be dressed just right for every event. You can go from classic and understated by selecting a shimmery white blouse or beige silk shell to wowing the crowd with a glimmering beaded jacket worn with the same black skirt. On the other hand, you can wear the beaded jacket with a pair of jeans and high-heeled boots for yet another look. The combinations are endless when you use evening separates wisely.
When you dress up for an evening occasion, you want to look your best and wearing the right fit will help you relax and enjoy the event. This is another reason to choose separates: many women have different top and bottom sizes. Separates allow you to look your best by getting the best fit on both parts of your body.
Build a Wardrobe Around Separates
Wardrobe consultants often advise that mixing separates make it appear that you have more clothes than you do. For wardrobe building with flexibility, consider the whole picture. How many social events do you attend? Do they tend to be very formal? What do you feel most comfortable wearing? What is in your closet that you can pair with a new top or bottom? Start with a couple of versatile bottom pieces that will work with a variety of jackets and blouses. Add color and shine with tops, as well as with accessories.
