The Perfect Outfit for any Occasion
Not too long ago, we gave you advice on how to find the perfect lipstick for any occasion. As we put it, your lipstick is the icing on the cake - the final piece of your outfit that brings it all together.
But, what about the actual cake? All the outfit that goes on before the lipstick? You can't exactly show up to a friend's party wearing your birthday suit, even if have the perfect lipstick on (Note: exception to this is the nudist party). So we have a few perfect outfits for any occasion to take the guess work out of it!
Wear: A colourful or patterned sweater/bottom (or if you're brave enough, both!) to show off personality with a basic button down underneath. Pair with comfortable shoes and a practical bag.
1. Madewell Anchors & Dots Sweater (US$79.50)
2. The Cambridge Satchel Comany The Classic (UK$94.00)
3. Express Ultimate Double Weave Editor Ankle Pant (C$69.90)
Wear: Go for comfortable but put together. Never over done, over the top, or brash; just simple, subtle and feminine.
1. Forever 21 Spotted A-Line Dress w/ Belt (C$29.80)
2. GoJane Open Toe Wedges (US$ 30.00)
Lounging At Home

2. Zara Black and White Combination Heels (C$79.90)
Running Errands and Shopping

4. J. Crew Tortoise and Brass Link Necklace (C$134.00)
Girl's Night Out
Wear: Go all out with trendy pieces. Don't shy away from sheers, cut outs or leather panels. Don't be afraid to add some sparkle to your shoes, bag or of course, your arm party.
