Party Perfect in 5 Days
|Day Five: Get Gorgeous|
|| The Details|
|from Cynthia Nellis |
You've bought the dress, found a date, now it's time to add the details that will make your look complete.
|Party Quick Fixes|
|Makeup, scent and hair can make or break your special occasion look. Find out how to add the right touches, even at the last minute. |
|How to Wear Embellishment|
|Even though special occasions are prime for wearing sparkle, you can get too much of a good thing. Learn how to wear embellishment and bling so you look great, not garish. |
|Matching your undergarments to your dress is one of the most crucial fashion details you'll want to work out. Don't be shy about taking your special dress with you when you look for bras, body slimmers, etc. You'll need to make sure that straps, lines and bumps don't show through your dress. |
|Special Occasion Shoes|
|Whether you'll be up all night dancing or just need a shoe you can walk in, footwear is an important piece of the overall look. |
Although legs look better with a bit of a heel, don't opt for sky-high stilettos if you're not used to wearing them: your aching feet will keep you from enjoying your special event!
|Pantyhose or Bare?|
|One of the most frequent fashion questions revolves around women wondering whether or not they can (or should) wear pantyhose with open-toed sandals. While it's not the best look, sometimes it's a necessity. |
Don't forget about fishnet hose as an hip alternative to hose: they come in lots of colors and varying degrees of pattern (the smaller patterns give more coverage).
|Alternatives to Bare Legs|
|If your legs aren't ready to make a party appearance on their own, try fabulous alternatives to bare legs including leg makeup, self-tanners and toeless hose. |
|Formal Hair Styles|
|Once you've found your formal dress, you'll want to pull your look together with a great formal hair style. Find out which looks -- from trendy to classic -- work for special occasion dresses in this photo gallery. |
