It’s now Friday, and many people around San Jose will be going out to celebrate the end of their work week. Whether residents are going to dinner, clubs or parties, there is a perfect night-out-on-the-town outfit for such occasions.
So what exactly is the perfect outfit?
Instead of trying on several styles of dresses, one in particular works for many shapes and sizes. The A-line dress is a great choice to wear for a night out because of its versatility.
When shopping for an A-line dress, look for dresses with a synched waist, and its bottom half flowing away from the hips. What makes the dress so versatile for different shapes is it accentuates a waist whether shoppers have one or not, as well as flows away from the hips, making the waist look smaller.
If shoppers are self-conscious about their lower half of the body, the dress covers the hips, and puts more emphasis on the waist.
The A-line dress is a popular style in stores, so finding the perfect A-line dress for the night out shouldn’t be hard. H&M sells a wide selection of dresses, including great dresses with details of ruffles and pleating, great for an evening on the town. Dresses there range from $50 to $60, and several for as low as $35.
Crossroads Trading Company has a wide variety of gently used pieces for reasonable prices, including dresses from a number of designers. It has two locations in San Jose, including the Blossom Hill and West San Carlos locations.
Sometimes shoppers may find a great dress, but it needs an added touch to make it a night time dress. To make it a dress for a night out, add bold accessories, such as a wide bracelet or a shimmery clutch.
If the dress needs an added flair, add a belt to the dress, adding character to the outfit, but also accentuating the waist even more.
Shoppers can find clutches at Marshalls or TJMaxx, with some clutches selling from $8 to $15. Try stores such as Forever 21 to find fashion jewelry for cheap. There, bracelets can range from $5 to $10 and belts from $3 to $8.
Dressing up doesn’t have to cost a lot, and finding pieces for cheap makes the evening that much better.
