In this guest blog, stylist and Haute Mimi contributing editor Catherine Horgan shares ideas on how to dress for a Spring cocktail party.
It's that time of year, when the weather begins to break and you're ready to whip out your spring dresses. There's something incredibly invigorating about moving your winter garments out of the way to make room for the light + airy! If you haven't partaken in closet purging yet, you should. Talk about spring cleaning for your closet!
When I work with clients, I put together a multitude of outfits worthy of many an occasion, including special events. That special event may be as simple as a spring cocktail party. Minis are everywhere this spring, and sequins continues to play a part in our wardrobes, so why not combine the two in a flirty little dress!
Go for fabulous shoes, like these grain-effect leather sandals from one of my favorite designers, Oscar de la Renta. Pick up the bold color from the shoes and mimic it in your clutch, like Alexander McQueen's Squeeze It leather clutch (available at the Outnet). As for jewelry, I love these simple nugaard long rolo and links earrings (from Piperlime), big bangle bracelets and this alluring gemstone and onyx ring. Chic, fun and fabulous!
