Being a model I have participated in several fashion shows as well attending them. While not everyone is invited to fashion shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris there are plenty of fashion shows, trunk shows, shopping events, meet and greets, and so much more that you can attend in your city. These events can lead to some serious outfit induced anxiety because you will be surrounded by stylish people.
If you're not comfortable trying out one of the latest trends or wearing something bold, you certainly can wear your favorite all black outfit (that's me) and call it a day. If you do wear black try adding a pop of color, whether in the form of a belt, hat, a handbag or switching up the skirts and the blouses. I encourage you to take a risk with your outfit, this is the time to try the latest looks. The goal is to creat a fashionable outfit that includes one statement piece and one on-trend (very fashionable) accessory.
In the fashion world, layers and accessories are important because they add visual interest to any look, so don't forget to include one or the other (or both). If you're like me I pay attention to my handbag and my shoes. Having the right handbag and shoes can totally transform your look. It can take your outfit from gloom to glam in seconds. After all, while the runways are full of couture and ready-to-wear designs, it's also the attendants who set the latest trends.
The next couple things should definitely be on point is your hair and makeup. Attending a fashion event is a great opportunity to be trendier than usual. Just remember to be sure to pick one major trend to try, you definitely don't want to over do it and stand out more than necessary. At the end of the day Divas, remember it's all about confidence in whatever you choose to wear, so don't forget about yourself and rock your outfit!
