Cocktail attire with a Western flair is another creative dress code that will be interpreted in many different ways. You will see everything. Since this cocktail party is being held in an art museum an outfit in good taste with a creative Western bent is in order. Start by choosing one of your favorite classic outfits like an LBD, pants or skirt and / or top that flatters your figure type. Then add one or two items considered Western and worn by cowgirls. Cowboy hats, Western style shirts with yokes and snap closings, leather vests, cowboy boots, fringe and jeans are all considered Western. If you want to wear jeans they should be dark and well fitting. An accessory such as a Western belt, or a purse or shoes with fringe will add a Western flair to your outfit and cow girls love turquoise and or silver jewelry. Of course you can always make a statement by going all out with a lot of different Western clothing worn together.
It is almost always exciting and fun when a party invitation arrives. However sooner or later we have to start to think about what we will wear. When types of “dress codes” are indicated such as “Smart Casual”, “Cocktail Party attire,” “Tailgate Party”, “Festive”, “Cocktail Chic” or etc. it can throw us for a loop. Where should one begin to figure out what any of these types of dress codes mean?
Jewelry That Makes A Statement
Jewelry that makes a statement sends a message about who you are and what you value, conveys confidence and can make an outfit chic. I think what you notice first about someone is their personal statement. A piece of jewelry that catches your eye when you see a woman qualifies as a “statement” piece of jewelry. Something that stands out from everything else.
