Not sure what to wear to a birthday party? Here’s what may help you!

We bring you a list that help you while you ponder over what to wear;


We all love parties to some extent. But if it is about a birthday party, it gets more interesting. However, no matter how much we like to party, we all get stuck when it comes to choose an appropriate outfit.

Nowadays, no one is contented with just one simple birthday party and this has given a rise to pre and post-birthday celebrations; which means more confusion over selecting an outfit and that too more often! Mostly, choosing an outfit is not much troublesome for boys/men, but girls/women may take hours to do so.

Here you’ll find all the basic info that you need to get ready for a birthday party.

  • Always dress according to the location and time of the party

If it is a day-time party in a café, a restaurant or a park, going comfortable and casual (but not too casual) always saves the day. Women can opt for a casual kurti paired with a pair of plain or patterned tights while men can opt for casual or ultra-casual outfits like a polo shirt with jeans. A jeans and a tee works great for both men and women.

If the party is at night in a hall or a restaurant, you should go a little dressier. Women may wear a semi-formal evening gown, a fancy kurti or a suit complimented with any semi-formal footwear like kitten heels or mules.  Men may opt for business casual attire. A shirt layered with a blazer, combined with a pair of trousers or jeans never goes wrong for men. Loafers or monk shoes look great on men in such birthday parties.

  • Keep in mind your personal dressing style

If you’re a girl/woman that wears hijab, carry it in a party-friendly way. If it is a casual birthday party, feel comfortable and opt for your regular hijab style, just the way you find it easy. But if it is a night time ornate party, carry a fancy hijab that compliments your dress.

  • Carry event-appropriate accessories

When it is about birthday parties, it is best to keep your accessories minimal. Whether it is a day time event or a night time party, a pair of ear studs, a delicate pendant, a simple bracelet or watch is always a go to for girls and this combination can actually look great with any outfit. Just make sure to keep your accessories complimentary with your outfit.

  • Smell good

Choose a nice fragrance according to the time of the party. Soft floral or citrus scents that are not too strong work great for women during day time while fruity and oceanic scents are perfect for night time parties.

Men should choose something mild yet woody or green for day parties while for night time parties, nothing beats oriental and musky fragrances.
