Collecting outfit images is one of my go-to tasks when I'm on the verge of boredom and need some action to pass the time. The majority of my recently pinned looks were saved in the event that, someday, wearing high heels and fancy dresses would become a thing again, and finally, that time has come. Now that summer soirées and casual outdoor hangouts are starting to pick up, I'm referring back to my treasure trove of outfit inspiration, singling out the party looks that really serve up some flair.
As you can imagine, I'm eager to jump into my collection of dresses and high heels, so many of the looks I'm showcasing utilize the best of both worlds. But of course, not every event calls for a formal dress code. One of the best parts of summer is the spontaneous, low-key get-togethers when it's just friends and a smorgasbord of snacks. For those events, I have the perfect 'fits in mind, too. Read ahead to check out all of the reemergence party outfits I'm itching to wear right now.
While the winter is all about embracing rich, heavy fabrics, the summer is when it's time to lighten things up. Take this sheer maxi dress from the beloved It-girl brand Réalisation. Gold-toned accessories add an extra fancy touch.
Floral prints define the season, but look for florals with an extra dimension like glitter or shimmer to really stand out. While Mirae's dress is nearly sold out, we love Rococo Sand's version with a high slit and plunging neckline for a similar take.
Outdoor drinks with the girls call for an easy, low-key dress you won't have to fuss with for the rest of the night. Style tip: add some fun, colorful heeled sandals for extra punch.
Two-piece sets are a party-outfit savior. They look super put-together, and the styling is basically done for you. Next, it's all a matter of sourcing coordinating accessories.
