Here's How Fashion Girls Dress for Birthday Dinners

If there's one occasion we look forward to celebrating with a bang each year, it would have to be our birthday. While planning a birthday celebration can, at times, prove to be a little stressful, it's truly your night to shine—and your outfit should reflect that. When putting together a killer birthday dinner 'fit, there are a few things to consider: First, what overall vibe are you going for—something casual, or a look that's a bit more flashy? Of course, where you choose to wine and dine for the evening is another important factor to bear in mind as you pick through your wardrobe.

Feeling stumped on what to wear to a birthday dinner? We always find it helpful to have some fresh inspiration on hand, so we scoured the 'gram and rounded up 13 birthday looks worthy of copying from some of our favorite fashion girls. Keep scrolling to check them out, and then shop each look for yourself.

A velvet bodysuit is the perfect layering piece for any going-out look.

A fall staple, leather (or faux leather) shorts can easily be dressed up or down.

I'm definitely not mad at the price of these beauties.
