The hostess of a party should have the perfect balance of the most comfortable and the most stylish outfit. Your glorious toastmistress should be able to climb a ladder, grab a napkin from the ground, shimmy in and out of the house with ease and poise AND look good doing it. Think this is possible? Absolutely.
Here are some well-balanced, un-boring, super comfy, party-going options:
A kaftan is roomy, comfy and very stylish. Pair with a high heel or don’t. It’s more modern to wear with a slipper or loafer, but a heel dresses it up. Be sure they are new or polished. A ratty old version could really bring down the look. I really like an ethnic tone, but modern is fun, too.
I love a simple look but be sure to make these simple pieces extraordinary. For instance, the t-shirt should be extra special and pair it with a great pop of color ballet flat. Jeans should be new, crisp and very well-fitting!
Obviously, the pajama look is perfect to host a party but it has to be lux. The fit is most important. Take your outfit to a tailor to make sure the hem is great and there is little to no extra room to avoid “sloppy”. Your hairstyle is important: you should have a great sleek coif (super straight hair or pulled into a tight bun) or lots of curls and volume.
