What To Wear For Your 17th Birthday
It’s time for all eyes to be on you! Don’t trip, we all want attention on our birthday, so the spotlight is naturally yours today! You’re going to have all eyes on you regardless of what you wear. But you want to look 110% for it anyway!
This all depends on the season of year and your personal style.
Party outfits are always so much easier in the summer, because you can make just about anything work! A crop top, a dress, jeans, skirts, boots… The world is your oyster for summer party clothes.
Fall and winter are a little trickier because you have to play with layers to make it all work together and to stay warm. There are still a ton of amazing outfit ideas for fall, you just have to work a little harder to make it perfect.
Personal style plays a factor because the typical birthday girl style is very pretty in pink, girly, and the works. But if that’s not you, replace girly with edgy and pink with black and that’s the perfect birthday style as well. While we’re all celebrating you, you need to be yourself still too!
So play with all the factors and you’ll find the best outfit for your 17th birthday!
Best Shoe Options
Shoes can make or break your evening, for real. Of course we always want to love our outfits all the way down to our shoes! But if you’re not entirely comfortable, it’s going to put a little damper on your party. And you don’t want that.
So your shoes will obviously majorly depend on your outfit you choose, but we can kind of start to look at some different options, pre-outfit.
If you go with a party dress, you’re naturally going to want to think about some heels, but consider something a little more sustainable like wedges or kitten heels as opposed to your prom pumps! You want to enjoy the night without limping by the end of it!
Good news is, it’s still super trendy to rock sneakers with a party dress, jeans, anything you could possibly get to wear for your birthday! So worst case, a brand new pair of platform converse would do just the trick.
If you have a pair of killer heels that don’t kill you, go for it! You will look incredible. But if you’re not sure, don’t risk it, and enjoy the party a couple inches closer to the ground.
Outfit Theme Ideas
Sending out a dress code to your besties may feel a little extreme, but it also makes for fun pictures with the gang! If you have a color scheme you want to go by that matches the party or a specific vibe, as long as it doesn’t require everyone making a trip to the mall or a massive online shopping haul, it’s a fun idea!
Again, this can make for a super fun photo-op, so here are some outfit theme ideas!
Y2K: Dress like the year you were born! This is fun because since it’s so on trend, everyone probably has the outfits for it but add in the hairstyles, extra beaded necklaces, and a prop flip phone, and you’ve got a themed outfit!
Groovy: Give the world your best Mamma Mia moment, dressing like Donna and the Dynamos for your ABBA year! If you’ve already got a pretty hippie style, this is easy. Flares, gogo boots, and anything funky and colorful!
Sunset Colors: If you’re a color loving gal, and if you especially love pink, coordinate with your friends to make the stunning colors of the sunset with your outfits! Orange, yellow, and pink all together make a stunning group of friends!
White Out: Have everyone wear their best all white outfit and have a white out birthday! This is so fun when the decor and party accessories (hats, boas, beaded necklaces) are colored so it all pops with the stunning white dresses and outfits! The photobooth pictures are going to be killer.
It’s time to pull together your ideas for an outfit for your 17th birthday! It’s going to be perfect no matter what you wear, but again, we always are in better moods when we like our outfits!
