Inside: 29 bash styles for your 19th birthday outfits.

Birthdays are the day we all look forward to the most… every year. Not only our own but our friends as well, to be able to celebrate the people we love and have an excuse to party.

And the best part of any birthday is getting to dress as the center of attention because well… you are.

You are the center of attention today, this week, or this month depending on how you celebrate.

And while you’re blowing out candles and dancing and having fun with your besties, all eyes and cameras are on you. So be photo ready in the best birthday outfit possible.

19th birthday outfits that sparkle

Your 19th is a big birthday, it’s truly an adult birthday but the last of your teen years. There’s a lot to commemorate at this year’s celebration.

So put on your best party dress and get partying!

What Are Some Birthday Photoshoot Ideas?

In the age of social media and posting all of our best photos to the internet, sometimes we have to set up a whole photoshoot to get that best photo!

It’s so popular these days to have a photoshoot centered around your birthday, specifically for Instagram, but it’s such a fun idea and a cool way to start celebrating early and make sure all of your followers KNOW it’s your birthday as soon as you blow up their feed with your birthday photos!

So the typical birthday photoshoot ideas are more like balloons– even some that say 19?!, glitter, confetti, cake, and a super extra dress. All of these are great, but are they YOU?

Your birthday should be all about you and all the fun you’re going to have on your big day, but if you’re having photos done you also want to make sure they represent your personality accurately!

If confetti and glitter aren’t really your thing, what is?

Are you more of a sporty girl? Bleacher shots with #19 face stickers could be dope.

Sassy? Check out some leopard print outfit ideas here!

More boho? An outdoorsy shoot with an ethereal gown, white 19 balloons, and pampas grass would be stunning.
There are ways to make a shoot more like you but just as extra if glitz and glam aren’t your vibe– and I know that’s what all the inspo pics are showing you online. So get creative and make it your own!

What Should You Wear For Your Own Party?

Again, your birthday and all the birthday attention should reflect you and your style! If it’s your style not to go anywhere near a dress, wear what you’re most comfortable in! You don’t have to wear a cocktail dress just because it’s your birthday!

But you can if you want to… because it’s your birthday.

So wear what feels like you and then do a little more.

Because it’s your birthday! If it’s not your style to wear makeup and do your hair, then don’t, but if that is your style then go ALL out!

Enjoy the spotlight and the glamor, it’s so fun and it’s the one day a year that is truly all about you. So party dresses are fun, but what’s trendy and cool at 19? What should you wear for your 19th birthday? Something that sparkles or shines! Satin is huge right now, as are sequins. Be flashy, be fun, and be ready for the cameras to be snappin’ pics left and right!

It’s all about you tonight.

How Should I Dress When Turning19?

Nineteen is such a fun age, as you’re in your adult years now but still in your teens. You have the best of both worlds this year!

You can enjoy this year, being young but learning who you are and finding your own independence. What a time.

Your 19th birthday outfits can totally reflect that– you don’t have to jump straight into “adult” vibe clothing, but you also can start to transition out of teenage style if you want. You can keep it fun and classy, just by curating your own style. When you discover your own style and what looks good on you as well as what makes you feel good, you already look a little more mature in whatever you wear.

So start to find what your personal style is and what makes you feel like yourself! You will truly start to see a shift in what you decide to wear on the daily.
