Fun ideas for big party style

21st Birthday Outfits

If a dress isn’t your move, there are so many options in any style you choose that don’t incorporate a skirt. Or maybe you want to go for a two-outfit kind of night: dressing down for dinner and dressing up for drinks. Or maybe you’re simply heading to brunch. Either way, you can fit the occasion and still pop off in something other than a dress. 

Dressing up a pair of jeans is hot, and a jumpsuit is hotter. Sometimes it’s more fun to get creative with choosing your outfit than to call it done with a dress. Mixing and matching, or finding the perfect matching set are both fun options as well. So let’s check out some fun ideas for you to make some pairings for your big night.

  2. Feather Sleeves
  3. Pattern Pieces
  4. Flashy Fringe
  5. Color Blocking
  6. Sparkle Jumper
  7. Green Silk Suit
  8. Color Pop Shoes

If you haven’t found what you’re looking for yet and you need something more catered to the curvy girl fashion realm, I got you.

I’ve got some more dresses, jumpsuits, and outfits that keep away from anything you might be avoiding. Here’s your curvy 21st Birthday Outfit inspirations!

Birthday outfits are the bomb, and should make you feel like a million bucks, the center of attention, and a rockstar, all at the same time. Finding your personal style and spicing it up from there is the best route to take when planning a birthday outfit, or even a weeks’ worth of birthday outfits. Time to stand out, time to live it up, and time to celebrate.

As you plan your 21st birthday outfits, don’t forget that the day, night, week, or month is all about you, and your outfit should say it too!
