Hello dance, fashionistas!

2024 is dancing into full swing. There is a certain sweet sense of sparkle in the air, and I love translating vibes like these into fashion. As Oscar de la Renta said, “The great thing about fashion is that it always moves forward.” New inspiration is around every corner! It’s a celebration of fashion (and officially my 100th dance and fashion article for Showstopper Magazine).

The theme: celebration. Thing fun, festive fête, and fashionable sparkle. Let’s style a celebration outfit perfect to rock in. Playing dress up never ends. Keep reading to see how I put together a unique OOTD (or should I say Outfit of the Party?), a fun fit to inspire your creative looks for any celebration you have coming up this year.

Dressy and Sparkly

To create my celebration outfit, I started off by choosing a dress I knew would shimmer. Cue Taylor’s Swift’s “Bejeweled.” We’re going for superstar shine. The base of this look is a couture-style floor-length gown in radiant red complete with hundreds of sequins and lined with a rouge-colored trim. Choose a dress you love to spark in! It’s time to take the spotlight.

Hairstyle Glam

Cute curls and flowing waves give my hair volume for this look. Add a little hairspray and let your hair shine! You can also complement your outfit with hair accessories like the bow in this look, a sweetheart chic detail to match a party dress. Let the confetti fall over this look!

Neat Nail Polish

Nail polish is a small detail that can make a look all your own. Vibrant, neutral, pastel, or the color of the season, pick a nail color that makes you delighted! I selected my favorite color for this look, hot pink! Remember that your look is as much a celebration of you as it is a celebration of the event you’re attending.

“Fashion is instant language.”

Strutting in Shoes

What are your favorite party shoes? Let’s add even more sparkle. I love styling these sequin-embellished platform heels for a celebration look. Having fun with fashion is the real beginning of any party. Let’s get ready to dance!

Jazzy Jewelry

Complete your outfit! I accessorized this celebration look with some divine gold drop-length earrings and a sweet friendship bracelet my sister made. I love finding little details to add to my outfit that mean something special to me or remind me of a lovely memory.

“The joy of dressing is an art.”

Colorful Lipstick

After adding some makeup glam with lots of shimmer, I finished off this look with a statement shade. This red is far from unexpected. Taylor Swift’s signature lipstick color, color matching my lipstick to my dress creates a captivating and confident look. Just like dancing to your favorite song, when your outfit comes together and you love it, it just feels right!

Celebrate in style, superstar! Make your wardrobe shine like a diamond by being the star of your celebration. We’re dancing, chasing dreams, and making memories. That means trying new fashions and channeling all things fabulous. It doesn’t have to be a holiday or event. Celebrate a good grade, a perfect performance, or a friend! When there is no occasion, we can always create one.

“Life is a fashion show, the world is your runway.”

Marc Jacobs
