We definitely love dressing up for special events. Being elegant is a must, and we have to decide what to wear. Trousers or dresses? A long dress or a short one?
The fall-winter collection 2012-2013 surprises us with gorgeous outfits ready to be bought. I had the chance to sneak around Marina Rinaldi‘s collection, the plus-size brand by the Italian fashion group Max Mara. The occasion dresses are beautiful and very sophisticated, since the designer worked accurately on details, which are the elements that can make a difference, believe me.
Let’s start with a black tulle tunic with sequins, combined with a slip dress with side slit. It can be accessorized with stretch satin gloves and/or a plisse satin clutch bag and, why not, feathers. One of the keywords Marina Rinaldi decided to use in this collection is satin, a fabric able to add a special glamorous touch to the whole look.
My favorite is this tunic in double georgette with butterfly sleeves, paired with trousers in the same fabric. Clutch bag and shoes or sandals must be in the same color, and possibly contrasting the dress.
You should dare to wear a dress and tunic in tulle with beads embroidery. Add a silk georgette flower on the tunic at the height of the shoulder, and you will be the queen of the night.
Complete the look with a pretty up-do hairstyle and a tiny necklace. This is the best way you can dress up for a VIP-only party!
