With less than a month left until our Victoria Fashion Week launch event, time is running out to plan for the big night. Maybe you're like me and you leave everything until the last minute (oops!), but if you like to plan things in advance, here's a checklist of our absolute-must-have's for your outfit, to help you stand out from the crowd in all the right ways.
1. THE SHOES:
Start from the ground up – choose shoes that are stylish, without sacrificing comfort. Don't wear heels too high, you'll need shoes that will carry you through the night from start to finish. Try some fringed or studded booties to add an unexpected edge to your outfit!

2. THE DRESS:
We love the look of a flirty, feminine dress paired with a slightly tougher pair of shoes. Make a statement with the contrast of hard vs soft, and transition seamlessly from watching the runway to grabbing drinks with your friends afterwards.

3. THE JEWELLERY:
Keep it simple with dainty layered pieces that compliment your outfit, without taking away from it. The smaller your pieces, the more you can get away with wearing all at once, giving you the opportunity to mix and match more styles to make your outfit pop.

4. THE MAKEUP:
Go for understated makeup that will last throughout the night and let your outfit do all the talking. Dewy skin, neutral lips, a soft eye, and a bold brow are all that you need for a fresh, youthful look that will pair perfectly with your outfit.

I woke up like this 🙆🏻. ☀️ @urbandecaycosmetics Fireball highlighter, walk of shame nude liner, perversion mascara, and ex-girlfriend lipstick #udcastgetaway #sephoravictoria #sephora546 #urbandecay #motd #sunkissed #summerglow #highlight #abh #anastasiabeverlyhills #slavestobeauty #wakeupandmakeup #makeupfanatic1 #victoriamua #victoriabc #yyjmua #mua #undiscovered_muas
5. THE HAIR:
Get the best of both worlds, with a half up/half down hairdo. Play around with braids, textures, or decorative bobby pins to add extra interest to your locks. And the best part is, this type of style works for almost any hair length!
