For these events you have to bring the tail in cock by bring out your most glamorous LBD or cocktail dress that makes you feel like a super star. The long elegant dresses are not ideal for this event, you have to show off your legs and your heels at this event, so short dresses only.

  1. Office parties


Since your boss is likely to be there, you have to be dress modestly and still have to be professional but stylist. Rather opt for a fitted shift dress that’s is colourful and strappy heels to give your outfit a glamourous feel and not the stiff office look

  1. Dinner parties

  1. Engagement parties


Love is always in the air in December and when our friends throw engagement parties, it is always the perfect opportunity to dress up and look on point. You have to make an effort especially if you know you will want to take photos with the couple. You do not want to look at the photos after a couple of years and cringe and wish you had made a better fashion decision. Opt for something that matches the dress code, if it’s high end like a black tie, make sure you oblige, by dressing up according to the dress code. If there is no dress code, just make sure you look glamorous and camera worth.

  1. Lobola negotiations

With this you have to make sure you dress modestly and a head wrap is a definite must have. A midi dress is ideal, just in case you have to sit on the reed mat, it has to be just below the knees and it should have sleeves.

  1. Meeting the parents


If you have decided to take the relationship to the next level and he has asked you to meet the parents. You have to show up looking on point. No tight clothes because you do not want to make the wrong impression. Rather opt for a skater dress that has round neck that will not show off your cleavage and with sleeves or wear a cardigan. Remember to smile

Go forth and rock your different frocks for different occasions.
