10 Ways To Glamorize Your Wardrobe

Want a little flash in your eveningwear?

Being glamorous is not something that can be taught. It’s a quality that just is. It’s that person everybody knows; guys want to be near her and girls want to be her. It’s that certain joie de vivre that can’t be copied, only admired.

That’s the bad news (unless you are that person, in which case, well done). The good news for the rest of us is that while we may not be able to exude that same confident swagger, we can at least dress the part, which may well be where it all begins.

Here is a list of the 10 most chic and glamorous evening pieces you should definitely be adding to your wardrobe. It may take some time, but with a little glamour infusion, you’ll be well on your way to looking the part.

Long Satin Gloves

We have officially seen the return of true old Hollywood glamour to the runways. When thinking of the sirens from the past, two things come to mind: big hair and elbow length satin gloves. Pair them with a sleeveless, slinky little black dress (LBD) and channel your inner Marilyn Monroe.

Jewel Clutch

Evenings out require a purse of some kind, but when dress codes apply, there’s one style in particular every girl must own: the clutch. It may require a little more care, as it’s quite easy to misplace, but in the beautiful bright jewel tones of the moment, it shouldn’t be too hard to keep track of.


Sequins are the statement of the moment, especially in eveningwear, so whether it’s a dress or a shoe strap, make this statement part of your style vocabulary.

Leopard Print Dress

Meow! Almost nothing is hotter or more attention grabbing than a long, silky, skin-tight leopard print gown. It’s always been the rule of thumb for women to stick with black for evening, but now more than ever, this is becoming taboo. Glamour is about standing out and making a splash, and nothing will help you in your quest more than making an entrance to your next party in this wild print.

Feathered Evening Bag

If you’re like me, keeping track of your own head might be hard if it weren’t permanently attached, so an evening bag might make more sense than a clutch for your evening travails. Feathers, like sequins, are popping up everywhere and on everything, and they happen to be the perfect accessory in bags.

Gold Trousers

Gold is the new black and with the rise of androgyny in women’s clothing, it’s becoming more and more likely women will arrive in a finely tailored tuxedo pant and jacket rather than a fussy dress. Gold trousers might be the perfect choice for that next big event and perhaps more comfortable too.

Gold Strappy Stilettos

On the other hand, you may have to sacrifice the comfort of your feet – we can’t have it all. Nothing beats a great stiletto, especially one with substance that makes everyone say, “Wow.” Shoes have always been the easiest way for women to make a statement and since we’ve already established that gold is in, I suggest finding a pair to go with that LBD hanging in your closet just waiting to make an appearance.

Little Red Dress

Forget I wrote LBD in that last sentence, because black, while extremely chic, is also extremely safe, so let’s move on to something guaranteed to bring glamour back. The little red dress is the new LBD and is definitely not for the faint of heart. Enough said.

Fur Stole

Cold weather can definitely put a damper on a woman’s right to look chic and glamorous…but it doesn’t have to. While you may feel silly donning a full fur coat, as I would, wearing a stole over your shoulders might be a tad more doable. Capelets are back in a big way and with an added touch of fur, you’ll be transported back to the days of yore.

Costume Jewellery

It may not be real and it may not be worth a lot, but costume jewellery is definitely where the glamour’s at. Go for big, bold pieces with lots of jewels and, as they say these days, bling.

Being glamorous is about having lots of panache and a strong sense of style. You have to work it and work it
hard, which means not caring what everyone else in the room is doing or wearing. It’s about what makes you feel comfortable and happy. If being an individual is important to you, than being glamorous may already be part of who you are. Be adventurous and try some of these looks for your next evening out. It will probably be a departure from your usual, but you may just find it’s you.Need advice on your style? Post questions on TheSoko.com!
