1 || Comfort And Glamour
Start from the bottom up, choose your most comfortable yet glamorous shoe. The formality of your outfit is determined by your shoe. Don’t destroy your outfit with a casual shoe, but make sure you are comfortable.
2 || To Sling Or Not To Slingback
Slingback shoes have a really bad habit of catching on your long dress or floor-skimming wide leg pants. The fabric gets stuck between your foot and the sole of the shoe. If you are wearing something long, stick with a closed back shoe.
3 || Less Is More
Layering is fun, just not when you are entertaining. Stick to a single layer when possible, less fuss makes for less mess.
4 || Long Necklaces and Dangly Bracelets
Trendy long necklaces and dangly bracelets will swing from side to side when you bend down to fix anything. They could fall into the food, get stuck in odd places or just make you more nervous.
5 || Wide Sleeves
Have you ever rushed out only to find your wide sleeve stuck in the door handle. Something you really don’t need.
6 || Sweat Proof Your Outfit
Hosting dinner parties remind us of exam time. You know you are prepared but panic anyway. Make your outfit sweat proof with a very dark color or print. Light colors are less forgiving for that inevitable salad dressing splatter.
7 || Wear Your Favorite Underwear
You really don’t need to experiment with sexy underwear. We naturally tug on our underwear when we get nervous, stick with something tried and tested. Have you ever realized how Rafael Nadal fixes his wedgie every time he serves !
8 || Stiletto Or Block Heel?
A block heel will save you the headache of a pointy heel getting caught in something. These sturdy best friends will give you height, added comfort and a little more stability.
