21st Birthday Outfit Help! - June 28th 2013, 10:56 AM

Hey guys

It is my 21st in just over a month and we have planned for a meal with my boyfriend and my family. We are going to quite a nice restaurant but it's nothing too posh. Everyone is getting dressed up nice though.

I have been stuck in a rut with clothes recently and I am always pretty safe with dresses so I want something a bit different so I have decided I would like a maxi dress/ skirt or a dipped hem dress/ skirt since I don't own either of these at the moment.
When it comes to maxi dresses/skirts I am 5ft 8 so I sometimes struggle to find them long enough to wear with heels.

So far I have found a few different options and I would just like some opinions on what people like and ideas of what would go well with the skirts.

DRESSES:

Thanks in advance guys

I'm about the same height as you and also struggle with maxi dresses. They always fall at that awkward "just a touch above my ankles so you look kind of Amish" length.

I think the pink topshop skirt and the forever21 surplice back dress are my favorites of the two look. I'm leaning more towards the dress since it seems a little more dressy, but also fun (you're turning 21 woohoo!) and sexy. I actually liked the newlook coral skirt, but it seemed way more everyday to me rather than "I'm going out and celebrating!" I'm iffy on the newlook turquoise dress, but I wouldn't necessarily rule it out. I didn't like the newlook mint dress; something about it seemed a little awkward to me. I'm not a fan of the lace sleeves.

Good luck, and happy early birthday!


when you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.

Yeah the forever 21 dress and Topshop skirt were my first two choices.

I am waiting for the Forever 21 dress to come into stock in my size online or when I get a chance to head to Manchester to try and look in the shop.

The topshop skirt I have tried on in store and I liked it but I have no idea what top I would wear with it since the website have a weird blue jumper combo going on.

This is another dress I have found and quite like. I am going to order it to see what it is like in real life an what it fits like.

I am also going to keep an eye on the forever 21 dress and hope it comes back in stock in my size.

Thanks.
