When you’ve found your perfect party dress, it’s time to think about your party shoes. Or, if you’re like some of the girls in the Simply Be office, you’ll find your fabulous shoes first and then find a dress to match!
Metallics and diamantes are the glamorous choice for a glittering Christmas bash. A red dress looks fab (and very festive) with gold while cooler colours like blue or purple look gorgeous with silver. Black will go with either of course – so think about what colour jewellery you’ll be wearing and make sure you match up.
Delicate heels look ever so dainty but they are definitely trickier to walk in. If you plan on dancing the night away (and perhaps indulging in a tipple or two) a chunkier heel or a wedge heel will be both easier to walk in and comfier too. Shoe boots and styles with a strap around the ankle will provide extra security.
Whether you’re planning to colour match or colour clash with your outfit, bold and bright shoes scream ‘look at me!’ Bright shoes are also the perfect way to lift an all-black outfit.
After the Party…
If you have been dancing all night, don’t be left suffering at home time. Pop a pair of these fab folding shoes in your handbag and then slip them on at the end of the night. Not only will your feet love you for it, you’ll still look gorgeous – and your girlfriends will be soo jealous!
If you’re lucky enough to get a face-to-face interview with a modelling agency or client firstly – well done! You’ve done fantastically to get that far in such a competitive industry. But for such an important meeting the big question is – what on earth do you wear? Follow our tips and we’ll help you to get it right.
Although you’re out to impress and you obviously want to show your fashion credentials, an interview is not the time to be showcasing the statement pieces from your wardrobe. Your interviewer will be trying to imagine how you will look in their collection so it’s better to keep it really simple – neat and contemporary, but fairly plain. Casting agents will want to see your figure so go for form-fitting clothing. Skinny jeans and a close-fitting vest or T-shirt is perfect.
Depending on the nature of the casting, you may be asked to walk for the client. This means you need to be able to show that you can walk in heels, so they’re the natural footwear choice. They’ll also make you look taller and more confident for that initial first impression. Plain black or nude court shoes are perfect.
You may be asked to try on any kind of garment, so make sure your underwear doesn’t let you down. A smooth nude bra and matching briefs are essential. We’d recommend wearing or taking with you a strapless or multiway bra so that you’re ready for any kind of outfit. Make sure you’re wearing the right size so that your bust is well supported and you have a lovely silhouette.
Hair & Make Up
Much along the same lines as your clothing, you need to keep your hair and make-up simple. A casting agent will want to look at you as a blank canvas for whatever style they have in mind. Keep make up natural looking and not too heavy on the foundation so that they can see how good your skin is. Wear your hair down or scraped back neatly.
So there are our tips! It’s not about wowing them with what you wear – it’s about wowing them with your personality and modelling skills, so let that shine through.
