I’ve always dreamt of the perfect 21st birthday outfit. As somebody who never refuses a bold night-out look, I was ready to go all out. Unfortunately, my 21st came in the midst of the pandemic, so I couldn’t have the glamorous celebration I always anticipated. Of course, I still got dressed up, whatever that meant for pandemic times, but now I always keep an eye out for the outfit that could’ve been.
If you’ve yet to turn 21, though, consider yourself in luck. After years of bookmarking my favorite sparkly minidresses and standout accessories, I’ve gathered a fair understanding of what makes the perfect birthday party outfit. In other words, just consider me your birthday fairy godmother, here to grant you the ultimate 21st birthday ensemble. Whether you plan to have a laid-back celebration or an all-out soirée, I’ve put together looks that capture whatever vibe you may be after.
So without waiting any longer, scroll on for an inside peak at what my imaginary 21st birthday Pinterest board looks like.
