What to Wear to Your Own Birthday Party

Correct us if we're wrong, but deciding what to wear to a birthday party is kind of a big deal, particularly when it's your own. All of your favourite people will be there, and everyone will want a picture with the birthday girl, which will likely be posted to Instagram for all the world (okay, your inner social circle) to see. But most importantly, it's your party, and you'll dress wonderfully if you want to.

We suggest using your birthday party as an excuse to treat yourself to a new outfit—of course we do! There's no need to spend a lot of money, but a new garment will only add to your excitement and the celebratory nature of the big event. Additionally, if it's something you'll wear again (hello black party dress), consider it an investment.

To get you started, we found seven outfit ideas that are perfect for your special day, from statement boots and dressy tops to flats you can dance all night in. You'll stand out in the best way possible, and be comfortable enough to mingle and enjoy yourself in any of these.
