The School Reunion. It’s that one party we all dread and at the same time cannot wait to attend. It only happens once every 5, 10, 20 years. We ponder for weeks and months what to wear. The term “dress to impress” goes though our minds over and over and over again. So what exactly do you wear to your reunion to make that impact- to dress and actually impress? Here are a few ideas that will have you feeling comfortable, confident and chic.
The little black dress is a simple and effortless way to make a statement, while still looking classic and elegant. Pair with bold gold jewelry for a gorgeous modern take on Grecian. For a standout look, wear a dress in a bright eye-catching color. You will be sure to turn heads in a vibrant red, bold blue, or gorgeous green. Choose a length you feel comfortable with and always choose a detail which accentuates your best features. Accessorize with a great pair of strappy heels or sky high wedges, keep your jewelry clean and simple, and add wrap, cropped jacket or blazer for chilly evenings.
A pencil skirt is another great – but unexpected – reunion look. While usually reserved for the office, if you pick a fitted silhouette, it is sexy and flattering, while remaining appropriate and classy. Pair the skirt with a blouse that has alluring details- lace, draping, sheer sleeves or sleeveless, etc. If the weather calls for it, a structured, cropped jacket is perfect way to top off the look. Accessorize with peep-toe pumps and pearls or other classic, minimal jewelry.
Some reunions are more casual, so feel free to opt for jeans and a fabulous, polished top. Play up your accessories and add some chunky, glam jewelry or statement heels to your laid-back look.
For any outfit, be sure to have a clutch or evening shoulder bag which holds all of the essentials- lipstick, compact, breath mints, cell phone. You never know who you might run into or rekindle a relationship with, so be sure to always have the back-ups which keep you looking your best!
At a school reunion, your confidence is your best accessory. So throw on your standout look, your highest heels, and your biggest smile, and you are ready for an evening where you will truly make a statement.

It’s the second week of June, school is out, and your schedule is most likely full of weekends away, barbecues, and graduation parties. While showing up and looking your best is usually enough, with graduation parties it can be tough to find the perfect gift. Here are four fabulous gift ideas for every budget.
1. The Inexpensive Yet Stylish
A colorful scarf (like this Lauren by Ralph Lauren http://bit.ly/MJwHbm) is a fun, personal gift for any grad. Whether she spends her summer celebrating, preparing for college, or job searching, the scarf will take her from dinner with the girls, to interviews, to the office. A scarf is a great way to add personality to any look without putting in a lot of effort, something every woman appreciates, no matter what her age.
2. The Moderately Stacked
Alex and Ani bracelets are not only the new version of the charm bracelet, but they have become some of the most popular and stylish stackable bangles for fashionistas. They are made completely out of recycled metals, and while helping the environment, the more you add to your collection, the better they look. Give your grad a set of bracelets with some personalized charms, like her initials, zodiac sign, or the “Path of Life” charm which is perfect to lead her into the next chapter of her life. And the best part? You can purchase one or an armful depending on your budget! www.alexandani.com
3. The Splurge
If your graduate is either going off to college or the office, a go-to carryall for her everyday needs is a must. The Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote is a classic and will bring her from one stage of her life into the next for years to come. You can also have the leather monogramed for a personal touch. Who wouldn’t love a little Louis? http://bit.ly/Lc6RkY
4. One Size Fits All Budgets
Lastly, every grad needs a new wardrobe to update her look for her new life in the “real world.” What’s better than a Second Time Around gift card to get her all the classics, staples, and on-trend pieces for the college girl or working girl’s closet? www.secondtimearound.net
