As the quote said, “Nobody wants to give up a weekend-long excuse to dress up.”
And guess what ladies, birthday is a whole month-long excuse to put on all darling dresses and feel all spoiled and fancy!
To help you bring your A-game to outshine one another, I’ve gathered 10 birthday outfit ideas for my black girls.
From a statement corset dress to a classy ladylike look, I’ve got you all covered. Enjoy! ♥️
1. Spice up your birthday look with corset
Birthday is a perfect time to try some new styles and if you haven’t tried the corset yet, what are you waiting for?
From corset belts to corset dresses, they are taking fashion by storm these days for a good reason.
As a girl with a small chest, it is surprising to see a cleavage with the corset tops!
Featuring the sturdy fabric and structured hourglass shape, it just effortlessly achieve a busty and hourglass figure for me.
I don’t know about you but this is my ultimate confidence booster for my birthday!
Do a pastel pink jumpsuit and corset set seem over the top? Not when you are the birthday girl! That underbust corset is the aesthetic of a waist shaper.
To give a stylish twist, a V Hem Panelled Corset Top just looks one-of-a-kind. As a petite girl, I love this design as the V line can elongate my figure visually.
Together with a pair of forgiving high waist black jeans, this is how you fake an hourglass.
2. Glam up your birthday look with silk dress
A silk dress may not be for the sweet 16 but if you are in your mid-20s and 30s, a classy dress can always elevate your style with a dash of womanly classy vibes.
Featuring the shimmering fabric and butter-like hand feel, these darling pieces just carry you differently.
For a dash of spiciness, go for the side leg split just look seductive and leg flattering.
Together with a pair of nude heels, you are sure to turn heads.
Vibrant hues like gold tones and warm yellow just look the best on dark skin and help brighten up your ensemble instantly.
Birthday is definitely the time to try out some new colors – I’m sure that will be a nice surprise!
3. DRESS LIKE A BOUDGIE BIRTHDAY GIRL
Looking bougie is more than a trend, but a lifestyle. You surely want to look classy and expensive 24/7, and especially for your big day.
For a boss lady look, throw yourself a fitted double-breast blazer that just looks unique and polished.
For hairstyle, I’m obsessed with the sleek low bun lately as it just makes me look so sharp and put together.
Beige satin top and Chanel-inspired white tweed co-ord set? It’s EVERYTHING.
4. Enjoy the spotlight with a statement sequin dress
Wondering what dress screams party and wild night? A sequin dress.
While they are bold, will you regret wearing this for the birthday party? Hell NO!
This cutie just adds a bit of chic to any Instagram shot.
If you think an all-over dress is too tricky to wear, go for the dark hue like black can always balance out the boldness.
I will also go for the monochrome look for a united figure and minimize the exaggerating effect. For footwear, you can easily incorporate a nice pointy heel or sexy spaghetti strap heels for a statement look.
Don’t forget to go matchy-matchy with your girls! A fishtail sequin dress just looks fun and classy at the same time.
5. Get experimental with bright hues
As I’ve said, dark skin looks best in vibrant bright tones. If you want to look extra feminine and sassy, a red bodycon midi dress is a fail-proof formula to ensure you are getting all the attention on your birthday.
Plus, a ton of research has proved that red can make a woman looks more (sexually) attractive, just a reminder!
Besides red, I’d say yellow is another gorgeous shade. For a soft girl dreamy look, go for the pastel yellow to exude a sense of romance. Such a mood booster ♥♥♥
6. Keep it classic with black and white
If you are planning to do the birthday photoshoot, some girls want to keep it classic with black and white.
A delicate crown and a sweetheart neckline bodycon dress?
This combo just never gets old even after a decade. So yes, playing with classic colors is always a smart choice for a photoshoot!
Want to wear white lace without looking too mature? Go for the handy co-ord set with a midi A-line skirt to stay youthful and cute.
7. Go wild with animal prints
Birthday girl, keep the wild in you. A leopard print dress doesn’t like any other prints, it just screams “I’ve got a style and I ROCK it”.
Animal prints are just fierce, sexy, and sensuous in their own way and sometimes we just really need that vibes.
To look sleek and tasteful in animal prints, pair them with light neutrals like beige, cream and keep your accessories simple and you’ll be all set.
Step out of your comfort zone ladies!
8. Flatter your curves in a jumpsuit
I never thought of wearing a jumpsuit for my birthday but last year, my best friend Jane wear an all-white jumpsuit and that looks STUNNING.
Featuring the high waist cinching design and flare leg bottoms, its outfit just hit home.
I don’t know why but somehow I just think a classy low bun with chunky earrings goes well with the jumpsuit – it’s weird to say but that’s kind of empowering to me!
A purple satin pantsuit with beige pointy heels? YOU ARE THE BOSS.
9. Go for a baddie birthday girl look
Of course, I won’t miss out on my baddie girls!
For the “Dangerous but fun” look, go for a super-cropped denim top and patchwork jeans to make a statement.
Complete your look with an aesthetic butterfly chain necklace and oversized square sunglasses, girl you are ready to hit the town.
10. When in doubt, go monochrome
The last tip, you guessed it, monochrome look.
By putting all similar shade of hues on your body, it just makes the figure united and make you appear to be taller and slimmer visually.
So if you want something extra forgiving yet stylish, monotone will never disappoint you.
But that said, it’s too boring to wear the neutral on your birthday. Let’s try on some pastel hues like lavender, nude pink to embody the “I’m living my best life” vibes!
11. Who say you have to buy Designer Shoes?
Last but not least, the shoes and bags for the birthday girl! If you are a loyal reader of ladyrefines, you will know I seldom recommend shoes and bags on a budget. Why? Because I just can’t find any that are cheap but look good at the same time!
But in 2022, I’ve discovered a new brand Charles & Keith. Their bags and shoes just hold high quality at super affordable prices. No wonder it’s all the rage in the US now.
The best part is, this brand was founded with a vision to empower women to express themselves freely through fashion. That’s even better :)! Check out the one below!
Seriously, who needs Jimmy Choo if I can find this Leather Gem-Embellished Stiletto Mules from Charles & Keith?
Charles & Keith has a ton of shoes from workwear to party look, make sure you check out HERE to view all. But let me tell you, that’s a rabbit hole…
