How We Do Special Occasion Style

Weddings, fall formals, impending holiday parties—it’s that time of year when a fancy new frock (or two) is a must for your wardrobe. What’s a gal to do? Shop our stunning array of special occasion styles, of course! With flattering silhouettes and irresistible details, you’ll be wowing at every event from now ’til New Year’s Eve (and beyond). #TeamModCloth took some of our fave styles out for a spin in downtown San Francisco. Here’s the scoop on what they loved most about each look.

Turi’s Look

Turi, our lead copywriter, is a dream in this a-line number! “I fell in love with the classic silhouette of this dress, with the sweet bow detail and deep, yummy color that’s just perfect for an autumn party. Plus, there are little details that make this look practical, like pockets and a built-in bra so you don’t have to worry about straps showing.” Top with a statement necklace, and this frock is ready to mingle. “I’d love to host a cocktail party with fancy drinks. I can imagine queuing up the record player with retro tunes and decorating the house for fall.”

 Helen’s Look

Luxurious lace that’s also flattering? This dress has it all! Helen, our social media manager, raved about the fit. “I have always had a hard time finding dresses that flatter my petite but curvy frame – I’m 5’2″ and wear a size 12-14 dress. I have a belly and hips and curves. But it’s even harder after having a baby last year – my body has changed! Loved how this dress hit in all the right places – especially the waist and hemline. Perfect for a shortie like me. Fit tip: do go up if you are in between sizes – the 14 fit me perfectly.” Besides a friend’s upcoming wedding in Santa Cruz, her dream outing in this look would be “a horse and buggy ride around Central Park in NYC. Corny, I know. But a fancy ride deserves a fancy dress! I’ll save my stretch jeans for the Uber ride home. ;-)”

Katieanne’s Look

Katieanne, our executive assistant extraordinaire, makes this chic look feel so effortless! Her fave part about dressing up? “Showing it off! I love sharing a look with friends! A great look can be such a conversation starter!” With its opulent fabric, contrast collar, and (ahem) handy pockets, this frock is sure to garner a ton of compliments at any event. “I would love to wear this to a Record Release, patio party in the Hollywood Hills, drinking spritzers and listening to music in the sunshine!” Ummm, totally agree, Katieanne—can we crash?!
