Ways to Make an Effort on a Special Occasion

Hair Extensions

For women wanting to do something different with their hair getting extensions is a great idea. This way if you normally sport a short bob you can turn up to the event and really wow everyone with your long luscious locks. This is a great way to really make an impression and to get people to think of you differently and the best part of all is that it’s easily reversible when you want to go back to your normal look.

Red Lipstick

This is another one for women, but if you want to make yourself look extra sophisticated and confident than trying a bold red lipstick with a black or red dress is a classic statement that will turn heads. If you don’t normally wear lipstick and generally stick to more neutral makeup, then this will be an even better way to make yourself standout and make it apparent that you’ve done something different.

Makeup in general is something that can make women look much more glamorous but there is a risk/reward balance to navigate. If you want something that will really make you look like a cover model, then try getting your makeup professionally done. You can do this for free at a department store if you’re willing to buy some products!


The most obvious way to dress up for a special occasion is to push the boat out with the clothes you wear. For women this is perhaps easiest as you can wear a nice dress, whereas for men it’s got to be a suit or tux. If you want to make your outfit look even more glamorous than usual though then there are two methods to use that won’t break the bank.

One is to rent an outfit which can that way be much more expensive and impressive than one you would buy. Another is to buy something cheaply then have it taken it at a tailor’s. This way it will look more fitted and as though it was tailor-made and that will make the whole thing look much more impressive.


When it comes to creating a great look the devil is in the details. There’s no point getting a nice dress or tux if you don’t also give proper attention to your shoes, bag and anything else you wear/bring on the day.
