Knockout Necessities

For your next evening out, remember that head-turning style is a head-to-toe process. From your hair to your heels, we’ve pulled together the best pieces and products to achieve your next knockout look. Prepare to swoon, stylista!

1. The luscious locks
During your shower, it’s worth taking the extra few minutes to apply a deep-conditioning mask several times a week in replacement of your usual conditioner, especially on days you know you’ll be rocking an extra-special style. Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion™ Deep Conditioning Shine Mask infused with Moroccan Argan Oil will provide your locks with intense hydration for touchably soft hair that shines.

When you’re ready to style, begin blow-drying with a round brush to shape your tresses into soft waves or straight strands, depending on your preference. For an extra boost of weightless shine, complete your styling routine with Suave Professionals® Moroccan Infusion™ Styling Oil. On wet hair, apply two to three pumps of the luxuriously smelling product from mid-shaft to the ends of your strands and then comb it through for even distribution. If using the oil on dry hair as a finisher, apply one to two pumps over the surface of your mane, focusing primarily on the ends.

2. The coolest clutch
Accessories are the perfect place to be daring with your style choices without looking as if you’ve overdone it, so go a little crazy with your evening bag. Whether you’re drawn to bold hues, interesting ornamentation, or brilliant patterns, pick a clutch that’s sure to spark interest.

3. The devastating dress
Shining style doesn’t have to be loud and overstated. A classic LBD, especially one with meticulously clean lines and a classically feminine silhouette, is instantly alluring. We’re in love with this sleeveless number by Preen. It may not be the most skin-showing dress, but there’s still something undeniably sultry about its combination of a fitted middle, deep neck, and timeless structuring.

4. The perfect pout
A bold lip color is the classiest way to complement tantalizing tresses and a chic ensemble. A rich raspberry shade is sophisticated but also provides a cheeky pop of color to liven up any look.

5. The killer hot heels
Every girl should own at least one pair of semi-impractical spiky stiletto sandals in a shiny metallic shade for the ultimate special occasion. You’ll instantly feel fierce, and others will notice too.
