With restrictions still in place for many cities, celebrating special moments like birthdays at home has become the norm.

However, just because you're not going out doesn't mean you should forget about looking fabulous on your special day. You're the queen of the day so make sure you feel and look great.

If you’re wondering what you should be wearing at your birthday party at home, check out these ideas:

Minimalist Cocktail Dress

A cocktail dress makes a fantastic choice for home parties because it isn't formal yet not overly casual. It's also the best choice if you want to look chic and fab.

Cocktail dresses usually hit around the knee. As a rule of thumb, stay away from both mini and maxi dresses and choose something in between.

Also, instead of going all out with a super fancy dress, go for something simpler. Consider a plain white or black cocktail dress if you want to look elegant and classy.

Don't forget to accentuate your look with jewelry, but don't overdo it. An engagement ring or a necklace is enough.

A Button Down Skirt With a Top

If you're not the type who would wear a cocktail dress but still want to elevate your style at your party, go for a button skirt. Button-down skirts have been around since the 1970s and they still trend these days.

That's not surprising because button-down skirts look flattering on almost every body type. It's a perfect piece to wear on a hot summer day.

For the top, you want to choose something minimal since this skirt already has enough details. For example, match a brown suede skirt with a white vest top, a blue button-down skirt with a white tie chest, or a denim button-down with a black off-shoulder blouse.

Long Dress with Luxe Flats

Who says you can’t wear a long dress at your party at home? Of course, you can! If you’re planning an intimate celebration with friends and family, with beautiful decor and table setting, you should make sure your outfits match.

You can dress it down a bit by wearing flats instead of heels. After all, who wears heels at home? Go fancy with flats. Choose something sparkly or luxurious. More importantly, find shoes that are comfortable to wear.

Bardot Top With Shorts

Bardot tops are very feminine, stylish, fresh, and comfortable. Plus, they suit various occasions, whether it's a simple party at home or a day at the office. Bardot clothing isn't only graceful but also elegant.

Bardot tops go perfectly with pants or shorts. If you're wearing a Bardot crop top, try it with high-waist jeans or high-waist palazzo pants. For a fun, casual, and laidback party with friends, pair a Bardot top with shorts.

Don't forget to match the colors of your outfit with the color scheme of your venue (in this case, your home) since Bardot tops often have flashy details and hues. Alternatively, you can choose a room that has a modern carpet with neutral colors that look good with every outfit.

Flare Pants

If you've spent the past few months (or years) living in your skinny jeans, now's the perfect opportunity to take your outfit up a notch with flare pants. Flair jeans certainly give off a seriously '70s vibe but aren't as dramatic as their bell-bottom ancestors.

A classic button-down is always a great option for flare pants. Leave it tucked in, front tucked, or half-tucked. If you want something more relaxed and warm for the fall or winter season, you can opt for chunky knit sweaters.

Wrap Skirt

No matter the season, you can always wear a skirt - a wrap skirt to be exact. If your birthday falls in the springtime, dazzle up with a playfully printed wrap skirt. Balance those busy patterns with a fitted white short or an A-line silhouette. Florals aren't your only option. Wrap skirts come in an array of colors, designs, and styles.


Even if you’re only celebrating at home, make sure you look fabulous on your special day. Home parties are not only a reason to celebrate with your loved ones but also a perfect opportunity to dress up! Make sure every moment is Insta-worthy with any of these outfit ideas.
