I’m at that pivotal age where people are making big life choices. While some of my friends are getting married or adopting dogs, I like to spend my nights at home, alone, with a glass of wine and my television air-playing TikTok videos. While I’m not getting married anytime soon, my closest friends have given me the chance to partake in some of the best parts about wedding planning without actually having to plan the wedding: helping them chose what they’re wearing on their most special nights.
While shopping for wedding dresses with my engaged best friend has bene incredibly exciting, we’ve both agreed it’s nothing in comparison to how easy and fun it is to shop for her engagement party look. For one, the stakes are nowhere near as high— you can chose a laid-back, on-trend outfit that’s often less expensive and less complicated to pick out. There’s quite a few engagement party outfit ideas out there on the internet, but frankly, none that feel achievable, on-trend, or re-wearable for years to come. Naturally, as the fashion editor friend, our group chat is filled with messages from me, raving about how cute she would look in one of 50 clothing options I’ve sent her.

Below, I’ve rounded up 6 stylish looks to inspire the (probably) long list of engagement party outfit ideas no-doubt living on your Pinterest board. From It girl-approved maxis to fashion insider-loved suits, here’s a few looks that practically scream ‘I do.’
