What should I wear for my friend’s sweet sixteen?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions among teenagers. It’s never too early to start thinking about what to wear to a friend’s sweet sixteen. Whether you need to wear your best dress to a gathering or just jeans and a t-shirt, it’s all about celebrating together and having fun.

1. Carefully review the invitation. The way you are invited gives some clues about the dress code. If the hostess makes a phone call or just sends an email, it may be a very informal birthday party. Casual clothing is fine. If she receives an invitation, it will probably be a formal event, which means that she should dress appropriately.

2. For girls, they are expected to wear a floor-length dress once they are invited to a “black tie” party. For the boys, just wear your black tie and decent tails.

3. If it is not a “black tie” party, but an event that takes place at night. Girls, choose a knee-length dress for a party if formal attire is requested. And the guys rent a tuxedo.

4. If the hostess requires cocktail attire, she can dress a little less formally. For girls, she simply chooses her favorite cocktail or knee-length dresses with sparkly sequins, beads or crystals. For boys, a suit and tie are fine.

5. Consider the location of the party. If the party is on the beach in the afternoon, casual beachwear goes well with it. If you’re invited to a late-night party, you’d better keep your jeans in your wardrobe. If you’re attending a pool party, be sure to pack extra dry clothing and a swimsuit.

6. Pay attention to the theme of the party. Traditional sweet sixteen party themes include ’70s disco or a Renaissance-inspired party. Renting a suitable costume will help you enjoy the party. If you’re going to an Old Hollywood themed party, simply borrow your grandmother’s outfit or rent it from a costume shop. The princess-themed party is one of the favorite themes for sweet 16s. The girls wear ball gowns and tiaras, while the boys wear soft-toned tuxedos for a dapper look. If the birthday falls on a holiday, throwing a festive party couldn’t be more fun. Of course, if you are scheduled for a Christmas party, prepare some festive costume to make the most of this event. Twilight and Harry Potter are popular movie themes for teens to throw a wonderful sweet sixteen party. Remember to plan ahead for your vampire or witch costume.

7. If you still have no idea what to wear, talk to the party hostess. Most girls want their friends to feel comfortable and cozy in what they wear. And believe me, they are willing to advise you how to dress for this event.


For boys, rent your tuxedo as soon as possible if you plan to attend a formal event around prom or homecoming season.

For the girls, don’t try to steal the spotlight from the birthday girl when you invite her to a sweet 16 party. Remember that she is the only princess of the day.
