17 Outrageous Looks To Wear On Your Birthday

So your birthday is on the horizon and you can’t decide what to wear. Whether you’re staying in all day, throwing a house party, or going out, it’s always fun to celebrate your birthday in style. For some people this might mean rocking a decadent designer dress or wearing a swanky vintage find, but for others it means letting your hair down and really having fun with fashion.

Depending on your plans, you might need to look semi-professional or even go for some chill vibes like Gigi Hadid on her 21st birthday. However, if you’re more of a Taylor Swift when it comes to celebrating your birthday, you may want something a little more quirky. One of Taylor’s most memorable birthday parties has to be her winter wonderland themed bash, although her 25th birthday party included party hats, reindeer antler headbands, and a poop emoji mask, so it’s too close to call. In fact, Taylor is the best party planner, whether it be her birthday or someone else's. She stylishly slayed at her BFF Abigail’s surprise party in cute co-ords paired with a fluffy tiara and a feather boa when posing for photos. So celebrate your birthday in novelty clothes and accessories, because the opportunity comes but once a year.
