Happy birthday candles in front of balloons.

In honor of August and September being the most popular birthday months of the year, I decided to do a post with birthday outfits to inspire any girl whose birthday is coming up, whether it’s in the next few days or next few months!

My birthday is definitely my favorite day of the year. I can get away with almost anything, my mom buys me red velvet cupcakes, I get to wear the sparkliest, most daring outfit I want, and no one can say anything about it because it’s MY day! I think every girl should have the right to be completely outrageous for at least one day of the year, and what better excuse than your birthday?

With these outfits, there’s no doubt that you’ll be the center of attention all night. Even if it’s not your birthday, these outfits will bring out your inner shine and make you the most confident girl in the room. Even better, each outfit comes with its own matching cupcake – everyone’s favorite birthday treat!

Birthday Outfit #1: Birthday Bombshell

Birthday outfits - cute all black birthday outfit with flared jeans and red shoes

Products: Jeans – Nordstrom, Top – Nordstrom, Shoes – Mango, Ring – Revolve

This birthday outfit is fun yet still captivating, bringing back the boot cut jeans and adding some low red heels.

The hint of gold from the ring adds a little something extra to this otherwise minimal look. This would be a great outfit idea for drinks with friends!

And while you’re wearing this, be sure to treat yourself to a delicious red velvet cupcake (my personal favorite).

Birthday Outfit #2: Sleek and Sexy

Birthday look -- little black dress outfit for birthday with black heels and bag

Products: Dress – Revolve, Shoes – Steve Madden, Bag – Nordstrom

Who says you have to go bright and bold for your birthday? If you have a minimal style, this is the birthday outfit for you.

This tight, corset like dress is totally hot and perfect for the girl who wants to look sleek on her birthday — I could see this for dinner and then drinks and dancing. The slight different texture in the bag breaks up the dress and the shoes and makes the look more interesting.

Wear this outfit while eating a delectable brownie chocolate cupcake to kick off your best birthday yet.

Outfit #3: Sweet Like Candy

Birthday outfits ideas - lavender tank, leather skirt, ankle boots, choker

Products: Top – Asos, Skirt – Revolve, Boots – Asos, Bracelets – Club Monaco

This beautiful lilac-colored silk top is a perfect feminine outfit choice if you don’t want to dress up too girly on your birthday.

The leather skirt and black boots keeps the outfit on the edgier side, while the gold bracelets add a dainty touch.

Outfit #4: Pretty in Pink

Products: Jeans – Revolve, Top – Revolve, Heels – Revolve

This last outfit is perfect for birthday girls with a feminine and girly sense of style. This outfit, consisting of a beautiful lace top paired with medium wash jeans, would work for just about any birthday plans you might have. (It would pair well with any of our ideas from our 21st birthday ideas post!)

This look is casual, yet definitely still special.

The glitzy strap on the heel makes the outfit feel more dressed up for a birthday occasion. You need some sparkle on your birthday!

This is the perfect look to make you feel cheery on your birthday, so enjoy it with a pink frosted cupcake.

  1. I really like the first outfit, but I’m not as big of a fan of the other ones. The boots in number 4 seem a little weird with the rest of the outfit, since the boots seem like more of a winter boot, while the rest of the outfit seems pretty springy. I think you did a great job though, these outfits all have at least parts of them that I really like!

  2. This is such a great and fun post to read, not to mention how cleverly you coordinated outfits with — of all things — cupcakes (my fave!!).

    Oh, as an added note– I think Bizzy should change her/his name to ‘Bitc_y”. Just a thought!! 🙂

    Happy Birthday!!!! 🙂

  3. Sorry to say I am not really liking any of these outfits. They don’t seem like they would be flattering to many body types.

  4. ahhhhh my birthday party was yesterday!! you posted this one day too late 🙂 not to worry, I wore a very fashiontoast inspired outfit so I felt pretty good.

  5. These outfits aren’t really my style, but I can def seem them working on other people! I would probally wear a slip with a foolproof cardigan and some tights and maybe flats. Sounds wierd, but it totally works!

  6. I have to agree – I wouldn’t wear most of this. Not because they’re bad outfits (they’re all very cute 🙂 but because it’s not my style. However, the second outfit is really adorable, and I think you did a great job putting it together.

  7. Timing is awesome for this article and so are the outfits! My birthday is on the 21st so I have been shopping around. Love this article!

  8. i like the idea of coordinating the cupcakes around the outfits, cute! it’s not really my style, but i’m sure they would look good on the right types!

  9. Love it! I actually recently got a purple Max Azria bandage skirt, which I LOVE, and wore it out last Saturday night with black heels and a black t-shirt, and felt fantastic 😀

  10. Oh these are published just one day late for my birthday (February 5 as well)! Love these outfits!

    P.S. Happy belated birthday!!
