Your Charity Event Style Guide
Posted on 09 December 2016
What an exciting time of year! Charity events are numerous and you have the opportunity to help others and the causes you hold most near and dear while serving as an active member of the community. There’s really nothing quite like it. The only thing that could give you pause is if you’re not sure what to wear. With a full calendar, you’ll need several stunning looks for the next few months. Let our style tips be your guide.
Consider the Theme
What does the invite read? Always be sure to adhere to the suggested or mandatory dress code. It’s the first step in avoiding a fashion faux pas. If the theme or dress code leaves much to the imagination, consider the occasion. For a more creative affair (such as a gala in support of the arts) feel free to be a little more eclectic and avant-garde.
And if you’re in the dark about interpreting a look, visit one of our pro stylists. We can help you find the outfit that suits the occasion and your personal style.
A classic look will always work well for a charity gala. Choose a figure-flattering dress in a classic silhouette and feel stunning. Opt for always-fabulous black or an optimistic, party-ready hue such as Schiaparelli pink, then play with the accessories.
Try a New Trend
There’s a gorgeous and dramatic 80’s revival happening this season. So if you haven’t had your fill of the era, look to today’s high glam party dresses. They feature bold, statement-making details including modern ruffles, puffed shoulders and one-shoulder silhouettes.
You really want to go all out and look your very best. We don’t do full-on glamour every day, so let’s have fun with it. At the end of the day, dressing well is about elegance, personality and that extra boost of confidence… so enjoy!
