Ask Our Style Techs | Daytime Best-Dressed List
From weddings and showers to garden parties and graduations, spring is a time for special occasions and milestone events. And our faithful MSL followers have busy social calendars! We have been getting a plethora of questions regarding what to wear for both daytime and evening special events. You asked, and now we are answering in a special edition of Ask Our Style Techs. Today, we have solutions to your daytime dress dilemmas. Watch tomorrow to see how to make the “best-dressed list” at evening soirées.
Q: I’m planning to attend a fundraising luncheon for a local charity and want to dress chic and stylish, but still fun and not too conservative. I live in a warm climate. What should I wear??
A: Color, color, color! There are so many amazing colorful prints this season — choose one that flatters your figure and makes a statement, then prepare for your picture to be snapped. If you prefer a solid color, there is a rainbow of colors to consider as well. Remember, for a daytime charitable luncheon, keep your style on the respectable side, nothing too low-cut or revealing — save it for nighttime.
Q: I am hosting a baby shower at my home for my BFF’s baby number one. It’s a boy. What should I wear?
A: Ahhh… such a joyful time. A pretty, ladylike silhouette works best for such an occasion. Anything too tight, sexy or short should be thrown to the wayside — we don’t want our pregnant friend to feel any more like a house than she already does, right? Remember those days, moms??
Q: My niece is graduating from college in May and I’m not sure what to wear for the ceremony that will also work for the brunch afterwards, which will likely take place both indoors and outdoors. Help!
A: A graduation brunch can vary greatly in style, from casual to more formal, but you really can’t go wrong with a sheath dress. A playful springtime print paired with a chunky heel that will work well in the grass if need be, is a can’t-miss choice. Add a cropped blazer if it’s on the cool side the day of the event.
