WHAT TO WHERE?

Decoding party dress codes.

Getting invited to parties is fun. Trying to figure out what to wear? Not so fun. Especially when there’s a dress code involved. And you have no freaking idea how to interpret said dress code. Here’s a handy guide that will get you through your next party situation dressed to kill, not stressed to kill!

 

SMART CASUAL

Kinda like business casual, but with a “look sharp” twist. You’re aiming for stylish not stodgy, yet very neatly put together. The classic black-and-white palette and crisp, minimal lines of a skirt and top combo from Kit & Ace will raise your smart-casual IQ 100%.

CREATIVE BLACK TIE

This one basically means get over yourself. Fashion is fun. So yeah, you should look dressy. But it’s okay to add a touch of wit. Try teaming a silky, pool-blue maxi from Calypso St. Barths with a pair of crisp, white Chucks or Stan Smiths.

COCKTAIL ATTIRE

A semi-formal look that leaves a lot of room for interpretation. You could wear a mini, midi or maxi. You could wear black pants and an elegant flowy top. There are plenty of options at your fingertips here at Bethesda Row.
