Spring Fashion Etiquette
Spring can be a busy time – more events to attend, more outings to go to. So what’s right fashion etiquette for occasion?
Get together in near future?
A re-union? Try something in a festive jewel tone and be sure to finish your look with some fabulous shoes and hand bag and don’t forget jewelry. Add earrings and a necklace to finish your look.
A baptism – you’re godmother? Try a soft flowing skirt and a cap sleeve blouse. Or how about a nice light shift topped with a print jacket. You’ll look stylish but you won’t be over done. Pay attention to shoes on your feet – classy but comfort is important because you’ll be standing for a while. Add some light jewelry, a pair of baguette studs and a chain and you’ll be ready.
A date for high tea? Although formality of white gloves is gone it is still important to dress nicely. Do not wear jeans or a sloppy shirt. If high tea is an informal meeting then pants with a nice light jacket is spring colors is appropriate. If high tea is to honor someone then step it up a notch with a nice light skirt and top, or a nice light dress with jacket. Some funky jewelry for casual get together or more elegant jewelry for more formal get together.
Cocktails? There are plenty of options for cocktails. A light weight dress in spring colors with short sleeves, dress it up a little with three quarter sleeves. Go for a fun print, v necklines are great, and don’t forget finishing touches with jewelry. Try some dangle or chandelier earrings. Add a tennis bracelet or bead necklace, some fun but sexy shoes and your set.
Wedding? Make certain you’re not resembling bride or taking away from her day by outdoing her. Contrary to popular belief black is an acceptable color for a wedding. Decide what you’re wearing to wedding based on type of wedding – is it formal choose a formal dress. Semi casual – skirt and blazer. Beach wedding – something soft and flowing. Add appropriate jewelry, shoes, and handbag.
