Being invited to a fashion event is a great honor. It will be a great opportunity for you to learn more about the industry. You will also be able to connect with others within.
Of course, the question will be what to wear? It will be a great time to showcase your fashionista but at the same time, it is intimidating.
There two things you will need to be in the event:
- Be confident
- Be yourself
People may or may not judge, but that should not matter to you. As long as you know that you are not really doing anything wrong, you can ignore most of them.
But of course, there are still guidelines with these events. And because you are there to connect, you still have to make impressions. Here are some tips on what to wear in a fashion event:
1. What is Trending
As you are in the fashion industry, you should know what are the latest trends about it. That way, you can show that you are in the know and not left behind. Of course, you will not always follow them for there might be some that do not suit you. But even if that is the case, you can get some ideas from it or just some pieces and get them to fit with your style. That way, you will able to show that you can still follow trends even in your own way and also showcase your own style.
2. Know the Season
Another thing that should be kept in mind is the season. This means the colors will be essential. So, you will need to know what color is appropriate for that season. You can also wear all-black if you feel like you do not have the colors or they cannot work for you.
3. Be Comfortable
Even if you need to showcase your style, that does not mean you will compromise comfort. Remember that one of your purposes is to connect, so that means you must show that you are comfortable. Another factor is to enjoy the show. You will not if you are unease the whole time. To do this, choose the materials that will make you breathe and also wear something that will make you move freely.
4. Shoes are Important
A pair of good shoes is a must for a great outfit. But as said before, comfort is essential. At the event, you may be constantly walking and standing. So even if a pair of good five-inch stilettos look good with your outfit, always keep in mind if your feet will be happy with it. Because of that, opt for a good pair of flats or boots or even low heels. You can still manage to look chic and be comfortable at the same time.
5. Keep Accessories in Mind
Accessories are an essential aspect of your outfit. But that does not mean you will go crazy with it. Remember that your outfit should be the highlight, so do not let any of your accessories steal that. Opt to be minimal about your jewelry. Choose something that will just add interest. This is the same for your bag. You will need something light so has a clutch that will match your outfit.
