Look Inside Your Closet: What To Wear To Your Next Event

What To Wear To Your Next Event

The key to dressing for any event is understanding what you want to achieve in the first place. What’s your main goal? Do you want to look professional, sexy, or natural? Even if you intend on wearing a black tuxedo to your next event, it doesn’t mean you have to wear black shoes and tie. Choosing an outfit that’s appropriate and representative of who you are—and making sure it fits right!—will help ensure that the focus remains where it should: on your natural charm and charisma.

Military parade

If you’re going to a military parade, you can dress in a patriotic theme. You could wear an American flag scarf or vest. You could also wear the colors of your country’s flag.

You can also dress in a military theme by wearing camouflage clothing.

If you want to dress in formal clothing, then wear pants or skirts with nice tops and jackets with boots or heels on them so that they look professional but not too formal at all!

If you want to look casual, then get some jeans and shirts that are comfortable while still looking fashionable!


When you are attending a wedding, you will want to dress in a manner that reflects and celebrates the couple being married. You should also consider what type of wedding it is and how formal or informal it will be. Is this a daytime or evening wedding? Is it outside? What is the weather like where you’re going?

The dress code for weddings can vary widely depending on where you live and who exactly is getting married, but here are some general guidelines:

  • If there is not an official dress code listed in the invitation or posted online, ask someone who has been invited before what they wore and why they chose that outfit over others. This person may be able to give you additional information about how formal or informal this event will be; what kind of weather there might be; whether or not guests should arrive early (or late) for cocktails/dinner; if there will be dancing; etc.
  • If there IS an official dress code listed somewhere on your invitation card, read through it carefully so that when determining which outfits would work best for each guest individually!

Corporate function

When it comes to corporate events, the dress code is less about what you wear and more about how you wear it. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on fancy business clothes to impress your boss or colleagues; there are plenty of ways to look professional without spending a fortune.

In terms of what you should be wearing, remember these basic rules:

  • Dress to impress, but don’t overdo it. If this is your first day on the job and everyone else looks like they’re ready for an interview at Goldman Sachs, keep in mind that you don’t need to spend $200 on new suits or dress shirts when people will only remember how well-mannered and intelligent you were during the meeting (not your outfit).
  • Dress appropriately for the occasion. If there’s no specific dress code listed in the invitation or sent through email beforehand, ask someone who works at this company if they have any suggestions as far as what types of clothes would be appropriate for this particular event—then go even further than that! Find out if there will be any special guests attending (such as perhaps UCLA professors) so that way everyone feels comfortable talking with each other.

Art show

An art show is a gathering where you can view and purchase works of art. If you’re an artist looking to exhibit your work, then you should know that how you dress will affect the way buyers perceive your work.

The first thing buyers notice is what they see: the painting or sculpture itself. However, they will also be looking at how it’s presented—whether that means it has been framed or if it’s hanging on a wall or leaning against one in an interesting way—and at how much space there is around it (no one wants to stand too close). You don’t want anything distracting from the piece itself (like if someone was wearing bright colors) but if there are other people around who are dressed nicely, this can actually add interest by showing off their different styles and personalities.

Job interview

When you’re going on a job interview, you want to dress for the type of person you want to be.

It’s about more than just being presentable—it’s also about showing who you are and what kind of work you’ll do best. In other words, your clothing should represent how much effort and time you’d be willing to put into the position at hand, if offered the job.

Formal dinner party

  • Dress appropriately. The most important thing to note when dressing for a formal dinner party is that you should be comfortable, while also being respectful of the occasion and other guests. No matter how much you love your blue jeans and sneakers, they don’t belong at a formal dinner party.
  • Be yourself. Don’t let your dress code dictate who you are as a person or what style of clothing works best for you—if it makes sense for the event and isn’t too casual or formal, then wear it! Remember: there are no wrong outfits or inappropriate choices; only bad ones.
  • Be aware of the occasion—and its dress code—as well as the host’s expectations and preferences (they’ll likely tell all guests about them anyway). This will help ensure that everyone feels comfortable at your dinner party—no one wants to feel out of place!

Baby shower

The baby shower is a celebration of pregnancy and impending parenthood. Guests should wear something that is comfortable and easy to move in, but still appropriate for the occasion. This can be as simple as jeans and a t-shirt or as complicated as an evening gown. It’s up to you!

The venue will also have some bearing on what you choose to wear. If you’re having multiple showers (or if this particular event isn’t really a “shower”), then there are no hard rules about what type of clothes are appropriate—decide based on whatever makes you feel comfortable!

It’s all about understanding your priorities, the event, and yourself.

  • Know your priorities: Know what you want to accomplish at this event. Is it important that you make a good impression on someone? Or are you just trying to be there for fun? Maybe you don’t care about any of that—you just want to have a good time with friends! Whatever your priority is (or priorities), know what it is and let that shape your wardrobe choice accordingly.
  • Know the event: Make sure you understand what kind of occasion this is going to be. Is it formal or informal? What sort of dress code do they have in place? If there isn’t a specific dress code laid out, try asking around or looking at pictures from previous years so that you can get an idea of how people typically dress for these events. For example, if it’s an outdoor BBQ-style party where everyone will be wearing jeans and flip flops, then maybe don’t wear heels! This goes both ways too—if there has been some confusion about whether an event requires business casual attire versus cocktail attire versus whatever else comes up when people hear “dressy”, then err on the side of caution and go more formal than not.
  • Understand yourself: Do I feel comfortable in these clothes? Does my body look good enough in them? Am I willing to deal with how uncomfortable my feet may feel all night long if I wear heels?” These are all questions we should ask ourselves before making outfit decisions because they help determine whether or not we’re truly happy with our choices even if no one else notices anything different about us than usual.”

Final thoughts

So, what should you wear? That’s up to you. Just remember that it’s all about understanding your priorities, the event, and yourself. If you want to look good when going to a formal dinner party or wedding, play around with some more formal clothing options (and maybe even throw in something unexpected). If you care mostly about being comfortable but still want to make an impression at work events, try wearing something bright and colorful instead of black pantsuits every time!

The main takeaway is that there isn’t just one right way to dress for any occasion; if anything is wrong here it’s probably not appreciating how important it is for each person’s unique identity.
