Style Inspiration: What to Wear to a Gala Awards Ceremony

Hey Tee! The standard wardrobe requirement for a gala is a gown. The easy choice is a floor sweeping dress with a cute clutch and stunning shoes:

Some gala dress codes can be a little more lax. Angel Laws of Concrete Loop recounted a funny story in her book, “Angel’s Laws of Blogging,” where she showed up to what she thought was a gala…but people were wearing jeans. She recounted, “I went out and bought a fancy, formal dress. It was a gold lamé ball gown and very Hollywood. When I arrived at the event, I was mortified to discover that everybody else was super low-key. Some of the people attending looked like they had just rolled out of bed and hadn’t even combed their hair…I wanted to sink right into the floor.” Eek, imagine!
If you’re not sure of how dressy the event will be, stay on the safe side in a flouncy little black cocktail with chic details like visible lace, feathers, or a large bow:

One more note: If you’re on a budget, Rent the Runway now has ball gowns. You can order one for just a few days and send it back for under $100. This might be a good option if you don’t want to spend all your coins! Sign up here and check out their selection!
