Avanelle writes, “Hello Fashionettes! I am attending a fundraiser for a friend who is running for NY State Assembly. It is being held at a cute, swanky place in downtown Brooklyn. The invite says business casual but I am lost as what to wear. I want to look chic but not over-done and definitely not casual either. I love blazers and cute dresses. Please help!”
Even though the event calls for business casual attire, I really wanted to give you options that weren’t so indicative of the moment. With sassy prints and vibrant shades create a look that’s stylish and fun with a touch of sophistication.
I’m obsessed sleeveless waistcoats as a stylish alternative to the traditional outerwear option. For look #1 I styled a LK Bennett Cannes Sleeveless Tuxedo Jacket with a punchy Mary Katrantzou Kathmandu Skirt.
A pair of lace up sandals, an oversized leather clutch with triple clasp detailing, and a deco inspired crystallized cabochon necklace add the finishing touch.
Don’t put your peplum pieces to rest just yet. For your final wardrobe option, opt for a neon 3.1 Phillip Lim Mint Cloque Floating Peplum option offset by black glazed ponte pants and laser cut booties.
What do you think? Have I given you a few wardrobe ideas for your fundraising soiree?
