Winter 2014 Style Inspiration: What to Wear to a Networking Dinner

Jenn writes, “Hi FBD, short and simple…I am a Marketing Coordinator and attend tons of PR and Marketing events. With that comes tons of networking. I love to be trendy in and out of the office. But this time, I’m stumped. I have a marketing dinner/party to attend and need some style inspiration. What is too much and what’s just enough…please help.”

If you want to create a daring look, opt for a shift dress in a bold print like this Stella McCartney Gisella Snake Jacquard option.

Caged ankle boots and a printed clutch add depth to this dashing look. Throw a vividly hued coat over your shoulders and embrace a sassy lip color as the finishing touch.

For look #2, mix up a black and white look with a few eclectic pieces for a not so standard monochromatic finish. Spiked ankle boots, a Kelly green clutch, and striking gold jewelry add an edgy feel.

Opt for a little blue eyeshadow rimmed across the lower lash line and a voluminizing mascara option to add a little pop to your beauty lineup.

And last but not least, slip into a gorgeous Helmut Lang zipper gathered silk dress in a fresh berry hue. Let your accessories bring this dress to life with a stunning embellished collar necklace, grid-trimmed suede pointed toe ankle boots, and a jazzy wooden Kotur clutch.
