A ballet is a special event. An afternoon performance is not as dressy as an evening event. Something in good taste is in order. Since your boyfriend is wearing gray slacks and a blue dress shirt you can wear a LBD (Little Black Dress), black pants or a black skirt with a solid color blouse and black shoes. Dress up your outfit with some pretty jewelry and or clutch bag. If the event is in the evening and the weather is cool bring a shawl or jacket. Today you see every type of wearing apparel at the ballet so do not be surprised. Some people will be very dressed up and others dressed way too casual looking.
The Little Black Dress, The Wardrobe Essential
“The Little Black Dress” has been described as sophisticated, sexy, provocative, chic, elegant, practical, seductive, correct, and ageless.
Build A Basic Wardrobe
There is no perfect basic wardrobe that applies to all. A basic wardrobe takes into consideration lifestyle or clothing for all of our activities. If you are a hockey coach your wardrobe is going to be a lot different than a corporate lawyer’s. However when we choose a basic article of clothing it is something we should plan on wearing many times (getting our money’s worth). These items are like good investments since they will reward us many times in the future. When buying basics purchase quality pieces, not necessarily the most expensive.
