What can I wear to a preview of Murder on the Orient Express? We are invited to an evening preview opening of the new movie of Murder on the Orient Express. Invite specifies soda and popcorn will be served to the guests.
A preview to see a NEW movie is awesome. Movies are casual events. Soda and popcorn are a clue that this is not a fancy event. Wear casual pants / dark jeans and a sweater, blouse or cotton knit top. Another option would be a skirt and top with tights. Flats, ankle shoes, boots and low heel shoe styles are more casual than high heels. You can add a blazer to step up your look. Women do not get dressed up for movies unless they are fundraisers with cocktails and / or dinner. Enjoy!
What does “smart casual” mean? I just received an invitation specifying “smart casual” attire.
Smart casual refers to a business casual dress code. Ask yourself what you would wear to work on a casual Friday. You want to look more smart than casual, more of a stylish casual that looks neat but is informal. A skirt with shirt style blouse, pants or dark jeans (not too tight) with a blouse and blazer or simple style dress with a cardigan sweater would be “smart casual”. Your clothing should fit you perfectly and should not be not too revealing. Style your outfit with accessories to give it an extra punch and elevate your look. You can do this with jewelry, shoes, color or bag. Avoid large bags. A clutch bag or medium size bag will work. It is definitely smarter to be under-dressed than over-dressed otherwise you look ridiculous in today’s world.
The scarf offers endless possibilities for enhancing your looks and adding uniqueness to your personal presentation. Scarves can help you individualize your look in three ways: 1) they come in many sizes and fabrics, 2) you can combine them with various types of clothing and 3) you can tie or secure them in many different ways.
