Ladies who lunch, this one is for you!! Are you on the board of a charity, or a part of your local country club? If so, you have probably been to a luncheon. And you have probably been stumped at what to wear.
Here are a few tips on how to lunch in style from yours truly:
- KNOW YOUR CROWD. There are many types of luncheons, and nothing worse than showing up to one under dressed. If you are going as a guest, always ask your friend what the attire will be like. Know if you are heading to a spring dress kind of place or somewhere you should be dressed more business professional.
- PLAY IT SAFE WITH COLOR. I like to tell clients it is best to play it safe with color in a situation like luncheons. Don’t go too bright, neon is something to stay away from. But also, try to step away from the black section of your wardrobe. Wearing pastels is the perfect way to stand out while fitting in.
- THINK OF WORK AND PLAY. Most ladies going to lunch are working it into a busy schedule. You have to be dressed to go back to your 9 to 5, or head to your next meeting. While carrying a clutch to something like this is a great idea, some times it just isn’t practical. If need be, bring your bag, just make sure it’s one that fits with what you are wearing, and not that old clunky one we all can’t seem to let go of.
