That’s the roof deck at SoHo House. Very glamorous. (Ooh, speaking of: want to know how to make a truly spectacular summer drink inspired by one I found at SoHo House years ago? Click here.)
Anyway, the Style Clinic got me all atwitter about things like white lace dresses and neon makeup (another one is coming up at the SoHo House Miami on June 7, for those of you in the area)…but while the above image (courtesy of Curve Boutique) is very pretty, it’s not exactly how I’d recommend doing the whole daytime sequins thing.
Mostly because I destroy my cocktail dresses by smashing them into overstuffed closets rather than bouncing about in the surf while wearing them. It’s a personal preference.
- Keep the overall palette subdued. This is not to say that you can’t include things like leopard. Did you know that animal prints have now officially reached “neutral” status? ‘Tis true.
- No spike heels. Flats, maybe wedges…but nothing that says “I am still wearing the clothes that I wore last night.”
- Makeup (and nailpolish) should be completely casual: keep it minimal and light, with maybe a swipe of liquid liner (all about brown these days) for definition.
- Likewise, keep the accessories to a minimum: your sequined piece is all the glitter you need.
