How to Rock Semi-Formal Looks

How to Rock Semi-Formal Looks
When you think House of Haute, what probably comes to mind is sexy looks, girls night attire, maybe even vacation wear. Don't get it twisted, though! Every now and then upscale, semi-formal styles cycle through our inventory and we love them just the same. This one is for the guys and girls who may ask themselves "Where am I going to wear this?" We know a place or two!

WEDDINGS

Spring is typically one of the most popular seasons for weddings. Ironically, it's also when most of us love to wear white. If you find yourself searching for pieces that won't clash with the bride's gown, try a fitted dress with simple ruching or a monochrome two-piece set.


ART EXHIBITS

Museums aren't exactly the most "formal" environment, but you may attend an exhibit event that requires a clean cut look. Opt for something creative, like an abstract print that resembles paintbrush strokes. A mini dress is also a great option. Too short for your taste? Drape a long tunic or lightweight cardigan over your shoulders to make it modest.


HAPPY HOUR/EVENING LOUNGE

Take your fashion top from work to happy hour by swapping your slacks or pencil skirt for jeans (as seen above). Boom. Now you're ready to reunite with the girls for cocktails, conversation and good eats!


In the case that your nighttime escapade is a little more high-end - like fine-dining restaurants or an evening lounge - a curvaceous, off-shoulder set is appropriate for the occasion.


WORK EVENT/GALA

 

For corporate events, you want to achieve a dressy casual look. A black and white color palette is classic and chic for social mixers. Here, you can also wear unique prints to give co-workers a glimpse at your expressive side.

 

With these tips, we hope you can take every semi-formal event by storm! Let us know how you rock this style of fashion by tagging us @houseofhaute.
