One of the cooler things about living in the Valley is all the awesome events we have right after the New Year. There’s all the car auctions (Barrett-Jackson, Russo and Steele); the Fiesta Bowl; The FBR Phoenix Open, and the best part is the weather is absolutely spectacular.
What I never get, however, is why it’s also the time of year, or the events per say, that have women gallivanting about in outfits that clearly show they have A.) No idea where they are at and B.) Clearly do not belong there.
I live and breathe fashion, this is as true as the sky is blue but that doesn’t mean stiletto’s and little black dresses should ever be worn on the green. (That’s the grass ladies.)
So since the Fleur’t Barrett-Jackson fashion show was last night and the Gala the evening before, unless you’re partying at the Stone Rose Lounge at the Garage this weekend, you should not be looking like this:
So here, a few tips on looking cute and event appropriate. That’s right, you can look superchic, stylish and event appropriate without being so wrecktastic.
There is dirt EVERYWHERE. I mean everywhere. Dirt and gravel and lots of rocks. So do not take this with a grain of salt when I say leave the Louboutins at home. That doesn’t mean you have to wear sneakers, God knows my only pair is reserved for the gym. Instead, try a pair of flat riding boots like this Marc by Marc Jacobs pair below. Wear it with a skinny jean or casual dress as shown.
On the off-chance it’s not too chilly, opt for some spring shorts. These Bamford city shorts are a great length and comfy too.
Yup, I still say you can sport a casual dress. The flat boots and tights soften up the look and again, leave the heels behind.
If you absolutely positively must wear heels, go for a wedge and pair with denim like this look below.
Whether with jeans, pants or a casual dress, a nice pair of black flats are a definite “Do.”
Whatever you wear, don’t forget a Cardigan! It’s breezy outside and the a/c’s running inside so you’ll definitely not want to leave home without it.
Enjoy the events!
