How to not overdress at events

Everyone has pretty much the same definition of an event and how to dress for it. You probably know that no matter the occasion or the season, an event always comes with its sets of expectations regarding the outfits that the attendees are going to wear: Every person who has ever gone to an event knows that if one wants to blow those expectations out of the water, one needs to stand out from the crowd. However, there is quite a difference between blowing expectations out of the water and blowing them out of proportion. That’s why we’re going to explain to you how you can avoid being overdressed for an event.

Read the room before entering it

One of the key rules for people who want to dress just right for an event is to always know which type of event they’re dressing up for. It may sound obvious, but we all know at least one person who attended their little sister’s school play dressed like they were at the Oscars. Know what event you’re going to, and who is going to be there. If the event isn’t too formal (like a family event or a coworker’s birthday), a sober suit will do just fine. 
On the other hand, if you know for a fact that the event you’re going to attend is very important and that everybody there will be dressed to kill, you will need to put on your best-tailored outfit.

On another note, always remember to have an eye on the colours of your outfit. If the event is taking place in a professional setting or is related to bad news (i.e. funerals), you will probably want to wear more discreet colours, like black or dark blue. However, if you know that the event is more festive, you will be able to have more fun with your outfit.

Your outfit must fit you before it fits the event

No matter the outfit or the occasion, if your outfit doesn’t fit you, you are going to look ridiculous. You can show up in the most expensive clothes you own, but if the legs of your pants are too long or if your jacket is too little, people will remember your outfit – for all the wrong reasons. Instead, you should look like you were born with the outfit you are wearing. If you don’t want to worry about that aspect of your outfit, a tailor-made suit is always the best go-to- option for you, whether you are a man or a woman. A good tailor will make sure that your suit fits you perfectly and that every detail is on point. That way, you will look like a million bucks and you will make the greatest impression. After all, that’s what you are hoping for, right?
