303 Magazine’s 10 Year Anniversary event, The White Party is just around the corner. The event will take place on Thursday, August 28th at The Breakers Resort.
It will include specialty cocktails, South American appetizers, and a runway show on the water. Still don’t have your tickets? Get them quick before they sell out. We’re excited to see all the fun, quirky and artistic white looks Denver will be putting together. But just in case you still need some help deciding what to wear, here are our five favorite staple pieces you can adjust to fit your personal style.
Our 5 Favorite Staple Pieces for this Thursday:
1. Classic Button Up
Keep it crisp and clean, or dress it up. Whatever you do, you can’t go wrong with a classic white button up. This piece is perfect for any occasion and we’re sure you have one hiding in your closet. You can do it in silk with a large bow to make the look girly and flirty, or add some flare and color with a great print. White lace adds great detail to a traditional top and will help you stand out in a sea of white. Maybe take it an extra mile by adding a strip of black or color. This look adds some contrast and edge without straying to far away from the dress code.
2. Work it Out
Take inspiration from the work place with a white blazer. Keep it professional with a simple, single button blazer. You can also opt for a notched out lapel that will add some geometric design to the entire look. Not into a tailored look? Search for an oversized piece with extra large fabrics. This will allow for a more natural, draped look that can work with pants, a skit, or dress. Want to go bold? A white blazer with color pipping can add that much needed flare without going over the top.
Another piece everyone should have in their closets is white jeans. You can go with a skinny leg or a dramatic flare, whatever you choose you can’t go wrong with this simple pant. White jeans are easy to dress up or dress down and will work with any top you select. They’re easy going and will leave your outfit worry free, giving you time to enjoy a few cocktails or two.
4. Vest Galore
A white vest is a piece many of us may not have in our closets. Take it biker-cool with a white leather vest complete with buttons, zippers, and sass. Or go simple with a double-breasted linen piece that will keep the white look clean. Look out for cool detailing such as an asymmetrical zipper or side pockets which will give your look some much needed character. Throw this piece over any outfit to give it a layered and polished look.
A white dress can be faltering for everyone – it’s just a matter of finding the right one. This piece takes some work but can be just as versatile as our white button up. A tight, sheer or bandage number is made for the girl who loves her body. Its a bit less forgiving but screams sexy. An all-lace dress is classic and can be paired with red heels for a bust of color. If you want to cover up a few of those summer barbecue lumps search for an A line dress. This piece is flattering for any body type and can be found in a multitude of styles.
