What to wear to an art program launch party?

Asked by xTheDreamer (897points) July 5th, 2010

I got accepted to an art program which is held by The Pancake Gallery and they’re having a launch party for the accepted students/participants. I received their invite but it didn’t say what kind of dress code it was, so now I’m not sure what I should wear. I’m not sure if I should go casual, semi-formal, formal or party outfit and I’m thinking of going shopping tomorrow. So what should I wear to this launch party?

I’m a female, 19 yrs old and I don’t like dresses nor heels.
What would you guys suggest?

Congrats!! All black is always the way to go… Black pants and a nice black shirt, button up or tank top with thick straps and a jacket. It will look sophisticated and clean. Wear black flats, closed toe.

perhaps a slimming and professional-looking pantsuit or suit jacket with a pencil skirt. Think Pepper Potts from Iron Man.

Ask the gallery owner for some advice on what to wear.

Simple, classy and sophisticated will work fine here. You never know whom you might meet!

How about something in the Lady GA GA vein! ? Early Madonna even, they’re two Arty types you could gain some inspiration from ;-)
I’m thinking tailored blouse, tight pencil skirt & long black boots :-/

It’s an art house? You wear whatever you want to wear. These kinds of things are great. You can show up wearing dead cats or you can show up wearing a wedding dress covered in ash. Just look like you. You are a walking reflection of your art.

I think you couldn’t go wrong with dressy black pants, a cream or white camisole and a tunic or jacket. Ballet slippers or similar flats to complete. Classy, yet artsy at the same time.
