What To Wear To: Entertain At Home

August 1, 2008 by Bryn

When entertaining at home, you have to keep it simple — when dressing that is. You will have much more on your mind than what to wear, so opt for one stand-out frock instead of trying to pair a shirt/pant, shirt/skirt combo. A fun print will set the vibe for a relaxed atmosphere – and can also serve as a conversation piece. Make sure to choose a dress without sleeves (so you won't get too hot running around), and in a dark color (in case you spill something on it). The next most important concern is shoes. Flats, flats, flats. You will be hustling and bustling all night long, so choose extra-comfy flats to keep your feet happy.

Keep accessories to a minimum. Bracelets and rings can get in the way of handling food and drink, and a long necklace might dangle a little too dangerously over the stove. So embrace the Mad Men fashion craze and choose a vintage-inspired brooch. And don't forget the most important accessory of all – barrettes to keep your tresses out of your face.

Finally, keep your darling dress in impeccable shape with a kitschy chef's apron. Choose one that compelements your ensemble and you might not want to take it off.
