Dressing for an event you're hosting from home requires striking a balance between looking polished and feeling comfortable. Not to mention the teetering balancing act of making sure everyone is enjoying themselves while simultaneously double checking the appetizers don’t run cold. The best part about hosting a gathering under your own roof is that if you spill some Merlot on your outfit you can escape upstairs to change. Escape being the choice word (wink wink). Depending on how formal or informal the event you’re hosting from home is, we’re offering you some super helpful tips for dressing for a home-hosted event. And yes you should be wearing shoes.
Whether it’s a low key surprise birthday party or an intimate dinner party, we encourage you to dress up a bit. While you may be hosting from the comfort of your own home, it's still important to take it up a notch to show your guests that you've put effort into the event. The Donna buttondown is a perfect top pick for any home event. It gives main character vibes without being ostentatious. The Bianca shirt dress is another ideal pick for your event. Greet guests in a mini and cut the cake in the maxi. You’re officially the hostess with the mostest costume changes.
Don’t forget to pay extra attention to the little details like jewelry, accessories, and makeup as these granular alterations can make a big difference in elevating your outfit. Keep it fun and interesting but balanced with the theme of the event. Afterall, you’re hosting a party , you’re not wearing the party.
