What to Wear to a Charity Event

What do you wear to a local charity event when the invitation says business chic? In today’s world, that can mean almost anything.

Long gone are those rigid rules about how to dress. Today, common sense and individuality rule. Here’s a sampling of what stylish women over 40 wore to a musical charity event that I recently attended.

A one-shoulder cocktail dress is a fabulous choice if you want to show a little skin but still look sophisticated. Asymmetrical styles like this are classy and sexy without being over the top.

It was the perfect dress for  Kenna Mann, the event organizer, who looked gorgeous in this sequined one-shoulder creation. Kenna let her dress be the focal point by keeping her accessories minimal. Her glamorous top bun was perfect. Wearing her hair down could easily have ruined the effect of the neckline.

You look stunning, Kenna!

This event featured legendary musician Randy Bachman ( famous from Guess Who), so it’s fitting that Raeda chose to wear a  pair of glamorous jeans to honor rock and roll.

Her sparkly gold waxed jeans were slimming and sexy. I loved them with her feminine, white lace peplum top. It’s an edgy look with a stunning twist.

You shine, Raeda!

Casual and Relaxed

You can never go wrong looking elegant and relaxed, and that’s precisely the vibe you get from Jan, who looks so pretty in pink.

This rich, luxurious, casual look would work perfectly for almost any non-formal charity event. Jan has paired lovely wide-leg pants with a beautiful, flowing sweater set for a soft yet sophisticated look. Her metallic pointed-toe shoes and silver lizard skin purse add personality and a modern punch.

You look radiant, Jan!

  1. Wow, all these ladies look lovely. I wish I could wear the one-shouldered dress like Kenna. Randy has a great vibe (although I would change the bow shoes) and Jan looks very well put together. I like Leslie’s necklace with the LBD.

  2. I think the one shoulder is pretty but too short for her age. The leather pants and top are fantastic; she looks classy but hip. The black dress is short for her age, and the bottom picture is elegant but chic. I think too many women want to look young and feel a short skirt or dress with wild hair does; we all want to look younger, but it tends to make them look a little silly, like they are trying too hard, saying, look at me! Not all clothing makes us look our best, and my philosophy is to look in the mirror and ask if I am projecting how I want to be viewed.

It's your life. Make it Fabulous!
