I got to see a few Broadway shows on a recent quick trip to New York. (Spoiler alert: they were overwhelmingly wonderful.) I love getting dressed up for theater but also have to keep practical limitations in mind, namely that my entire trip's worth of clothes has to fit in a carry on and that formal Broadway attire isn't the norm any more. I try to bridge the difference. Here's what that meant this time around.
Bright trapeze dress + boyfriend cardigan + tights + flats
Graphic tee + patterned midi skirt + (comfy!) heels
In the first look, the cardigan gives the dress a more relaxed vibe. In the second, the skirt takes center stage and elevates the t-shirt. Both make a fun yet chic statement for a night at the ballet.
What do you wear to Broadway shows or to the theater?
