Dressing for the theatre is a delicate balance of looking fashionable and feeling comfortable. A woman’s outfit should be appropriate to the event, but also feel like an extension of her style.

Dress to impress

Dress for the theatre is a lot like a dress for any other special occasion. Know your audience, know your venue, and know yourself if you want to get it right.

When considering theater attire there are several things to keep in mind:

  1. The type of show (opera or musical),
  2. Dress up! A suit is always appropriate for men while women can either go with something elegant like a skirt suit or dressy but casual attire such as slacks and blouse combo.
  3. Dress code at that particular venue (formal or informal),
  4. Your style – what will make you feel comfortable and confident?
  5. What the weather is like outside. It’s always best to be prepared with an alternate outfit just in case the weather changes from when you leave home until when you arrive at the theater.

Choose an outfit that complements your figure

Theatre attire is typically more formal than day-to-day wear, so while your typical summer dress might not cut it at night in front of all those people (plus air conditioning), there are plenty of other options that will make you look both beautiful and comfortable as well as fit into the occasion.

You’ll find that theatre attire isn’t just about what the actors are wearing; it’s about how everyone attending is dressed. It sets the tone for your whole experience. To avoid being under or overdressed, there are some simple guidelines to follow: If an event starts at 7 pm or later with dinner served beforehand, wear cocktail attire (cocktail dress and shoes); if it starts at 6 pm or earlier without dinner before.
