Classic Gala

If you’ve never been to this cocktail and culture gala before, trust us when we say – it’s insane. Spanning four floors, two city blocks, and over ten million cubic feet of space, the opening night gala totally takes over The New York Public Library. Expect music, dancing, performances, chaos, and oh – did we mention over 25,000 cocktails?

WEAR: FOR HER

We are so in love with this baroque lace dress for summer, and it’s the perfect short, flirty thing to wear to the gala. Keep the accessories simple with a black foldover clutch and suede heels.

WEAR: FOR HIM

Navy cotton sateen – AKA the suit that looks good everywhere. Keep the rest of the look loose by ditching the tie and going straight for a white 1MX button-up.
