Wondering what to wear to an art gallery and museum? You bet!
Sometimes, we girls just need a good excuse to dress up ourselves and an art exhibition date is obviously one of them.
Whether you are an art enthusiast or not, you should always give a thought to your outfit to show your respect (And of course showcase your style) for the occasion.
So yes, your ensemble should vary depends what you are attending.
But no worries girls, I’ve got you all covered.
From an elegant art gallery opening look to a casual art museum date, you’ll be all set.
If you are ready to bring your A-game, ahead are the 10 outfit ideas when it comes to what to wear for an art gallery party.
1. LOOK CLASSY IN A JUMPSUIT FOR THE ART OPENING
Speaking of an art gallery opening that you will need to hold your champagne glass and socialize around, you want to look classy, and confident but perhaps not appear to be trying too hard.
That said, a sleek high-waist jumpsuit is such a perfect blend to look casual and sophisticated at the same time.
Pretty awesome isn’t it?
Together with statement earrings and an embellished clutch purse, you are ready to rock the night girl!
2. STAY CASUAL FOR AN ART MUSEUM VISIT
There’s no specific dress code for an art museum so your outfit ideas are basically endless.
But if that’s just a chill weekend art exhibition visit, dress down your look with a pair of comfy shoes that will never go wrong.
After all, let’s not forget how crowded the galleries can be.
And yes girl, you will have to stand and walk for hours before you finish the tour.
To make sure your visit is a pleasant one, go casual with a sleek white tee, floral A-line skirt, and high-top converse.
You’ll thanks me later.
3. GO ALL-IN WITH PRINTS FOR AN ARTSY LOOK
Well, ladies, it’s time for your printed co-ord set and snake prints skirt to SHINE.
If you are not going all-in with prints for the art gallery date, WHEN?
While a one-piece lavender water print dress can look too bold for some girls, you can always go for a subtle look with a black turtleneck, snake print maxi skirt, and sneakers.
The point is, to get out of your comfort zone and incorporate prints for an artsy look. Trust me, that’s a real mood booster!
You just feel differently!
4. WHEN IN DOUBT, WEAR A BLAZER
As the saying goes “When in doubt, wear a blazer”. When it comes to an art gallery party look, we are not talking about the ordinary 9-5 black blazer here.
No, not today.
To spruce up the look, go extra playful with a navy floral pantsuit or an oversized white blazer that screams “I’ve got my style and I ROCK it like a boss lady”.
If you really want to go for a “normal” navy blue blazer, consider wearing a bright tone like a pink floral dress underneath to create a contrast.
That’s equally flattering.
5. GO FOR A SLOUCHY SILHOUETTE AS AN ART ENTHUSIAST
If you want to look like an art designer, guess what, switch out your fitted clothes to a slouchy top and pants and instantly you look artistic.
An unconventional silhouette always exudes a sense of free spirit, spontaneity, and uniqueness, which is truly worth trying.
6. GO EXTRA POLISHED TO THE ART MUSEUM
To look extra poised and elegant, structured outerwear is the key.
Think of a classic trench coat, a sleeveless long vest, a tweed jacket, and more.
Speaking of my favorite, that has to be a cape coat.
Featuring a unique design, teaming a black lace dress with this darling and you now just look like you own the whole gallery.
Such a dream.
While the poncho is not a structured garment, I still want to include it here as it’s really classy and handy for the unbearable chilly art room.
7. MONOCHROME STYLE FOR A FLATTERING LOOK
Of course, monochrome look. If you want to look stylish, sleek, and put together with minimal effort, a monotone look is here for you.
With a similar shade of tone, your figure will look united and help you appear to be taller and slimmer visually.
These days, I wear a beige high-neck top with a coordinated midi pleated skirt like it’s my job.
It just looks sweet, delicate, and extremely body-flattering, such a perfect choice for dating!
8. BADDIE STYLE FOR ART GALLERY PARTY
Can you dress baddie for the art gallery date? Sure thing!
As I’ve said, you can definitely dress casually for the exhibition so please feel free to wear your statement rose gold necklaces and chunky sneakers!
Complete your look with a high ponytail, this is how you look cute and fierce at the same time.
9. BERET GIRL LOOK FOR A SWEET ART MUSEUM DATE
Why a beret hat? Because it just makes us feel a little bit more daring, a little bit more stylish, a little bit boyish, and a little bit like a cute explorer.
Whether that’s a date or a casual art gallery visit, a beret hat just works wonders.
A red beret hat with a black pinafore dress? This is such a dazzling French-girl chic look.
