What to Wear to Your High School Reunion

Ah, summer. Months of social activities that range from outdoor music festivals to family weddings, and for a few among you, this is the summer of the high school reunion. A time to reconnect with old pals (and impress them with how far you’ve come, naturally), the reunion, above all others, demands a chic ensemble that doesn’t come across as trying too hard.

Daytime Affair
If your class president is planning a daytime fête, choose an airy sundress (like the Three Dots dress pictured). It has an easy-going vibe that looks put-together but doesn’t feel too fancy. Pair it with a colorful raffia Mar Y Sol clutch, some walkable wedge sandals, and your go-to jewelry.

Casual Evening
So your class is more of a gather-at-the-bar kind of group. Keep your look clean-lined and refined, with a nod to current trends. Pleated Alexander Wang pants and a silk Equipment blouse feel sophisticated, yet downtown cool. Finish the look with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes and a cognac clutch.

All Dressed Up
For the fancier party, go all-out chic without going over the top. A structural Lela Rose dress will do the trick. Add a pair of envy-inducing Camilla Skovgaard sandals, a DVF clutch, and forgo the jewelry altogether. This look is streamlined, elegant, and effortless.
