Re­gard­less

Hong Kong Tatler - - The Great Debate -

of the oc­ca­sion, it’s re­spect­ful not to com­pete with your host in the wardrobe arena. Un­less it’s a birth­day you’re at­tend­ing, aus­pi­cious, happy colours are strictly re­served for the hosts. For wed­dings, reds and most metallics should be re­served for the bridal party. A naive client of mine once wore a most an­gelic salmon draped jer­sey gown to her best mate’s wed­ding, match­ing the out­fit with a to-die-for an­gel skin coral parure. Ev­ery­one else’s thank-you note came with a beau­ti­ful photo of the guests with the bride and groom but, un­be­knownst to this client, the bride had taken of­fence at her pretty dress, think­ing she looked too at­trac­tive. To make her dis­ap­proval known, she sent the guest a black-and-white copy in­stead. So if one doesn’t wish to be re­duced to 50 shades of grey, be re­spect­ful, be smart, and don’t steal the spot­light from the host­ess that evening. At­tend in re­spect­ful and sexy black.
