When we think of a Broadway Show, you think theatrics and over the top costumes. However, when you go to watch a Broadway Show you cannot wear such clothing as it is for the actors and performers there. So the question arises, what should you even wear? The answer is simple. You should dress in a semi-formal attire. However, it really isn’t that simple, is it? Semi-formal attire is a tricky part of fashion which is hard to nail. This is why we have compiled a list of the dos and don’ts of what to wear when going to a Broadway theatre. A very in fashion style these days which is totally appropriate for a Broadway show is a midi dress. A midi dress is a mid-length dress that one can easily wear to a semi-formal or formal event. If you are looking for a classy midi dress, then look no further. Not only will you get value for your money, but you will also enjoy the various designs and colours.
- Business Casual
Business casual is the look you should go for. Meaning it should be dressy, but not too much that it would look like you’ve just come for a meeting. Wearing something you would wear to dinner at your parents’ house or religious event is more appropriate for such an event. If you don’t have a dark cocktail dress, wear dark dress pants and a light coloured shirt. Make sure you do not dress down by wearing jeans or dress too much by wearing a full gown to such an event.
As Broadway theatres tend to be super chilled and cold, so it can get chilly for you. This is why it is always smart to keep an outer wear with you. You can bring a cardigan or jacket that will complement your look and keep you cosy through the amazing performance. Layers also add depth to your look and can help dress up or dress down a look that you can do according to the clothes you wear underneath.
- Comfortable shoes
Many people think that they will only be sitting throughout the event, so they should wear something that is comfortable, but also looks good with their outfits like a pair of 6-inch pumps or stilettos. However, it turns out that there is a fair bit of walking and standing involved when you go to a Broadway show. When you get to a Broadway show you need to stand in line to get to your seat. You may also have to stand in the line to get to use the restroom. All of these will make it effective to wear such dressy shoes. This is why it is suggested that you go for flats or comfortable shoes that look good, but also feel good for your feet in those long lines.
