How To Style For The Theatre For Under £115

Friday, 18 July 2014

Welcome to my second Little White Challenge! If you aren't sure what this is about, (read the full story here or read the last post here), to summarise, I randomly pick an occasion and a price limit and have to create an outfit, with pieces from the high street whilst sticking to this limit. This week I have been given £115 to spend on 'A Theatre Look'. With any sort of occasion, big or small, I always want to make an effort with what I am wearing. Even though there is no official dress code for the theatre, except for a premiere or gala, I think it's nice to have an excuse to dress up and look fancy for an evening of watching a beautiful performance.

When choosing the outfit, I didn't want it to be overly dressy, but something that looks elegant; an outfit you can transition from day to night with just a simple change of accessories. The dress from Warehouse is an 80's style lightweight woven dress with a batwing sleeve. What drew me to the dress was the intense red colouring, the beautiful fit, and the dramatic cut of the sleeves; classic and sophisticated. The price was only £52, which I think is great value for a dress which can be worn from day to night. With a high square neckline, adding any accessories would be distracting, but I wanted to include a necklace to add detailing, so I have chosen a long chain with a faux pearl oval pendant from ASOS. The shoes from Pull and Bear are a black pointed toe court shoe with an ankle strap, which are £15.99 (on sale from £29.99) allowing me £35.01 to spend on accessories! I didn't want to continue with the black theme, nor did I want to bring in a white (both simple and easy colours to help compliment an outfit), so instead I have gone with a neural nude clutch bag from ASOS. As the accent colours from the bag and necklace are gold, I've added a chunky coil ring from ASOS and delicate circle knot ear-rings also from ASOS. A bracelet is necessary with a long fitted sleeve, but you could wear a stack of gold bangles. I have completed another challenge with £3.01 to spare - Wooo! Maybe you could treat yourself to some ice-cream during the interval (I'd rather go for the ice-cream than the bracelet!). This is such a perfect outfit to look and feel elegant and sophisticated for a night at the theatre.
