If you haven’t heard, we’re throwing a party. And it’s going to be a pretty big soiree. Imagine the tropical surroundings of the Mitchell Park Domes, Wisconsin beer, and delicious eats – all to help toast the people who make Milwaukee great.

But these parties can often pose a problem (for all of us) of utmost importance: What to wear? 

And, like always, we’re here to help. We scanned our recent fashion archives to find a little inspiration and we’ve pulled together a few images that can act as guiding principles for the perfect party ensemble. Let’s get to it. 

1. Make it sparkle. 

If you’ve scrolled through the shots from New York’s Fashion Week, or perhaps you’re keeping tabs on what’s going on in Milan, you’ll note that no matter what season, a little glitter never really goes out of style. Try to balance said sparkle with neutral accessories. For example, pair a draped sequined skirt with a denim shirt and a pair of laced heels and you’re ready to go. 

2. Bring your best bold lips

If you’re staring at your closet thinking, “I still have nothing to wear,” remember this: a bold lip color is as powerful as a pair of statement heels. Pair your favorite lightwash boyfriend jeans with a crisp white shirt and heels, and then slather on a warm red tone that works with your skin tone. 

3. Accessorize 

Similar to a strong lip, whether it’s a bracelet, necklace or a fistful of rings, accessories can amplify the most basic of outfits. 

4. Layer like a player

OK, that was cheesy. But below is former Packers player James Jones, who is here to teach us about coats that can make an outfit. It’ll be mid-October in Wisconsin, so a well-tailored jacket could make a brilliant statement while keeping you cozy.
