Virtual Party Dressing: What To Wear At Your Next Virtual Event!

Virtual Party Dressing: What To Wear At Your Next Virtual Event!

Oh, how we miss the days of playing dress-up! With the news of a new fabulous event happening, we’d quickly scan our mental snapshots of what we had in our closets. The fun we had when coming up with the trendiest outfits to show up and show off with. Those days are, for the foreseeable future, done for and our stunning new dress we bought while in quarantine shopping mode will now be hung in our closets with nowhere to go. One of the many questions during the new quarantined reality, which has seen loungewear accepted as the new work uniform, is when on earth can we look stylish again?! Two words: Virtual Party. Yes, you heard us right. With the rise of Zoom chats, we can now get dressed up and party with all our friends online.

Celebrities, entertainers and brands have all sought to connect with customers and fans through virtual gatherings on these channels due to canceled events worldwide. Rihanna and Diplo are just two of the prominent names who have hosted parties and weekly DJ sets, respectively, offering a much-needed reprieve from the confines of home. With the ongoing pandemic, clubgoers around the world have been forced to take a brief pause and bring the dance floor indoors to their homes.

This new party scene is fun, engaging, and can help you step out of your comfort zone and off that couch. The only issue you’ll be faced with is what on earth to wear. We’re here to give you inspiration on an urban glam aesthetic with a bit of sparkle to help you light up during your virtual events.

Sparkle and Shine

In a time where everything feels gloomy and toned down, adding sparkle to your wardrobe will bring a fun and glamorous approach to any event. This is definitely not the time to be subtle with the sparkles and gems!

“We’re seeing our customers starting to shed their cozy loungewear and move toward being more playful and trendy,” said Gabrielle Conforti, chief merchandising officer of Urban Outfitters. “We think there is a desire for optimism that can be expressed in how we dress, and we’re happy to have such a robust and on-trend assortment of colorful pieces from sweatsuits to lounge around in, to flirty tops and sparkly dresses for virtual celebrations.”

Spread Love

This is the best time to spread love and positivity and why not do it with your own personal style! You can add hearts in almost any way; hair accessories, sunnies, or even handbags. In this case we grab inspiration from Fall ’20 runways.

“I’m seeing a combination of people buying the more comfy jersey sets and also the more bright and fun items — girls still want to look good and dress up for new photos,” said Kim Shui. “I definitely think wearing things that you normally would to go out, just dressing up with nowhere to go still lifts your spirits up. I think dressing up even if you’re just staying at home can help us feel a bit more normal during this time.”

Comfort Colors 

Want to be fun but not be too loud? Using soft hues is definitely the way to go. They can be comforting and calming but still fun to the eye. Adding metallic embellishments will add a fun twist to the outfit.

These are but a few of the hundreds of images we pulled inspiration from for our next virtual outing. All images from recent runway collections highlighted a range of party-friendly fashion. We hope this serves as inspiration for events and small gatherings alike — once self-isolation ends. As another weekend approaches we are sure there will be more virtual events popping up and we are so excited to see you at one of them! Virtual events have established a sense of normalcy all while blowing off steam within the troubles of our current lockdown restrictions. One thing is certain: COVID-19 will not stop the party.
