Feeling dull and down? Get yourself up and race to a Broadway show for a super entertaining time full of music. Dressing up for the occasion will chase your worries away and make you feel more enthusiastic. Choosing outfits, however, can be confusing. Although Broadway shows do not have a specific dress code, which means you could wear anything you wish, you may still want to pick something catchy. Let’s admit it: At the end of the day, we all want to look desirable, right? A wide variety of choices is available. We can categorize them according to the season, the time of day, etc. For example, a wardrobe for winter wouldn’t be the same as that for summer. You definitely wouldn’t wear a fur coat to a Broadway show on a scorching summer day. That sounds scary! So, let’s take a look at what to wear to a Broadway show.
HOW TO DRESS FOR A BROADWAY SHOW DURING SUMMER
1. For a matinee Broadway show
Matinee Broadway shows usually take place during the afternoon. We all know how angry the sun can be during that time. Wearing anything over the top or in layers on these events can be horrifying. So, let’s start with something basic and casual.
For an afternoon matinee show, try a pair of jeans with a casual top, which will keep you cool as well as make you look cool. You can carry a purse or shoulder bag (the latter will likely be more accessible). Pick a high heel shoe and wear sunglasses to complete your ravishing look. I recommend avoiding over-ripped jeans. Instead, choose a pair of stapled jeans, which will make you look more sophisticated.
2. Simple yet classy for a daytime Broadway show
If you feel that jeans are too plain, go with a mini skirt or short dress. They are perfect for a summer afternoon and give you an ever so sexy appearance. Choose a boot or high heel and pick a big earring. This look is appropriate for the scorching heat and will make people in awe of you.
3. Wear a jumpsuit to a Broadway show
Jumpsuits are highly suitable during the summertime. A simple off-shoulder jumpsuit with a vintage watch will create an exceptional look. On the other hand, if you are off to a night show, a sleek black jumpsuit will make you look sophisticatedly sexy! I suggest a high heel with such jumpsuits because it boosts the beauty of your look. As for bags, you could pick a small purse or a color-coordinated shoulder bag, both of which will suit your look well.
4. Wear a crop top to a Broadway show
Crop tops are on-trend without fail. To look ravishingly sexy at a summer show, don a crop top with sleek jeans. Tie your hair up into a bun or a ponytail and pick oval earrings with a choker to accentuate your summer show look.
WHAT TO WEAR TO A BROADWAY SHOW DURING THE FALL
5. Wear a shirt to a Broadway show
If summer is killing you, but you are way too excited about the Broadway show to let the weather infect you, grab a sheer shirt and couple it with shorts. This is a remedy for the heat and a sizzler look – kill two birds with one stone!
6. Try something funky for a Broadway show
Broadway shows are fun and entertaining. To embrace that ambiance, pick a fancy short or funky dress. It will attract eyeballs and make your Broadway experience a bit spicier. Wear a pair of long boots or high heels and embellish the look with a pair of unique earrings.
7. Try a vibrant suit for a Broadway show
Add a little color to your life and dress up in a vibrant suit. It creates a formal, yet quirky look, which is perfect for an entertaining Broadway evening. Wear a bracelet and get yourself a pair of heels – simple, sophisticated, and classy!
8. Wear a vintage outfit to a Broadway show
Vintage never goes out of style because “old is gold,” right? Choose a vintage look like a simple jumpsuit or a long skirt. Don a cap and carry a small purse. As for footwear, you can select a heel or boot. Both go perfectly well with this look. You can also wear a simple necklace to enhance your appearance.
WHAT TO WEAR TO A BROADWAY SHOW IN WINTER
9. Wear a poncho to a Broadway show
Ponchos are almost always desirable, especially when you absolutely cannot decide what to wear. Just wear a poncho with jeans or leggings and you are done. The look is effortless and effective. In winter, you can wear a poncho over a top, with a simple cap. A poncho is especially desirable if you are insecure about any part of your body, as the poncho falls loosely. So, in winter or autumn, pick a poncho and rock the Broadway look!
10. Wear a coat to a Broadway show
When winter arrives, the fashion game reaches its peak. You can slay the style game with a coat and boots. For a winter show, wrap yourself up in a fine coat and get your feet inside those boots to create a ravishingly modern look. You can wear long earrings with the coat, but even if you don’t, the coat will carry you.
11. Blazers are perfect for a winter Broadway show
To ensure you are comfortable enough to enjoy the Broadway show, you must dress according to the weather. Just before winter approaches, the weather is usually tricky. A coat makes you hot while wearing just a top makes you cold. What can you do in such a situation? Put a blazer over your top and wash all your headaches away. A blazer with a pair of jeans and boots or sneakers is voguish and elegant.
12. Wear a fur coat to a Broadway show
Level up your winter fashion with a fur coat. Steal the Broadway look and slay with a pair of jeans or leggings. This works in cold weather and gives you a dashing appearance. Complete your look with a sneaker or boot.
WHAT TO WEAR TO A BROADWAY OPENING NIGHT PARTY
13. Wear a cocktail dress to an evening show
Shine at the Broadway opening with a glittery cocktail dress. Wear a long earring to compliment your dress and look ever so hot. To blend amazingly with your sparkling hot dress, carry a glossy purse and wear a shiny heel. Now you look like a twinkling star!
14. Choose long gowns for a Broadway opening night party
Gowns never disappoint! Wear a light-hearted and soft-colored gown for a chirpy look, or pick a dark-colored matte gown to look hot and spicy. I suggest heels with these outfits because they’ll look hot!
15. Pick a Disney costume for a themed Broadway show
The most exciting thing about a themed Broadway show is the opportunity to dress as your favorite character. Disney characters like Elsa and Snow White are popular princess looks. You can also choose a Cinderella costume or any other character. Isn’t that exciting? Your Instagram will explode with likes and comments.
As discussed, a Broadway show does not have a specific dress code. You have full liberty to choose your look and make a strong fashion statement. These suggestions are only a few options among the vast choices available. Shackets, tank tops, T-shirts, etc. are all fabulous choices. How sizzling you look depends upon your choice of clothing combination and accessory selection. So, do your homework and keep your style game higher than ever!
