What to Wear to an Autumn Dinner Party

I am so excited to bring to you a new feature every Wednesday called What Should I Wear?  I will give you different scenarios and also tell you ideas of what I would consider wearing to the event or show you what I wore to the event…then ask for your ideas.  I am kicking this off with an autumn dinner party in my home for three couples.  And, for a casual dinner party, I love the idea of wearing leggings with a creative tunic.

Over 50 Feeling 40 What Should I Wear to a Dinner Party

Bryn Walker has always been one of my favorite brands especially when I am feeling creative and want something a bit more fun.  This velvet tunic is gorgeous and so comfy…perfect for an in home dinner party…and a perfect partner for leggings. Whenever I wear a Bryn Walker top, I always size down or it will be very voluminous. I have styled it with my bronze cuff and bronze flats by Cole Hahn…both are pretty old workhorses in my wardrobe.  (By the way, my husband looked at these

This works for comfort…style…and confidence for me.  I am so confident wearing a look like this and I know it will get a lot of wear in my wardrobe.  I also like caftans for in home dinner parties.  I just like to select something that communicates casual elegance because I still want to feel like the hostess but be at ease doing it.

When I have dinner parties during the week, I set the table the night before so it is ready when I get home from work.  Then if my outfit is simple, like the one I am wearing here, it will not take much time to slip into it.  I really prefer to change and be more “at home” than my work attire allows. During autumn, I make sure all my “pumpkins” are in a row so that the meal is easy and ready when guests arrive.
