One Brilliant Summer Gala Guide - Featuring Fashion Student Shelby Hudepohl

Suzanne Mauro

As the weather gets warmer our social calendar gets busier.  We at One Brilliant our sharing our Going-Out Guidelines & Style Tips so you can master a party-perfect look every time.

When stepping out in the evening, whether for an intimate dinner or posh party, always dress to keep your poise. Respect the suggested dress code, but style it in a way so you don't feel over or under dressed.

The highly anticipated Killer Heels Art Exhibit at The Frick Art & Historical Center from June 11-September 4, 2016 will be an event not to be missed. This exhibit will feature nearly 150 historic and contemporary heels on loan from the renowned Brooklyn Museum.

If you want to garner lots of attention at this amazing event, we at One Brilliant have the prefect look. We just love these Boa Crochet Wide Leg Pants by Twenty $158.00, paired with the Letter Press Painted Top by Nic & Zoe $198.00 both available at One Brilliant. (pictured above)

Don't forget accessories, sometimes they can be the focal point of your outfit and the most talked about subject.

Consider comfort first, you want to look sophisticated, sexy and chic, but if you are uncomfortable in what you are wearing it will show. 


For a summer festival look try this Luna Luz garment dyed skirt $168.00 paired with the Bailey 44 relaxed hand dyed top $128.00 both available at One Brilliant. (pictured above)

Experimenting a new look is encouraged, but road test a new look to make sure it works for you before you get to the party.


Find an outfit or dress that fits well, do not go to tight or you will be uncomfortable and do not go so loose that your figure is lost.

We just love this one-shoulder dress by Nanette Lepore, $298.00 available at One Brilliant. Nothing but basic, makes this a classic look. Add an accessory to make it uniquely you.  Earrings $138.00 available at One Brilliant.

No matter what you wear, go with it and forget about it at the door. Being self-conscious and worrying about your look will detract from the fun you should be having.
