What To Wear: Craft Alliance Makers Ball

This weekend, the vast community of St. Louis artists and crafters will come together for one of the most entertaining gala events of the season, Craft Alliance’s Makers Ball. The creative event calls for an update to your average black-tie/gala wardrobe options and we have you covered with a few ideas on how to craft your perfect outfit palette.

Pretty Painterly: It is an art event after-all, so busting out pieces that resemble a painter’s palette is both welcome and encouraged. Try mixing locally made accessory pieces (you can find a killer selection at places like Craft Alliance and Plowsharing Crafts) with an equally attention-grabbing cocktail dress and feminine accessories to complete the look.

Artistically Inclined: Makers Ball

 

A Work of Art: Using the art of origami as your inspiration, a shapely and structured cocktail dress pairs perfectly with a hand-painted leather satchel, Picasso-inspired heels and statement jewelry. Bonus points for shopping local!

Cross-Stitch Chic: Taking your grandma’s hobby to the next level, a hand-crochet blouse (you can find some great options at SKIF on The Hill) mixed with a bold, striped skirt, fun, color-blocked heels and pops of red will impress even the most fabulous. The best part? All of these pieces can be mixed and matched seamlessly into your daily wardrobe.
