Glam up for this year’s Dîner en Blanc with these style tips (PHOTOS)


Mystery isn’t the only thing cloaking this annual white-clad dinner party!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Dîner en Blanc it is, first and foremost, a dinner party that takes place at a different location around town every year – a location that is disclosed to participants at the last minute.

The concept originated in France, and the main thing to remember is that all guests must wear an all-white ensemble. No off-white, cream, or ivory shades allowed!

With Victoria’s iteration of the event fast-approaching (July 27th, folks!), you’re sure to see people scrambling to find an outfit – so we’re here to help you avoid the struggle.

Making a statement

When it comes to dressing up for Dîner en Blanc, it’s either go big or go home! Trust us when we say that you’ll want to stand out among the fashionable crowd, so don’t be shy to accessorize.

Dress up your outfit with white gold and silver accessories. Boas, hats, fascinators – sky’s
the limit as long as it’s white.

Remember to bring a jacket or shawl. Layering up is important, as it can get fairly chilly during the evening. And, as always, comfortable footwear is the key to enjoying the evening to the fullest!

Mayfair is where it’s at 

Whether you’re on the hunt for a white skirt, pants, shoes, accessories, or an entire ensemble, Mayfair is where you can find it all under one roof!

With stores like Aritzia, Le Château, Banana Republic, American Eagle, and so much more, there’s no way you’re walking out without a stunning Dîner en Blanc outfit all ready to go.
