One of the Summer’s most anticipated events Dîner en Blanc is right around the corner. If you aren’t familiar the best way to describe Dîner en Blanc is a huge all white, elegant outdoor “picnic” in a public space. A tradition that originated over 30 years ago in Paris amongst friends has grown into a highly coveted must attend event across the world. You can’t just buy tickets. You have to be a member or invited by someone. I attended my first dinner last year and it was truly an experience. This is the third year for the DC area and it is officially sold out! Next Saturday, August 27th, 3500 people will be donned in all white and ready to dine at a secret location. Don’t end up like Bey standing in your undies trying to figure out what you’re going to wear at the last-minute.
As the name suggests all white attire is a must for this dinner. No Ivory, Cream, Florescent Beige or any other color is permitted. Elegant dress is suggested and absolutely no athletic gear. The list of do’s and dont’s, plus what you have to bring goes on and on. But trust me this event is totally worth it. Let’s just hope this extreme weather goes away otherwise we’re all gonna die from heat exhaustion. Here’s some all white outfit inspiration so you can get your “lewks” together.
If you’re in DC and still need a designer dress to wear for the evening check out Rent The Runway in Georgetown. They carry designers like BCBG, Herve Leger, Halston, and Opening Ceremony for as low as $60. Rent the dress of your choice for 4 days and return it for free after the weekend.
