What to Wear: Dallas

Guest post from Randi Dukes aka Dukes & Duchesses

Are you gearing up for SoFabU On the Road in Dallas? If you’re like me, one thought has crossed your mind more than any other: what to wear to the conference. While I’m no expert on fashion, I do know Dallas weather. I’ve also attended a number of conferences and blogging events and can give you a few tips on what to wear to SoFabU On the Road Dallas.

While Dallas weather is notoriously warm {or even downright hot at the end of May}, air-conditioned hotels are notoriously cold. A layered outfit is your best bet for all day comfort. Since conferences mean a lot of sitting, I like to be comfortable. You can’t go wrong with jeans, cropped or otherwise, a simple shirt, and a colorful or patterned cardigan that can be taken on and off. Add a cute pair of shoes {flats for me} and a colorful statement necklace and you’re set.

Since most of us will be lugging laptops or tablets, a large, multi-purpose bag is also a must. {Be sure to carry something with room for all those business cards you’ll be collecting!}

If you prefer a bit fancier look, I’ve got another option. Slip on a maxi skirt, add a plain tank and a denim jacket for warmth, and finish the look with some cute sandals and … yep, a statement necklace. I swear by the statement necklace after having Eddie Ross comment on mine at a blogger event last summer {wink}.

Whatever you decide to wear, plan for hot outside temps paired with cold indoor temps, wear something that you feel good in, and get ready for a fantastic day of networking, learning, and fun!
