What to Wear: To a College Reunion

(Source: Net-A-Porter, Clare Vivier)

Whether you loved or hated college, a reunion at your alma mater is no doubt a novelty experience as four years of friends, flings, sports games, spring breaks, and classes come rushing back. The passage of time also inevitably means a change in appearance: you're all not the same 20-somethings locked in each other's memories.

Picking an ensemble for a reunion is no easy feat, since you'll want to bring your A-game. Luckily, we've dreamt up the perfect outfit to impress all your old peers.

Michael Michael Kors Wrap-effect stretch-jersey dress, $120 at Net-A-Porter; Schutz Irma Ankle Strap Pumps, $180 at Shopbop

A wrap dress is your best bet. The long sleeves, nipped-in waist, and low-cut neckline create a flattering shape that works on any body. We know you want to reach for black, but a deep magenta still looks classic and will stand out in a crowd. Plus, the jersey material of our Michael Michael Kors pick makes sure you're comfortable all night.

Accessories should remain simple yet sophisticated. We'd pair a wrap dress with ankle-strap pumps. The nude color doesn't compete with the dress and makes legs look longer.

Alexis Bittar Marquis Orbital Drop Earrings, $150 at Shopbop; Clare Vivier Foldover Clutch, $210 at Clare Vivier

Since you're keeping an open neckline, we suggest wearing elegant drop earrings for embellishment. Top it all off with a leopard-print clutch to hold your essentials and subtly let people know how fierce you've become since you graduated.
