A symphony and an orchestra are so similar that people mistake one for the other. Only of course for their obvious difference, which is that an orchestra is a large group of singers, while a symphony is a large piece of music that contains three to four movements.
Both events are where people go, dressed elegantly to hear people sing and play weird but melodic instruments.. We know you love these events and want to look your best like every other attendee. Don’t worry; we’ve done the heavy lifting for you.
Here are ten outfit suggestions to wear to a symphony.
1. An A-shaped short gown
An A-shaped dress is arguably one of the most popular fashion pieces in every woman’s wardrobe. You might have worn it to graduation, high school prom, a wedding ceremony, or any other place. But now you can wear it to a symphony. You can pick any style of A-shaped gown that fits your body size, shape, and personal preference. You could go with a deep V-necked gown, an off-shoulder gown, or one with short sleeves. Also, the length could be above or below your knees. Don’t go too much on accessories because you don’t want to overpower the outfit. The neckline of your dress will determine the necklace you will wear.
2. Sleeveless straight gown
This is another piece of clothing that almost every woman owns. It’s so versatile that you can wear it to all special occasions. Guess what? You can also wear it to a symphony. We wouldn’t rule out the possibility of a symphony being your most memorable occasion. Maybe that special someone took you there to pop the big question. If that’s the case, you wouldn’t want to be underdressed for the occasion. But since we can include symphony among special events, a lovely black sleeveless, knee-length, straight gown would do the magic.
3. One shoulder gown with a thigh-high slit
This is a very risky outfit to pull off. It is not for the faint-hearted, and if you don’t feel comfortable in it, don’t wear it. After all, beauty is comfort. But if you can pull it off well, you’ll attract gazes from admirers all night. This style could be a full-length gown with only one sleeve covering one shoulder and a slit in front of the dress that goes from the bottom up to your thighs. Or it could be a shorter gown, knee length, with a slit up to the thighs. If you are someone who isn’t comfortable with showing your bare skin, then maybe this option isn’t for you, so let’s move on to the next one.
Business casual attires
4. Knee-length gown with blazers
Business attire isn’t a bad idea depending on the importance of the event and how comfortable you want to be during the whole show. Unlike cocktail dresses, business attires are easier to pull off and require minimal effort and accessories. It’s also less prone to errors. So our suggestions would be a knee-length straight or flay gown with short or no sleeves. You can cover and make it appear more corporate with a matching blazer. This outfit should be paired with heels and a handbag for the extra CEO look.
5. Floral flay blouse on jeans
This is an outfit you would usually wear for a business meeting. Guess what? You can also wear it to a symphony—a free-flowing blouse on jeans for that free, easy-going look. A white blouse with floral prints paired with black jeans or an alternative, blue or yellow flowery flay top with either white or blue jeans. Shoes could be heels or sneakers. Either would look incredible and fit perfectly for attending a symphony.
6. Skirt and blouse
This is one of the simplest outfits—just a simple blouse on a simple skirt. No matter how simple it appears, a skirt and blouse can be worn in different ways to show creativity. It could be a slightly oversized chiffon blouse tucked into a straight pencil skirt. A form-fitting top with a low neckline that shows a little bit or a lot of cleavages, paired with a beautifully wrapped skirt. Or a form-fitting blouse and a flay skirt. However you choose to style your skirt and blouse, it’s going to come out great and will be appropriate for attending a symphony.
7. Shirt on jeans
This one’s for you if you don’t care whether it’s a symphony, an orchestra, a football match, hockey, or whatever. You want to be as comfortable as you can be. A shirt on jeans pants can serve for both the gents and ladies. It is a straightforward and safe outfit to wear to any occasion. No one ever goes wrong with a shirt and jeans. Be it a polo shirt, a tee shirt, or a buttoned-down shirt, as long as it is paired with jeans, it’s always on point. However you choose to style it, it’s your choice.
8. Maxi full-length dress
Just flowing, unbothered by size or body form because a maxi gown covers everything, from your neck down to your ankles. Everything in between and how they are shaped or formed is solely between you and yourself. Depending on preference, some like to add a waist belt to accentuate their waistline, which is a good idea. Some add statement jewelry to take attention away from the gown to the accessories. Some have a statement hairstyle. But this gown is for those who don’t want to worry about their outfit and enjoy the show.
9. Denim on denim
Ahhh, don’t we all love denim and all it brings to the fashion scene? People hardly go wrong with denim on denim, and we know why. It is one of the easiest outfits to pull off, and you can wear it to all events, including a symphony. Denim has evolved over the years, but every style is still appreciated and can be worn in any season. It could be a denim gown, denim jumpsuit, denim jacket on denim pants, or denim shoes (just like J.lo some years back🤣). Anyways, a denim on denim outfit stands you out in any event, and you’ll love the attention it brings.
10. Crop top on a long skirt and overcoat
It might be a cold night, but if you still want to keep up with the Kardashians, this is what you should wear. This will look good on you if you have a small waistline. A high waist skirt, with buttons in front (for style) or a high slit. Then a beautiful crop top over the skirt. It says an overcoat, but you could use a cropped jacket instead. That gives you cover from the cold while displaying what you want people to see (your tiny waistline😈). Color suggestions include a tan-colored skirt, white crop top, and blue denim jacket.
