Of A Kind For Guest Of A Guest: What To Wear To Black Ties & Beer Pong At Stout

by Erica Cerulo · March 3, 2011

What goes together better than a floor-length dress and a red-plastic party cup? Though a beer-pong tournament might recall Wednesday night fraternity parties, this event at Stout benefits a worthy organization: Brooklyn Community Housing & Services. Here's what to wear to compete.

1. Thanks to its slick, glossed-chiffon finish, this dress by L'Agence should repel at least some of the beer spills that are bound to happen (and the black hue should hide the rest.)

2. Keep warm wrapped up in a colorful We Are Owls silk-and-cashmere scarf. The NYC-based line, only in its second season, gets down with secretly dark prints: This one features don't-mess-with-me skulls.

3. You don't want jangly jewelry messing with your concentration. Pop in a pair of black onyx studs from Anna Sheffield, who also designs the ever-more-popular Bing Bang.

4. These flats by Rachel Comey-who makes some of the coolest, more comfortable shoes around- are the same colors that your butt would be if you tried to partake in the night's activity in heels.
