Of a Kind for GofG: What to Wear to Jazz & Gris-Gris at the Boom-Boom Room Tonight

by Erica Cerulo · January 12, 2011

An event that brings together horn-fueled New Orleans music, ridiculous Manhattan views, and one of the slickest venues in the city requires a fine-tuned look—one that’s swingy and fancy at once. If you’re heading to The Standard tomorrow night to support NOLA restoration, here’s one ensemble that will bring the house down. - -

This belted number from the new go-to line for easy-to-wear, chilaxed dresses, Electric Feathers, has a full skirt that makes it great for dancing along to Dr. John (and any after-parties you’ll hit later).

All the cool girls—Kate Bosworth, Jessica Alba, S.J.P.—are trading their Manolos for the fresh, bold shoes by the twentysomething designer Nicholas Kirkwood. This coral-y pink hue is seasonless and makes any neutral getup look really special.

The fringe effect keeps this clutch from Felix Rey (a line named after the doctor who treated Vincent Van Gogh after he sliced his ear off) young and fun, and the rhinestones mean it’s dressy enough for any event that could land on your calendar.

For any gathering with a New Orleans theme, you should B.Y.O. beads, and this colorful strand from Yochi Design can be layered with all kinds of more classic chains and pearls if you so desire.
