Here’s How To Be Stylish When You’re Hosting

Mia Colona

When hosting an event, it’s important that not only the space is gorgeous and the food is delicious, but that you feel great as well—and a big part of feeling good is looking good. Our favorite southern style star recently hosted our Box Of Style event in Nashville and her outfit is perfect for entertaining friends. We’re showing you inside the event and how Mary Lawless, the blogger behind Happily Grey, styled the Cleobella cape from our Fall Box for a night of cocktails, music, and fun. 

The Look

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, belts are the ultimate styling tool in your arsenal of accessories. Mary proves our point in a major way. She defines her waist in the oversized capelet by belting it closed over a white shirt. Paired with light denim, the look is casual but polished. She finished it off with dainty gold jewelry and a great bag. For more petite figures, we suggest wearing the capelet open over a tee with a mini skirt and flats or cropped skinny trousers with heels.

Beauty Tips

@happilygrey

There’s no need to pile on the makeup if your skin is already glowing. Maximize lashes with mascara and add color with blush and a sheer lip stain. Finish by twisting and pinning your hair up to keep strands out of the way while you’re serving guests.

Keep Guests On Their toes

@kyliemorganmusic

Whether you surprise them with s’mores or a goody bag, a little flair goes a long way. For our Nashville event, it was only fitting to surprise our guests with a musical guest so we tapped local musician Kylie Morgan to perform. Her look—a metallic Rachel Zoe dress, stacked jewelry and effortless makeup—is great to recreate if you’re hosting a special occasion or a more formal seated dinner.
