What to Wear to BC Theatre

Live performances are in full swing, and you’ll want to dress just right whether it be dance, symphony, or any other way you support the arts. Leave the casual vibe behind, this is our chance to get a little fancy. Now get some tickets. And get dressed.



To the Ballet

What else should one wear to the ballet, if not tons of pink tulle? This tutu inspired skirt from Simons has long dreamy tiers that just seem so right for a night of entertainment, especially dance. Tulle midi skirt, Simons.


Black Goat

To the Opera

I could not resist this dragon-art cashmere wrap from Black Goat Cashmere which seems dramatic and powerful, perfect to take the AC theatre chill off during any opera performance. Perfect wrapped over the shoulders of your LBD, or to dress up a black top and pants and take it from simple to spectacular.



To Outdoor Performances

Remember, not all live performances are in the evening. That said, a sunny afternoon concert might mean you need to keep cool and sun protected while you enjoy the show outdoors. I love this Paloma sun hat, from Plenty.



To Live Theatre

Anthropologie Eyelet Duster is the ultimate coat to throw over any dress. This coat just states ‘off to the theatre darling’ making a dramatic, show stopping entrance. This bold pink is a notice-me statement shade that can’t be missed. So, wear it with confidence and prepare yourself for plenty of compliments.


Holt Renfrew

To the Symphony

Bronze Age Benzo satin bag available at Holt Renfrew, is the ideal little black bag to pair with your little black dress. Timeless, chic, subtle – perfect for the symphony.
