Here is my challenge, I’m packing to fly to LA to attend the AICI (Association of Image Consultants International) annual conference. What should I wear?
Packing for an Image Consultants Conference
April 30, 2009 by 28 Comments
The dress code is:
Business attire is appropriate for daytime conference programs and evening events.
May temperatures range from an average high of 81ºF/27ºC to an average low of
54ºF/12ºC. Be sure to bring a wrap, as hotel meeting rooms can be chilly.
There is also a Gala Dinner where Red Carpet formal wear is expected.
So what do I bring? What is LA businesswear and even US businesswear these days? How would you interpret the dress code?
What colours should I choose? Can I wear black, or is that a no-no in the OC?
The conference goes for 4 days – yes imagine the stress of having 500 other image consultants assessing you for your clothing choices! 4 daytime outfits required, plus 2 evening outfits (1 formal, 1 not).
I’d love to hear your thoughts.
