Come 12 May, Le Dîner en Blanc — the world’s best kept secret dinner party — will be returning for its 6th year in Singapore. The famous culinary pop-up event takes place every summer in cities around the world, including New York, Los Angeles and Paris, where it all began. Each year, Le Dîner en Blanc sees thousands of people gather for a one-of-a-kind soirée in a secret landmark location — all of them dressed completely in white (hence, the name).
This year marks the 30th anniversary of Le Dîner en Blanc, which means we can expect a big celebration. Not that there isn’t already much to look forward to from a night under the stars with live music, dance and, of course, good company. Click through the gallery below to see what we mean:
Le Dîner en Blanc wouldn't be as iconic as it is if it weren't for its unique dress code; guests sometimes even spend months preparing the perfect all-white ensemble. (And yes, we mean white; not ivory or cream.) Luckily for you, we've put together a bunch of outfit ideas for you to use to wow the crowd with next Saturday evening. Just remember to bring your own tables, chairs and silverware!
GIVING THE SLIP
A slip dress is perfect for outdoor picnics and garden dinners; with the right details, it can easily be elevated to the picture of elegance. Go for asymmetrical styles to keep things surprising. Don't forget your picnic basket!
HIGH BROW HIGH-NECKS
Your refined tastes should be reflected in your look, and what better way to do that than with a high-neck number? Put a fresh spin on it with a modern corset and statement jewellery pieces. Pair with a glass of wine in hand for best results.
EACH SOLD SEPARATELY
Of course, you don't have to limit yourself to dresses. A collared top and a pair of pants or a skirt — whether elaborately ruched on perfectly pleated — are an equally good way to go. Play with contemporary silhouettes to keep your outfit from looking boring.
Want to show a little skin while keeping it classy? Why not do it wtih an off-shoulder ensemble? The best part is you can your adorn your neck with a statement diamond necklace for a dramatic effect.
ONE HIT WONDER
Jumpsuits deserve more love for their versatility. The lapel ones are great if you want to opt for a more formal, androgynous look, but there are also plenty of unexpected styles to choose from such as this cutout one.
