Dressing for Zoobilation

The Indianapolis Zoo’s annual fundraiser, Zoobilation, is a only week away, and many people are still actively searching for outfit inspiration for the orangutan-themed event. What will be comfortable, fashionable, or just different? Here are a few tips & inspirations.

Sola Adelowo, Founder & Certified Image Consultant ImageCube, LLC  offers up some advice when getting ready for the Indiana’s largest black tie event!

  1. Consider orange as an accent color in a print, jewelry, shoes, pocket square, or tie. The carpet is orange, thus wearing head to toe orange on an orange carpet will be too much.
  2. Comfort is key. Keep your outfits summer weather friendly with lightweight fabrics (rayon, polyester-blend, chiffon, lace overlay, silk), and your shoes comfortable for walking around the zoo (wedges, decorative sandals).
  3. Gentlemen, for a more professional look, wear at least a jacket or vest. For a trendy touch, incorporate color accents in a dress shirt, tie or pocket square to convey your more social and inviting side.
  4. Ladies, for a more traditional look, wear a lightweight, long or cocktail length dress in any color (except black) to exude an inspirational and approachable presence. For a trendy touch, try a cocktail length dress with beading detail, nautical flair, or orange accents in the fabric.
  5. Finally, consider having fun with your appearance. Perhaps create your look around a favorite hat, watch, shoes, purse, etc. When you’re having fun you naturally exude confidence!
