We’re less than a month away from our 2019 eWomenNetwork Conference and Expo, which means there’s still time to prepare. Make sure you pay special attention to the clothing items you bring and keep in mind the activities that you’ll be taking part in. There will be a lot of moving around while engaging and interacting at the conference. Dressing for functionality and comfort is of the utmost importance to getting the most out of your experience.
If you’re feeling stuck on what to pack or just need some outfit inspo, we’ve partnered with one of our favorite brands, Peach, to bring you a Conference 101 Lookbook. Peach was founded on a simple, yet a big idea, that a lifestyle brand could help women “elevate their every day.” The mission behind the movement is to be a force for good for women by helping them to thrive personally and professionally.
Here are four looks we curated that you can purchase online or use as inspiration for your own style! Let us know what your favorites are on social media.
This look is boho-chic while still keeping comfort in mind. Start with the Modern Boho Pants in Black for a comfortable stretch all day long. It’s flowy, yet elegant silhouette is the epitome of loungewear-meets-fashion. Dress this pant up with the Pima Tank in White. It’s the closet staple you’ll wear daily and want in multiples. Finally, add a finishing, professional touch with the Ponte Blazer in Black. This outerwear is perfect whether you’re a CEO or mompreneur and works on all body types. For more flare, wear all white sneakers or a heel with a pop of color. You’ll be confident and comfortable when sitting at panels, networking during lunch, or hitting the dance floor at our Extreme Dance Party.
If you’re wanting something you can transform from day-time festivities into night-time adventures, then this is the outfit for you. First, put on the Bijou Shift Dress in Black. The stretch satin allows for a comfortable flow of movement and the best part is it’s two dresses in one, you can wear it back-to-front. Plus, you can save it for holiday and charity events long after the Conference is over. In the day time, complement the dress with the Rosa Pullover in White for a business casual look. This chic sweatshirt will be your go-to for added style and warmth twelve months of the year. For a touch of texture on both looks, add a Beaded Bracelet Stack. These handcrafted accessories are inspired by the Nepalese culture, the Aid through Trade brand set out to create a better life for the local female artisans. It’s a literal fashion statement that could be a great conversation starter.
Fashion Tip: Keep it simple with flats during the day as you’ll be on your feet a lot. Then, once the sun goes down, switch it up with heels and a metallic clutch to stand out amongst the crowd. You can dress up or dress down this look as much as you please.
If you’re keeping it cool with the vibes of summer, but want to make it Conference appropriate, then check this lookout. It’s the La Paz Sweatshirt in Indigo that captures the essence of the season. The top rotates to provide two different neckline options - yes, we said TWO again - wide scoop and v-neck for a classic or bold look. The Reya Cropped Jogger in White is the perfect bottom for summer weather. These ultra-comfy joggers are constructed in a smooth, summer-weight Prima cotton blend. It’s a “must-have” style from starting your days at work to hitting the gym up in the afternoon and ending your days with chilly nights by the lake. Top the look off with the Shoreline Tote by See Design to carry all your essentials for work, the pool or the beach. The brand was founded by Donna Gorman to combine her vision, love of pattern, passion for travel, and pursuit of beauty accessible everyday objects. If that’s not the perfect way to combine the entrepreneurial spirit with summer fashion, we don’t know what is!
Athleisure is a consistent trend in fashion due to its comfort and functionality. Peach has many options for this style, but we put together our favorite look (believe us, it wasn’t an easy decision). Start with the Prima Crew Neck in Dusk Blue for a classic top. This refined crew neck tee is ideal for work and play. Then, choose the Cabo Skort in White to keep the outfit classy without taking away comfort. It’s versatile enough for all conference activities. Finally, add the Maya Cocoon Cardigan in Heather Gray for a cozy, feminine touch. Pair with comfortable flats or trendy sneakers to finish the look. After the conference is over, you can still piece this look together for Sunday brunch or a special occasion.
Another reason we love Peach is the way they share opportunities with women from around the world. They provide women (Peach stylists) with the opportunity to launch their own fashion business by offering all the tools and training needed for success. The brand also showcases undiscovered, female-founded accessory brands each season. It’s the true spirit of being a female entrepreneur and we LOVE it.
We hope this helped you in your preparation for our upcoming conference - or at least gave you outfit ideas. Don’t forget to stop by Peach’s activation at our upcoming conference!
