What to Wear: A Night at the Museum, Pirate Ball

BY January 30, 2017

This event on Saturday, Feb. 11, takes place at—and benefits—the Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples ( Pirate-themed attire is the suggested dress code, although you can certainly go in resort wear and not be required to walk the plank. Assuming the former, here are some ideas for swashbuckling style: one, a white “poet” shirt with billowing sleeves worn with a long, full skirt, nipped-in at the waist with a wide, rustic belt. Take it up a notch and replace the belt with a waist-cincher, or a bodice with a lace-up front. Top off your outfit with a mob-cap or tricorne hat. If that’s too fussy for your taste, keep it simple with a striped T-shirt, a waistcoat or long vest, and a pair of loose, harem-style pants tucked into boots. Tie a red bandana or sash around your head and party like a pirate, me hearties.
