Perfect Attire for International music summits
Conferences such as the IMS may be of a non-formal nature but it is important to dress fittingly for such events. If you are going for the meet as a delegate, you can’t afford to wear shorts and flashy t-shirts. Men should stick to smart collared t-shirts and pair them with jeans, cargos or chinos. Polo tees are offered by brands such as Armani, Hugo Boss, and Burberry in a range of hues. You can also try linen shirts with corduroys and a casual belt.
Women representing their firm could opt for chic dresses or skirts which reach up to the knee. Casual pants from Dsquared are another trendy option which would look best with informal blouses or shirts.
For the party people, there is absolutely no dress code. In May, expect the weather in Ibiza to be warm and sunny. So you can flaunt stylish beach wear. However, make sure you carry sunblock for daytime parties!
Wardrobe Blunders During Events You Should Avoid
Many individuals wear formal attire, thinking it’s a conference, which is a big mistake. The key is to be dressed casually but not look over the top. Office trousers and blazers, oxford shoes and even ties are a no-no unless you want people to notice you and talk about your incorrect ensemble!
The IMS is a superb gathering for dance music enthusiasts globally. Don’t fret about your outfit, be casual and look your best.
