What To Wear: NAB Show

Apr 1 2014, 1:59pm CDT | by

The National Association of Broadcaster’s is hosting its annual NAB Show, April 5th to 10th, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Over 93,000 media and entertainment professionals are expected to attend.

NAB Show’s 6-day conference and expo is a forum hosting film entertainment professionals from all industries sharing their knowledge and skills on development, management and delivery of audio and visual content across all mediums. As most industries now recognize the importance of skilled use of audio and visual in creating image and message, the NAB Show is well attended.

As for what to wear, the event welcomes conservative, creative and casual attire. I recommend taking into account your role and objective at NAB Show when thinking about your personal style options. For example, as a guest speaker, you may wish to dress up more since you’re part of the entertainment or, as an employee working an exhibit booth, it is acceptable to let your company shirt or logo colors direct the rest of your outfit. As an attendee, you may want to look more polished if you have an important meeting scheduled or more casual if you simply plan to walk around and check things out.

There is often overwhelming amounts of visual stimuli at NAB Show, so I can understand why most guests opt for soothing neutral color palettes, especially black and white.

Here are two inspirational outfit ideas for you – each support your go-to color preferences, but I chose to add a few modern twists to update the look for the spring season.

The white eyelet blouse adds some visual interest to the otherwise traditional lightweight semi-casual black pant suit. Omit the blazer all together or simply push up or roll the sleeves to further relax the look. You could even trade the cotton trousers for a pair of denim jeans. Note the comfy modern two-tone, ankle-strap flats and the pastel mint green small crossbody bag – both on-trend for spring, both allowing for ease of movement throughout each long eventful day.

The vertical-striped, collarless shirtdress in neutral tones would be ideal if you’re a guest speaker at this particular event, but even if you’re not, you could easily swap the trendy high heel sandals for a lower version or even flats for extra comfort.

Madewell Latticework Shirt $110/ J.Crew Bristol Cotton Trousers $98/ Dorothy Perkins Relaxed Blazer $55/ Gorjana Cornwell Stud Earrings $40/ MICHAEL Michael Kors Bradshaw Mini Chronograph Watch $250/ Forever 21 Easy Faux Leather Crossbody Bag $15/ Madewell Beatrice Ankle-Strap Skimmers $110 Loft Collarless Stripe Shirtdress $75/ Gorjana Taner Shimmer Stud Earrings $40/ MICHAEL Michael Kors Large Lexington Chronograph Watch $275/ Coach Leather Tote $258/ Vince Addison Peep-Toe Bootie $395
