After Work Fundraisers and Galas

For professional evening functions like fundraisers and galas, conservative cocktail attire is a safe way to go.  DC is an especially conservative town, so if you really want to be appropriate you can't go wrong with a cocktail dress or suit in a great color or special fabric like silk.  Save the skimpy, strappy, short, and low-cut dresses for less solemn occasions, and stick with a classic LBD.  With work social functions you should always dress more seriously and more conservatively than you normally would.  This is what LBDs were invented for, so go with a classic silhouette that doesn't expose too much skin, and dress the look up with a fabulous pair of earrings, a bracelet, a clutch and a moderate high heel (keep it under 4" to be safe.) The goal is to look elegant and professional, as well as dressing appropriately for the event.  Here are some lovely options:
