What to Wear: The Jewel Charity Ball

Posted on December 6, 2018

The Fall and Winter seasons here in Fort Worth, Texas are packed-full of debutante balls, charity events, luxurious fundraisers and holiday parties galore. One of the most popular annual local Winter events is the Jewel Charity Ball. The Jewel Charity Ball is one of the most exciting opportunities to get dressed up each year. For our latest installment of ‘What to Wear’ we are breaking down everything formal for this year’s upcoming Ball.

Everyone from the Debutantes to the invitation-only guests come dressed in elegant formal wear from head-t0-toe. The ‘who’s who’ of the city will mix and mingle in their best tuxes, furs and gowns. If you are planning to attend this year’s party but have yet to decide on an outfit – don’t worry! There is still plenty of time to find the perfect dress, shoes and accessories for your special night.

Whether you’re headed off to the Jewel Charity Ball or have other formal-dress occasions on the calendar this season, our stylists have created the perfect guides featuring our favorite gowns, jewelry, accessories and shoes to help spark your style inspiration. You still have over a week to perfect your look – so don’t stress. Avoid waiting until the last minute to choose a look that not only makes you look good, but feel good, too!
