There’s nothing quite like a new attire request, like ‘Concours Casual’, to make even the most in-the-know fashionista shake in their on-trend boots, block heels, or flats. We are requesting attendees of the 2nd Annual Park Place Luxury & Supercar Showcase to dress in Concours Casual wear, a perfect (albeit previously undefined) garb request for a luxury lifestyle and car showcase of this magnitude.
To help shed some light on what to wear on October 13th, we partnered with Highland Park Village, the presenting sponsor of our first ever LIVE Runway Show, to give you key insights into planning the perfect Concours Casual outfit to enjoy a full day of luxury fashions, high-performance cars, and indulge in local bites and refreshments. See below for the expert tips for Liz Thrash, Director of Personal Shopping at Highland Park Village.
How would you describe “Concours Casual” Attire?
“Being fashionable and keeping in mind the setting is key – guests have the unique opportunity to see hundreds of the world’s most impressive vehicles along the Four Seasons fairway, so finding a look that’s sensible given the turf and elements, but also striking, is what the day is all about. Focusing on statement accessories is always a simple way to have high impact. Think bold handbags that are easy to carry, earrings that provide the wow factor, and a flowy dress or low block heels that will make the day that much more enjoyable”
What are some key trends, we should be aware of as we transition into fall?
“It’s safe to say animal prints and western are definitely in! Also, both of these are great for transitioning looks from day to night, so working in pieces of both – whether through cowboy boots, or a belt with great detailing, or a pair of leopard print heels – will be the key to mastering a couple of this season’s biggest trends.”
What are some suggestions for attendees of the October 13th event?
“Again, comfort will be key so that you can enjoy every aspect of the event, but take the opportunity to elevate key elements – a light, but well-tailored blazer for the men (Zegna’s collection is perfect for the man who appreciates incredible tailoring, but with an athletic edge), a loose, yet bold dress that is easy for all-day wear, and even versatile clothes for kids (The TOT has the cutest clothes for the littlest auto enthusiasts)!”
Accessory must-haves for the day of the event?
“Make sure and grab a handbag that is easy to wear and carry – something that will has a shoulder strap is perfect. Sunglasses are a must, and the possibilities are endless!”
Finally, can you give us a quick preview as to what our spectators will see on the runway at the showcase?
“Highland Park Village’s Fashion Show will be featuring an incredible mix of looks for every style — from the colorful and youthful pieces from Alice + Olivia, to the approachable and eclectic mix from MARKET, and even the polished hand tailored touches of Hadleigh’s. An array of looks will be captured on the runway and we can’t wait to unveil this season’s fabulous collections! Our hope is that guests can experience a small part of the true and charming essence of our historic shopping center through the incredible brands that bring it to life, and then join us in Dallas for dining, shopping and more! ”
Our last note to complete your showcase ready outfit is to add the most perfect hat (think derby-esque and high-fashion) and enter our Haute Hat Contest.
