Merged: Dress Codes in Poland (big corporate party) - help!

Been invited to a big corporate party in Poland - looking at the schedule for it, I guess you'd call it a ball.

What do I wear to something like this? Understated LBD or something more glam with loads of fake bling?

I'll probably be the only Brit there, and so I don't want to stick out like a sore thumb!

that sounds like quite a challenge, more than buying a new frock!

maybe some fake tan and bleached hair?

Agreed.

You might have to consider dress length, footwear and if to wear your hair up or down.

Bling is out.

Very nice are the classic polish girls' low heel sandals which make a noise kla-kla-kla when they walk.I think it is a must accessory.

I so do... I've got it down to three dresses, but now I'm stressing about the accessories.... are evening gloves going to be too OTT? Will a fascinator look too naff? And then there's the shoes....

Trouble is that I'm only going for two days, so I opted not to pay for checked luggage on the flight. This means that I'm going to have to pack everything into my handluggage....eeeek!!!

Will a fascinator look too naff?

A feathery thing that you stick in your hair - more so than a hairband, but not quite a hat.

I am sure you will look lovely....I shouldn,t worry too much about looking too different from the Polish women....Whatever you wear you will probably inspire all the Polish women to copy it , as Anything British has got to be great....As a male i do notice that Polish fashion is a bit different to English...Why not have a look at some of the Polish fashion websites , see what sort of stuff Polish women like to wear.....

LC, wear what you'll be comfortable in. The gloves are an option because if you feel overdressed you can remove them. The fascinator, only wear if you'll be happy with it.

I shouldn,t worry too much about looking too different from the Polish women

Neither would I worry about that. As I said, only wear what makes you feel comfortable and are happy with. You'll look great and most important - have fun :)

This is just the impression i get from Polish friends....its not what i think.....The young people i used to teach seem to think anything British or American must be fantastic...they cant understand why i want to live here , but to put you right..i love Poland , and many things Polish....

This is probably the best answer to your question LC.

If my experience of such parties in Poland is anything to go by, there will be a lot of very beautiful women dressed in a mixture of high fashion and the unique ecclectic style that Polish fashion tends to be associated with. Wear whatever makes you feel good and you are sure to radiate beauty and confidence :)

Check the long range weather forecast. You could get rain, snow or a nice day.

At the moment it's jeans and long coat weather. A lot of the hats and scarves are back in the cupboard though.

Depends what people you are talking about. Im sure there are a range of people in every country. I know that the polish girls in my high school (Uk) dress in short skirts and makeup 10cm thick, but it doesnt mean they are all like that.

Depends on the school. There's not one hard and fast rule, but one tendency I've noticed is for bad schools to have overly strict dress codes.

For instance - I know one school that has very high standards. They don't have a dress code - in fact, it's quite normal to see one of their teachers wearing surfing shorts, a very casual shirt and flip flops. Equally so, I know a very terrible Callan school that insists that everyone is dressed formally, even in the blazing heat.

Do you have a job sorted already here?
