14 Gala-Appropriate Pieces That Don't Cost a Fortune

Shopping Picks

It’s not every day you get to go to a gala, so if you find yourself with an invitation to such a coveted affair, you may be what to ear. Fret not, that’s where we come in.

A typical gala is a formal affair, often held to support a worthy fundraiser, charity event, and other special occasions. Gala etiquette calls for an evening dress, sleek heels, a small clutch bag, and statement jewelry. In addition to following the dress code, it’s just as important to feel comfortable in whatever you choose to wear.

For example, if you aren’t a dress person, swap in a sophisticated jumpsuit. The same goes for heels: Don’t get caught wobbling in über-high heels if you aren’t used to wearing them—opt for an embellished flat instead. No matter what you decide to wear, this is your chance to go all out with the glamour. So how much is too much? Here are a few styles to help guide your search.
