I find myself saying “Oh my God, what do I even wear to this” a lot less than I used to (Thanks, college, for preparing me for most dress scenarios), but every now and then I hit some fashion wall I can’t climb up. This happened in March with the first convention I’d ever attended, Springfest. What do you wear if you want to be comfortable, look fashionable and appropriately nerdy, and also like you’re not trying really hard to be cool but are actually trying really hard to be cool? Apparently my answer was bright yellow high heels; that answer was very wrong and painful. Learn from my mistakes–if you’re not cosplaying here are some do’s and don’ts to con fashion. I’ll be rocking some of these this weekend at Wizard World NYC (remind me to stay away from the high heels).
Will any of you be at Wizard World NYC this weekend? Did I forget something super important? Let me know in the comments.
