While we adore analyzing the runways and poring over designer mood boards, we spend a considerable amount of time pondering a more prosaic question: what should we wear? Whether it’s a wedding, work affair, or weekend brunch, getting dressed for specific occasions is a constant conundrum. In the hopes of outfit enlightenment--for us and for you!--we’re delighted to present What To Wear, our weekly wardrobe guide for every occasion. This week, we'll be covering what to wear to a country club.
