Even if you’re simply getting started with the Google Arts & Culture app, there’s always a chance that you’ll be attending an art show—especially if you live in a city full of culture or you happen to be in the creative circle. For a night that’s all about celebrating someone’s creations and the accomplishment of showing in a gallery, you don’t want your outfit to take away from the night, but you’ll definitely want something chic to wear.

To ensure that you’re prepared for the time that the moment does arrive, we tapped Jacquelin Napal, co-owner of Art Angels in Los Angeles, to give her best fashion-forward advice for what to wear. “We always suggest keeping in line with a sophisticated and sexy look. You cannot go wrong with a black or white pantsuit, chic button-down with a fun skirt, or the perfect midi dress accompanied by a great pair of heels and statement-piece accessories that you can use to infuse color, dress up an outfit, or pull it all together,” she says. Let this be your creative motivation and then shop some of our favorite pieces that’ll make you look just as good as the art.
