What to Wear to a Theatre

Most of us don't go to see a theatre play that often. So when it does pop up on your calendar, you can find yourself at a loss for what to wear. Choosing an attire for a theatre show night can be especially challenging for us men.

For men, wearing a suit to the theatre is always a safe bet. However, nowadays more casual attire is acceptable as well (unless the production is clearly advertised as 'black tie' or 'white tie').

A good rule of thumb to dressing for a theatre night is to dress as you would for dinner at an upscale restaurant. Remember, a lot of people have worked countless hours to put up this production for you and, as part of the audience, you should be respectful enough to wear a neat, polished outfit.

Here is a collection of looks you can recreate when going to see a theatre production.
