Every year, Hour Detroit magazine celebrates the most stylish metro Detroiters with their annual Best Dressed Fashion Show party. Honoring the best dressed nominees, the event showcases not only the city's fashionable elite, but also the most anticipated fall fashions. The runway show was put on by The Somerset Collection and we saw lots of layering, amazing texture (like metallics, velvet, and fur), and some incredible holiday party looks.
And even though the weather tried to rain on our parade (with torrential downpours flooding the streets of Detroit), there was an amazing turnout of fabulously dressed guests, who didn't let a little shower stop them from bringing their style A-game. Most people stuck to the traditional cocktail attire, but there was definitely a more creative, "anything goes" vibe from many of the attendees.
For the event - which promotes the best of Detroit fashion - I wanted to be sure to wear something that was actually from Detroit (and also happened to be the colors of the Detroit Tigers). I decided to go with this mock turtleneck dress from one of my favorite local shops, The Peacock Room, but added a little edge to the otherwise sweet dress with a studded belt, sleeveless trench and booties.
Thanks to Hour Detroit for putting on a great event and highlighting some of Detroit's finest dressers! Check out the full list of all the nominees in their September issue.
