Every betch knows the importance of giving back to the community, but what good does that do us if no one knows about it? None of course. Which is why there's nothing more exciting (okay, there's actually a lot of things more exciting) than philanthropy season. Winter is that time your schedule takes on extra meaning, as in you suddenly find yourself going out and getting drunk and you can feel good about doing it because you did it for the kids/cancer/art museum/endangered sloths.
Naturally the most important question when it comes to charity is not where to donate your money, but what to wear while donating your money. Don't try act like you're above it, because then you would just stay home and donate anonymously. Also, these events usually have step and repeats.
Saint Laurent Illusion Dot Yoke Dress
This dress is one of the few times polka dots won't make you look like a middle aged obese woman at Disneyworld. Take advantage.
KAMALIKULTURE Shirred Sleeveless Dress
Classic LBD. Wear it anywhere.
DVF Zarita Lace Dress
This comes in like a million colors, looks extremely flattering, and chances are you'll see five different versions of dresses like this. But don't let that stop you.
Elizabeth and James Lela Cutout Dress
Cute color, even cuter if you're tan. The cutouts are great assuming you're not bulging out of them. You're supposed to be saving the whales, not looking like one.
Naven 2 Tone Bombshell Circle Dress
We recommend this one for a more casual event targeted at the younger philanthropic crowd. Unless you enjoy having men of your grandfather's age staring down your dress.
Aubrey Sequined Silk Dress by Parker
Love the metallic combined with the halter neckline. Perfect for that edgy charity event where Bono's there wearing sunglasses trying to promote iPads for Africa or like, water.
Elizabeth and James Levinson Sheer Yoke Dress
Very cute but only if you can pull it off to make it look chic and not like a nicegirl. Style with a pair of gorg sparkly earrings and big smokey eyes.
Diane von Furstenburg Achava Embellished Dress
We promise, this photo does not do this dress justice. It looks extremely chic in person despite looking like something Lady Gaga would wear in the photo. Google it, seriously.
Renzo + Kai Beaded Cami Flapper Dress
If you happen to be raising money to support a moonshine company, this dress will be perfectly in theme.
Reiss Lace Bodice Katlun Dress
For the sophisticated betch.
Jay Godfrey Mesh Neck Stress Crepe Dress
Perfect if you don't want to look slutty from far away, but you do want to look slutty up close.
Valentino Rockstud T-Strap Pump
If your dad can afford these, you have no excuse not to buy them.
Jeffrey Campbell Rapture Pump
Love. The. Green.
Dolce Vita Kadyn Pump
In case you just landed from visiting a foreign country and your cankles are not in check, these are perfect.
Remember when we mentioned pairing your dress with big sparkly earrings? Try these.
