What To Wear To OPRAH?

Further to the Oprah Reservation Info Sheet Dress Code that asked us not to wear all-white or all-beige, I started to do my own research. I've been studying the audience at Oprah shows and apparently I'm not the only person who has googled "what to wear to Oprah" because I found some helpful information from stylists!
  • Bright colors look best on camera.
  • Try to stay away from white, beige, black.
  • Red is a great TV color.
  • No shimmer, or checks, or small patterns, or stripes.
  • Find an interesting top and accessorize with jewellery or scarf.
  • Be sure you wear well fitted clothes, not too baggy not too tight.
  • No short men don't want to risk showing your underwear or lack there of.
  • Dress in layers if cold outside.
  • Comfortable shoes.
  • Small purse, downsized to necessities (ID, $, lipstick). Large purses are not allowed in studio
  • Just as important is fabulous hair, and picture perfect make up - waterproof of course!
Why do I care? Some say nicely dressed, pulled together guests have better chance of being seated better. Honestly, I just want to look, feel and be my best so I can fully enjoy my time with Oprah and be completely in the moment. I've been able to get shopping a few times and here are the start of some outfits that I'll choose from. Let me know what you think!

1. I really like purple on me, and I like that this jacket is fitted, but is it too much grey? If I choose this outfit I'll get a bright purple scarf, maybe a broach too!

2. This out fit screams spring! I love the pink!

3. Turquoise is my secret weapon color. This sweater is so bright. I would like to find some sort of blouse to put underneath it to make it more interesting.

4. Can you see the funky detail on the bottom of this Jessica Simpson shirt? It's pretty cool, but the jacket is dark so great for night out in Chicago, but maybe not the Oprah Show.

What do you think? Are any of these Oprah worthy?


  1. I really like #2 and #4, I think they both look nice and springy, not too much, just enough. Good luck, and have fun!

  2. Oh this is so much fun. My vote is for #2 though I do like the turquoise. Let us know what you decide.

  3. I love pink, but all are very pretty.

  4. I like #2 best. The first purple top is cute but it's not workin with that jacket. The turquoise sweater has potential it just needs something? A vest with a funky brooch or something?

  5. I like #1 with the scarf and brooch idea. And I like #2. Good luck!

  6. I like #2 and #4 best. I think I like #4 best of all....very sophisticated, but fun.

  7. My vote is for #2, I love pink and it looks great on TV!! Can't wait for all the Oprah details! Have fun!!

  8. THANK YOU for all your comments in helping figure out what to wear to OPRAH. It really helps to have other opinions!! I've gone shopping one last time and posted some updates...
