  • Consider longer sleeves or cropped jackets or furs to cover shoulders in cooler months
  • Closed-toe shoes or boots 
  • Gloves (can be carried in warmer weather)


  • Lightweight fabrics
  • Off shoulder dresses or blouses acceptable
  • Millinery made from straw, sinamay, jinsin, silk abaca, raffia, crinoline etc.
