Toss out every idea you had about what to wear to your Bar or Bat Mitzvah. These days, it’s as untraditional as ever when it comes to fashion. Dress codes are for guests, but for the star of the show, anything goes. You’re no longer shopping for a “comfortable dance shoe;” it’s ride-or-die on sneakers. Stuffy suits? Not anymore; the guys want to show some style, wearing fabrics like velvet and denim to stand out on their special day.

That being said, it’s the host’s responsibility to execute the party’s vibe. If your party dress is called for “Casual,” we don’t recommend that you show up in a tuxedo and shiny shoes. Instead, play with different textures or pair your outfit with custom kicks so both you and your guests are comfortable.
