    I'm covering a dance performance for my school paper tonight, and I can't figure out what to wear. Of all the things I brought with me, I'm afraid I've backed myself into a corner.

    Here's what I'm working with:
    • Slim navy slacks
    • Slim grey slacks (med. grey- not too light, not too dark)
    • Burgundy oxfords
    • Dark grey socks
    • Black socks
    • Burgundy tie
    • Woven grey tie
    • Shiny grey tie
    • Navy button-up
    • Burgundy square pattern shirt (the squares are extremely small, though)
    • Lighter blue button-up

    I'm at a loss right now and I could use some tips on what goes with what and what my best options would be.

    First off, I don't think anyone will care what the reporter is wearing at a dance performance. But anyway:

    Slim grey slacks
    Burgundy oxford (you only listed one pair of shoes)
    Dark grey socks
    Woven grey tie
    Light blue button-up

    Burn the rest.:devil:

    True for the first point, but that doesn't mean I don't like looking good!
