I know this is a silly question...

Recommended Posts

I have a beautiful 3 piece outfit it is a pale yellow color, Consist of Jacket, top and pants with some sequins on it. it is  very nice but I am wondering because of the color would it look out of place in the evening on board Queen Mary 2  ?

Depends whether you're male or female. 🙂

Assuming you are a male, I'd wear the 'Jacket' separate from the complete outfit and team it up with black dress trousers & dress shirt/black bow etc. 

Since Cunard changed the description from 'Formal' to 'Gala'  ( obviously a directive from Cunard's North American office) some folks (  my observations) think it's time to bring down the dressing -up box from the loft .  I've seen some sights recently , from a Victorian chimney sweep ( complete with blacken face & brush) to a Disney character with Micky mouse ears. (both adults in their 50/60's ) 😆

 

Nothing wrong with coloured jackets, I prefer to wear them for formal evening wear.

Yes indeed. Quoting from one of Jeffrey1950's posts from a year ago ...

To answer the question as I understand it, I think the outfit sounds just fine.  IMO, sometimes there are just too many black outfits, especially on a formal night.  Color is good.

Very much a female. The name Jeffrey is after a family member that passed away.

I’m new to the Cunard board so I can’t specifically answer the question related to this cruise line.

 

However, I can definitely answer it woman to woman.

There is so much black on cruises, any other colour stands out and is such a refreshing change. Honestly who doesn’t love people watching?

 

Do the cruising world a favour and wear your yellow with pride and love.

 

i hope that you’re on my cruise.
