Asymmetrical Edge at The Rooftop Grill at The Montage Beverly Hills

The Montage Beverly Hills is a five-star resort… meaning, guests should probably prepare to be spending five dollar signs.

If you’re going to be splurging a little (it is totally worth it), dress for the occasion. Just keep in mind that The Montage Beverly Hills has that semi-dressy, semi-not kind of vibe. A lot of times these types of places could be kind of difficult to dress for.

I usually incorporate two dressy articles of clothing and two casual items… and hope that I am somewhat successful in my judgment once I get to the restaurant!

I chose to stick to darker hues - I wore a gray asymmetrical jersey-knit skirt paired with a black leotard. This skirt is one of my favorites because the design elongates my petite 5"1 frame and (I think) makes my legs look a teeny bit longer than they actually are. To pull it all together, I wore my leather jacket (FYI: You will see me wearing my leather jacket with countless outfits very frequently… it’s my go-to and hard not to incorporate into all my looks)! I paired with my black suede peep-toe fringe wedges for that perfect mid-morning appropriate but still looking fab at 11 am type of look. To my fellow regular brunchers, I know you can relate to this!

The Rooftop at The Montage Beverly Hills dress code is trendy casual. From where I sat at my table, it was the perfect spot to people watch and observe what they were wearing.

Some side notes: If you’re lucky enough to have the super popular Dior “So Real” sunglasses, The Rooftop Grill is the perfect place to wear them. I saw a few people with them in passing – Obviously they're the Quays and Ray-Bans of BH…

A lot of the guys there wore button downs, collared shirts, and blazers. All were of springy colors of course. Why would you ever wear a dark color in the transition period from winter to spring, anyway? (Oh, wait... me). 

If you’re heading to The Montage BH and you’re stuck on what to wear, think of the three C’s: crisp, clean, and chic. Here, if you're dressed pretty simple but put together, you'll fit right in.
