National Pageant Wardrobe Requirements

Get Acquainted Party:

Theme – Paint the Town Red!
Wear your choice of attire as long as its red! Fancy interview suit, jumpsuit or dress… Fun Fashion… Formal… Cocktail… your choice!

State Introduction Outfit:

During the official State Introductions, each Candidate will be required to provide a 30 second speech on a famous individual from her state. The attire should resemble the famous person. For example, a candidate giving a speech on Amelia Earhart could wear aviation attire. This is not a judged event but it will be the first presentation of you publicly, so have fun with it! Here are some examples from previous years:

Personality Projection & Poise:

Your formal gown should be floor length. It can be any color or style. The most important consideration is that it is age-appropriate. You can absolutely wear the same gown you wore in another pageant. Please remember that the judges are not looking for a dress but a confident young lady. Here are some examples from previous years:

Dress, suit, jumpsuit, or skirt and blouse that you would wear to a job interview or an important daytime occasion. Don’t forget to show a bit of your own personality but limit your accessories. Candidates competing for Little Miss (ages 7-9) and Young Miss (ages 10-12) should not wear makeup. Here are some examples from previous years:

Personal Introduction:

You will wear your interview attire during your preliminary Personal Introduction competition.

Pageant Finals Production Number Outfit:

The Pageant Finals will open with a Production Number. Each Candidate is required to wear a white or silver dress. Dresses with a combination of white and silver are also acceptable. The dress can be Sunday best or cocktail but should be no longer than tea-length. White, silver, or nude shoes are acceptable. Wear shoes you are comfortable moving in… even if that means Converse. Here are some low-cost options from our official sponsor GLS Collective and Sunny & Sass! GLS Collective Opening Number

Rehearsal Attire:

Leggings or shorts with tank tops or tees.

Downtime Attire:

As you will probably be representing your title even when you are outside of the hotel, we suggest that you dress cute casual. Jeans or leggings and a dressier top or sweater are fine but stay away from anything that appears sloppy or regular t-shirts with your sash.

New Titleholder Photoshoot:

If you are selected as a National Titleholder, you will spend the Sunday after crowning in a photoshoot! For this photoshoot, please pack denim bottoms (jeans, leggings, or skirt) and a black top (cute casual, cotton tank top or a feminine t-shirt). Black shoes to go with the denim/black top outfit and Nude or Silver heels/dressy shoes. Cute upscale casual outfit like a sun dress, jumpsuit, romper, or church dress. Color is great for this outfit. Please do not buy anything for this photoshoot as we tried to work with things people already have. If you don’t have something listed, just don’t worry about it. You can also switch out white for black tops but we prefer black if possible.

November Weather in Atlanta:

The average high in Atlanta in November is anywhere from low 60s to low 70s. Last year on Thanksgiving, it was 74°. Overnight, the low can be anywhere from 30° to the low 50s. This time of year you may use your heater in the morning and your air-conditioner in the middle of the afternoon. Layers are suggested!
