Dressing for occasions can be challenging when there’s a lot at stake, so this post takes you through each dressing solutions for some of the most exciting events that summer holds. Here we go.
For a Garden Party
Garden parties are some of the best events of the year for making us love the outdoors; pay homage with a floral or botanical print that will get the compliments springing up like daisies everywhere you go.
For a long day spent outside, go for a comfortable and feminine flowy length that will keep your pins comfy all day. Go for bright bold colours, and don’t forget a pair of elegant flats to change into.
For a Wedding
Dressing for a wedding can be daunting as the location and the weather of the wedding demands preparation. Layering is key! Cover-ups like kimonos and scarves make the perfect addition to any wedding outfit – they’ll keep you warm enough to handle the breezes without being bulky.
Weddings demand happy colours – steer clear of dark fabrics and opt for pastels, florals, and not-too-dramatic prints; you don’t want to outshine the bride, now. Lace, frills, ruffles and a little flesh showing in a backless, strapless or lacy dress are all perfect choices.
For The Races
The races are a time to stand out from the crowd while at the same time as conforming to their, sometimes strict, dress codes. Think big and go for an expressive A-line dress. Necklines are yours for the choosing as long as you keep it tasteful – and you don’t have to hold back on the bold prints.
Channel your inner Kate Middleton, and get a hat or a fascinator that co-ordinates you’re your dress. Tastefulness is key here. If you’re not sure where to look for sure-fire winners of the style race, Coast is a great place to find an abundance of tasteful, feminine and bold looks that’ll make you look and feel hot to trot.
For a Work-Do
A posh work-do can present a few wardrobe challenges – how can you still look professional but ready to party? Looking too demure and business-like is awfully dull, but baring too much flesh is a no-no.
The answer is to go for a dramatic silhouette and keep the necklines high; shift dresses are your main gals here. Accessorise with statement necklaces that sit on that high neck fabric, or choose earring paired with an up-do hairstyle for ultimate sophistication.
Now that you know exactly what look to go for at these dressed-up summer occasions, get out there and enjoy the sunshine!
