In the course of a year I’m sure a lot of us would have a few events to contend with. Whether it’s a work occasion or a wedding or a milestone birthday there are plenty of opportunities to get all dolled up. So where to go with your outfit? If you’re having to pull together a look for a big upcoming soiree then look no further than the following stylish ladies for a little outfit inspo.
You can’t go wrong with a touch of gold. A slinky dress metallic dress with minimal accessories is a sleek and sophisticated way to do event dressing.
For a luxe look you can’t go past a beautiful silk or satin number. With its fluid texture and beautiful finish, it’s a way to make a glamorous statement.
When it comes to events it pays to have a little fun with your look! A riot of colour is one way to make a statement. Bonus points for sequins!
You don’t always have to have a knockout outfit to make a look event-appropriate. Expand your horizons to next-level accessories (hello sparkly boots!) to give your outfit a point of difference and to glam it up.
Suits are now definitely an on trend look for any event. But if you’re not one for a classic shade, go bold and embrace a vibrant colour for suiting that’s designed to be the life of the party.
A little tailoring goes a long way when it comes to event dressing. A gorgeous blazer and an all-white look makes for a seriously strong ensemble.
It sometimes pays to add an unexpected touch to an event look a la Elle Ferguson’s dress worked back with boots. It shows that you’re prepared to push the boundaries and be a little more daring with your style.
Dresses and events are a match made in heaven but look for strong silhouettes when it comes time to frock up. A sharp shoulder and angular lines make for a look-at-me outfit that’s also fashion forward.
Events are made for showcasing statement detailing. A dramatic train such as the one on this look is one way to take occasion dressing up a notch.
Now that we’re heading into winter, one way to take your little black dress in a new on trend direction is to work some sheer tights into the mix. It’s one way to add a glam element to any LBD.
If you like the idea of a dress but want something a little different try a shirt and pants combo. A beautiful blouse worked back with a pair of slacks is event dressing at its classic and sophisticated best.
Prints are made for occasion dressing. Work a fun print into your outfit to ensure that your look stands out in a crowd.
