With the invitations piling up it’s time to address this season’s dress codes. With so many fresh outfit options on offer, nothing is off limits…
The Formal Dinner
The days of a simple LBD are well and truly over. Cecilie Bahnsen breathes life and romance into this black dress – the floral-appliquéd tulle and puffed sleeves all add to its girly charm. This simple pair of silver Stella pumps will lengthen your silhouette while the structured Chloé C mini velvet bag and Bauble Bar bow earrings nod towards an ultra feminine and ladylike look.
Lunch With The Girls
Sometimes, all you want to wear is a great pair of jeans and a fancy top. This top by Reformation has its own monochrome party going on, too. It’s knotted at bust, has an adjustable off-the-shoulder sleeve and shirred back for a snug fit. Show off your fashion prowess with a sartorially savvy bag like this metal chainmail bag from Paco Rabanne’s instantly recognisable 1969 collection.
The Office Party
A tuxedo is always an elegant and edgy alternative to a dress, and what could be better for day-to-night dressing. Tap into the festive spirit with this gold two-piece from Racil. You could team the cropped trousers with a white t-shirt and trainers or flats by day, then up the glamour ante after hours by adding the gold jacket and switching to this Maje tuxedo shirt and Jimmy Choo fringe mules. The great thing about buying separates is that they’re so interchangeable.

Well, we’re fully embracing the shine and approaching our fashion choices with the fun and light-hearted sentiment that should come with party dressing. We do go out to have a good time, don’t we!?
