How to dress when you’ve got a thing to go to…

2018 is flying by quicker than you can say “omg, we’re having a heatwave”, and our diaries are jam-packed. Being a sleepy girl with a busy life is hard, amirite? You’re already stressing about what to wear where, and mentally combing the possible guest lists in your head to see if you can afford to outfit-repeat (the curse of tagged photos says absolutely not). In desperate need of some inspiration? Whatever the event, we’ve got you.

The Rainy Wedding

Your heart is saying warm weather, flowers in bloom, birds singing as you sip champagne on the terrace in the sunshine. Unfortunately, the weather report suggests monsoon type rain and electrical storms. A jumpsuit in pastel shades is the perfect nod to the summer, whilst protecting you from flashing your knickers when the howling gales arrive during the wedding photos. Your outerwear is just as important as your actual outfit during the British summertime, so throw on a cape blazer over your jumpsuit to look like the ultimate It girl, or team with a formal trench to ooze class.

The Sunny Wedding


FINALLY, the sunshine has arrived (we hope) and summer wedding season is officially here. Every one of your besties is getting married within weeks of each other, and your diary is full. With so many invites and limited dolla, co-ords and separates are a great way to get more mileage out of your wardrobe. Mix and match your skirt or culottes with different tops for each event: Team with a silky cami, lace crop, or a body in a matching colour to give the impression of a dress or jumpsuit. Nobody will ever know it’s not a whole new outfit!

The Evening Guest

So you’ve been invited to a wedding, but only the evening do – Charming! Take it as a blessing babe, you don’t have to sit through the boring part, and you can just turn up, look hot, and get your drink on. The strict wedding guest attire rules are much more relaxed in the evening, and you can have a bit more fun with your look. It’s probably still advisable to steer clear of white though! Opt for something sexy and elegant, like a maxi or midi dress. Accessorise with a glass of wine and you’re sorted.

The Races


You and your girls have got tickets to ladies day, and you are out to nab the best-dressed prize. Most racecourses have a dress code, so maybe leave the mini skirt and sequins for your night out afterwards. The races are the perfect event to wear something standout and show-stopping. P.s. We feel like we should advise you to wear sensible shoes to avoid sinking into the grass after a few too many proseccos, but we can’t (how could you finish off the perfect outfit with anything but the perfect heel?).

The Prom


There is no night like prom night, and you are ready to say goodbye to school in style. This is your chance to take your glam girl image up a notch, and go for jaw-dropping elegance. A floor-sweeping maxi is always a safe bet, but it doesn’t have to be boring: Add a little sass with a plunging neckline or backless design. Don’t forget, prom dresses don’t have to be long. Dare to bare your pins, and shake it up a bit with a short prom dress. Something heavily embellished or lacy will turn the heads of everybody in the room.

The Graduation


You’ve done it! Every all-nighter in the library, hungover 9am lecture, and last minute dash to get your coursework in on time was worth it, and you’re finally graduating university. You need an outfit that’s going to look gorgeous under your gown, but then stand out on its own when day turns to night and you’re out celebrating. Neutral coloured fitted midi dresses are always a safe bet, but why not step out of your comfort zone and stand out from the crowd with a floral jumpsuit. Perf.
