Knowing what to wear when you are invited to an event can be stressful. We have put together some looks at outlet prices to inspire you in those “what am I going to wear?” moments.
A COCKTAIL PARTY
You can’t go wrong with a great cocktail dress, but why not wear a skirt and top as an alternative. Cocktail parties aren’t always a flashy affair. Dress up with embellished accessories and sky high heels.
STYLE TIP: Avoid casual fabrics like cotton, jersey or denim. Go for satin, lace or chiffon to create a luxe feel.

A WINE TASTING
A weekend wine tasting is always fun. When it comes to choosing an outfit it is all about being stylish and comfortable, a simple dress is the perfect choice. Your essentials are flat shoes or wedges for walking and a cross body bag, so you have free hands for tasting wine and cheese.
STYLE TIP: Wear a hat so your hair doesn’t require any maintenance during the day.
A BUSINESS DINNER
When dressing for a work function always adhere to the office dress code. If you work in a conservative environment choose to dress conservatively at the dinner too. If the event is straight after work take a pair of shoes and some accessories to change your look while still looking professional.
STYLE TIP: Add a modern twist to your workwear by choosing ‘on trend’ shapes and mix them with your classic staples.
When choosing the perfect wedding outfit let the location, time and season guide your choice. For a day wedding it tends to be less formal. Select a feminine dress that flatters your shape. Look for a style that sits around the knee avoiding an ultra short mini. Choose a subtle colour so you don’t out shine the bride.
STYLE TIP: Always remember wearing white to a wedding is the ultimate no no!
A FIRST DATE
When dressing for a first date choose an outfit that you feel great in and shows off your personality. Choose something that you have received comments on before whether it is a colour, shape, style or accessory.
STYLE TIP: Wear a statement necklace. Not only will it look great with your outfit but will act as an ice breaker giving you something to talk about.
