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.

A WEDDING

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.
