Style Advisor: Summer Event Dressing

Event season is upon us, and we’re all wondering who will be the best dressed guest at the wedding. Step up to the occasion in pretty florals, stylish heels and the instant-outfit-elevator: a cult designer handbag. Be it weddings, garden parties, the races, the polo or country weekend escapes, these are every woman’s event season summer essentials.

THE HEELS

Let your shoes do the talking (and avoid awkward small talk with your best friend’s great aunt’s cousin) in metallic mules and strappy sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti, Gucci and Saint Laurent.

THE FLORALS

A summer occasion staple, the enduring appeal of florals is their elegant femininity. Nod to the trend with an embellished bag or come into bloom with once of Dolce & Gabbana’s rose-printed dresses.

THE SUNGLASSES

When love is in the air, opt for playful heart-shaped accessories like Saint Laurent’s cult Loulou shades. Perfect for your best friend’s wedding, a pair of sunglasses adds a touch of Hollywood glamour to every ensemble.

THE BAG

Dependent upon the level of glamour required by the dress code, a clutch or elevated handbag will transform any outfit. Candy-coloured hues of bubble gum pink and peppermint green for day transform into gilded black minaudières by night. It’s all in hand.
