The term occasion wear means finding the right outfits for weddings, birthdays, christenings and parties.
Luckily, it’s 2019, and event dressing has caught up with what we would actually wear on a daily basis. Here’s my tips to mastering occasion wear without losing your edge.
COLOURS: This spring I recommend you inject a big dose of pastel punch to your color-starved wardrobe. From peach to dusty pink and baby blue to sunshine yellow, the season’s sugary shades are a must-have.
Also, there's this year's beige trend. Earthy shades are chic and also packed with a timeless appeal. Think a range of oatmeal to sand and crispy white.
PRINTS: Remember to take your love affair with prints to the next level this spring. Lay your hands on flirty, retro and whimsical flower power prints to create a mini garden in your wardrobe or go for timeless polka dots for a casual yet chic look.
MAXI: Move aside, mini dresses! The prettiest and most romantic trend that rules the runways again and again, maxi dress, is here. If you don’t have one yet, grab yours now!
STYLING: It’s no secret, I love to inject a little extra into my outfits by using a wide range of accessories. They can upgrade any outfit, but don’t let them steal the spotlight; they work best as subtle accents.
Also go for layering and play on texture. Looking chic and staying cool without bulking up requires a creative eye, balance of fabrics, and just the right pieces. For instance, a pale cardigan works with almost everything. I bet it would be the handiest occasion cover-up you’ll ever buy.
Dressing in a way that rises to the occasion is easier than you might think. So, get ready to dance through the early summer in occasion-ready looks.
