Ease Back Into Occasion Dressing With These 3 Styles
If like us, you’re looking forward to celebrations again but would like to embrace occasion dressing in a more relaxed way, we’ve got the perfect balance of styles to embrace. From midi and maxi dresses for those with a penchant for all things elegant to modern co-ords and easy jumpsuits, these are the key designs on our radar this month.
Dresses to savour all summer
Our dresses are as endlessly wearable as ever, and this season, they offer a host of fresh silhouettes without losing their inherent effortlessness. Whether you’re a maximalist who prefers lively prints and colour or you lean more towards a more subtle approach, these beautifully crafted dresses are the perfect way to embrace occasion dressing once again. Choose from silk mix styles finished in a ubiquitous animal print or languid slips in soft shades, adding heels for elevated moments or a white overshirt and flat sandals for carefree days when you still want to feel chic. A highlight of the season is our Indo Floral Tiered Dress, designed in both a classic monochrome colourway and a more exuberant shade of green, with a layered skirt and frilled cap sleeves for a refined finish. Style both versions with our leather footbed sandals, which will bring comfort when events extend long into the night.
The most distinctive co-ords
As a summer of socialising looks a little more promising, as does the prospect of special occasions, we’re leaning towards classic pieces that offer practicality, as well as a modern feel. Conversational prints continue to draw our attention, and our latest Limited Edition co-ordinating top and shorts come in a captivating marble motif in a palette of earthy shades. Style the set in full to make a statement, and add tasteful touches of gold jewellery to bring out the warm colours. If you want to dress these pieces down, mix and match the top with signature denim and linen trousers, or pair the shorts with a black cami for a pared-back look. It goes without saying that our co-ords work simply with sandals and sunglasses during the summer months. Still, when toughened up with a pair of boots and finished with an oversized blazer, they will also offer trans-seasonal variations later on.
Jumpsuits for day and night
There’s no better excuse than a special occasion to invest in a forever staple, and although our jumpsuits are often understated, they’ll slot effortlessly into your existing wardrobe. We’re particularly taken with our Tie Cotton Voile Jumpsuit, which has been designed in electric blue with a tie belt at the waist, as well as wide breezy legs. This is the easiest way to create an all-done-in-one look that commands attention. For a sense of escapism on hot summer days, turn to our seashell playsuit for a spirited look that requires minimal effort and will keep you cool. Simply mix and match it with choice accessories and jewellery, depending on the invitation you’ve received.
