Wedding and garden party invitations piling up and still nothing to wear? Here is our style guide to looking chic at events this summer.
Words Charlotte Adsett
Events are a mainstay of the summer season, but dressing for them can be a minefield, especially when your diary starts filling up and there are copious sartorial ‘rules’ to abide by. Take the opportunity to invest in some key pieces, from dresses and hats to shoes and bags, that showcase your personality without breaking the mould, and you’ll breeze through an array of soirees.
We’re particular fans of Nicholas Kirkwood for wow-worthy shoe candy and Gina Foster for timeless-yet-contemporay fascinators. On the dress front, Erdem and Peter Pilotto lead the way for pretty lace pieces, while Dolce & Gabbana once again champions the fitted frock.
