Occasion Dressing: What To Buy & Wear For This Year’s Events

From Ascot and Henley to wedding and Christening season, the months ahead are full of events. If your event wardrobe is less than perfect, turn to MATCHESFASHION; the brand's spring/summer offering is full of relaxed slip dresses, high-drama puff sleeve gowns and pretty floral designs - so there’s something for everyone, and every occasion. Here’s our edit of the looks you need, wherever you’re headed…

The Look: Formal

Ganni, Staud and Self-Portrait are all delivering suitable black-tie options this season. We love this 60’s inspired, square-neck design – add bejeweled heels and pearl details for a traditional approach.

The Look: Party

Sequins are no longer the reserve of festive parties – pair with silver accessories for a surprisingly summer-appropriate look. If you’re after something more subdued, turn to MATCHESFASHION’s statement footwear and bags to pair with simple black dresses.

The Look: Pretty

This look works, whatever the summer event may be. Beulah is a particular hero – we love their ageless, pretty dresses paired with bold accessories for an unexpected twist.

The Look: Sexy

There’s a time and place for something a little sexier, and lace-trimmed slips, liquid satin halternecks and curve-inducing black gowns all work for the occasion. Layer with a white blazer for dinner, and bare arms for the party. 

The Look: Beachy

Colourful slip dresses are perfect for warm weather events this summer – and Rat & Boa is an affordable name to know. Add appropriate accessories – think touches of gold and lashings of raffia, and a fun hat.
