How To Wear Evening Dresses For Daytime

How To Wear Evening Dresses For Daytime

Weddings, christenings and other special occasions may not be going ahead this summer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make use of those events dresses currently taking up space in your wardrobe. From fun sequin numbers to floor-sweeping floral gowns, here’s how to make them work harder…

Look 1

Needle and Thread’s maxi gowns are an influencer favourite. But thanks to their romantic floral prints and modest cut, they look great with summer accessories, too – a big floppy hat and statement earrings will add to that glamorous, beach club aesthetic.

Look 2

The oversized fit of this sequin dress makes it surprisingly wearable – just add trainers and a slouchy bag. A trench is the ideal day-to-day piece, so layer up in a voluminous version to enhance the relaxed feel.

Look 3

With its ruffle detail and satin finish this Topshop dress is about as pretty as it gets. Capitalise by adding girly pumps and an oversized bow – gold and burgundy accessories will stop you veering into ‘twee’ territory.

Look 4

A slip dress is easy to transform for daytime – even a sequin number. Add a tough biker, western boots and chunky gold details to make it off duty.
