5 Outfits For Summer’s Big Occasions

Got weddings, christenings and everything in between on the agenda this summer? Save the faff of scouting multiple stores for occasion looks with House of Fraser. The high street stalwart has everything from black tie dresses to garden-appropriate heels, statement earrings to romantic maxis, so there’s something for every event…

Black Tie Function

Black tie dress codes call for sophisticated edits, so look to a monochrome colour palette for a smart feel. Black accessories keep things understated, whilst sparkly earrings add a dose of glamour.

The Races

The races are the perfect opportunity to have a bit of fun – no one will be offended by your bright colours or quirky accessories. We love this Chi Chi mini dress for holiday too – team the smart investment with nude accessories for a demure approach.

Wedding Abroad

Whether you’re headed to Santorini or Sardinia, weddings abroad are the perfect opportunity to embrace ultra-feminine shades and cuts. Stick to a pale pink palette for an elegant finish, adding block heeled sandals that will carry you through cobbled streets or across grassy patches in style.

Day-To-Night Events

For those events that kick off at lunch time and last well into the evening, practical dressing is key. That doesn’t mean compromising on style, however – try a cold-shoulder navy dress for wearable style points, with a chunky heeled shoe for guaranteed comfort.

Countryside Do

Country weddings require that illusive smart-casual balance, so look to pretty floral dresses teamed with subtle accessories for an effortless edit. Statement gold earrings add that much needed glam factor.
