The Nightmare Spring/Summer Event

Even though summer invites always allow for  plenty of time to shop I can’t believe how tricky it is to find the perfect outfit for more formal occasions - even for me with my own shops!!  So much protocol and so many dilemmas - shoes, sleeves, jackets, weather … anyway … here are a few suggestions that I hope will make it easier for you!

Personally I think you can wear trousers - I’ll be wearing these cream tuxedo trousers and a white shirt to a friend’s wedding later this month ... it’s a day to evening event so this pale coat by Malene Birger ticks all the boxes. In the evening I will swap the coat for this luscious printed skull wrap and statement jewellery. Heels by Lucy Choi are essential!

Scarf: 360 Sweater, Skull cashmere scarf, (Available in ANNA stores). Bracelet: 5 Octobre, Betim Bangle, £95Necklace: 5 Octobre, Sam necklace, £255
I think sleeveless is ok too, depending on how comfortable you are with your own arms and remember outfits always look better when you feel confident in them. This Saloni dress is a fave of mine - I particularly like print in the summer - I feel pretty and feminine - not something I‘m used to!  If sleeveless is a step too far add a light summer jacket - this one by Zara is great for layering over sleeveless in dresses in the summer. If pretty prints are too much for you then go for an understated animal print - I think this one by DVF is perfect for any do.
