Ever RSVP'd for an event and you don't know what to wear? or have you hesitated going to one because you didn't know what to wear?

It is often challenging to decipher the dress code when it comes to events. We have said what do I wear more than a hundred times...

Our best tip for you is that, when in doubt, go with elegance, simplicity and always dress to impress.

As the great Coco Chanel said “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman”, so always be remembered…

Here's your go-to guide for how to dress at different events, from weddings to parties, to everything in between.

A Black Tie Event

Ah, the black tie event. When you encounter this, think of tuxedos, long gowns, elegant sophisticated details. 

For this type of event pull out that gorgeous floor-length gown or if you opt to wear a well-tailored, chic and formal suit you may do so. 

Check out our Aria Gown from Nookie. This features an asymmetrical gown with side gathers and sexy thigh high split. Simple yet stunning. 

If you opt to wear a chic suit, we best recommended Elliatt's Highland Set. This will definitely make you feel empowered and gorgeous.

To elevate the look add elegant jewellery, high-heels, and a clutch that best compliments your look - don't over do it... 

For the Jewellery we recommend The Way's Lyla Earrings. This fringe drop rose gold earrings will definitely add up elegance to your look. 

To complete the look the Caterina croc framed bag from Olga Berg is a reliable choice. This bag will definitely elevate your outfit day to night look all the time. 

A Bridal Shower or Baby Shower

For these types of events, try garments that are flattering and feminine. Think a printed skirt and a flattering top, or a fun pair of pants and a flowy top works great for showers.

If you prefer to wear pants or a maxi skirt, pair it with our Mossman Curious Crop Top. This top has all the drama with its ruffles and has a very vibrant hue. Pair it perfectly with our Lioness Untamed Nights Maxi skirt

Or be pretty in pink with Mossman Wonderland Top and Skirt. It's in this fun and flirty hues of pink and orange and will definitely be a statement piece.

Another Option is this gorgeous Sarita Dress from Misha. This Midi Dress features a V neckline, cut outs on the bodies and an A-line skirt shape giving it a sexy feminine look.

Accessorize according to your outfit, if you already have a show stopping top, set or dress, opt for a more simple earrings, clutch, and a pair or heals or flats.

Our recommendation is this Sacha Arthur the Label Spin me Around Earrings , Olga Berg's Joelle Curved Metallic Hotfix Clutch and a pair of your trusted heels.

The Wedding Guest

For weddings radiate romances by slipping into a maxi dress. Think dreamy ruffles, a wrap bodice and a sheer. Soft hues in pastels are ideal for weddings and garden parties alike.

This Gorgeous Crazy for You Dress from Mossman is a great choice. This Peach toned midi dress is constructed with a delicate satin fabrication that exudes luxury. It’s simple and stunning all at the same time.
