Looking for a dress for that summer invite but not convinced you’ll wear it more than once? Make one-hit wardrobe wonders a thing of the past with three of our most versatile dresses, and find out how the right accessories can take them effortlessly through event season and far beyond.
1. Print Story
A printed midi dress can be relied upon to make an impression at any summer event, from race days to weddings. For grandstand glamour, wear it with a tonal feathered fascinator and wedged heels –stylish and unsinkable. When wedding season calls, statement block heels (as seen in Grazia) make the perfect plus-one for the dancefloor, while a simple suede clutch promises endless wearability.
2. All White
Simple yet refreshingly chic, the white dress is a true warm-weather classic with endless versatility. Take it to sun-soaked summer picnics with a straw circle bag (the favourite accessory of SS18), keeping the look cool and comfortable with a simple pair of sandals in a metallic finish. When it comes to starry nights in far-flung destinations, an embellished clutch and strappy heels in soft pink are the perfect way to add further polish to this otherwise relaxed design.
3. Ruffle Up
A black dress for summer events might not seem like the most obvious choice but when styled right, can carry you seamlessly from day to night. Opt for a ruffled number that feels so right for the new season, ensuring that it’s city break-ready with natural textures and lemon-yellow hues for a pop of colour. Off to a garden party? Dress it up with platform wedges and a statement clutch with plenty of stand-out appeal.
