Celebrate Summer In Style

your guide to styling the summer event season

With the summer event season calling us out of hibernation, occasionwear and party dresses are the buzz words of the moment. Plan your calendar and your outfits ahead of time then sit back and let the excitement build!

Party Dress Style:
Colour Pops versus Colour Blocks

Perfect for garden parties, luncheons and afternoon cocktails, bursts of colour keep the mood playful when the sun is still up.

Colour popping prints fizz, making a statement with minimum effort. Try the Ophelia Dress in Bubbles - her maxi length keeps her bold print elegant.

Solid blocks of colour craft a sophisticated take on bolder shades. Keep lines clean and play with accessories to transform your look from event to event.


Use Accessories To Transform A Classic Dress

Make use of accessories to up-style a classically cut dress. Go light and bright for daytime and heighten the contrast for night, playing with dark accents to conjure eveningwear glamour.


Dress For Summer Lovin'

For tales of summer loving: weddings, christenings, bridal showers and all the joyous occasions in life, paint a pretty picture in poetic florals.

Cut your romance with a contemporary edge - the contrast of Jamila's white, cornflower and navy blues creates a graphic feel to her floral pattern.

The Shilleen Dress with her fixed-wrap front, creates a flattering sweep across the torso with a fan of ruching through the middle. Her gathered sleeveheads work to define the shoulderline while her straight skirt shapes a seductive silhouette.

Style her with a bold contrast accessories to add punch to her pretty.

Party in the Park

Sundress Styles for outdoor events

Party in the park or picnic in the sun? Go for flowing and breathable styles. Step up the styling with statement sunglasses, sandals and a chic sunhat!


Stylish Separates

The phrase 'dress to impress' does not only refer to dresses - make an impact with stylish separates.

Experiment with colour and print at your leisure by pairing a bold top with a classic bottom.

Invest in a solid pant or skirt style that will match back with a variety of colours and prints. Then have fun mixing top styles to re-shape your looks for all your summer events.
