Stylist Guide: Event Dressing

banner

 

With RSVP’s landing and December just around the corner, our stylists are here to guide you through event dressing for five seasonal occasions. From comfortable, block-coloured dresses for Public Speaking to lighter, sumptuous fabrics for Winter Weddings, we’ve got all your event dressing needs covered.

 


1. Public Speaking


1

 

 For public speaking, panel discussions or presentations, you’re going to want feel comfortable, free to move and not too hot; something in a jersey is great. Your look needs to be effective from far away so a strong silhouette and block colours work well. It’s also a great opportunity to get away from something you would wear everyday and go with something with a bit more presence.

 

PUBLIC SPEAKING

Arlington in Navy & Copper

The Arlington is the perfect power dress and one of our most flattering styles, featuring a signature sash at the waist and peplum detail to produce the perfect feminine silhouette.

Cavendish in Vermilion Red

Combining comfort with style, the Cavendish will effortlessly take you from boardroom to bar. The vibrant vermilion red is power dressing at it’s best and the crepe is light and easy to wear.

Babington in Rust Red

Make a statement in the exquisite Babington dress. Crafted in a luxurious virgin wool with a bit of stretch for added comfort; it’s rust red hue and impeccable fit can’t help but demand attention.


2. The Formal Occassion

 For formal occasions you definitely don’t want anything too corporate, but you’ll still want to feel formal and polished. Tweeds are great if its a daytime event and an A-line skirt will always feel less corporate than a pencil.

 

THE FORMAL OCCASION

Camelot in Forest Green Herringbone

A flattering and feminine A-line dress made in our luxurious wool blend herringbone tweed. The clever detail around the waist creates a stunning silhouette and makes the Camelot an easy and reliable choice for every occasion.

Eaton in Winter White

A Fold classic and Duchess of Cambridge favourite; the Eaton is our go-to for all formal occasions. With a structured silhouette, V-neckline and an extremely flattering peplum detail at the waist, it’s the ultimate feel-good dress.

Chatsworth in Mulberry

We love this flattering flared A-line dress with striking contrast detail in a beautiful rich mulberry red stretch wool blend. The Chatsworth creates a flowing, elegant silhouette.


3. The Interview / Promotion

For an interview or promotion, it’s important to not only present yourself as professional and in control, but to make sure that you choose something with a bit of character that you feel yourself in.

 

THE INTERVIEW

Blenheim in Mohair Pinstripe

Crafted in a luxurious and breathable soft virgin wool and alpaca blend with a textured mohair pinstripe, the Blenheim will keep you in comfort whilst exuding professionalism and style.

Belleville in Black & White Herringbone

The Belleville set is an exquisitely-tailored, wool-herringbone alternative to a suit. The crossover-front and defining waist suits everybody whilst feeling comfortable and luxurious. Wear the top alone, or pair with the matching Belleville Trousers to make a lasting impression.

Pembroke in Sand & Grey Check

Crafted in a luxurious stretch wool-blend in a soft sand and grey window pane check, the Pembroke is smart and sophisticated and will make you feel confident and stylish whatever the day brings.


4. The Christmas Party

This is your chance to wear something you wouldn’t necessarily wear throughout the year. You can get away with some sparkle or some frills so have fun with it. These options all have that little festive touch and will easily take you from day to night, whilst still being appropriate for a work setting.

 

THE CHRISTMAS PARTY

Carnaby in Vermilion Red

This chic yet playful shift has been crafted in a vibrant red wool crepe and is ready to take you everywhere. The Carnaby is the perfect dress to reach for on those days when you don’t know what to wear.

Clarence in Navy & Sheer Inserts

Crafted in a classic premium navy stretch wool with striking black silk-mix sheer inserts, the Clarence combines a clean, tailored aesthetic with sophisticated and elegant features for the perfect evening look.

Wren in Black & Gold Jacquard

This alternative to a suit is a party showstopper as well as being really wearable individually. Pair the Wren Jacket with jeans or the Wren Trousers with black cashmere.


5. The Winter Wedding


5

 

For a winter wedding, go for a lighter colour or sumptuous fabric. These options all feel feminine and special whilst keeping you cosy – there is no need for a jacket, just add contrasting accessories.

 

THE WINTER WEDDING

Camelot in Winter White

As one of our best sellers, the Camelot is a universally flattering and feminine A-line dress made in our luxurious cotton-based tweed.

Waverley in Oyster Pink

With an elegant and elongating design, the soft oyster pink Waverley features a feminine knot-front neck detail and waist-defining darts. We’ve chosen a luxurious virgin wool knit that has a beautiful and flattering drape.

Beaumont in Rust and Navy

The striking Beaumont dress is crafted in a navy stretch wool-base with textured rust mohair check and fun and feminine raw-edge shoulder and sleeve frill detailing.
