Dressing up for the Occasion

All Dressed Up

Whatever the shindig or occasion, we’ve got your style guide sorted!

Summer marks the start of the season of dressing up. It’s that time of year again when you’ll be spending weekends at weddings, suiting up for the races or putting on your best frock for a good old British garden party. 


Whether you're after that recognisable Ted Baker print, or something a little more classic courtesy of Phase Eight, you'll be sure to find the perfect frock for any occasion at up to 60% less than the RRP.

The key to an occasion outfit is the accessories you choose. A designer clutch bag or delicate sandal will help to elevate a simple dress to anything but ordinary, so make sure you shop some of our favourites; Kurt Geiger, Monsoon Accessorize and Dune


Invest in a couple of great jackets. The classic navy blazer never goes out of style and will give you a too-cool-to-care, preppy air whatever your age. Or work the check trend, especially if you’re at a countryside garden party or wedding. These occasions have a more relaxed feel. A blazer or sportcoat is just the ticket to pull your outfit together and keep you warm after the late afternoon sun has gone down!

Whatever you do, don't scrimp on accessories. A statement watch courtesy of Watch StationFossil or Ernest Jones, and elegant pair of brogues will be your go-to pieces for the entire summer season.
