MISSGUIDED:how to dress when you’ve got a thing to go to

2019 has barely begun but already the invites are flooding in. Being a sleepy girl with a busy life is hard amirite? You’re already stressing about what to wear where, and mentally combing the possible guest lists in your head to see if you can afford to outfit-repeat (the curse of tagged photos says absolutely not). In desperate need of some inspiration? Whatever the event, we’ve got you. Here’s how to nail occasionwear:
The Spring Wedding
Your heart is saying warm weather, flowers in bloom, birds singing as you sip champagne on the terrace in the sunshine. Unfortunately, your head is saying it could genuinely still snow in April. A jumpsuit in pastel shades is the perfect nod to the spring, whilst protecting you from flashing your knickers when the howling gales arrive during the wedding photos. Your outerwear is just as important as your actual outfit during the spring, so throw on a fur coat over your jumpsuit to look like the ultimate It girl, or team with a formal trench to ooze class.
The Summer Wedding
Finally, the sunshine has arrived (we hope) and wedding season is officially here. Every one of your besties is getting married within weeks of each other, and your diary is full. With so many invites and limited dolla, co-ords and separates are a great way to get more mileage out of your wardrobe. Mix and match your skirt or culottes with different tops for each event: Team with a silky cami, lace crop, or a body in a matching colour to give the impression of a dress or jumpsuit. Nobody will ever know it’s not a whole new outfit!
The Races
You and your girls have got tickets to ladies day, and you are out to nab the best-dressed prize. Most racecourses have a dress code, so maybe leave the mini skirt and sequins for your night out afterwards. The races is the perfect event to wear something standout and show-stopping. P.s. We feel like we should advise you to wear sensible shoes to avoid sinking into the grass after a few too many proseccos, but we can’t (how could you finish off the perfect outfit with anything but the perfect heel?).
The Prom
There is no night like prom night, and you are ready to say goodbye to school in style. This is your chance to take your glam girl image up a notch, and go for jaw-dropping elegance. A floor-sweeping maxi is always a safe bet, but it doesn’t have to be boring: Add a little sass with a plunging neckline or backless design. Don’t forget, prom dresses don’t have to be long. Dare to bare your pins, and shake it up a bit with a short prom dress. Something heavily embellished will turn the heads of everybody in the room.
The Family Party
It’s your grandparents’ wedding anniversary or your dad’s hitting the big 5-0. Your huge, extended family is descending on your home, and you’re already dreading Auntie Sandra’s interrogation about what your future plans are. You need an outfit that screams “I’ve 100% got my life together”, and tailoring is perfect for this illusion. Take the look from office attire to party-appropriate by trading your cigarette trousers for tailored shorts, or swapping your black blazer for bright colours or patterns. Make sure you finish off with some barely theres, or some cute mules if flats are more your thang.
