DE-CODING THE DRESS CODE

DE-CODING THE DRESS CODE

Its ball season in our house hold! If you have a daughter - you will understand that Its imperitive that you get the right dress for the occasion! I have now bought 3 'outifts' for her - all from online as she doesnt want to look like anyone else ( dont know where she gets this attitude from?) and we are hoping that she wll choose one of them and look STUNNING!

I was thinking to myself - its actually very diffiuclt to know exactly what type of gown needs to be worn to what type of occasion , so here are some guide lines:

FORMAL

A formal affair calls for floor-length luxury, think sweeping red-carpet worthy gowns in luxurious fabrics. For the boys, a black tuxedo and bow tie is a must. Keep accessories classic, with flashes of gold hardware and sleek heels, and finish with a modern up-do to impress the host.

 

LOUNGE SUIT

This dress code is often required for summer weddings, the polo or during the racing season. Dresses can be printed, bright coloured or with a hint of texture, just steer away from anything too embellished. A structured dress in a dramatic hue that falls below the knee is ideal. Match your date’s tie to your dress for extra style points.

COCKTAIL

Arguably the most common event attire, Cocktail requires a little thought and a lot of playfulness. If opting for a dress, hemlines become shorter, whilst men can choose to wear their suit with or without a tie. Cocktail parties aren’t restricted to cocktail dresses, go for a sleek blazer and pant combination, and adorn with jewellery and statement accessories for glamour.

 

GARDEN PARTY

Whether it’s an elegant lunch or afternoon drinks on the lawn, this is the dress code that allows you to embrace your feminine side. Shades of white and pastel hues look ideal under the sun, but be sure to add interest with lace textures or cut-out detailing. Minimal accessories in neutral shades are chic ladylike additions, while the boys can relax in light-coloured chinos paired with a blazer.

Hope this helps!
