Special occasion outfit ideas

Home  /  Fashion  /  Special occasion outfit ideas

We have been lucky enough to have been asked to lots of weddings this year so I have spent quite a bit of time in search for occasion wear outfits. I said I may as well share some of my tops finds and tips.
 Accessories
A good trick is to buy a few neutral accessories and a plain blazer/jacket/cape. These little extras dress up your outfit and keeping it neutral means you don’t end up having a load of random jackets, clutches and head accessories that will never again see the light of day.
This gold headpiece and these pearls clips are good examples of hair accessories that can be re worn lots if different ways.
Gold Leaf Crown

This plain white box bag with rose gold detail has also got a lot of outings this summer. It’s out of stock so have linked a similar one (pictured below)  here.

Cream bag with gold hardwear
Finally my beloved white cape. I have worn this to every single wedding. I draped it over my shoulders for the ceremony and usually took it off after that depending on the wedding. This was a great buy. I have linked a similar one below.

Skirt and top
I tried to pick pieces I which I could re wear in different ways when I was buying outfits for example this white skirt, I re wore this casually with sandals and a cardigan.

Dresses

Asos dress
I love the flow of this dress, more casual pieces are becoming more popular for weddings recently, this one definitely ticks all the boxes.
I would pair this beautiful dress with white sandals and a low loose hair style and maybe a discreet gold leaf crown.

I also spotted this stunning satin midi dress in & Other Stories. How gorgeous is this. You could pair this with white sandals, a gold bag and accessories.

A nice slip dress, this is a good one because you can rewear it with a jumper and belt and a pair of runners during the day.
River Island slip dress
I love the colour of this River Island one. I would pair it with a gold crown, gold shoes and maybe even a gold chain belt.

Trousers and Top

Crave Closet Skirt
Next up is the trouser and top combo. Is it important to get a really well fitted trousers if you are going for this look.
I would go with a smart box bag and white sandals with this look.

 Jumpsuits
Reiss White jumpsuit
Lastly, the jumpsuit. You can’t go wrong with a well fitted jumpsuit. I saw this fabulous one in the Reiss sale. Obviously you can’t wear the ivory to a wedding but it also comes in a lovely chocolate brown. I would pair it with barely there sandals and gold accessories.

The Extras
It feels great to look your best but it’s important to be comfortable as well. There is nothing more annoying than painful shoes or stick on bra’s that won’t stay on. Here are some accessories which may come in useful for your special occasion.
Secret Weapons Stiletto Stoppers
These heel stoppers are great for me as I wear my Louboutins to a lot of weddings to get the wear out of them but the heel on them is very skinny. If you are at a wedding with an outdoor reception it can be nearly impossible to stay upright without these little gems. You can buy them here.
As you can see from earlier pics in this post you can’t wear a regular bra with a lot of the outfits I have worn to weddings. Here are some alternatives to a regular bra.
Secret Weapons go low
Secret Weapons nudi bra
Secret Weapons Invisilifts
Buy them here and here and here.
Secret weapons fold up flats
Lastly fold up shoes, there is no need to stop the dancing when you have these lifesavers in your bag. Buy them here.
