Dress Up - Special Occasion Fashion

Every now and then an occasion or event comes along and us gals like to get dolled up and looking our best. Ive had 6 wedding this year so I feel like I've tried on every dress the shops have to offer.





From the races, to weddings, christenings or even a graduation it can be hard to find the perfect outfit.

As seasons change we keep up with trends on a daily basis but when it comes to occasions timeless looks are always best.

Picking a timeless dress or outfit and putting your own stamp on it with accessories is the best way to get the most out of investment pieces for occasions. Occasion wear doesn't have to be expensive but sometimes it is nice to splash out!

There have been so many weddings over the summer and there are still more to go. Here are some of the outfits that might give you some inspo if you have an occasion coming up!


This green jumpsuit is from Coast. The fit is flattering and elegant. The sleek lines make this super chic while the flow of the material means it is still a soft and romantic look. The wide leg and wide shoulder mean that your waist is showcased in the best way possible as it looks like the smallest part of your body and the bow detail on the waist is feminine and pretty. Shop it here.




This beautiful floral dress is to die for. The shape of the dress hugs you in at all the right places. the cold shoulder and frill detail on the front is very on trend this year and the tropical print is just something a little different if you wanted to change it up from florals. The slit in the leg is sexy and means you can show off a stunning pair of shoes too! I also got my mam to open the slit a bit more to show off more leg :) it is so handy having a dress maker in the family. This dress is also from Coast and you can get it here.


This style of red dress with bright coloured florals is such a staple. Having a dress like this on hand will get you out of so many last minute situations. It is timeless and very easy to style, you just need to put it on and it does all the work for you once you have a nice tan as a base! Keep your shoes and accessories simple and let the dress do all of the talking. Shop this gorgeous dress from New Look here.

The last wedding of the year and I had to make a last minute dash to the shops the day before the wedding. If you didnt already know I am super last minute and I feel like I work well under pressure. There is method behind my madness too, I feel like the later I leave it to find a dress the more likely it will be brand new stock and no one else will be wearing the same.



I feel in love with this floral dress from Zara, something a little different but definitely on trend. I like to call this one granny chic haha. Shop it here


For some more occasion wear inspo have a look at these five different styles of dresses that would turn heads anywhere!

Keeping in mind all shapes and sizes there is hopefully something for everyone in here!


This colour is everywhere and it is obvious why - it is stunning! What a gorgeous colour to wear to an occasion with a dark tan. Any colour accessories would go with this but gold or rose gold would be super classy. I simple drop down earring and a small clutch bag and you are good to go. The detail on the front of the dress just makes this a show-stopper. You are guaranteed to have people asking you all about this dress! Shop it from River Island here.


This beautiful red dress from Nasty Gal is so feminine, it would be perfect for a wedding. While the colour is bold, the flow and frills on this dress make it romantic so there is a balance of style that come together beautifully. Lace up black heels are a simple way to finish off this look that you could wear time and time again. Shop this dress here.


Sticking with the bright colours this embroidered strappy midi skater dress is timeless. If you invested in this you could wear it year after year, event after event. Mix and match it with a variety of accessories to change the look every time. This colour is gorgeous on dark haired girls! Shop this dress from Boohoo here. 


This dress isn't for the faint hearted but would definitely suit tall girls with athletic bodies. The one shoulder bow detail and split in the leg make this dress a winner. It is super simple and it would be best to keep the accessories simple too. A barely there shoe will help to elongate the leg. Shop this Missguided dress here.


If you really want to invest in something stunning this Ted Baker dress is one to consider. This is so elegant, feminine, classy and a beautiful colour. The shape of the dress would suit most body types and if you click through to view more photos you will see the detailing is done in rose gold which makes teaming accessories with this dress really simple. Have a look and shop here.

Happy shopping!
