When the invitation doesn't give much away, and you want to dress to impress, navigating a myriad of different dress codes can be difficult. Here, we show you what to wear, where. The most important thing to remember? Always err on the side of overdressed.

A GARDEN WEDDING

Florals are a safe bet for a wedding, no matter the setting. Look for classic shapes with subtle modern accents that will elevate to standout proportions. Blouson sleeves, spliced lace detail, and feminine fabrications each add a contemprary twist. Finish with the new trend in accessories: a woven wicker clutch, and subtle gold jewellery.

YOUR BEST FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY

Make an impact for a chic evening out with girlfriends. Not quite a dress but certainly one of our favourite silhouettes of the moment, a flattering black jumpsuit makes a statement when paired back with a gold belt and standout earrings.

AN ELEGANT SOIREE

If you prefer a more structured look, opt for something decidedly feminine, such as blush coloured lace. Alternatively, for a high-impact option, we're loving deep, rich tones of red, wine, and berry.
