What are occasion dresses?


An occasion dress is a gown, slip or frock that works for any occasion, from formal events to wedding guest dresses and everything in between. It can cover long dresses but midi and short styles can be suitable for occasions too, and if you want to embrace a shorter style like a cocktail dress then that’s fine too!


There are various styles and you can go for feminine floral occasion dresses or choose demure skater styles or a swing occasion dress for a flirty take. Or go classic and chic with a shift occasion dress that looks great with ballet pumps like Coco Chanel or a simple pair of heels.


Who should wear occasion dresses?


There are no body shapes or figures that should consider an
occasion dress off limits. It doesn’t matter what your body type is or how confident you feel about showing it off, as there are so many different styles and types of occasion dresses that you can wear to feel great in.


Finding the right occasion dress for you is simple, and you can find the perfect open to look and feel great in.


Choose a fitted occasion dress or a bodycon style if you want to show off your shape or use a style like a bardot occasion dress or a wrap dress to show off your shoulders, cleavage and décolletage. 


When should I wear occasion dresses?


Occasion dresses can work for all events from weddings to black tie evenings as well as for cocktail parties too.


One of the main calls for the perfect occasion dress is for a formal event, and you can choose a classic fitted shape that works for work affairs as well as trying out different styles and colours too. Occasion dresses come in all colours and
prints, so if you want to go for a neutral tone in a cream dress or a navy style then there’s plenty to choose from. Yet if you want to go for a daring style with pink occasion dresses or purple, or even gold and silver styles.


They can also work all year round, there are summer dresses for every type of event as well as longer and more modest styles that can keep you warm in the colder seasons too.


How should I wear occasion dresses? What pairs well with occasion dresses?


There are a few classic ways to wear your occasion dress that will make you feel confident, such as a black and white dress with a simple pair of heels and a bold red lip colour.


Style up your occasion dress with heels, a clutch bag and statement jewellery for the perfect evening dress look.


Technically your dressed up style will usually call for heels, but there’s no reason why you can’t pair it with sandals, flats or even trainers if that’s the style that you prefer. Bonus points for showing off your personal style in a way that works for you!
