Summer is full of events, from the races, to parties, galas and balls. These high glamour events are enough to make even the most die-hard fashionable woman into tremble with panic. Well, never fear, Swide is here with some stylist suggestions for you.
That special event requires a special dress. Nothing is more show stopping and gorgeous than a beautifully fashioned red dress. The strategic ruffles make the satin shimmer, the mermaid silhouette will emphasize that figure while the passionate deep red hue will make every man blush when they see you.
Eveningwear always causes a problem when it comes to cover ups- a coat, a stole? A little something to keep warm is important, even during warm summer nights, but you don’t want cramp your style! In comes the cape- the super hero solver of eveningwear cover up dilemma. Choose a long lace one to make a statement, or a shorter version for just a hint of extra glamour.
When wearing a full-length dress shoes should not be an afterthought. Only a small part of the shoe may be visible, and surprisingly, this makes the choice of the shoe even more paramount to get right. Height is a pre requisite when wearing a gown, no heels are your best friends. A black satin sandal with high heels and platform is always a smart choice. But the Alexa pump with 14cm heel and platform, completely encrusted with crystals and a Cinderella bow at the front will make you the belle of the ball.
At the sort of parties where a gown is required all you need to carry with you is your favourite lipstick. So when it comes to bags, the smaller the better. A Miss Ginger box clutch embellished with crystals is ever so much on trend right now. Or for a classic Dolce&Gabbana look, go for the macramé and choose a mini pouch with multi coloured crystal clasp.
