Occasion Wear Outfit Ideas

occasion wear

Hello everybody and happy Friday!! I hope you have all had a really lovely week. This weekend I am actually heading away to celebrate Lorna’s (@lcscloset) birthday. The girls & I are off to Newport in Rhode Island and I’m so excited to for a fun, chilled weekend and a little break from my laptop too -not going to lie! We leave in a few hours but before finishing up for the week, I wanted to share this post I have been working on for you guys. As we are heading into a very busy time of year for various events (weddings, graduations, communions etc), I have been getting a lot of questions about occasion wear outfit ideas. So I figured it would be a good idea to put some options & ideas together in one post for you. I have actually been on the lookout for an outfit for a wedding I have coming up in July and I know how hard it can be to find something so I really hope you find this post helpful…

A dress is definitely the first thing that comes to my mind when it comes to shopping for an event but as we all know it can be very hard to find something a little bit different or one that stands out from the crowd. I came across the below options which I think would be perfect for any Spring/Summer occasion. I’m not the biggest ‘floral’ fan but this dress from Asos looks so delicate and pretty (perfect for a summer wedding) and although I know a lot of people would steer clear of black clothes coming into Summer, I also love the look of this ruffled dress. More ideas below…

There is something so classy about a jumpsuit and they can be a really comfortable option for a long day out at a wedding, for example. For Spring/Summer I especially love a white one like this stunning wide legged one from Asos & this bardot style one. Here are some more lovely ones I’ve come across…

Something I definitely need to invest more into myself are skirts. I think the best thing about buying one for an occasion is often times you will get many more wears out of it rather than a dress or jumpsuit because you can mix  and match it with other tops and change the outfit completely. I really love the look of this white leather one (would be so classy on) and this gorgeous peplum style one.

I hope this post gave you some inspiration for any events you have coming up.

Happy shopping and I hope you have great weekend! Be sure to follow along on my weekend away on Snapchat (@Retroflame1) and Instagram (@Retroflame).
