Dress Codes Explained

Dress Codes Explained

Dress Codes can be hard. While they can help you nail down a specific style, they also contribute to the question, “what is suitable for the theme?”.  We believe the number one rule should be to think creatively.  You should always dress for the setting, meaning, be open-minded. While a beach event look should feel effortless, it doesn’t mean you can’t wear a delicate gown. Another important tip of ours is to do some research.  Have a look of what the venue looks like through a quick Google search; take note of the colour’s and décor to really help you pin down your look, and as always, consider your own style!

Still feeling stressed? We’ve got you covered.  Below we’ve included a guide to help you style a number of outfits for a range of dress codes. What are you waiting for? Scroll now for the reveal!

We know, this theme sounds a little intimidating, however it really isn’t!

Cocktail attire is one of the most popular dress code choices.  It’s a balance between elegant and comfortable and allows room for all types of styles, while keeping classy and polished. Cocktail is also a perfect theme for wedding guests to follow.  Midi, tea-length or knee-length dresses are perfect for this type of occasion either with heels, nice wedges or formal flats. This is another theme where you can explore different fabrics and colours.
