From Wimbledon to Ascot, garden parties to weddings, this month Hello! Magazine’s Web Editor and blogger, Alex Light, is talking through her top tips for occasionwear dressing.

Look 1 Occasion

It’s that time of year again: wedding season! I somehow manage to have eight – yes, you read right, eight! – this year so it’s time to do some serious outfit planning… Especially because you simply will not catch me re-wearing a dress!

I love this super pretty, floral number. It’s formal enough for a wedding or a day at the races but is so comfortable to wear – something you can struggle to find with occasionwear.

The cold shoulder detailing adds a modern touch and the cinched-waist fit is oh-so-flattering. I paired it with these gorgeous Kara lace heels… I love the sensible heel size – you can wear them all day without your feet being in total agony! The outfit is a match made in heaven…
