Event season is upon us and we are ready for it. Whether you are invited for a country wedding, nuptials on a sun-soaked beach or a day at the races, Lakeside has plenty of outfit options to guarantee you make an impression as the best-dressed guest.


From statement silhouettes and sculpted dresses to elegantly tailored co-ords and cool accessories - not forgetting that barely-there underwear - whatever your style we feel sure we have something for you here in our stylish edit. Scroll down for instant inspiration.


Make It Red

It’s time to shake off the hot pink of Barbie-Mania and adjust to this season's new colour: red. It’s the colour having its moment, dominating both the fashion and beauty world (see the beauty feature in our new Lakeside magazine, p.25 for inspiration) with designers feasting on the vibrance of this standout colour. The message is go bold or go home and the high street has fast followed suit. We say embrace the trend and go head-to-toe to turn heads or add pops of colour to your outfit with siren accessories to make a daring statement.

It's All About The Polka-Dots

Make like Julia Roberts for a day at the races or polo (yes we all know THAT dress from Pretty Woman) and opt for an outfit in this pretty, classic print for ultimate feminine charm. When dressing for an event you can’t go wrong with an alluring classic and the polka dot has had a reboot for SS24. Step forward pretty summer dresses and off-the-shoulder tops perfect for those who like a strong monochrome look. Here are our favourite pieces.

Summer Silhouettes

RSVP’d for a beach wedding or a festival-style party? Adhere to a relaxed set of style rules for outfit success. Choose a halter neck maxi dress with a strapy sandal or opt for a satin slip dress in a muted tone for understated cool. Tiered fabric adds glamour to long dresses and while being more relaxed with your outfit choice you can go bolder on accessories. Wear your hair pulled back to highlight oversized earrings and layer up necklaces to decorate your décolletage. Choose a decorative clutch and make sure any shoes are wedged or flat to take on any terrain.

In Full Bloom

Nothing says summer more than a charming floral print. Master effortless elegance for your event by picking out a botanic-patterned dress in soft summer hues - we love the off-the-shoulder pieces perfect for showing off tanned shoulders - and match with pretty floral-patterned shoes, jewellery and bags. Try an on-trend sheer-sleeved dress for the perfect day-to-night outfit or a twilight wedding.

Polished Tailoring

A well-cut suit is by far the most hard-working investment for your wardrobe this summer. For a second season, the waistcoat continues to be the most celebrated but we say invest now in a three-piece and you’ll be wearing your suit or each element separately all season long. Venture away from natural tones and instead pick a sunny, summer colour or metallic fabric to stand out from the crowd - we love the Whistles three-piece in jade green, another trending colour for the season. There are also some great short and skirt co-ords in the shops that must be tried and are included in this edit.

The Modern Corsage

This is the season to add drama to your outfit. We don’t always get dressed up so why not try something a little more sculpted for your outfit when picking for this event? You won’t have to look far before you meet ruffles and corsages on the rails, decorating necklines and sleeves of jumpsuits and dresses. For a soft approach meet the puff sleeve, for something a bit more shapely experiment with off-the-shoulder ruffles and added bold accessories.
