DRESSING UP THIS SUMMER

We are currently enjoying a lovely warm season and with that, there's plenty of opportunities to dress up. I’m talking about weddings, the races and lots of summer parties. Thankfully the shops at Johnsonville Shopping Centre are full of special occasion options, catering to the skirt and top, dress or pant suit wearer.

If you are looking for a classic dress, to add a lovely set of accessories for a race day or wedding, take a look in MAX. I love the simple Classic Shimmer Dress with nice sheer arm coverage. For a bit of fun and a longer style, how about either the Blue Midi Drape Dress, or the Sleeveless Shaped Hem Midi Dress in a pretty print - Ideal for a summer garden wedding. If you are heading to a hot spot for a party, MAX also has a lovely Lace-trim Playsuit which, with killer wedges from Hannahs and tons of silver jewellery, would make you the star of the night.

Jacqui E also has great structured pieces that can be switched between dress up and work. I really like their nice Fitted Pencil Skirts with say a pretty Peplum Top. If you added a fascinator, heels from Banks or Hannahs, and a chunky statement necklace, you would be race-day-ready.

If you have a lovely pair of dress pants, how about taking a look at the Crepe CDC Buckle Top in Pagani. Super pretty with a drape at the front that will skim the tum. Pagani also have a fabulous Pant Suit this season, and a lovely Black Lace Shrug that you can add to any pieces you already have at home. What a find! I also love the range of accessories in store, everything to take your outfit to the next level, from pretty pearls, to chunky metallic. Those of you wanting to stay on trend this season, should check out the leaf elastic headband to give your outfit a distinctly festival look.  

Gloria’s is always an excellent choice for beautiful pieces for going out. They have a huge range of brands which specialise in well-cut clothing with fabulous fabrics. Verge in particular has some lovely coloured, patterned tops this season and Scope has been a long time favourite of mine with flattering dresses, dressy well cut trousers, pretty tops and gorgeous jackets.

Remember that this is a great time to enjoy dressing up. These occasions are fun and your outfit should reflect it. Choose colour that makes you smile and cuts that flatter your body shape. If in doubt, always accessorise to the nines to give your look the finishing touch which announces to the world that it’s a special event outfit.
