So You Need an Occasion Dress?

Let the Spring/Summer event season begin!

The Ostia Dress by Reiss

Something I don’t get to show you often on the blog is my take on occasionwear. Although my day-to-day style is quite relaxed I actually LOVE a good reason to get dressed up. I’ve teamed up with Reiss for this post to show you how I find the perfect piece of occasion wear as somebody that loves comfort & a masculine touch!

You guys know my style is not typically girly, so when I’m looking for something dressy for an event or special occasion I’m very specific in what I like. I often opt for trousers and a standout top as my go-to but I always keep my eye out for a great dress which is harder to find. When I choose a dress it’s more than likely going to be in my wardrobe for a longtime between occasions, so a timeless classic piece is imperative. Reiss’ reputation for style & quality makes it an easy choice if your looking for a high-quality piece that you want to really get wear out of and feel good in! As soon as I saw their Ostia Dress I knew it was the one. It had all the elements of a great dress to me, great colour (I mean just LOOK at this beautiful rusty hue), luxurious silk, and the perfect silhouette for me with a cinched waist and beautiful asymmetric shoulder details. The silk is draped in the most flattering way across the stomach (and passed the sit down wrinkle test) & I love how the back loosely falls over my shoulder. It emphasises my good parts while hiding the parts I’m not as confident about!

This is the type of dress that I feel doesn’t wear me, I wear it. It’s relaxed and fitted at the same time and allows me to express my femininity through my body language & confidence when I’m wearing it – to me thats a great dress! Below I’ve left a section of my favourite occasion wear from Reiss in the hopes it gives you some inspiration for S/S weddings or events you may have coming up (remove ad block to view)!
