When it comes to dressing for an occasion or event, Dresses used to rule. BUT this season separates are having a moment. If a dress is not for you or you fancy trying something a little different when that Summer party invite drops on your door matt then read on. Today Wallis have launched their best selling Sapphire collection and we got a sneak preview plus the chance to put together looks we’ll be wearing when the next big occasion pops up.

We are long term dress fans, especially during the Summer season, and the ease they provide when putting an outfit together is pretty much unrivalled. Until now.

There are new loves in town.

Namely these perfect peachy outfits that have our names written all over them.
A tailored trouser and feminine blouse make for a stylish yet comfortable alternative for occasionwear dressing. We love the perfect peach shade of this top and the bow detail and cold shoulders give it the perfect girly edge that you know we are into. Add a white blazer for that 70s Bianca Jagger feel with some chunky platform sandals or a straw fedora and ladylike point court shoes for a smarter pretty party look.
Dresses hide a multiple of sins if you know which shape suits you but if you REALLY want to emphasise your waist, this flattering v-neck shell top and full satin skirt is a winner. Extremely flattering for all figures, we love how you can really dress up or down this structured skirt. After all who doesn’t love adding a multipurpose item to their wardrobe?!
So practical yet so pretty.
We styled both looks in a dressed down way with pastel pink trainers and canvas flatform espadrilles as we always like the contrast of making something dressy look toned down and laid back. If you are looking to go the full hog then grab your heels {nude ankle strap sandals would be great with either look} and throw a bold colour pop bag into the mix like this one or this one. When picking a dress from the high street you always run the risk of showing up as a guest and there being someone else rocking the same one. Fine if you are into twinning like us, but probably not ideal. So we say reach for the separates to really carve out your own look and add your own style and flair with accessories.
