STYLE ADVICE: Need a great dress for under £100 for an all day black tie celebration

Posted on: December 16, 2013

QUESTION: My in laws are having a golden anniversary celebration in Jan and we are getting dressed up (guys in tuxes) so we can have photos taken. It’s an all day celebration so not really a long dress occasion, can you suggest an outfit please. Prob looking to spend no more than £100 on a dress.

ANSWER: The celebration you are attending sounds like a lot of fun and the perfect opportunity to dress up a bit glam!

1. Untold, dress £81: – A peplum style is incredibly flattering and will accentuate your petite waist – a firm favourite of actresses like Charlize Theron and Kate Hudson. Winter 2013 is all about deep tones, so this aubergine shade is absolutely spot on! Team with either sheer or black tights and a pair of court shoes and remember to keep all accessories simple to avoid miss-match prints:


2. Closet, dress, £45: – You’ve mentioned that red is one of your favourite shades to wear, so we’ve selected a cowl neck shift which adds a soft feminine touch to the tailored structure. Pop on a cardigan or chic blazer to cover your arms:


3. French Connection Dress, £60: – Colour blocking is a clever way of creating a flattering silhouette and you’re one of the lucky ones who can pull off this slim fitting style! The monochrome tone allows you to wear any of the wonderful jewelled coloured clutch bags available on the high-street:


We adore this Turquoise clutch from ASOS clutch £28:


4. M&Co Dress, was £79 now £50: – As the celebration is in January, you may want to opt for a long sleeved dress rather than adding a shrug over cover-up to keep you warm. This red lace number will look fantastic all year round and can be jazzed up with a pair of drop earrings or your favourite necklace:


5.Lipsy Dress, £60: – We spotted this gorgeous fuchsia dress in your ‘liked’ items – ideal for this occasion and will look lovely against your fair skintone. The embellished neckline adds the perfect amount of sparkle and the hemline sits appropriately just above the knee!


We hope we have helped with your fashion query, do let us know how you get on as we love receiving feedback. Have a wonderful time at the celebration! Karen x
