STYLE ADVICE: I am looking for a long dress for a lunch party

Posted on: September 29, 2014

QUESTION: I am looking for a long dress for a lunch party.

ANSWER:  Maxi dresses are always fun to wear and your lunch party sounds like the perfect opportunity to treat yourself to one! For you it’s about wearing styles that have a fitted waist as this creates a beautiful feminine silhouette. With this in mind we’ve picked a selection of styles we think you’ll love:

1. Michael Kors dress, £190: – There aren’t always many occasions to wear a long dress, so we’d suggest going for a really versatile pattern/shape which can be worn for multiple events. This Michael Kors maxi has a kaftan feel about it, making it ideal to dress up for a party with strappy sandals and a clutch bag, or wear on holiday with flats and an oversized sun hat:


2. Mango dress, £89.99: – The long sleeves of this printed dress make it the ideal outfit for when the weather starts to turn. A low v-neck shows just the right amount of décolletage whilst the accentuated waist will really make the most of your beautiful frame:


3. Linea dress, £40: – We fell in love with the bright shade of this dress, it will really compliment your colouring, plus the embellished neckline adds a touch of glamour making this a really sophisticated and elegant option. Style with a faux-fur shrug to keep warm and chic:


4. Biba dress, £149: – Jewelled tones were all over the A/W catwalk for the coming season so this dress definitely fits the bill! You haven’t mentioned the dress code of the party you’re attending, so keep it simple with a pair of courts and a cropped jacket (like a leather biker style) or jazz things up with peep toe sandals and a statement necklace:


5. Phase Eight pashmina, £35: – A nautral shade wrap is a wardrobe must – wear it draped over your shoulders with the sleeveless dresses, and then team it with a white blouse and your favourite pair of jeans for the ultimate Parisian-chic outfit. Karen x
