Occasion Wear Fashion Ideas For Now Through To Winter

The end of August into September can be a tricky time for purchasing occasion-wear. I've had tonnes of reader request emails and messages about today's post, so I really wanted to show styles that you can wear now while the weather is still mild but that you can get value for money too and re use your new outfit in the cooler Winter months.

Full skirts are one of my instant go-to styles to really be able to revamp a look time and time again. There are so many top options and styles you can use with these kind of skirts from the simply Bardot cuts as seen today, to shirt styles, sequinned tops for a more party season effect or go full Oscar De La Renta designer inspiration and pair a full skirt with a Bardot jumper or fitted turtleneck.

When shopping for events around this time of the year keep in mind colour palettes and tones; navy's, reds, darker prints, jewel tones and of course black are all items that will work time and time again. Accessories always play a key roll when it comes making your outfit more season appropriate but the colour choices just mentioned have never led me wrong.

Today's skirt is from Coast and you can find similar styles on Coast Curve also, but I've also added a range of dress options from maxi dress styles to statement reds, jumpsuits and short lengths for all price and style tastebuds at the bottom of this post.
