AGELESS STYLE: The event dress

We may have more weeks of winter weather ahead, but the new collections for spring/summer are already dropping in stores.

So are the invitations to big summer events. Whether it’s a wedding or a day at the races, a timeless dress is all you need. 

Here, Karen Millen gets our vote for ticking all the season’s trends (sheer, florals, black), with a nod to the S/S24 Dior collection – note the organza sleeves and neutral motifs. It’s a classic you’ll be able to rely on for years to come.

The Event Dress

  • Keep accessories to a minimum. Drop earrings – gold or silver – and a small clutch are all you need.
  • Store it in a garment bag to keep it from snagging on anything else in your wardrobe.
  • Wear now with tights, over-the-knee boots and a belted coat, making sure the hem falls below that of the dress; in summer pair with sandals.
  • Has yours got a high neckline? Style your hair in a chic updo so the overall look isn’t too fussy.
