As we leave the black ties and red sequinned dresses of the party season behind, it’s time to consider what outfit to wear for our next big event. With spring just around the corner, we’re suddenly presented with a palette of brighter colours and pretty prints.

Whether you’re attending a university ball, work party, or graduation celebration this season, planning the perfect outfit often means looking at what’s trending and balancing this out with dressing for the occasion. You might turn to Pinterest as a source of inspiration, or maybe you’ll spend some time online checking out what’s big on the catwalks.

To help, we’ve rounded up some tips to ensure you look smashing in your outfit at your spring event.


Classic elegance
If you’ve been invited to a formal event, opt for a timeless style that will slot seamlessly into the setting.

A knee or floor-length evening dress is a chic and sophisticated choice. Embrace the romance of spring with floral prints, delicate lace, or pastel hues. Pastel lilac tones featured in the spring ’24 collections at Carolina Herrera, Givenchy, and Balmain, making this a captivating hue to tap into if you’re searching for a seasonal tone that will turn heads.

For a statement look, consider incorporating gold accents. Accessorise with simple jewellery and a complementary bag to complete the ensemble.


Gentlemen can effortlessly embody classic elegance with a navy or grey suit paired with a light shirt and tie. This combination strikes the perfect balance between the traditional and the contemporary, ensuring you stand out in the crowd.

Garden party chic
Picture an enchanting garden filled with blooming flowers and softly lit fairy lights. Gentlemen, if you’re attending a garden party, elevate your garden party look with a light cotton suit. Ensure your suit and tie complement each other. Start by matching your tie to your suit. This will ensure your suit is the central attraction. However, as this isn’t as formal as a black-tie event, try teaming this with loafers, for a sleek look.

Ladies, a midi dress in flowy fabrics like silk or chiffon is the ideal look. Again, you can tap into soft colours and brighter tones that do away with the bold, dark palette we see during the wintry months. Opt for strappy or block heels to navigate the grassy terrain effortlessly.

Modern Twist
For ladies seeking a contemporary twist, a jumpsuit or a chic two-piece ensemble oozes both style and comfort. Elevate the look with statement accessories and heels that command attention.

Gents, you can go for a modern twist with a slim-fit suit in light colours such as blue or pink. Add a touch of flair with a patterned shirt and complete the ensemble with trendy trainers. This combination effortlessly merges sophistication with a youthful edge – perfect for those who dare to be different.
