Our Head of Buying, Felicity Brand, talks us through her guide to dressing for every event this festive season.

 

What's the event?

 

A day out on the harbour.

 

What would you wear?

 

My ideal dress to wear on a boat is the Alessandra Dress by Ciao Lucia. It's super flattering and easy to wear, the perfect dress for being out on the water. I love how details like the exaggerated sleeves and a floaty silhouette can make a simple piece really stand out. 

 

How would you style it?

 

This dress is great as it's really easy to style up or down. For a boat party, I'd keep things simple and pair it back with some natural accessories like a raffia hat by Lack of Color, a pair of sandals from BY FAR and a simple gold earring. 

 

What's the event?

 

After work dinner and drinks. 

 

What would you wear?

 

The Sienna Jacket and the Patsy Short by Anna Quan. I'm a big fan of great tailoring and this short-suit set is perfect for a look to take you from desk to dinner. The jacket is slightly elongated through the body and sleeves and cut to accentuate the waist, a timeless piece that is versatile enough to wear all year round. 

 

How would you style it?

 

There's a certain confidence that a woman in a suit exudes. Let the tailoring do the talking and pair with a simple heel or a block mule for an evening look. 

 

What's the event?

 

Cocktail party. 

 

What would you wear?

 

The Kim Mini Dress by ROTATE. The vibrant floral print of this dress keeps things summery while it's mini-length, high neckline and voluminous sleeves give it that glamorous edge that is quintessentially ROTATE. Pair with a BY FAR heel, a pair of statement earrings and you're good to go. 

 

What's the event?

 

Black tie. 

 

What would you wear?

 

The Wide Leg Corset Jumpsuit by Galvan. This ultra-chic jumpsuit is a timeless piece you can rock at any black tie or red carpet event for years to come. The corsetted top makes for an incredibly flattering fit which hugs the figure in all the right places. 

 

How would you style it?

 

With a great pair of black heels, some gold jewellery and a bold, red lip.
