OOTD | Making Occasionwear Versatile Project Marks and Spencer | Formal

Shoes: Zara
Watch: Claire’s Accessories
Sunglasses: Primark

Last week I was contacted by the team at Marks and Spencer for a styling challenge of an item from their occasional wear dresses. One of these styles which I featured in this post is most appropriate for a formal occasion like a party, wedding reception or just a classy evening out. It is always great to see investment pieces worn more than once and this is where your creativity can shine through. Therefore I have also re-styled this dress for more of a casual look which will be live tomorrow, so look out for that!

This elegant dress is ever so womanly with its body-con fit but allows a lot of movement with the stretchy material it is made of. The side paneling also gives a slimming illusion which is always a plus when you want to hide some tummy bump… haha You also know it is of high quality as the material is very durable and there are two layers. The bag is very versatile with the option of wearing a long strap or just sporting the gold handles on the bag. A cute little bucket bag which is a perfect little size for carrying everything you need. These sunglasses are my favourite accessories right now! I just love round frames which I do think suits all face shapes. To finish the look I am wearing my dainty grey Zara heels.

This is just one of the ways you can style an outfit but there are many ways in which you can do so.
I really enjoyed putting together this outfit… hope you like.

Look out for how I restyled this formal look for a casual look!
