What to Wear for Every Kind of Dress Code

Here’s Miss Selfridge’s guide to dress codes for social events.
What to Wear for Every Kind of Dress Code

Different events have their own dress codes, and it can be tricky to plan the perfect ensemble when you’re limited by style dos and don’ts. If you’re looking for the most appropriate (and chic!) outfit to wear, check out the new collection of Miss Selfridge.

Black Tie Affairs

Miss Selfridge Black Lace V-Front Jumpsuit and Ivory Embroidered Front Split Maxi Dress

When an invitation says “formal attire”, you’ll need to go with something sophisticated and timeless, like the Black Lace V-Front Jumpsuit and the Ivory Embroidered Front Split Maxi Dress. They’re both perfect for day and night, and you can pair them with single-strap heels and statement accessories to add some fun to the ensemble. Style your hair into an updo for more polished look.

Cocktail Parties

MISS SELFRIDGE WHITE JACQUARD CROPPED TOP AND MIDI SKIRT AND NUDE FLORAL BEADED MINI DRESS

A semi-formal dress code means you can look a little less dressy than you would in formal attire. Do away with floor length gowns for more fun, flirty pieces like the White Jacquard Cropped Top and Midi Skirt and the Nude Floral Beaded Mini Dress.

Festive Occasions

Miss Selfridge Black Beaded Mini Dress and Chocolate Spotted Jumpsuit

Dresses that sparkle are great for parties. Try the Black Beaded Mini Dress and pair it with drop earrings and barely there heeled sandals for a party-appropriate look. For something more subdued, experiment with a Chocolate Spotted Jumpsuit and pair with hoops and a sleek belt bag—this season’s must have accessories.

The Office

Miss Selfridge Ivory Boucle Blazer and Cream Boucle Mini Skirt, and Multi Colour Brushed Check Blazer and Grey Brushed Check Mini Skirt

A professional OOTD doesn’t have to be boring, and you can look both stylish and put together in the Ivory Boucle Blazer and Cream Boucle Mini Skirt or the Multi Colour Brushed Check Blazer and Grey Brushed Check Mini Skirt. Add some fun to your work ensemble by playing around with colorful footwear.
