Choosing a dress for an evening event

There are multiple events throughout the year and special celebrations throughout life that require a little extra special effort or when you deserve to treat yourself to a new outfit. Selecting a dress for an evening event however, comes with a myriad of variables and needs depending on the time of year, the formality of the event and any special dress codes. Generally, dressing for an evening event will require a more formal dress than a morning or afternoon event. This general rule however, can be followed to a degree – for e.g. a summer dinner party by the ocean can take a day dress and accessorise with more glam accessories.

Best dresses to wear to work

The best dresses to choose for your corporate wardrobe are dresses that you are comfortable sitting and standing in all day. It is also essential to select your dresses based on how you feel in them; you want to emanate your confidence in your outfits, which is hard to achieve if your dress makes you feel uncomfortable. Chemises and A-line dresses are great options as they are designed to skim the body but are not too form-fitting and uncomfortable to sit in. In summer, relaxed silhouettes including wrap dresses will become wardrobe staples as the more relaxed working from home trend continues. 

Dresses to wear in Zoom meetings

As working from home continues to become the new normal, dressing for Zoom meetings has created new wardrobe rules for looking presentable on screen. Depending on your industry and specific wardrobe requirements, choosing dresses for a Zoom meeting should follow a few basic rules to achieve comfort and effortlessness. 

Select a dress that is comfortable to sit down in for extended periods of time. As many meetings have inevitably shifted from in-person to on-screen, it is more likely that you will be seated for the majority of your day instead of moving around to different board rooms and buildings. Selecting a dress that does not leave you feeling uncomfortable and doesn’t require constant re-adjusting is key.Choose an interesting neckline. As you will most likely be appearing on screen from the torso up, having an interesting design detail on the neckline will immediately make you look more put together. A boater neckline can look very elegant when styled with the hair up, or a wrap dresses’ v-neckline will also add a distinct design element.Experiment with colour. Adding a colour pop to the screen is a great way to convey your own personal style on-screen, while also enabling you to be more memorable in a meeting with multiple members. 

FAQ

How do you style designer dresses?

Styling your dress is an extension of your style, and the way you accessorise a dress can completely shift the look. The styling will depend on the exact silhouette of the dress – for example a boater neckline will be best styled with a pair of drop earrings rather than a large necklace. Furthermore, a dress with a pattern may require accessories that do not detract from the dress’s print – a plain gold bangle can add a finishing touch on a sleeve. A dress can also be styled with a complimentary blazer or coat in winter, or a summer hat and straw bag in summer. 

What designer style looks good on all body types?

Knowing what suits your body is the easiest way to look chic and well put together. Carla Zampatti creates designs with the female silhouette top of mind to ensure that the most flattering fits and shapes are pursued. With the size range between size 4 and 16, Carla’s designs are made with specific measurements to each size, to ensure that the various needs of women of all sizes are considered. 

What kind of designer dresses should all women have in their wardrobe?

The best designer dresses to have in your wardrobe are those that make you feel confident, empowered and supported. Having dresses in your wardrobe that you want to reach for again and again for how they make you feel are the best investments. Some typical staples however, will include a little black dress in a tailored cut, a breezy summer dress and a statement print dress. These staples should be not focused on trends, yet instead are timeless, sophisticated and chic. Having a patterned option will let you explore a little fun in your wardrobe, though select a print that can transcend time and be mixed and matched with numerous accessories to maximise usage.
