Be the Best Dressed Guest!

April 25th, 2016 § 0 comments § permalink

It’s that time of year again where the invites start flooding in and then shear panic  “WHAT am I going to wear” starts to set in!

Don’t worry, we’ve all been there but whether it’s your best friend’s wedding, a summer birthday or family get together, sometimes the trick to nailing that perfect event look, is to turn to vintage. Not only can it be more affordable but you’re guaranteed that noone else will be wearing your fabulous look. (Lets face it, noone wants to turn up to a party and find that they’re wearing that same high street dress as their friend…not a good result!!).

So here are our top vintage picks, for those Summer events, all available to purchase on our ASOS boutique.

1970s Halterneck Dress – UK size 8

This gorgeous 1970s halter neck dress is perfect for swanning around a wedding on a hot Summer’s day. Even though it is vintage, it has a modern feel to it, we really love the lace bandeau around the waist!

1970s Paisley Dress – UK Size 8

This dress would be great worn to a summer garden party or wedding, you can’t go wrong with paisley. Jazz it up by wearing a belt, perhaps a sparkly light weight bolero and some statement jewellery and you’re good to go!

1970s Maxi Dress – UK size 8-10

What a perfect dress to wear to a festival! We just love the abstract but simple leaf print against the white background. It really makes the print pop and the cut of the dress is rather flattering too.
