WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With the festive occasion in mind, I opted for dresses that one can easily dress up. I picked dresses in blue and black because those colours are quite classical. Without further ado, here are my styling ideas.


Let's start with a dress you'll be able to dress down as well. A black turtleneck is something you might already have in your wardrobe. Dressing it up is very easy, you just need to wear it with heels (or any kind of elegant shoes). Add a cute bag, nice earrings (or other accessories) and you're all set.  This midi polo neck dress is quite versatile. I look forward to dressing it up for special occasions, but I will also wear it on everyday basis. You know as they say, you can't go wrong with a little black dress. If you want to make sure you'll feel warm, why not opt for a turtleneck black dress? 



Dress: here / Bag: old/ Heels: no name


I actually ordered this mini dress planning to wear it as a peplum tunics. I might style it with leggings some day, but for now I'll stick to pants. When I saw this dress in shop, I knew that I wanted to wear it with navy palazzo pants and high heels. I think this outfit formula works really well. However, if you are tall or tallish you should know that the size M (the one I ordered) would probably be too short on you. 

If you're looking for a formal dress (or a tunic or a blouse) remember that lace can be a great option. If you're shopping online, you can't examine the material for yourself, but some online shops have the option of zooming in on the products or offer multiple photographs of it, so that might help you decide whether some lace item is worth ordering or not. I'm a big fan of lace, because it is such a feminine and elegant choice, but when ordering online I always make sure that the lace item I'm ordering looks nice. In this case, it ended up looking the same as in shop so I'm content. 


Dress: here / Heels: no name



Square neckline dresses have been in for some time now. I finally got mine a few days ago. This dress also has a little bow on it. I'm a big fan of bows, so I couldn't pass on this one. I think it's a pretty good choice for a special occasion. If you ask me, bellow the knee is the perfect length for this style of dress.  I ordered it with a wedding in mind. I don't think I'll be wearing it on everyday basis, but never say never. I do like its cuts, so I might figure out a way to dress it down for day time. Any suggestions?



Dress: here / Heels: no name




When it comes to formal wear, asymmetric cuts can be just what we need to stand out. One shoulder dresses are always the way to go when we want to stand out a but. They are a classy way of showing some skin. For this last outfit proposal, I paired this cobalt dress with a military green blazer. I think this outfit works quite well. Black is always an elegant choice, but you want to wear something more colourful why not opt for a red or green blazer? It can be a great way to add some colour into your special occasion outfit. Are you all set for special occasion outfits? Have you already selected your  festive outfits? Have you decided what to wear for NYE?

  28. All four of these dresses from Rosegal look very classy and pretty. You look fabulous rocking that comfortable looking black cotton-blend bodycon turtleneck dress, and I really LOVE the look of the A-Line lace mini-dress! The square-necked midi-dress and cobalt blue one shoulder bodycon dresses look pretty as well.

    Really like the little lace dress, although it's definitely a better length for a top! It pairs so nicely with those pants :)

  32. I love these! Red is definitely your colour, as when you wear it with the red lipstick in the black turtleneck dress it really brings the whole look to life and looks stunning. Also, red coats and accessories look so good on you, you style them so well. I adore all of these looks, and love your style.

    Have a great week :)

  33. Oh my favourite would have to be the first black knitted dress; such a flattering fit on you! Gosh the blue lace dress would be too short on most people I'd imagine; great idea to pair it with trousers instead :) Hope you're having a lovely week so far!

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 



AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.
