Finding an outfit to wear to an event can a challenge, especially if you don’t want to spend an excessive amount of money on something you can never wear again. This is why it’s a great idea to buy something that is nice enough to wear to any event, whilst being casual enough to wear on a normal day out. So here are 15 Casual Outfit Ideas To Wear To Any Event.
A Floral Maxi Dress.
Be it a wedding or just a day trip out with friends, a floral Maxi Dress is the perfect item to wear to any event. Style with some wedged sandals and some delectate jewellery for a formal event, or some flat gladiators and sunglasses for a day out. I love this ASOS Woven Wrap Maxi Beach Dress, which you can find here.
A Skirt Top Co-ord
A really cute Skirt Top Co-ord is a super cute look which can be worn to any event, whilst being mixed and matched or worn with different accessories for a super casual day look. For an event look, wear with some strapped pumps and a light jacket, and for a day look consider wearing a t-shirt with the skirt, or some high waisted jeans with the top. I love the Natasha Lace Cop & Full Midi Skirt Co-Ord Set from Boohoo, find it here.
High Waisted Culottes
Culottes are a look which have really come back into style over the last few seasons, and they work well in both a formal and casual setting. Wear with a casual jumper and some trainers for regular day wear, and some strapped sandals and a blouse for an event look. I love these Cropped Trousers with Tie from Zara, get yours here.
Bell Sleeve Blouse
Another current trend which can be worn for both casually and for events are Bell Sleeved Blouses. Wear with some formal fitted trousers and some cute pumps for an event, or some shorts and mules for a casual day look. I love this Bell Sleeved Blouse by Glamorous from Topshop, get it here.
Everyone knows the skirt that Carrie wears in Sex and the City, and although it may seem a little over the top for day wear, when styled correctly it can be worn to any occasion. Try with a long sleeved jumper and some boots for a casual day look, and some stilettos and an off shoulder top for an event. I love this Grey Tulle Hanky Hem Midi from New Look, find it here.
Pleated Midi Skirt
Pleated skirts are a great look that fit most body types, and something that any girl should have in their wardrobe. A pleated skirt can be worn with a super cute lace top and some wedged sandals for an event, or a loose t-shirt tucked into the waistband with some stylish tennis shoes for a day look. I love this ASOS Pleated Midi Skirt in Velvet, you can get it here.
Jumper and Skater Skirt Combo
As the days begin to get colder, a Jumper and Skater Skirt Combo is the perfect outfit to wear to any occasion. The beauty of this outfit is that with the right hairstyle and bag choice, very little has to be changed between a day and night look; an updo and small clutch for night and natural hair with a larger handbag for day. I love this Petite Rust Crop Rib Jumper from Miss Selfridge, find it here, and this Emani Textured Panel Skater Skirt from Boo, which you can find here.
As with most things in life, bigger is better, and that is no different with this Jumbo Trousers look. These great trousers can be worn with a fitted blouse and some pointed pumps for an event look, or a loose t-shirt and your favourite pair of trainers for your day look. I love these Black Wide Leg Trousers from River Island, get them here.
Jumpsuits have been in style for a long time now, so if you don’t already have one in your wardrobe, you need to invest. Jumpsuits work in both casual and formal settings, when styled well. Wear with some strapped pumps and chunky bracelets for a formal look, or some flats and a hat for a more casual look. I love this Dorothy Perkins Black Ruffle Jumpsuit, find it here.
When most people think of blazers they think of work suits and bad shoulder padding, however, a nice fitted blazer can be worn to a multitude of events when styled correctly. Wear draped over the shoulders with a mid-length dress and pumps for occasion wear, and some fitted jeans and boots for a day look. I love this Unique 21 Tailored Blazer from Next, buy one here.
A dress doesn’t have to be fitted to still look great as event wear. Wear with some bold jewellery and some well styled every for occasion-wear and casual hair and sandals for day wear. I love this Long Smock Shirt Dress from COS, get yours here.
Cami Slip Dress
The Cami Dress is a great piece as it is so easy to style for any event. Wear with either a short or long sleeve t-shirt and some boots for day wear, or skip the top and wear some statement jewellery for an event look. I love this Black Peplum Hem Midi Slip Dress from New Look, find it here.
High Waisted Shorts
A pair of smart High Waisted Shorts can be worn to most event when the styling is down correctly. Wear them with a cute lace jumper and flats for day wear, and a same coloured blouse and heels for an event. I love these High Waited Shorts from Zara, get them here.
The Shirt Dress is a great casual to occasion wear look, as it only requires a small amount of styling to create the variation. Buy an unfitted Shirt Dress and wear loose with some boots or flats for day wear, or a chunky belt and some heeled sandals for occasion wear. I love this White Textured Long Sleeve Shirt Dress from Silk Fred, find it here.
Cigarette Trousers are a flattering fit on most women, and are a great item to have in your wardrobe for occasion and casual wear.
