Andrea’s It-List: 6 dresses to get you through any occasion

Andrea’s It-List: 6 dresses to get you through any occasion

What do you wear to a garden party at Buckingham Palace? I admit, I was pretty daunted by the ‘day dress and hat’ dress code when I got my first invitation this month to celebrate the creative industries.

What I wish I’d known in the panic fuelled days before is that minus the hat, ‘day dress’ just translates to an elegant summer midi or maxi (think vibrant florals or a pop of colour), with flat sandals, wedges or block heels you can navigate wet grass in for 3 hours. I opted for this classic white structured dress (with all important pockets) and upcycled cropped jacket combo by Alice and Olivia. Together, they were just on the right side of statement dressing while demure enough to meet the King. They’re also suitably versatile to wear separately for a host of other alfresco events, work soirees and rooftop parties this summer season and beyond. Read on for some other great garden party looks I’m loving.

This week over at Fashion’s Digest HQ we’re all swooning over the exclusive new Jigsaw x Roksanda capsule collection for Spring/Summer 2024. Featuring sweeping silk dresses, soft trouser suits and Roksanda’s signature colour blocking, this is a collection of elegant statement pieces that transcend seasonal trends. There are so many incredible pieces in this collection that are perfect for summer events, but my favourite is this luxurious knotted plisse maxi dress featuring a hand painted watercolour print.
