Guest looks

It’s summer, so you may have more than one celebration to attend. As well as the usual weddings, christenings and communions, there are also events such as graduations and birthdays. If it’s occasion wear you’re looking for, check out this season’s must-haves.

Dresses for special events


When it comes to special occasions, most girls go for party dresses, which are pretty but also easy to pair. The dresses that are trending this summer offer a variety of options for every day as well for very special events. They come in every style but follow a similar pattern: eye-catching, eccentric cuts, lots of details and unique fabrics.

Camisole


The trend in camisole dresses is nothing new. Back in the 1990s, top models and actresses used to wear dresses with spaghetti, i.e. very thin straps. Camisole dresses are comfortable and flattering, and they go with anything. They’re great for parties and special events, but you can also wear them with trainers for a more casual look.
The best thing about them is they are timeless and are available in satin fabrics featuring seasonal colours. At Pull & Bear, these dresses comes in different styles: boat neck, which is really on trend this season; draped with a side slit; V-neck; or an asymmetric cut as a mini or long style.

White for the party season


White is not just for brides; it’s also ideal for wearing at ceremonies and special events. Wear a white dress in a short, straight-cut, asymmetric, draped or camisole style; or with a maxi waistcoat and belt. Waistcoats are perfect for adding a touch of style and elegance.
White is great featured in a camisole-style crop top.

Go for a naked cut-out


The naked cut-out is one of this year's most sought-after trends and lots of celebrities, influencers and models are wearing this style at special events. Showing your skin is the epitome of style. Naked cut-out doesn’t refer to the neckline, however, but sections cut out from the design of the dress. Most popular and on trend are cut outs at the side that show off your waist; or styles that reveal your abs and back.
If your dress is Greek inspired, you're sure to make an impression.

Ribbed dresses never go out of style


A ribbed style, or knitwear, is one of the most timeless trends there is, as well as being extremely popular. A ribbed dress in your wardrobe is a safe bet, and will always come to the rescue. You can combine a simple-cut garment with accessories, which will elevate your look for special occasions.

Little black dress


A little black dress should never be missing from your wardrobe, or, in other words, a short black dress. It’s a wardrobe basic that is great for an emergency. Camisole style or as knitwear, it’s not to be underestimated and can be worn with eye-catching accessories.

Other party wear


If dresses aren’t your thing, check out other garments you can wear to parties and on special occasions. As you know, oversized waistcoats are great for adding a touch of elegance and style; black and white are the most sought-after colours. Combine with wide dressy flares and some high-heeled sandals.
Long skirts are also great for adding style, especially combined with a camisole top. On cooler evenings, or at an air-conditioned venue, go for an oversized blazer in a rustic, classic or masculine-cut fabric. These are timeless pieces that are great long-term investments.

Party accessories


Having a nice party dress is not quite enough. You have to know how to wear it. Accessories are your biggest allies. Wear earrings in different styles and bags for going to a party; crochet bags are a great option.
As for shoes, Pull&Bear has a huge variety of sandals, with wide or thin heels and straps in different patterns that are a must for achieving that perfect party look.
In conclusion, if you’re looking for a winning outfit, go for basics that are your wardrobe must-haves. They are great long-terminvestments that are timeless and can be worn any time. Don’t forget some fantastic accessories to add that finishing touch to your look. see more See less
