The Ultimate Guide On What To Wear This Soirée Season

More than just an LBD

By Bethan Warrior | 22nd October 2019

There’s nothing quite like shopping for a new outfit for that special occasion coming up on your calendar. As the party season ramps up, so does the excitement of buying some brand-new ensembles. Westfield Chermside is our go-to destination for all soirée season must-haves, with all the pieces you’ll need to get you through wedding season, work parties, New Years and beyond!

We’ve already prepared four looks, ready for the taking!

Spring Fling

Aje Shell cropped blouse, Gorman Saftey net pant, Nine West Brielle slide, Review Spring kiss bag, Sheike Promenade Hat

Hello Marilyn! Perfect for daytime affairs, this 50s inspired look offers as much comfort as it does old Hollywood style. The Gorman Safety Net pants create an eye-catching statement while the fresh whites of the Aje Shell blouse and Review Spring Kiss bag keep it cool. Add a touch of black (and sun safety!) with the Sheike Promenade hat and slide on into your day with the Nine West Brielle’s. Otherwise, Brisbane's Sacha Drake's latest collection, Sans Souci, has a range of pieces ideal for the spring season to flatter all shapes.

Dark Night

Seed Heritage dress, Furla Mimi mini crossbody bag, Jo Mercer Adia strappy sandals, Sheike Ella necklace

You can’t go wrong with a little black dress and some statement accessories for your evening events this season. This guy has NYE written all over it! The Shirred balloon LBD from Seed Heritage features a great shape to flatter all figures while the shoes and accessories do the talking. We suggest a mini cross bag like the one above from Furla (the Mimi) paired with the golden toned Jo Mercer Adia high sandal. Polish off the look with a subtle hint of bling like Sheike’s Ella necklace. Voila!

Peachy Perfect

Sheike True Romance matching skirt and jacket, Sheike Vixen sunglasses, Jo Mercer Capri High Heel Sandals, Seed Heritage Pearl bun pins, Seed Heritage Circle pearl earrings

This matching set is faultless for a work function. The tailored and classy silhouette combined with the playful colour is a sure winner. This time of year with the festive season in full swing it’s important to be able to go from the desk to after work drinks so use accessories to play your hand. The matchy-matchy True Romance skirt and jacket can be found at Sheike and compliments touches of pearl. The Circle earrings by Seed Heritage work perfectly with the Pearl bun pins, also from Seed Heritage. The Capri heel by Jo Mercer will help step you through the day, well into the night and offer a flattering cut on the pins! For a day affair why not pop-on some eyewear like the Vixen sunglasses from Sheike? A bold but femme look, nailed.

Floral Affair

Alice McCall Wildflowers crop, Alice McCall Wildflowers short, Furla Belvedere belt bag, Jo Mercer Teckel high heels light pink, SABA Dharma Blazer

Whether it’s a baby shower, hens or even a Sunday sesh with the girls, some femme and flirty florals are a must. Plus, if you’re ever going to test the waters with florals, spring and summer is the chance! Again, this ensemble is ideal for a flirty Friday look at the office which can easily get you through to sunset drinks. The Alice McCALL Wildflowers crop and shorts offer a statement piece which is both soft but eye-catching. Keep the rest simple and clean! The SABA Dharma blazer will save you through the cool breezes in the afternoon while enhancing the style while the Jo Mercer Teckel heel’s and Furla Belvedere belt bag add the final touch.

All these looks and more can be found at Westfield Chermside!
