At SoSensational our raison d’etre is to bring you fabulous fashion, especially for a big occasion such as a wedding, a day at the Races, a party or a formal black-tie event.
Whatever the Occasion, there will always be lots of variables. If it is a party, it could be a black-tie event at a ritzy hotel or a smart lunch party at someone’s home.
So, any Occasion means fashion dilemmas.
At SoSensational, we know about fashion dilemmas so you’ll find lots of fabulous Occasion Wear of all kinds. But we can’t show you all of it here. But you can find lots more party-wear here.
For now, here is fabulous fashion that has been carefully chosen with a few winter occasions in mind. And, of course, carefully chosen for the chic, older woman…
BLACK-TIE PARTY#1 – DELICIOUS DRESSES
With the party-season approaching fast you’ll be delighted to learn there are endless stunning dresses for party-wear, crafted in beautiful luxe fabrics, such as lace, chiffon, jacquard, crepe and velvet. There are pretty prints and elegant plains and a dazzling choice of colours from primaries to pastels and moody autumn tones to timeless neutrals – all perfect for occasion wear for an older woman. Many have sleeves, and every length you want, from long/maxi to midi to knee-length, is available this season. Naturally, the Little Black Dress – or LBD – makes its annual appearance in a variety of cuts, fabrics and lengths (and even colours – this year’s LBD could be the Little Dark-green Dress, or the Little Navy Dress). The vital attributes of any LBD (in any shade) is instant glamour, instant chic and instant flattery.
Details to look for on any party dress include sequins, crystals, feathers, fringing, off-the-shoulder neckline, embroidery, statement sleeves and asymmetry.
BLACK-TIE PARTY#2 – ANYTHING BUT A DRESS
If you don’t love a dress, you’ll be happy to know there are head-turning alternatives to dresses for black-tie events this season. These include jumpsuits, trouser suits and palazzo pants.
A jumpsuit or trouser suit in a dark neutral, perhaps in a luxe fabric, works well for party-wear and evening-wear.
Palazzo trousers, again in a luxe fabric such as chiffon, crepe or velvet, are perfect for party-wear. Pair them with a glamorous top crafted in any luxe evening fabric, perhaps with some glam embellishment.
Styling is the key to looking properly “party” with any of these. Add sparkly jewellery, a bijoux bag and glammy footwear.
JUMPSUITS, TROUSER SUITS, PALAZZOS, ETC
OCCASION COATS & JACKETS
As winter is almost here and the temperature is likely to dip dramatically, you may be looking for a chic layer to wear over your Occasion dress or outfit. Here are the statement coats and occasion jackets for weddings and more to ward off chills and ensure you look sensational.
We’ll be back soon with more of our favourites picked just for you. In the meantime stay sensational!
