Try On Tuesdays: Weekly Round Up


Have you ever found yourself tearing your hair out, after trying on your whole wardrobe with no answer as to what to wear to an event? Then Try On Tuesday is for you. Try On Tuesday is a weekly segment on our Instagram stories, to answer all the styling queries that you have sent to us.

What to wear to a 1920s inspired ball?

The 1920s were a time for moonshine liquor, excess, and most importantly, influential fashion. We’ll skip the dodgy homemade alcohol, but the glitzy dresses we’re here for. This sequin fishtail maxi? Gatsby, eat your heart out. Embellished all over, backless and quite frankly show-stopping. Pair with some equally glamorous accessories, like this pearl bag, to go full flapper-girl.

What to wear for my first wedding anniversary night out?

It might be your one year anniversary, but you still want your date night to feel like the first. Dressing up is essential. If it’s a special dinner date, a combo like this midi wrap skirt with a simple bodysuit will have you covered, all the way from your paper anniversary up until your ruby one.

What to wear at my Mum’s December wedding?

A winter wedding is notoriously difficult to dress for. You want something with a suggestion of festive glamour, but still practical and appropriate for the whole day. A style like this burgundy dip hem dress is perfect for keeping a hint of Christmas whilst still being elegant. Don’t forget the long sleeves, because goosebumps and blue lips are not the ideal party accessory.

What to wear to a hollywood glamour themed Christmas party?

Christmas? Glitz and glamour. Hollywood? Glamour and glitz. Christmas and Hollywood are party looks that go hand-in-hand. A dress like this sequin maxi dress is ideal, like something you could imagine on Marilyn Monroe. Just with added sequins. The knee high slit and floor length hem bring the Hollywood drama, whilst the burgundy shade and sparkly sequins bring all the Christmas kitsch.

A Christmas day dress to wear?

On Christmas day, there are only two kinds of people. You either go out for lunch, or you don’t leave your front room. But either way, you still want to dress up. This red abstract print dress has all the festive cheer, whilst giving you plenty of room for your roast dinner. It’ll keep you comfy until 3pm, when you’ll inevitably get back into your pyjamas. Pair with some Baileys and a plate of buffet food you’re too full to eat, because…Christmas.

New York winter street style?

New York at Christmas time isn’t complete without snow tipped trees and Central Park strolls. Perfect for pictures, but not so much for dressing or being able to feel your extremities. You’ll need a coat like this cream teddy jacket that will keep off the cold on the dash from Barney’s to Tiffany’s. Layer over a basic black outfit with matching accessories for insta-worthy street style.
