The two words that can strike fear into even the most confident of fashion lovers? Dress code. But when choosing an outfit for a special occasion, whether it be Royal Ascot or your cousin’s wedding, there is only one mantra – be yourself.
If you don’t normally wear four-inch heels or frou-frou frocks then for heaven’s sake, don’t start now. In the past, strict dress codes often made you feel that you were having to dress in a uniform. Luckily, formal events these days are much less prescriptive, so you should choose an outfit that ticks all the right smart boxes and leaves you with plenty of re-wear options.
