The Great Dilemma

There is nothing that sends me into tailspin faster than someone telling me to dress casually for a dinner in summer. I think the go-to for most people when the dress code is “casual” is jeans, but when it’s as balmy as it was a little earlier this year, that’s the last thing you feel like putting on.

I had one such dilemma a few weeks ago. If I had been going to dinner with my friends, I would have known the score, and probably wouldn’t have hesitated to wear heels, but as I was meeting a bunch of new people, I didn’t want to overdress.

I found the answer in a faux leather skort (didn’t realise skorts were a thing outside of primary school netball) and a white top with an interesting neckline.

There are some trends I studiously avoid (flared pants, wedge sneakers etc.) and some I wholeheartedly embrace. Dramatic sleeves are definitely the later. Combined with the slouchy neckline, and the fact that I just can’t stay away from a good crisp white shirt, I knew this baby was coming home with me.

Add some mixed metal jewellery and other metallic accessories to take it from day to night, and you’re good to go. Dilemma solved- you’re welcome.
