The Checklist: Best Dressed Guest
The text message has been received, the email has landed in the inbox, an invitation on pearlescent paper has been dropped into your letterbox. Fortunately, we’re here to help.
Whether it’s creating the perfect graduation outfit, ensuring you’re leaving a lasting impression at an engagement party, or simply getting dressed up for a long-awaited evening out, our checklist below will ensure you’re the best dressed guest, no matter the occasion.
1. Perfect Party Pieces
Parties and social engagements are designed to be fun, and your ensembles should reflect that. Our edit of occasionwear will surely get you in the celebratory mood - guaranteeing a “yes” to any RSVP request. From smart suiting– cue Saint Laurent and Brunello Cucinelli – to sleek separates, we’ve got classic white shirts, bold accessories and a plethora of wool blazers to help you skillfully swerve vague dress codes and make a serious sartorial impact.
2. Polished Plus-Ones
Why invite a date when a pair of show-stopping shoes make for the perfect companion? These GmbH loafers bring a subtle edge to more formal affairs - or perhaps opt for a pair of Tricker's Derby shoes, which are set on a Goodyear welt sole to avoid any undesirable slips on the dancefloor. Feeling something more casual? Add some easygoing eclecticism to your ensemble with bright sneakers from Auxiliary, Hoka One One or adidas.
3. Best-In-Class Basics
Every great ensemble requires a great foundation. That’s why we've curated a selection of top drawer favourites to provide you with all the building blocks for your next soirée. We've got boxer brief sets from the likes of Versace, Calvin Klein Underwear and Polo Ralph Lauren, and socks by Sunspel to slip into the aforementioned party shoes. Don’t forget about the inevitable post-party crash, and ensure you have a pair of Derek Rose pyjamas waiting at home - your sleeping self will thank you.
4. Charming Accessories
You’ve created the outfit but it’s missing one thing; that luxurious finishing touch. Our edit of fine jewellery and watches is filled to the brim with polished rings, chunky chains and sophisticated timepieces that will ensure your ensembles are decorated with the Midas touch they deserve. Choose from Le Gramme's cable bracelets and Foundrae's statement charms - or for an unexpected twist we suggest opting for an EÉRA Key earring – guaranteed to be a conversation piece.
