Thanks to all the weddings, Christmas celebrations and birthday parties that pop up over the summer calendar, party ensembles will be top of mind.

Whether it’s a favourite pair of glittery heels, or a killer black dress, it feels so good to pull your fancy pieces out from the back of the wardrobe! 

Inspired by the upcoming events season, we’ve gathered some of the best party looks so you’ll be best dressed, no matter the occasion.

Poppy Lissiman Cloudy Sunglasses

Trendy cute cloud sunglasses by Poppy Lissiman.
Poppy Lissiman Cloudy Sunglasses, $195.

Statement sunnies are a must for summer parties. Think long lunches at Soul Bar, or early evening rooftop tipples at QT. We’re loving the Cloudy Sunglasses, which will have heads turning!

Alexander Wang Dahlia 105 Crystal Sandals

Alexander Wang Crystal Sandals which are summer ready.
Alexander Wang Dahlia 105 Crystal Sandals, $1569.

If looks could kill, these would be the heels you’d be wearing. Paired with a simple black dress, you’re sure to be on theme for any event of the season.

Norma Kamali Diana Dress

The Revolve Norma Kamali Diana Dress is the perfect summer winery dress.
Revolve, $430.

This dress has become ‘the sisterhood of the travelling dress’ in most friend groups. It fits everyone so beautifully and is perfect for every occasion. It’s a must invest for years to come.

Loeffler Randall Ember Crystal Gathered Clutch

Accessories are an easy go-to for a plain outfit glow-up. This little clutch is perfect to grab on your way out the door and add a little sparkle for the party!

Reformation Arella Strapless Ruched Top

Reformation Arella Strapless Ruched Top is bright pink and summer wedding ready.
Net-A-Porter, $334.

Go big or go home with this bold option, which pairs perfectly with any skirt or party pant – plain or printed! It also has a gorgeous bow tie element on the back for a feminine touch.

Christopher Esber Polar Orbit Mini Dress

The Polar Orbit mini dress from Christoper Esber is a mesh dream for summer parties.
Christopher Esber, $700.

It’s the Christopher Esber twist on the classic LBD. With his signature gold hardware, this is the perfect sexy party number. You won’t risk turning up in the same outfit as someone else!

Amanda Uprichard Samba Dress

Find summer outfits from Amanda Uprichard, for example, this Samba pink sequin halterneck dress.
Revolve, $400.

This wouldn’t be a party list without a little sequin! Revolve has some pretty incredible sequin dresses (ahem… Retrofete) but I thought I’d stick with something a little more affordable! I love the halter neckline as it means it’s still appropriate for so many occasions!

Dissh Isabelle White Midi Dress

The Dissh Isabelle White Mididress is a frilly, off shoulder and romantic winery outfit summer.
Dissh, $170.

If relaxed summer lunches are more your speed, a little linen goes a long way. Dissh are a no-brainer when it comes to a slightly more casual look. While it may be pared back, the frills are sure to get compliments!

Dazie Cindy Heels

The Dazie Cindy Heels are sparkly silver with a low wedge. Great as summer wedding guest shoes.
The Iconic, $95.

A little understated, yet a little sparkly. The Cindy heels give a little twinkle, without screaming party right at you! These heels will easily go on date nights, or even head to the office as a point of difference to a black outfit – cost per wear is everything!
