A nice formal dress is always a good idea for these kinds of events. It is easy to combine with a nice blazer or cardigan and together with a beautiful clutch, you are ready for your formal event. Wear it with heels or go for beautiful flats, both will make you look amazing for the event.

We love this outfit! Classy and casual at the same time and perfect for a work event. A nice wide blouse tucked into looser fitting trousers and classy heels is a safe but stylish look that will fit in almost every event. If you don’t prefer to walk in heels all evening, simply take some flats with you (or wear flats from the beginning) to make yourself more comfortable.
