Looking for a sartorial survival guide to the summer event season? Read on…

THE EVENT

A GALLERY OPENING

For an event that requires polish but no fuss, such as an exhibition or gallery opening, opt for something classic yet contemporary. Invest in a selection of separates in a neutral colour palette, then deftly layer slightly different shades of vanilla and cream to create a look that’s subtle and interesting, as well as coherent from head to toe.

THE BRAND

TARA JARMON

at Arnotts and tarajarmon.com

THE EVENT

A CHIC COCKTAIL PARTY

The trick to dressing for a grown-up drinks party is simple: nothing too short, too tight or too bright. If you’re a guest at a classy cocktail party, try a pair of palazzo pants with an elegantly draped top, or a voluminous tunic dress.

THE BRAND

UMIT KUTLUK

at Arnotts, Emporium Kalu and 27 Merrion Square (umitkutluk.com)
Turkish-born, Dublin-based Umit Kutluk has brought a freshness and modernity to occasionwear that appeals to women from 25 to 55. His ready-to-wear pieces exude understated elegance, but exquisite fabrics and precision tailoring define them as special pieces that will last (both physically and fashionably) a lifetime.
