In this week’s column I want to focus on the conundrum of dressing for Communion, christening, and confirmation. I believe that if you look the best you can and feel good in what you wear, you will be confident.

Summer occasions and parties are in full swing and most of us are in the lookout for ‘the’ outfit. No outfit is complete without the perfect cover up, and the weather being what it is, it is nearly impossible to get away without a jacket or coat. These are much more than just cover ups — jackets, wraps, capes, or summer coats shape any outfit, give individuality and accentuate the silhouette. Whether you are heading to a family event, a night out in town, or a party, make sure to choose outerwear that will take you anywhere this summer. Opt for interesting pieces in quality fabrics that flatter the shape and stand the test of time.
Every summer our country embarks on a season of celebrations. Yes, it’s that time of year — wedding season. I have already been to one, with three more to go, and with one being black tie, I have an added level of complexity. Trying to make the most of one outfit is doable but difficult, and none of us wish to spend our annual clothing budget on one piece. There are always some clever ways to reinvent existing dresses, but sometimes we just long for something new. Weddings are always a very glam affair, and a great excuse to get all dolled up. With a huge range of formal wear available on the high street, and the ever popular dress hire concept appearing all over the country, there is no need to worry, there are plenty of options.

I have not bought a winter coat yet and I have been on the lookout for a timeless piece, in a classic shape to work with my entire wardrobe. Meeting these requirements is not exactly easy — it needs to be the right length for my height, be cut in a way that flatters my shape and in a colour that is versatile. Thankfully, there are plenty to choose from this year, and I really do like this military trend which brands such as Marks and Spencer are focusing on this season with a stellar range of coats for all shapes and sizes. Whether it is a long coat, a pea coat, or a three quarter length coat you need, I have picked out some of the best making their way to the shop floors over the next month or two.

Despite our internal craving for all things glam, there comes a time when we just want to keep it casual. Our style that is. But there is equilibrium where sparkly meets tracksuit and I call it “smart”. Typically at the weekends, we like to brush off the week, send the suit to the dry cleaners and don our Saturday finest, the most popular being jeans and a top. The definition of casual clothes has evolved over the last number of years as Ireland is now the home to some of the most renowned retailers, both indigenous and international. We can, without fail, style ourselves comfortably and affordably. I had the pleasure of interviewing British fashion legend, Gok Wan last week and we talked of Irish style in general and he thinks we got it sorted. So if Gok thinks we have style, how do we balance the chic with the comfy?
