Bohemian Traders Style // Event Season Dressing



Event Season is fast approaching; with Melbourne Cup just around the corner and many Spring & Summer Soiree’s in the Diary, now is the time to plan your perfect outfit! The team here at Bohemian Traders have come together, bringing their top tips and favourite styles to help you build your best event season wardrobe.


Our Tips For Event Dress:


Think About It // A little bit of fore-thought goes a long way when it comes to planning your event season wardrobe. Taking the time to think about the event, it’s location, time and dress code are all important parts of getting the best experience from the day. By taking the time to plan in advance you allow yourself time to shop at your leisure; this is a key step in finding the perfect outfit.

Stay True to You // Consider your personal style, what do you always come back to? What makes you feel the best? These are the questions to ask when putting together your staple event season outfits. Are you Bold, Flirty or Chic? Make sure your outfit choices reflect the person you are inside!

Be Wary of  “Trends” // Keep your outfits on trend, but lean towards classy and simple. Invest in classic pieces that stay true to who you are.

Be Comfortable //  The key to being comfortable is wearing clothes that fit you properly and suit your style. Event season is all about looking good and feeling great! Make sure you feel amazing in your outfit, as it will come through in your body language.

Think of the Footwear //  It can be so tempting, with all the beautiful statement shoes around this time of year to go for something bold and daring! 10-story-stiletto’s may look amazing, but if you’re not used to walking with the added height you’re going to be left uncomfortable and in pain. Opt for walk-able wedges, or funky flats if heels just aren’t your norm. Alternatively pop a pair of fold-up-flats in your clutch for that sweet feet relief at the end of the night (or half way through) because beauty doesn’t always have to be painful.

We have pulled together our favourite looks from the Bohemian Traders Spring Summer 17 Collection to inspire your Event Season Picks…
