If dresses aren’t really your thing, a well-tailored suit paired with a crop top or simple cami is a great alternative. This is one of many you’ll find on ASOS. Plus the blazer and trousers can be worn separately to create multiple outfits!

Wearing a hat or fascinator is another way to take your outfit to the next level. You could go all out with a dramatic, floppy number or opt for something a little more subtle like this ASOS fascinator. Either way, you’re sure to turn heads.
