How to master fancy events when you're a casual girl at heart

Being a girl can be hard.

From having to maintain our personal grooming to our monthly visit from mother nature, it can all get a bit much.

And when it comes to finding an outfit, things enter into a whole other level of complicated – especially if you can't handle a bodycon dress and heels.

Yes, if you’re a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl, shopping for an occasion can be impossible.

In a sea of fancy frocks, it can be easy to lose your sense of style identity and panic purchase something just to get out of the shops.

Well, we’re here to tell you that just because it’s not called 'occasion wear', doesn’t mean you can't look totally amazing for your big event.

Whether it's dressing up a pair of black skinnies, or dressing down a sequin number that's not quite working, finding the perfect balance can be a lot easier than you think.
