For a stylish party look, tap into this summer's key trends by opting for a dress in a sweet pastel tone or in a vibrant floral print or butterfly design.
If you want to look even more fashion forward, then ditch the traditional cocktail dress and opt for a funky jumpsuit instead.
Accessories is where you can add some fun or formality to your outfit.
Floppy 1970s inspired hats add a casual touch to a cocktail dress, while a feather headpiece makes a bright coloured dress seem impossibly glamorous.
And you can never go wrong with classic nude, gold or pearl accessories, as they go with everything.
It can be difficult to get occasion wear right, but if you follow these simple rules, you can't go wrong.
SOME BASIC RULES TO FOLLOW INCLUDE:
1: Don't wear white or cream unless it is covered in a bright statement print. This is the bride's day to stand out so you shouldn't steal her thunder.
2: Wearing black is acceptable as long as you wear it as part of a print or you pair it with bright accessories.
3: Look at what colours the couple have used on the wedding invitation. This is likely to be the colour scheme for the big day so avoid these tones at all costs unless you want to be mistaken for a bridesmaid.
4: Dress to suit the type of wedding and the venue. If it is a relaxed wedding being held in a barn, you can get away with wearing something more laid-back and fun. However, if the wedding is being held in a swish city centre hotel, be sure to dress up in your finest.
5: Hats aren't a necessity but are a good (and often cheap) way to dress up a simple dress.
If you have a diary full of social engagements this summer, then head to the Glasgow Fort, as it is a one-stop destination for all party needs. Featuring stores from top high street brands such as Warehouse, Oasis, New Look and Miss Selfridge, you will be spoilt for choice.
The late-night opening hours are also great for anyone who wants to shop after work, with stores open from 10am-10pm on weekdays.
