You've got parties, we've got dresses. Here's how to style them for all the special occasions in your diary – as demonstrated by three top bloggers

Rachel Turore of Rachel the Hat

Fashion blogger, Rachel Turore knows a thing or two about dressing for special occasions. Below she’s chosen three M&S dresses that will work for your big celebrations this summer.

"A wedding is the perfect time to go for a bright colour and, with its lace detail, this emerald green dress suits everyone. Black accessories provide a sharp contrast, but try navy or peacock colours for a softer look"

Morgana of Coffee Work Sleep Repeat

Morgana is a blogger and entrepreneur who writes regularly about fashion, lifestyle and running a start-up. Here she puts her spin on dressing for formal occasions.

"If you’re often drawn to dark colours, the floral print on this Fifties-style dress makes it perfect for a summer wedding. The nipped-in waist and halter neck are so flattering and, with the billowing skirt, it is comfortable and stylish."
