How to dress for dinner in Mayfair

I’ve worried before about how to dress for dinner in Mayfair. But after years of going ‘out out’ to some swanky restaurants I feel more confident so I thought I’d share some outfit ideas for stylish ladies to wear in posh London areas.

The dress I wore in Mayfair recently would make a pretty amazing handkerchief dress for Mother of the Bride (on my radar as I am a Mother of the Bride next year!!). But, I’ve put together several chic outfits so you can feel every bit as fabulous as you are!

In an area synonymous with elegance and style it can feel pricy planning to dress for dinner in Mayfair, but with many items 1/2 price (including my dress and bag) you can feel a little at ease clicking on your favourites!

 

How To Dress For Dinner In Mayfair.

 

 

How to dress for dinner in Mayfair – or indeed other very smart areas of London – can be a bit of a pressure. You will find many young women dressed for the nightclubs in scant or sexy outfits. They would be unsuitable for most swanky restaurants. You will also find rich young adults underdressing a little. However, their clothes are usually very expensive and beautifully cut, so hold up very well.

I feel most comfortable wearing something chic, elegant, stylish but also a little different. Such as this silk satin handkerchief dress…

 

PIN for later!

We were staying in a hotel in Mayfair and had a restaurant booked so getting ready was relaxed for once, without our four dogs barking at the front door or wanting to be lifted onto the bed. This is my first ever silk satin dress and I feel very dressed up in it. It feels fabulous to wear!

I was lucky to catch it in the 1/2 price (or less) SALE, which is still on and has my dress still available in most sizes!

Other dresses that I adore is this ruby silk dress – it’s stunning and currently 1/2 price. This was the first time I’ve ever worn a handkerchief dress and if you are unsure about this style it would be a good option for you.

I am thrilled by my clutch bag!! I bought it for my Mother of The Bride outfit but have found it irresistible, so I’m using it already!

It goes with so many things – who knew that Loganberry was such a useful colour?! It’s big enough for all the important things a lady needs and has a subtle metallic sparkle which adds a little occasion.

I bought it in the 1/2 price or less SALE and there’s some still available here – it’s a great buy and even has a strap so you can use it as a shoulder bag when you’re about town.

Another bag I have admired all winter is this gorgeous suede oxblood bag – it’s bigger for more convenience but is still elegant enough to dress for dinner in Mayfair.

Even better it’s 1/2 price and comes in two other colours dark khaki and cloud pink!! I would use it when I have my camera with me. It also transfers into a more casual look.

Did you know that there is a move towards Victoriana influences in fashion? That’s why you’ll find lace up boots around. As cute as the ones are with ribbons – I think they are a touch girly for me so these ones are perfect and you guessed it – they are 1/2 price!!

Just in case you fancy a court shoes these ones go with this outfit beautifully (yes, lovelies – they are also 1/2 price!).

So, next time you get the opportunity to dine out in Mayfair, you can’t go wrong in an elegant silk satin dress, a cute pair of heeled boots and a stylish bag. My advise when planning to dress for dinner in Mayfair – go glam or go home!

    Good to meet another London blogger. I can’t say I’ve eaten often in Mayfair but I can see that the dress is perfectly elegant. I’d make a mess of silk though. My London eat outs tend to be black tie or post work such us at the Lancaster . I did a post early December on a couple of outfits I used in November.

    Maria, this dress is spectacular! I love the color, the kimono style, the handkerchief hem, and the subtle print along the hem. And then your booties are so amazing, too. This outfit is so stunning all around! Thanks so much for sharing at my link up!

    Silk is my favourite material. There’s something about it that makes you feel special when you wear it. I love the detailed hem on this dress and cuffs and the colour is gorgeous! Staying in a Mayfair hotel sounds exciting too! I want to do that! xx

      We stayed a night just before Christmas and London was so quiet it was wonderful. I think everyone had already done their shopping and London looked so beautiful. x

      Thank you Yvonne! It is such a swish part of London it deserves a little silk x

    I love the court shoes and the necklace (both LK Bennett) and I must say when I was younger I saw the shop as something my nan would wear for a special occasion, but there are some really lovely stuff that I’d wear if I had the money! (could i get away with splurging once my redundancy money comes in??? hahaha)
    Thank you for joining us at #TriumphantTales. I hope to see you back next week!

      I love L.K.Bennett! I have always especially loved their shoes and bags, so elegant and stylish – but more recently I have bought a couple of dresses from them too and they are my husbands favourites! I guess I’ll be buying more… haha! x

  15. January 10, 2018 / 2:59 pm

    What a great dress!
    Absolutely gorgeous.
