Getting #itWOTY19 Inspired: What To Wear To Our Most Glamorous Event Of The Year

Tickets? Yes. Outfit organised? Yes. Still, fashionably late? Absolutely.

Let the countdown begin: T-5 days

Irish Tatler’s annual Woman Of The Year Awards is upon on us - and we are extremely excited - which means we can finally justify pulling out all of the wardrobe-stops in preparation. Post-fashion month and The Emmy's, we are coming into our very own award season with a fresh and fashion loaded perspective.

The Women Of The Year Awards gathers the country’s most incredible women in celebration of their work and accomplishments. The event champions women who lift us up and truly inspire us to be the change we want to see in the world. It is going to be an electric night at The Shelbourne Hotel filled with Gatsby-esque champagne, laughter, perhaps a few tears of joy, and of course, style galore. 

Fore-shadowing the event's glamour, we have listed a couple of top-pick outfit pieces to give you some fashion inspiration on what to wear to the event.

Happy shopping!


Mini camisole dress, €49.95, Zara - SHOP 

The classic Little Black Dress is a staple feature in any event style guide, and also your wardrobe. With the freedom to get creative and match with a statement earring of a bold shoe choice, an LBD guarantees a successful outfit for a special night out - even if said night out isn't as successful. 

The Showstopper

Ruched silk satin dress, €1,950, Dolce & Gabanna - SHOP 

For those that don't mind making an entrance a dress that encapsulates retro glamour should do the trick. Colour, texture, and cut can lift an outfit even before adding accessories and make-up. Always a feminine, flattering choice for that fierce movie-star vibe. 

The Scandi-Edit

Leopard print georgette dress, €209, GANNI - SHOP

Effortlessly cool Scandi-style is the latest industry obsession. With organza pieces, puff sleeves and oversized tailoring outfits transition from day-to-night so you are ready for any occasion. Practicality meets fashion, a dream! 

The Sharp Suit

Dresses just aren't some people's thing and for those, event dressing would be a whole lot more difficult without the classic tuxedo. Secure the right shape and fit and you’ll not only have a throw-on-and-go look for nighttime, but two of the hardest working separates your wardrobe has ever witnessed. 

AUTOGRAPH Tailored Tuxedo Blazer, €135, M&S - SHOP 

The Trend Piece

Square toe sandal, €89, & Other Stories - SHOP 

A strappy sandal is a perfect match for any outfit that need's a little character. Extremely flattering, attractive and more comfortable than a stiletto, you can enjoy your night in style without using an entire box of Compeed Blister patches. 

the Bare Necessities

Mini bag, €450, BY FAR - SHOP 

When innovative young designer Jacquemus debuted the mini bag he unleashed the minimalism trend that we were all in need of. The French just do it better, don't they? Featured on the arms of even the Kardashian crew, a lightweight handbag easily matched with any outfit proves that less is more and oh-so chic.
