With weddings, parties and events steadily filling our social calendars again, dressing up to celebrate has never felt so good. After a dreary winter and a chilly spring, we're throwing open our wardrobes to the best and brightest occasionwear the shops have to offer. And one place that is getting the party edit right is Karen Millen.
2022 is the year of the Y2K aesthetic, reaffirming our love for some of the most iconic looks of the decade: mini hemlines, cropped tops and plenty of high-octane glamour. Thankfully, Karen Millen has found the chicest way to incorporate the trend into your closet (with a little extra grown-up polish). Enter the KM collection with model and actress Paulina Porizkova.

Slick, confident, and full of head-turning looks, this is an occasionwear collection that turns up the heat. From sparkling slip dresses to toughened-up tailoring, there is a piece for every kind of party.
We've chosen our favourite pieces from the edit and the rest of the Karen Millen site and put together 10 outfits that will attract attention on the dance floor this summer, so keep scrolling to see (and shop) more.
If you're ready to fully embrace the bare-legged season, swap your slouchy suit for shorts. This versatile set can be worn with flat sandals for everyday wear and dressed up with a heel for occasions.
