Attending other people’s weddings is so much more enjoyable when you know what you want to wear and how to wear it.
Church ceremony: good girl-next-door
Know that the pastor will be watching you so save those low-cut confections for some other time. Instead, stand out from the congregation with clever geometric details and eye-catching colours.
Tea party: Alice In Wonderland
Do it carefree and casual with pretty pastels – fur accents add a luxe touch. An easy A-line silhouette also allows for a few more tea cakes.
Cocktail: celebrity on the red carpet
Take a leaf from Hollywood. Let your outfit do the talking: 1) a suitable flash of skin, 2) a flattering hue, and 3) an au courant style.
Dinner reception: model with a mission
Black to an after-dark gig? Unless you intend for the hosts to forget you were even there. Shaggy tassels that move as you boogie will keep every photographer’s lens on you. #selfielove
Black tie: geek-meets-Granny chic
You can turn Granny’s wardrobe upside down, raid a vintage store or get a bespoke number. Looking as if you’d just stepped out of a vintage calendar is a surefire way to get the conversation started.
