WHAT TO WEAR: TO A WEDDING

17.05.14

The sun is shining, it's a Saturday in mid-May and the chances are that if you aren't getting ready to attend a wedding today, you surely will be at some point this summer? Always fun, but a bit of a sartorial worry - what to wear to a wedding that looks stylish and interesting but still appropriate? Read on as we discuss what we'll be wearing to friends' nuptials this year.

A JUMPSUIT

The contemporary alternative to a dress, a jumpsuit says you're a little bolder with your fashion choices and aren't afraid to experiment and make a statement. The ideal style is luxe and louche, and if it's scattered with a  delicate print it will sum up the season's mood for Modern Femininity.

Try one our jumpsuits, heeled sandals and clutch bags.

SHORTS

Yes. You can wear shorts to a wedding. We're not talking casual bottom-skimming styles, but rather a crisp, tailored pair of shorts with a matching jacket. Without a doubt it's the maverick's choice, totally pushing dress codes to one side, so we suggest you wear it as a suit with a contrasting colour to add a little zing.

Try mixing a silk top, blazer jackets, shorts, sandals and clutch bags.

A DRESS

It's a given, your go-to and a failsafe option, but the real skill in pulling on a dress for a wedding, is cutting a unique look among the many. Our advice is to forgo bright colours and prints and keep things simple. The contemporary cut on this dress paired with a textured clutch and a t-bar sandal will strike the perfect balance.

Try our Lana dress, Sienna sandals and Minty clutch.

A SUIT

In a similar vein to the jumpsuit, a trouser suit goes down a storm at a wedding and seriously carves out your style credentials. Choose a soft pastel palette and a slim fit and you'll cut a sleek silhouette. Decorate your lapel with a fresh flower corsage for an appropriate added touch.

Try our Blondel top, Raffa jacket, Lille trousers and Sienna sandals.

A MAXI

If you're lucky enough to be invited to an uber-glamorous wedding, then it's your one excuse to invest in a floor-sweeping maxi dress. Immediately fabulous, choose something beautifully light and floaty in a summery shade and it will be your keep-forever dress.
