It’s so easy to conform to what we consider to be traditional ‘wedding guest’ outfits as soon as the invites arrive, but is that the best way to go about approaching occasionwear? Who better to ask for advice than Anna Vitiello and Florrie Thomas, the fashion experts and creative duo behind the Instagram account, &Finally, for their thoughts on the topic? Whether you’re heading to a beach wedding, a city ceremony or have received an evening invite, this curation will help you think outside the box when it comes to accessorising.
The jumpsuit has well and truly secured its position as an evening hero, sometimes even rivaling the dress when it comes to stand-out style after hours. Recent seasons, however, have seen its relevance expand across a host of occasions. Whether you’re a committed fan or are yet to experiment with the look, now is the time to think outside the box and bring the one-piece right to the forefront of your everyday rotation. We look a little closer at the SS16 collection and how best to style each look for now.
We ventured over to Toronto last week where figures from the Canadian fashion industry gathered at the Cluny bistro and boulangerie to enjoy a taste of what’s to come from Reiss for AW16.
It wasn’t only the clothes that guests hungrily pored over though. Invitees dined from a three course menu (putting paid to that nagging rumour that fashion people simply pick unenthusiastically at canapés) and drank bespoke cocktails as talk swiftly turned to who wanted what for next season.
See how the dinner unfolded below.
Planned and curated over a six month timeline, Poolside is one of the Getty Image gallery’s biggest exhibits of the year. The presentation celebrates the work of one of the most influential magazine photographers of the 50s, 60s and 70s, Slim Aarons, and it presents an idea of escapism that links perfectly with the start of the summer season. We caught up with the gallery manager, Anthony Gammell to talk through the exhibit that inspired the Reiss SS16 swimwear designs.
Poolside can be found at Getty Images Gallery, 46 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DX
Open until the 7th May, 10-5.30pm Monday – Friday and 12 – 5.30pm on Saturday
This season sees the most feminine colour in the spectrum – pink – shift into focus. Imagined in everything from soft petal shades to a deeper, dusky iteration, it takes on a wholly sophisticated guise that makes colour ever more approachable.

As wedding season beckons and outfit options push their way to the forefront of many-a guest’s mind, we tackle the age-old question; can you wear white to a wedding? Eleanor Searle, the Reiss Marketing Manager, says no, but Annette Blacker, Creative Brand Manager, offers her argument for in a debate-style piece that may (or may not) help you to decide.
Beautifully tailored spring suiting is the ultimate workplace investment and whether worn together or styled individually, the navy Delo separates are a particularly classic option. This season, why not push the hardest working items in your wardrobe that little bit further with our alternative styling options.
Exclusively designed in house each season, the Reiss prints are a key part of any spring/summer collection and this season, it’s the tonal blue and grey Moonlight Shimmer design that steals the focus. We look a little closer into what it takes to go from an initial idea to a print that captures the mood of the season as well as the brand’s identity in our Q&A with print designer, Eva Haluszka.
Innately feminine and especially relevant in warmer climes, lace continues to hold its reputation for occasionwear perfection in SS16.
