It’s that time of year. Wedding season. I used to take them for granted and throw on anything but now I am so grateful to be invited as they are few and far between, I want to make an effort. John Lewis has some lovely dresses, shoes and accessories to make dressing for silly season easy. Below are 5 different outfits for all manner of weddings.
Vixen Millinary Disc Hat £320
Upmarket colour combination. Pale blue and brown are lovely on those with ‘Spring colouring’. (Throw back tip from when I did women’s colour analysis.) Warm skin and golden hair and you wont look like mother of the bride (not that there is anything wrong with that, but there is a time and a place for everything and not looking like one when you have a 3 year old!)
Gina Bacconi Crochet Taupe Dress NOW £130
Slightly capped sleeve and flattering waistband.
LK Bennet Pale Blue Court £210
I know it is slightly naff these to do matchy matchy, but when it comes to a wedding, scrap that view point as it makes you look smart and like you have made an effort. Nothing red lips won’t cure anyway.
Reiss Twist Clutch Bag £110
Pleasing to the eye and could double up as a fan…
John Lewis Alex Shantung Red Disc Hat £60
A steal at this price and oh so glamorous.
Whistles Navy Lace Dress £195
I wore a navy lace dress to the last wedding I went to and didn’t have any complaints. Universally flattering colour and these arms are perfect for those with the onset of bingo wings.
KG Nude Suede Court Shoes £79
Suede Courts. Non descript, elongating and practical. Let the hat and clutch do the talking and let your feet take a step back (!)
Lulu Guinness Perspex Clutch £225
So fun. Would you? I would if it was less spenny, but Lulu Guinness Clutch’s are such an investment piece, I think YOU should…
Snoxells Black Occasion Hat £500
Not so easy to carry in your luggage, but take a hat box and you will be sure to wow if you get it there in one piece. It’s the coming back that might be a problem… #tired #hungover
Ted Baker Bardot Dress £349
Ethereal and feminine. Beaut.
Dune Block Heeled Blush Sandals £75
If you have dainty ankles (lucky you) you can pull off an ankle strap. Perfect for extra support!
Whistles Mock Croc Clutch £75
This is a timeless clutch that lets your outfit do the talking.
Snoxells Camilla Twisted Straw Hat £225
Original colour combincation – this takes you a step on from the usual fascinator, which unless it is something different, can’t say I am a fan of the ‘bog standard token bit of straw on your head’. (Do it or don’t do it, nothing inbetween).
Ghost Christy Black Dress £245
This dress could be pulled out again & again for casual, smart, evening. I love it. Perfect for who are on the tallish side already and want to be further elongated.
Mint Velvet Block Heels £129
Always struggle with what shoes to wear under long but these fit the bill. Love a stud too. Grrrr
Dune Yellow Clutch £60
Have to throw in a pom pom somewhere in this post. A yellow one too! It can’t fail to make you smile.
Rebecca Couture Disc Fascinator £260
This is utterly stylish. I love it. Pin your hair away from your face & keep everything else relatively simple. You could wear this with a black bin liner and no one would even look down.
Jigsaw Cut Out Black Dress £79
In case they do look down, wear this cut out dress. Not too tight so you can tuck into the eats without worrying about an expanding tum.
Carvela Wedges £100
Move away from the courts to give your outfit even more edge. Love these.
LK Bennett Orange Clutch Bag £225
Ah a bit of burnt orange accented with leopard skin. Draw the outfit together with this super cute clutch.
