As we enter into the wedding season this summer, searching for the perfect wedding ensemble can prove to be quite tricky. First there are themed ceremonies to consider, and then there’s the likelihood of being on your feet, dancing all night long. Most importantly, you don’t want to upstage the bride.
To start with, embrace the sunny climes and step out in our summer best. Think flowy, season-appropriate dresses, chic but sensible shoes, and statement accessories, as the main criteria. To kick-off the search, check out what’s in store for you.
Textiles, drapes, elegant flows are the type of red-carpet wedding looks you’re looking for. The summery season calls for a hint skin too – think a peek of leg, bared arms, and airy fabrics that make you feel weightless and ethereally sexy at the same time.
As occasion dictates, flora in any manner makes an appearance. Wear it as a print, appliqued, as elaborate as you please. Match it with luxurious silk for an opulent effect, and you’ve successfully glamourised floral patterns fit for weddings.
If ever an occasion called for practical shoes, it would be weddings. Ditch the painful heels and pinched toes and opt for flats or slight wedges, and free the feet in these chic pairs. Trust us, you’ve never truly enjoyed a wedding until you properly rule the dancefloor.
Clutches more than complete your ensemble – they make or break the entire do. Opt for one that’s compact and cute, handy (in all sense of the word) and charming enough to start conversations. Rule of thumb – pick one with competent flair to the dress.
Finally, let your personality shine through in your accessory of choice. Necklaces are a safe bet: gold for understated, floral themed for the ladylike and bold for the bon vivant. Work the accessory as an extension to your outfit as much as it is your identity.
