STYLE ADVICE: Looking for a wedding outfit, for late May, budget £200

Posted on: March 24, 2014

QUESTION: I’m looking for a wedding outfit. Late may, all day guest. Budget £200 please.

ANSWER:  The wedding season is about to kick off and the best bit is being able to buy an amazing outfit for yourself and not feel guilty especially if you look for pieces that you can rework into your wardrobe for other events.

1. Warehouse dress, £70: – Although a lower neckline would be great for you as it would break up the look of your shoulders, a neckline with a contrast fabric or pattern can create an illusion and draw the eye downwards, which is what you are after, and being very slender, you can easily get away with this. We love this crochet detail dress from Warehouse which comes in an amazing bright blue colour which is not only one of your investment shades, but it’s super on trend too. The fitted waist with added detail is a great way to accentuate your waistline and pencil in some amazing curves:

This dress also comes in a softer coral shade if you prefer, which is again a colour that will look great on you:


2. Monsoon fascinator, £22: – Hats are still a wedding favourite, however lots of people are opting for the more modern and modest fascinator. A neutral shade would look fab with your other pieces and will be versatile for future weddings. If you love accessories, than a glam pair of earrings or a jewelled cuff would be a great addition to your outfit too:


3. Zara courts, £59.99: – There’s never really a time when metallics aren’t ‘in’, but this spring/summer is definitely having a metallic moment. Gold would look great with the colours of both these dresses, so incorporating some fab acessories in this tone would look fab. We adore this stunning pair of pointed courts with double ankle strap, which are super affordable and will go with everything. Choosing a closed toe court shoe is great for a spring wedding:


4. Monsoon clutch, £35: – An embellished/metallic clutch would of course look great and really finish off your look. However another option is to go with a complementing print clutch bag for a slightly more fun look. Bright, wild prints are all over right now as they are another key trend for the coming season. The embellished clutch we have selcted for you here combines a little of the two trends and is absolutely gorgeous; it would pull your look together beautifully:


5. H&M tuxedo blazer £24.99: If the weather is playing up style your outfit with a chic tuxedo blazer in a crisp cool white. A perfect piece to pair with jeans, a t-shirt and flats for a casual weekend look:


We hope we have given you some fashion inspiration, do let us know how you get on as it’s great receiving feedback. Enjoy the wedding! Ria x
