STAR STYLE: Looking for a wedding guest dress for my teenage daughter

Posted on: April 14, 2014

QUESTION: Please could you advise – my 14 yr daughter will be attending a wedding in the spring and is has a size 14 bust but only size 10 waist/hips. What style/ideas would best suit her body shape? Budget £100

ANSWER:  When picking the outfit, look for  v-necks or scoop necks, rather than high-neck styles, as the lower neckline will create a very flattering upper half by complementing the bust. A fit-and-flare style will balance out her upper and lower body proportions. With this in mind, we’ve picked some of our favourite options we think you and your daughter will love:

1. Asos Dress, £31.50: – Deep purple looks lovely all year round, so your daughter will definitely get a lot of wear out of this option! The pleated waist will even out her proportions and the dress length sits very appropriately just above the knee. A delicate necklace will be the only piece of jewellery she’ll need:


2. Oasis Dress, £55: – Cowl necklines sit really well with a larger bust as the loose fabric floats over rather than hugs the bust line. The belt will accentuate your daughters slim waist whilst the soft pleats will create a lovely line over her hips: A small cream shoulder bag and matching cream open toe flats will be a wonderful accompaniment to this summery coral number:


3. Asos Dress, £47.50: – A short sleeve is ideal for spring as your daughters shoulders will be covered during the wedding ceremony without needing to buy a shawl. The lace details also adds an elegant feminine touch and Dressipi HQ are raving about this deep turquoise, flattering for every skin tone!


4. Warehouse Dress, £65: -Bright florals are incredibly sophisticated and spot on for spring! This dress will help create the enviable 1950’s silhouette, perfect for keeping your daughters modesty whilst showing a fun playful side! Team with a cropped hot pink cardigan and a pair of metallic ballet flats:


We hope this has given some fashion inspiration for your daughter! We hope she has a wonderful time at the wedding and do let us know how it all goes as we love receiving feedback. Karen x
