STYLE ADVICE: What can I wear with this Phase Eight dress for a wedding?

Posted on: April 20, 2015

QUESTION: I’ve bought this dress from Phase Eight, £99, for a wedding at the weekend and I have no idea what best to accessorize it with in terms of jacket/cardigan (something to keep me warm) and what colours would be appropriate to go with it. I have a pair of cream wedges that I’m planning on wearing (for comfort) so think that nude tights will be necessary as well, but am stumped as to what else might go!

You are absolutely right in wanting something to keep your arms warm, especially into the evening when it can often get chilly. A cardigan will make the dress appear more casual, so we’d definitely recommend a structured blazer in one of the pink tones from the dress. With this in mind, we’ve found you a couple of options along with some accessories to complete your outfit:

1. Topshop blazer, £55: – A neutral coloured jacket will compliment the dress wonderfully. To emphasis your enviable figure and defined waist, look for a tailored fit as a boxy cut will swamp you:


2. Reiss heels, £129: – Picking out the pale blush shade from the dress again, we love these classic sling back courts as the heel is just high enough without being uncomfortable! Wedges are a great idea for comfort, however if they are a appear a little heavy to wear with a summer dress, we would suggest a nude court with a closed toe, as that way you can wear nude tights:


4. Dorothy Perkins earrings, now £7.50: – We’ve noticed your outfit is missing some bling! Jewelled earrings are a delicate and stylish way to bring some embellishment into your ensemble. These drop earrings will compliment your entire outfit and can easily be worn with other occasion dresses in your wardrobe:


5. Monsoon bag, £45: – Finally on to bags! You mentioned gold in your question which will work really beautifully with this outfit. The warm pinks from the dress will be enhanced by a metallic bag, and we adore this timeless beaded option from Monsoon. Wear as a clutch, or use the shoulder bag if you’ve got champagne in one hand and a camera in the other! Karen x
