STYLE ADVICE: I need to find a cocktail dress for two weddings.

Posted on: June 15, 2015

QUESTION: I need to find a cocktail dress for two summer weddings. I had a baby 6 weeks ago though and while I’m broadly back to my size ten, my tummy and boobs are a little larger than normal so I need to take this into consideration with the dress! Happy to spend up to £150.

ANSWER: Congratulations on the birth of your child, such wonderful news and thanks for the picture  – and how very exciting that you have two weddings to attend this summer. We’ve chosen a few options we think you’ll love:

1. Reiss dress, now £145: – We’re starting off with full-on cocktail glamour! This Reiss dress is a fabulous all-year-roud option, team with open toe sandals in the summer, or black tights and closed toe courts for the colder months. The fit-and-flar style will draw the eye to your smallest area, whilst the flared skirt gives you a beautifully flattering silhouette:

garment-2311989-29328892. French Connection dress, £45: – Now for a really classic wardrobe staple – the wrap dress. This style is absolutely perfect for you as once again, the waist is emphasised and the soft pleating over your tummy hides anything you may not want to show! Navy is a versatile and easy colour to wear, just pop on a pair of metallic courts and a pashmina in a contrasting shade. Job done!:


3. Adrianna Papell, £130: If you fancy going for something truly showstopping, try a bright tone like this gorgeous hot red. As red it one of your fave shades to wear, we couldn’t help but put it in the mix! The ‘v’ neck shows just the right amount of décolletage whilst also elongating your upper body and the frill front adds a lovely feminine touch…it’s also very similar in fit and style to the dress you are wearing in the picture you sent us:


4. Anthropologie dress, £158: – Lastly we’ve gone for something really summery and stylish. Antrhopologie always create the most wonderful prints and this floral frock is no exception. Wear with either nude, navy or metallic sandals and match this tone to your clutch bag. One piece of jewellery will finish the outfit off perfectly, we’d recommend a pair of drop earrings or a statement bracelet:


We hope this has given some fashion inspiration, have a superb time at both weddings and let as know how you get on as we love to receive feedback. Karen x
