STYLE ADVICE: I am looking for a dress for a black tie evening wedding.

Posted on: August 25, 2015

QUESTION: I have a black tie evening wedding to attend and am looking for a dress – budget £100.

ANSWER: We love a wedding with a twist and an evening wedding means you can turn up the glam factor with sweeping gowns in gorgeous colours.

1. Coast, dress £95:– Coast are always great for providing a huge selection of occassion wear for any event and they haven’t disappointed her with this gorgeous dress for your black tie wedding event. The lower v-neck accommodates a larger bust and the lace detail shoulder draws the eye and creates balance. I particularly love the pleating detail detail that skims nicely over the tummy area and again draws the eye in for a cinched waist.

garment-2766300-37607372. Violeta, dress now £39.99:- Grab this end of sale bargain from Mango, well within your budget and perfect for you. The fiery red is an ideal shade for an evening wedding and again the v-neck and draping does wonders to balance out your proportions. The jersey fabric will mean comfort all night and ease of wear.


3. Phase Eight, dress now £91:- Another red style maxi in a more scarlet shade, so perfect for wearing with red lipstick. The pleating and twist detail here do all the magic by creating a waist and drawing the eye in whilst concealing the tummy area. This jersey has a twist also in a more slinky feel, style with sandals and an embellished clutch.


4.Giles Deacon for Evans now £108:- Lastly try this jewel tone evening gown from the Giles Deacon for Evans range. Deacon has dressed many red carpet celebs such as SJP and Gwyneth Paltrow and often collaborates with high street brands (such as New Look). This has a flattering (higher waisted) fit-and-flare effect. Go for gold accessories with this awesome green shade. SarahA x
