I have just been to a family wedding in Malta and wore a lovely Laura Ashley pink floral dress. I felt smart and yet really comfortable.
You may have noticed that although I am a real girly-girl, I don’t actually wear many dresses. I love jeans and trousers and opt for these over a dress all the time. So it is really nice to go to a formal wedding and get really dressed up.
There are so many gorgeous wedding guest outfits in the shops and online – and lots of variety!
These days I am always thinking of comfort as well as style. My criteria for a dress is that it has to be knee length (or thereabouts); I actually don’t mind my legs but I don’t want the dress to be too short. I also really dislike anything very strappy – and prefer the dress to be lined.
Here are some of my favourite dresses – from the current online sales – to wear to a summer wedding this season:
1/ LK Bennett at House of Fraser £195
2/ Phase Eight £120
3/ Betty Barclay at House of Fraser £105
4/ Phase Eight £88
5/ Boden £77.40
6/ Coast £49
7/ Laura Ashley £88.22
8/ Wallis £30
All would look great with heels, a jacket (or smart cardigan) and a clutch bag. Hat is optional.
Perfect, classic looking outfits for sipping champagne on the lawn in the sunshine and then kicking off your heels and dancing way into the night!
Love, Jess x
