I wouldn’t call myself traditional when it comes to wedding guest outfits. I’m not the biggest fan of floral, flouncy dresses. I think it’s nice to look like a bit more thought has gone into it and to show your personality by creating a look that reflects who you are and how you feel but still in-keeping with the occasion.
This year I’m on the hunt for separates that are going to work really well together as an outfit for a formal occasion like a wedding or on their own. I don’t want something that’s going to sit in my wardrobe for my next “big” occasion. Usually when this happens, when the next occasion occurs I just want to buy something else anyway!
Although this is a dress, when I saw this image of Keira Knightley in 2012 wearing this piece by Mary Katranzou, I loved the silhouette. The midi-length in a fit and flare style.
I want to go with a skirt as it’ll be more versatile then work the rest of the outfit around it.
There’s also the races and a whole host of Summer events coming up and these skirts will work amazingly for all of them…
The Malta Skirt by Baukjen. Cool sophistication. With a bright jacket this would be a little unexpected for a wedding and I like that.
Arianna jacquard skirt by Boden in beautiful tropical peach. I love the texture of this one.
I saw this on Amanda, the Online Stylist on her photoshoot for Wishbone and loved it straight away. Paired down with navy and neutrals this would make an amazing statement. Wishbone is available from John Lewis online.
And of-course there’s the three at the top of the page…ahh…decisions! I can feel a mass order and trying on session coming.
