Mention the colour Peach in relation to weddings to people of a certain age and they’ll probably pull a face and proceed to tell you about a 1980s wedding they went to full of puffy sleeves, satin and lace (or in my case wore the colour as a bridesmaid)
Normally you’d find me twirling away in a skater-style dress, but this time I wanted to do things a little differently and talk tailoring. Now, as someone who prefers the terms ‘over-sized’ and ‘slouchy’, tailoring is a subject I normally shy away from. However, every now and then I think I should aim to look a little neater, more pulled together and genuinely be brave enough to embrace my curves and flatter them in some well-tailored garments.
The shops are filled with pencil skirts, slim-legged trousers and for the very brave, short suits. I’ve styled three looks which embrace this form-flattering trend but I’ve done it my way, so expect leather, neon pink and some beautiful heels.
Everyone has a little all-white outfit tucked away in the back of their wardrobes, ready to pull out the moment the sun comes out. Whether it’s a white shirt to wear to work, a white dress to show off your holiday tan or a white short suit, we all have our favourites.
Mine has to be the little white dress. Now I’m incredibly pasty but I don’t let this hold me back. Oh no. As soon as the sun shines, that’s it. My little white dress is dusted off and worn once again.
This summer, white dresses fall into three main styles, minis, cut out and embroidered. All three trends were big features on the catwalks and can now be welcomed into your wardrobe.
In my previous post, I emphasized the main differences between an English wedding and a French wedding and looked at how some ideas could be used in the UK.
I firmly believe that every female needs at least one dress in their wardrobe that can be rolled out for any occasion. Whether that means a last-minute wedding outfit, an impromptu garden party (can you tell I’m dreaming of brighter days?) or even a christening, it should cover you for any eventuality.
