Wedding Season – Style by Daryl Downing

What to wear to a summer wedding? Looking great is important, while at all costs not upstaging the bride.

Never wear white or cream and try to avoid black, especially if it is a day time wedding.

Think about where the wedding is being held.

If there is grass or beach sand involved, choose the right shoes. Sorry girls, that means leave the stilettos at home!

If you’re part of the bridal party or a family member and may be in formal photos you may want to check that your colour choice won’t clash.

Here are a few fail proof options:

This outfit would be perfect for a wedding with an evening reception. Keep accessories and makeup minimal. You’re definitely not going to look like a bridesmaid. For a flattering silhouette wear culottes with heels to elongate your legs.

These beautiful summer colours would be perfect for a daytime wedding, but would work equally well going into the evening. The top is slightly cropped, but fear not as with the higher sitting waistband of the skirt your midriff will not be on display.

Pear shaped girls with slightly larger hips will love this outfit as the skirt will even out the hips, the wedge will lengthen the leg and the pattern on the top will draw the eye upwards.

Separates are a great option if you find it difficult to find dresses that fit on top and bottom.

The top of this dress can be tide in 15 different ways to create a look that will suit both your shape and the occasion. The pastel shade is on trend, but if not to your taste the dress comes in 4 different shades.

Wear the maxi dress with flats and again keep accessories minimal. The drop earrings would look lovely with hair pulled back off the face.

This dress would suit a slim athletic or shapely hourglass frame as it defines the waist perfectly.
