With wedding season fast approaching it’s never too early to plan your killer outfit and now you can be the best dressed guest with our guide to stylish wedding wear.
Wedding outfits in particular require some serious thought with every detail needing careful consideration – no woman wants to turn up at a wedding in the same outfit as someone else! This is even more important if you have more than one wedding to go to in a year; it’s not always possible to buy a new outfit for every occasion so you want to be able to transform one outfit into many.
There is no hard and fast rule for wedding looks, although see our useful do’s and don’ts guide here, but you can change your look and make your outfit stand-out with stunning occasion accessories; jewellery, scarves, handbags, belts, shoes and head garments are all at our disposal.
We are lucky enough to have some top designer’s right on our door step and here we look at two of the most popular accessory choices…
Hats add an extra piece to your ensemble and can really make the outfit.
Rosie Olivia Millinery is a luxury collection of women’s hats and headwear producing two diverse ready-to-wear collections a year, Autumn Winter and Spring Summer. Located in Liverpool, Rosie Olivia designer hats are truly distinctive, create a statement, beautifully hand crafted by Rosie Olivia and are perfect for all occasions
Rosie Olivia Millinery also provides a special bespoke service where they will create a glamorous designer headpiece just for you – what better way to stand out at a wedding!
You can see more of the collections and find out more about bespoke ordering at www.rosieoliviamillinery.com.
Another beloved accessory is a scarf and they are one of the best choices when you want to freshen, change or update a look; they can be worn around the collar, can serve as a head garment, can be run through belt loops and be tied to your purses or handbag, adding that essential splash of colour or pattern.
Laura Orchant designs and produces luxury printed scarves. The stunning scarves – made from silk, mousseline and viscous – feel luxurious to touch, yet instantly transform a simple outfit into a head-turning statement.
Manufactured and produced exclusively in the UK, Laura herself lives in Hale Cheshire, a Laura Orchant piece explores femininity, embraces individuality, and preserves glamour; while maintaining the right amount of edge.
