TREND WATCH: WEDDING DRESSING

Spring is here and so too the season’s stiff-card invitations to the year’s round of weddings. In Britain, the rules can occasionally be perplexing: hat or no hat? Should you wear a sleeve? Will bare arms offend the vicar/bride/entire third pew? If in doubt, lean toward the conservative – but that doesn’t mean things need to be dull.

Emilia Wickstead teamed a candy pink mini coat-dress with a tangerine knee length coat for a look that was at once covered-up and sexy, and a neat tailored playsuit came with a matching duster coat and was just far enough from white on the colour wheel to be appropriate.

 

 

 

Miu Miu’s neat pencil skirts and boxy jackets were smart and stylish – but replace the midriff-baring blouse with a silk shirt for a church-ready ensemble – while Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi at Preen used a sporty stripe to give a lace dress a fresh twist.

 

   

 

 Look to Chanel for ladylike skirtsuits in eye-catching patterns, or try Pucci’s flirty little shorts suit for a youthful alternative. Valentino and Gucci’s boldly printed dresses are a feminine answer to summer’s craze for all things Seventies, while Marni’s vibrant prints are perfect for garden receptions.
