We’re entering that period in the year where, if you’re at my stage in life, it’s weddings, weddings and…yep, more weddings! I’m not complaining, I love weddings – especially the dressing up bit!
But what to wear?! If you’re like me, you’ll never want to wear the same outfit twice, where would be the fun in that? Besides, each wedding is a different time, place, setting, emotion. For me, each one is seen as an opportunity to try something new. So what’s new for 2011??
How about the Colour Popping Blocking trend, as seen on the runways of Prada, Jil Sander, Gucci and Sonia Rykiel:
Go for deep, rich, bright colours and accessorise boldly.
Or maybe you like a bit of the 70s Glamour Puss look a la Marc Jacobs?:
Another trend for Spring/Summer 2011 is Angel White (my favourite collection of the season – Dolce and Gabbana):
Just one problem….this is more appropriate for the bride than for the guest – so beware! It’s not appropriate to wear such a beautiful white dress if you’re not the bride!
You could try the Erdem take on the Angel White trend – hints of red break it up:
If not white, maybe you want to keep it light and go for this season’s new nude, known as “Barely There” – this trend was seen on the runway of Chloe and Versace:
Or, finally, meld into the spring fields with some LOUD PRINTS! If you go for a Stella McCartney piece you can even hide among the lemon trees…
For a more sinister take on the LOUD PRINT trend try Christopher Kane:
With these five Spring/Summer 2011 trends under your belt you can’t fail to find the perfect wedding outfit.
