- Think about what you feel most comfortable in usually. If its pants, wear them, if its flats wear them. Nothing will make you feel worse than teetering on 6 inch stillettos if you rarely wear heels. Just dial up the luxury – choose pants made of silk or flats with serious sequin/embellishment and you won’t look out of place
- Luxury fabrics are a must – steer well clear of denim, cork, raffia and even linen (unless you are overseas in a tropical location where the dress code is much more casual) and stick to classic shapes rather than statement styles/colours. No neon!
- As weddings usually involve A LOT of standing around, often on grass, think about wearing a wedge instead of a thin heel which will sink into grass, so make sure they are comfortable and have a fairly sturdy base.
The above photo is of me from a wedding I went to in March 2011 – I’m wearing a green silk maxi dress (ebay score), green silk blazer from J Crew (secondhand) and cobalt blue suede flats from Zara. I also wore a fringed blue silk scarf. I had lots of comments on my outfit and was the only one who wasn’t freezing during English March spring weather!
