So one of my closest friends is getting married in June and i have been searching for a dress to wear and not really finding much. I know i have plenty of time but i hate leaving things like this to the last minute.

I have bought this red coast dress which i sort of love.... the only thing i am unsure of is if the off the shoulder look is a bit last year IYSWIM.

What do you think, should i keep it or keep looking?

I love this dress. I love the colour and the style. A definite keep from me!

Thank you Scarlett i love it too, and the fabric is gorgeous . Obviously i just know the off the shoulder look was a big thing last year and didn't know if by June it will just look quite dated, a first world problem i know blush

Lots of off the shoulder stuff in the shops for this summer still so I don't think it will look dated by June. It's a lovely colour.

I like it too, June isn't that far away, and it's such a lovely dress I'd wear it even when off the shoulder isn't so high fashion anyway.

Thank you for all your opinions. I know what you mean, it is a beautiful dress in its own right not just because of the 'fashion' off the shoulder look.

I think i will keep it, it is super comfortable, a lovely colour, and very simple yet stunning.

I love the dress, though not sure if it;s something I would wear as not too keen on off the shoulder...but it's a lovely dress.

Oh thank you blush

Just have to decide how to accessorize it now.... don't want anything too OTT, want to keep things simple like the dress hmm

I'd be tempted to chuck in some leopard print strappy sandals and a tan or gold bag. Maybe a boxy clutch?

Love the dress! Wear it. You'll look fab.

Love it.

I want one.

Absolutely stunning!

Off the shoulder is everywhere this season. To the point that I'm struggling to find anything to wear that isn't off the shoulder (or cold shoulder).

EnidButton Thu 13-Apr-17 17:44:11

Your dress is very nice btw. smile

Sorry to buck the trend, but I wouldn't wear anything that colour to a wedding - you'd upstage the couple in any group photos, or they'll have to print in black and white [voice of bitter experience]. And with gold and leopard print sounds so tarty. Weddings are not nightclubs.

Lovely dress

Baconbinge Thu 13-Apr-17 19:43:46

This is it on

Shimmer do you think? I have never been to a wedding where the couple have been upstaged... that hadn't even entered my head.

TheBogQueen Thu 13-Apr-17 19:46:01

You look gorgeous

Wear it

SunshineOutdoors Thu 13-Apr-17 19:47:42

That looks amazing. I want that dress now

Much nicer on you than the Coast model. You'll look great and definitely won't upstage the bride!
