I'm going to a wedding on saturday. I bought this dress from Cos but desperately need help to style it.
As you can imagine I like simple clean lines but also something a bit different. I'm 5.8 and slim. I can't do any shopping in person because I'm doing night shifts after looking after the children all day. Which is why I'm calling for any help.
I've been searching online for shoes and something to wear over the top but I'm at a loss. Shoes are more important though.
I'm open to all ideas!
Think this colour would look amazing with it but I think they're too spindley for me. So maybe after something a little bit more chunky without being too heavy? Was thinking silver, yellow or that coraly red colour?
Silver in my view. I think that looks cool whereas orange is a bit too loud for a wedding. I think a suede biker jacket would work in pale grey. The Telegraph did wedding cover ups at the weekend and suggested this or a velvet dressing gown style coat. No no bolero, fascinator and pashmina. I think if you can do a mix of pale grey/silver and the cobalt it would look chic. Maybe an orange chunky necklace? Or tassel earrings?
Hmm to be honest I'm happy to throw money at the problem, if it's something I can wear again. I'm taking on extra work at the moment, and haven't spent anything on myself (apart form this dress obviously) in a looooong time.
Those top shop shoes are also lovely. TBH, I think you know exactly what you're doing. Please beware the Fashion Rules, they are really mainly for those who have no innate sense of style. You clearly do.
