NOOOOO I think cardigan is fine if it's fairly classy and you put on a few jools etc? Day dress to me just means not evening dress? Wear whatever you'd wear to a fairly smart wedding?
Question marks because I've never been so am not certain. I'd say just think what would Jackie O do, and that doesn't mean necessarily wearing exactly what she would have worn in the sixties, but she wouldn't have gussied herself up in a big suit with a hurge jacket IMO.
NB I would indeed wear a big suit because I am an 80s kid. You're clearly not.
What a small world Sparkler! Have just read that there will be 8000 people there, so I'm sure there will be people more underdressed than me, whatever I wear!
Can anyone suggest a nice shop for suits? Just had a flick thru Next.co.uk, and they don't seem to have any nice ones in. Will prob be a skirt and jkt, or dress and jkt, as I always find trousers too long for me.
Thanks for your input acnebride - I'd love to wear the outfit I already had in mind - I wore it to dh's passing out (Navy graduation thingie) when I was 10 wks pg with ds, so it has lots of happy memories.
Thinking back, it was probably a similar dress code that day, and I felt fine (but was so smiley inside anyway that it would have taken a lot to dent me )
I've never been either but I would second the smart wedding advice. Have you got a Coast near you? I think they're always good for occassion type wear. What about Whistles or Jigsaw if that's not too pricey?
