Up Close And Personal Styling

We all know summer is great partly due to all of the wonderful occasions that happen in the season. When the weather’s so beautiful, there’s no excuse not to attend events, from weddings to casual cocktails with the girls to garden parties.

However, we know how difficult it can be to find the perfect outfit for each event. So, in the name of summer fashion, our personal styling team have done the hard work for you and styled two looks for two occasions.


Wedding Guest Glam Outfit One

We all know it’s tricky to get a wedding look right. After all, you will want to be remembered for the right reasons - your fabulous dress sense!

As a safe option, we recommend a summer dress. However, don’t be fooled into thinking ‘safe’ means ‘boring’! Just look at this fun and funky printed dress by Ella Boo, for instance. The bright and bold pattern is fun and playful without being too showy. We also love the classy long cut of the maxi dress, which can be worn time and time again.

Cover up with a fuschia pink shawl which mirrors the dress’ fun colour scheme. We love the dreamy waterfall cut which will help you to float through the big day.

Compliment the bright colour of your outfit with, very on-trend, silver accessories. A peak of the silver Unisa shoes emerging from the long dress is very sophisticated. They are also great for adding height, but still being comfortable for the long day ahead.

A touch of Envy jewellery is always the finishing touch! Tie your whole outfit together with these beautiful silver Envy earrings, which will look fantastic with an updo.

They say guests can’t wear white, but a soft pastel blue is the next best thing! You can’t beat a floral dress at a summer’s wedding and in particular this gorgeous piece by Access Fashion. The knee-length hem is perfect for a chic wedding look. It’s not too short but will show off your figure in a flattering way.

Pair with this Fee G cropped cream jacket for an elegant and demure look for when the evening gets a bit chillier. Add a fashionable edge to the outfit with these Unisa metallic slingbacks which help ensure your look is polished and pristine.


A British Summer: Going Out Look

Berties Clothing A British Summer Going OutGoing out this summer? Look no further than Fabienne Chapot! Fun meets fashion with this designer range. The bold summer printed dress is bound to turn heads for all the right reasons. Flattery is the name when it comes to fit of the dress. The cinched-in waist is perfect for showing an hourglass figure and the floaty bottom is very in-vogue. It’s like it was designed with summer evenings in mind. 

Emphasise your dress and let it do the talking by pairing with neutral. These Unisa mules are a take on Gucci, whilst this tanned Coccinelle bag helps complete a sophisticated look.


A British Summer: Casual Look

Is there anything better than those relaxed summer afternoons? Of course not! So spend those afternoons in both comfort and style. When the weather is hot, the last thing anyone wants is to be uncomfortable in stuffy clothes.

Opt for a floaty Odd Molly blouse, which features an adjustable neck with tie strings and frill sleeves. It can also be worn either as a singoalla or square neck. Perfect for adjusting in the heat so you can be comfortable and casual all day long. We love the boho pattern as well, which is one of the hottest trends in women’s fashion right now. Odd Molly UK are sustainable and environmentally aware so you can relax knowing you are also helping the planet.

Pair with white jeans from like-minded jean creators DL1961. These white jeans are a stretchy and ultra high rise. The colour helps to keep the outfit light and airy.

Unisa shoes are renowned for being comfortable and stylish. Just by looking at these stunning trainers you can instantly tell how comfortable they are! Perfect for a sports-luxe look where athlete meets catwalk.
