The summer is the perfect time to play with indulgent prints and this spring and summer, prints are going to be huge. From bold floral prints to statement geometric patterns, opt for colour and make the most of the summer sunshine with a sleeveless dress that shows a little leg.

Top & Midi Combination

Either opting for a top and midi skirt combination or a dress that gives this look is an elegant way to look slightly more casual but still certainly dressy enough for a daytime wedding. Pastel colours up top and a beautiful floral print skirt work flawlessly for an outdoor wedding. This is particularly true when paired with a statement hat or headpiece.

Try a jumpsuit

Most ladies traditionally opt for a dress or dress and jacket look for a wedding. However, customs have evolved and trouser suits or jumpsuits are now an ultra-chic way to change up your wedding style. Opt for jumpsuits with palazzo-style wide legs and stick to thicker and more flattering fabrics for the perfect polished look.

Dress & jacket with a twist

Often when we think of a dress and jacket combination for a formal occasion, we think dated and even, dare we say it, frumpy? But modern dress and jacket sets are now chic, stylish and oh-so-contemporary, so it’s well worth considering giving one a go. From our stunning brand Carla Ruiz, who creates feminine, yet edgy sets that combine lace, ruffles and print, to classic yet unique styles from Linea Raffaelli, you might be surprised at how you feel in the perfect dress and jacket set.

Full length and fabulous

Although full-length is only a requirement at a black-tie wedding, it’s still a striking and ultra-glam option that you could go for at a less formal big day. From evening wear to a statement printed maxi dress, perfect for a summer garden wedding, sometimes full-length is exactly what you’ve been looking for.
