WEDDING GUEST STYLE INSPIRATION: THE TEAL GREEN DRESS

This is the fourth of my wedding guest inspiration posts, here are the links to the first, second and third ones. The purpose of these posts is to give you some ideas on how to mix and match your accessories and dresses to get more value and wear out of them.

???????????????????????????????

This green dress is by Adrianna Papell and I bought it from Nordstroms in the January sale.  I’m jumping on the band wagon here as nearly every other dress on the Rose of Tralee was green. The darker colour of this dress is probably more appropriate for a wedding that is outside of summer: I wore it to a wedding in mid March. There is a lot of beautiful detail in this dress. I love the pleated one shoulder and the twist at the waist creates some very flattering pleats across the tummy. I’m sure you’ll find similar dresses hitting the shops in the Autumn Winter ranges.

And now to accessorize it. First up, we have the berry pink. While bright fuchsia would work well, I have a richer berry toned pink.

The wrap and bag are Star by Julien McDonald at Debenhams.  The shoes are Menbur and I have made no secret of my love for Menbur shoes.

??????????????????????

The necklace and earrings are from Boots.

Second, we have purple

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

This blazer is by Cutie and I got it from iclothing.ie. I got the bag in Penneys/Primark ages ago. Since the previous Wedding Guest Style posts I’m managed to find the perfect purple dressy shoes. They are from Shoes of Prey (shoesofprey.com) and thats a website that allows you to design your own shoes and they make them for you to your specifications. Totes cool but not the cheapest but at least you are paying to get exactly what you want (you can spend ages playing around with designs, I didn’t go mad with the design so they will work with lots of outfits).

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

The necklace and earrings are from Pulse Accessories. The colour of the jewellery is actually a darker purple in real life but its hard to capture in photos.

Finally is orange.

The shoes are Kurt Geiger, the wrap, fascinator, and bag are from Glitzi Bitz.

??????????????????????
The earrings and ring are amber and from eBay. This necklace is from Gerards.

Have you any other colours to suggest to wear with teal?

WEDDING GUEST STYLE INSPIRATION: THE ORANGE DRESS

This is the third of my wedding guest inspiration posts, here are the links to the first and second ones. The purpose of these post is to give you some ideas on how to mix and match your accessories and dresses to get more value and wear out of them.

??????????????????????
This orange dress is by Karen Millen and I bought it from the House of Fraser web site during one of their discount promotions but it is in the Karen Millen sale now. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Karen Millen dresses may cost a bit but the detailing is always beautiful and you can really see the quality. The detail of seams and pleating across the tummy is quite flattering and the straps mean you can wear a proper bra. Now to accessorize it:

First up, we have purple.

??????????????????????

I think purple and orange look great together and this is how I wanted to accessorise the dress for my nephew’s wedding but I couldn’t find a dressy pair of purple shoes that I liked.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????
This blazer is by cutie and I got it from iclothing.ie. I got the bag in Penneys/Primark ages ago. The shoes are Iron Fist and I’ve had them for a while.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

The necklace and earrings are from Pulse Accessories. In reality the colour is a deeper purple than it shows up in pictures and I took loads of pictures to try and capture the colour but this is the best I could get.

Second, we have the berry pink.

??????????????????????

I’ve seen a lot of bright pink and orange combos this summer but here I have a richer berry toned pink.

??????????????????????
The wrap and bag are Star by Julien McDonald at Debenhams. The shoes are Menbur, lets not forget how much I love Menbur shoes.

??????????????????????.

The necklace and earrings are from Boots.

Finally, Blue.

?????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????

I love blue and orange together and this is how I actually wore it to the wedding on Thursday.

This blue blazer is Cutie and you may have noticed by now that I have it in a few colours. I usually don’t like buying the same item in a few colours but this style blazer is so versatile. The cut and shape looks great with dresses or it can look smart casual with jeans.  That’s right the shoes are surprise, surprise, from Menbur. I borrowed this blue clutch from a friend and it is from Penneys, as you can see it is the same as my purple one.

???????????????????????????????

The necklace is from Carraig Donn and the earrings are from New Look.

Other colour suggestions I have for wearing with orange are teal green and navy? Can you think of any other colours?

WEDDING GUEST STYLE INSPIRATION: THE PURPLE DRESS

This is the second of my wedding guest inspiration posts, here is the link to the first one. The purpose of these posts is to give you some ideas on how to mix and match your accessories and dresses to get more value and wear out of them.

Purple Karen Millen Dress
This purple dress is from Karen Millen. I love the neckline of this dress, not quite a one shoulder but similar so it’s quite interesting. I also love the embroidery and the wrap over skirt detail. Karen Millen dresses may cost a bit but the detailing is always beautiful, you can really see the quality.

And now to accessorize it. First up, we have the berry pink. I prefer this richer berry toned pink myself, but a bright fuchsia pink would work perfectly as well.

??????????????????????

??????????????????????

The wrap and bag are Star by Julien McDonald at Debenhams. The shoes are Menbur and I have made no secret of my love for Menbur shoes. The colour of the shoes is a bit darker but they still work because of the distance between the shoes and everything else.

??????????????????????

These earrings and necklace (I don’t wear a necklace with this dress) are from Boots.

Second, is orange. I am loving orange accessories!

??????????????????????

???????????????????????????????
The shoes are Kurt Geiger, the wrap, fascinator, and bag are from Glitzi Bitz.

??????????????????????
The earrings and ring are amber and from eBay. The neckline of the dress does not need a necklace and I think one would just be too much but if you are wearing a dress with a different neckline then this necklace is a good option and it is from Gerards.

Once again bright aqua and lime green are two other colours that look great with purple. Have you any other suggestions?
