City Wedding

A sophisticated city wedding is a great opportunity to try something different from the reliable yet ubiquitous dress. Instead, opt for separates and add fashion-forward accessories for a slick finish. Chandelier earrings and two-strap shoes are very of-the-moment and are great way to add a touch of modern glamour to your look.

Church Wedding

If the venue is a church followed by an old country house, a touch of tradition and elegance is needed. Keep shapes simple and add flourishes with classic yet sophisticated accessories. A fascinator is not a must, but if it’s good enough for Kate Middleton…

Beach Wedding

If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off for the nuptials of a loved one, you must make comfort your primary concern. Lightweight fabrics, flat shoes and stay put make-up are all key to lasting the day so a maxi dress is a great option to ensure you look glamorous yet remain cool. Delicate gold jewellery and semi-precious stones make elegant finishing touches.

Kate O'Brien

Hi I'm Kate, in a previous life I was Womenswear Editor but these days you are more likely to find me pouring over a planning calendar than the latest copy of Elle in my role as Online Content Producer. A Northern tourist in London, some of my favourite things in life include red wine, chutney (accompanied by cheese), sequins, grey cashmere and Matt Damon. I am known in the HoF office for owning far too many coats for one person, laughing too loud, and drinking full fat Coke only when hungover. My life's ambition is a simple one; to own a Puggle.
