Don’t deviate too far from your own style. Fun though it would be to experiment, if you’re not a suit girl, don’t try to be for this important occasion. Stick to what makes you feel most comfortable.
Do look to the high street. From simple slips to white tailoring, you don’t have to allocate huge money to this look – it’s perfectly possible to look good on a budget.
Don’t wait to buy something you love. You can always send it back if it’s not right, but don’t risk it selling out if you think it could work.
Do buy something you’ll wear again. Special though the civil event may be, it’s only one day of your life – whether it’s a jumpsuit or a mini dress, try to invest in something you know you can wear more than once.
Don’t feel you have to stick to any rules. If you don’t love yourself in white, go for blue – if you want to wear denim shorts and a blazer then do it. It’s your day, your way.
A classic choice, there are endless pretty white midi options to choose from. Just avoid cotton or linen, and opt for more formal or occasion-style fabrics like silk or lace to help you feel event-ready.
