Planning an elopement? An intimate ceremony for two? Or, is it just that you revel in the opportunity to forgo tradition and sample something fresh and new? From masculine tailoring to thigh-high splits and low hemlines, here are four looks to surprise and delight.
Steer clear of white (too predictable) and instead opt for a cool pewter grey (satin is a great fabric choice for neutral hues) and add personality through accessory choices – single statement earrings were one of the biggest trends of AW16 and would look great here. See Mugler, Anthony Vaccarello and Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini for inspiration. Luma dress, €251 at Reformation
I love the boyish charm of this oversized suit – it’s both fresh and modern with a loose fit and high waistband accentuating the waist. Although a little daring, the beautifully feminine lace-trimmed bra compliments the masculine tailoring perfectly. Houghton Fall17
Keep things effortlessly cool in a monochrome mini. A ruffled collar hints to tradition without being saccharine. Twiggy mini dress, Isa Arfen, €876 at Moda Operandi
A jumpsuit is a style-savvy option that is both elegant and comfortable. But remember, all over lace can be tricky to pull off so keep the rest of your look clean and simple. Pull hair back for greater emphasis. This jumpsuit is from Whistles’ debut bridal collection and will be available to shop from February 2017.
