Style Advice

Weddings can be one of the most enchanting and beautiful events to dress for. However, in saying that, if you are unsure of what to wear such an event can also fill you with dread.

Below is an email I received from a lovely reader, Stella, who had this exact dilemma…

Dear Cara,

I have a wedding to attend in a couple of weeks and I have no clue what to wear! It will be a Spring city wedding and I have no dress code to work with. Please help! I need a little inspiration.

Love Stella x

Dear Stella,

Spring is the most popular wedding season. So channel your inner ‘Girl Scout’ and start planning your wedding season outfits early.

The best advice I can give is – don’t leave it until the day of the event to select your outfit {trust me I have been there and definitely done that!}. Don’t forget to plan your heels, handbag and accessories – being prepared in all areas is key to a lovely wedding day {even if it isn’t yours}.

The Darling Bud Of Wedding Season

Feminine and exquisitely pretty, florals are always an exceptional choice for Weddings. Brilliant blooms add a whimsical romance and sweet aesthetic to simple silhouettes and charming accessories. For classic floral dressing, a little cocktail dress in a pretty print is perfect with heels. Be inspired by Erdem’s delightful dedication to elegant florals…

Lovely Lace

The little lace dress has become style staple. Fresh, refined and sweet – the lace dress is all about polished beauty. A vividly coloured little lace dress is a glamorous wedding look… just add heels and go. Take colour note from this delectable Valentino red lace dress…

Bright Eyes {And Dresses}

Bright Spring shades are feminine, fun and positively glowing. From tangerine dreams to wonderful watermelon; zesty tones are the perfect way to welcome Spring colour into your wardrobe. Lanvin’s vivid yellow cocktail dress is perfect to colour note to capture attention…

Stella I am sure you will look gorgeous on the day! I cannot wait to hear what you choose.

Love Cara xx

p.s. if anyone has any style questions or are unsure of what to wear, please feel free to email me or post them on the Uptown Twirl Facebook page…. I cannot wait to be of help!

An Explosion Of Colour

“I love to play with colour for Spring.”  – Frida Giannini.

Unabashed colour is undeniably enticingly. Exuberant, passionate and joyously enchanting – an explosion of concentrated colour can put a spring in your step.

Gucci’s Jet Setting Colour Palette

At the recent Gucci Spring / Summer 2013 collection, bold colour captured the imagination combined powerfully with chic silhouettes for maximum impact. From bright pink to coral, cobalt blue, citrus yellow and rich turquoise – it was a collection that screamed of maximalist Italian glamour.

Igniting the imagination and evoking a jet setting lifestyle – the colour intensity lifted the spirits to create a collection the designer herself labelled “aristographic”. The late 60’s / 70’s silhouettes heighted the good mood; while subtle attention to detail saw ruffles line sleeves and necklines – arching around the body for added drama.

Colour Tip

Embrace vivid colour in a little cocktail dress. From bewitching cobalt blue to provocative red- it’s a dashing alternative to the classic little black dress…

Will you embrace a high-voltage colour palette? xx
