Each year as things start to head up, I am on the hunt for wearable summer dresses. I’m looking for a dress that you can wear anytime and anywhere – just throw it on and run out the door. Sometimes you find that outfit that just seems right for every occasion. As season change, there’s always those few pieces that you constantly find yourself reaching for. So far this summer, my white wrap dress from Boohoo has been that piece – it has quickly become one of my most worn dresses.
Pantone released its colour of the year for 2018, and it’s . . . Ultra Violet! The news shouldn’t come as a complete surprise if you’ve been following the runway trends from Fashion Week. We saw a variety of purple hues from designers, most notably lavender touches for Spring/Summer 2018, and it won’t be long before every fashion girl finds a way to incorporate the colour into her clothing.
As the years have passed weddings have become more and more relaxed with some of the ideas put forward by the bride and groom have become more obscure. Ceremonies can be held virtually anywhere, bridesmaids are often given the freedom to select their own gowns and some couples are choosing to get rid of the standard ceremony in place of something a little more out there.
What we wear can do wonders for your confidence levels. We often dress to look good to other people but you’ve got to love yourself in those clothes before that confidence can be expressed.
