Choosing A Wedding Outfit!

The sun is shining today as I type, yesterday was a snowy, blustery kind of a day!  The weather's acting rather strange of late but the morning sun shine reassures me that Spring is just around the corner!
With that in mind it's the perfect time for turning thoughts to the seasons coming weddings and what to wear!
When ever clients visit my studio looking for headwear, I encourage ladies to try on as many styles as possible to get to know what suits then and in turn style that aren't so complimentary!  There is a right hat for everyone and when you find it you should feel and look confidently wonderful in your chosen creation!

The same can be said for choosing your entire outfit and to help you on your way Phase Eight have some wonderful wedding outfits to choose from!  I find their website is easy to follow and what's more they are currently running a wonderful competition where you can style your own wedding outfit!

It's great fun, all you do is choose your desired wedding outfit to be in with a chance of winning a £250 voucher!

Here is my chosen outfit.

And the reason I have chosen this particular look?

I simply love the bold colour combinations and attractive print in this dress; there are so many accent colours that could be picked out for your accessories.  I have opted for the vivid, fresh green tones that lift the over all look and black to balance and compliment the stronger black at the bottom of the dress!  This outfit would be the perfect way to brighten the day come rain or shine!


To have you go at playing stylist and for all things 'Hattie' visit!

Happy outfit hunting!
