Hey dolls. How's your weekend going? Mine is going great. Right now I'm watching Chasing The Saturdays and scrolling through Tumblr. I feel very at peace today. I decided to create this How To: Weddings post because I've always wanted to give my own guide to dressing up so I've decided to start a new feature on the blog called How To. It's just like I'm a stylist. You've obviously seen the picture above so I'll try to explain my guide. xx
- Dresses: For me, I think if you're going to a wedding. You should wear something cheerful, I mean, it is a happy occasion.Always a colorful print or something romantic like lace. Even a beautiful Ankara dress would do. Nothing too short or sparkly, it just looks wrong for a wedding. Also, I think classic, elegant cuts are way way better for a wedding. What can I say? I love traditional things.
- Shirt and Skirt: If you don't want to wear a dress, then a really nice blouse with a pencil skirt would be nice. Once again, I think wedding outifts should be classy and model but still sexy , that's why I chose the pencil skirt. A pencil skirt should always cling to your body, if it doesn't, it's not a pencil skirt. The pussy bow blouse is so beautiful. I've been on the hunt for one for a while now. It just always looks so chic.
- Shoe:I don't know about other cultures but in Nigeria, people dance a lot at weddings. So you definitely do not want to wear super high heels to a wedding. Your heels shouldn't be to high but if you're short (like me) and want to look way taller, go for a pair of wedges. They're waaaay comfier.
- Accessories: On my wishlist, the number one thing I want it the Chanel quilted leather bag, that's why I included it. It's such a timeless piece and everyone that carries one automatically looks good for some reason. Jewelery for a wedding shouldn't have spikes `or skulls or all that goth stuff. It should be , again I'm using the word 'classy' like the pearl necklace in the collage. Pearls always look good. So do silver and gold.
So there you have it, my guide to dressing for weddings. Hope you liked it. It took some time to put together, trust me.
Note: The pieces weren't put to be worn together. They're just used as a guide.Thanks
