When you’re getting ready for the wedding of the year, be it your best friend’s or that of a family member, the outfit is always the most exciting and agonising part of preparation.

For any woman, finding the stylish solution to formalwear is a tricky one but it doesn’t mean you can’t be fashion forward at the same time. This outfit has splashes of retro to give it some edge, while still providing a pretty outfit fit for any wedding. Find out more over the jump.


The prom dress, basis for the whole outfit, is a great youthful style that can be worn whatever your age or body shape. With a waist belt to cinch you in, it isn’t one to be left just for the models.

I’ve teamed the dress with some bright red accessories with retro touches, my favourite being the cute 40s-style hat from Chapeau Claudette – who ever said hats at weddings were a cliché? Finished off with some t-bars, with a mid heel for dancing the night away, this is a great outfit that’s daring and still doesn’t cost a packet.

Product Details:
Belted Prom Dress, £35
Wool Emi Hat from Chapeau Claudette, £25
Patent T-bar shoes, £25
Ruched Bow bag, £12
