I'm back. Sorry for my absence, I don't really have any excuse or explanation I've just been lacking in idea's and my outfit's have been nothing y'all haven't seen before! I've a little time now before I go off to the Ooh LaLa Blog Awards tonight, which I'm so excited for! Recently I've gotten a few emails from readers wanting to know what to wear for a wedding. Being Plus Size and finding dressy outfits is a little bit more difficult then buying casual clothes. Although it's more difficult, it's definitely not impossible! I've put together a few idea's for you. I'm going to a Family Wedding next week, and I still haven't decided on my outfit, so I hope this gives me (and you!)a little bit of inspiration ;) All the dress I've chosen are from Asos Curve.
This Asos Curve dress is absolutely beautiful. It's the perfect dress for a Summer wedding. It's feminine and elegant, without loosing the fun element. The sequins are unique, and really make the dress a winner in my books. If I were to wear this, I'd focus on the Orange, and opt for an Orange headpiece. I've chosen a floral crown, as unless you're lucky and find a cheap headpiece you're going to have to pay a bit of money. In my experience colourful Headpieces tend to be quite expensive. I wouldn't go too overboard with the orange though, as looking too "matchy matchy" is outdated, and can look like you've tried to hard. I'd pair this dress with nude shoes, and silver or neutral bag. As far as makeup is concerned I'd keep it simple with a nice subtle brown smoky eye, and a nude lipgloss. With a dress that pretty, you'd ruin it with a face full of heavy makeup.
Another Dress from Asos Curve. Asos Curve is definitely the place to go for looking for inexpensive Plus Size dresses for a special occasion. They have everything from Maxi's to Mini's and you're bound to find something you like. I decided to add a headpiece to this outfit, as the dress can be dressed down, so I wanted to make it look wedding appropriate. Again with not going to "Matchy Matchy" a nude shoe and clutch would tone down the vibrant headpiece and make the outfit more glamorous and not tacky! Minimal silver jewellery looks sophisticated and small stacked rings are bang on trend right now. It's important when dressing for a wedding, not to loose your individual style. Simple touches like these are wedding appropriate but you don't feel like a completely different person!
This outfit, could be worn for either a Summer Wedding or a Winter one. For a Summer Wedding I'd go with a bare leg, and for a Winter one, I'd just add black opaque tights. It's a really classy and elegant dress and to add an extra touch of elegance, add dark red lips and dark red nails. The dress is conservative, but with the lace overlay it's stylish. The type of dress could be worn for a number of different occasions, so it would definitely be an investment buy! In order to dress it up for a Wedding I've added a black headpiece to tie in everything together. A simple plain black clutch with embellishments will make the outfit look more expensive, as a plain black satin clutch would cheapen the whole look, in my opinion! A Simply necklace and maybe a ring is all you'd need to rock this look.
