What to Wear to a Winter Wedding

belle-bunty-london-fashion-blog-dune-eveningwear20161020_00

The world can be a strange place {let’s not get started about the political news this morning} As soon as the clocks turn and it looks like Winter is here the shops start drip feeding black into our wardrobes. A little black knitwear here, dark denim there, and right about now the sequins start. Light you’re self up like an Emo Christmas tree and you are party ready? Well no, not in our book. There are alternatives to black that are anything but basic, because who wants to rock up to their BFF’s wedding or work Christmas Do wearing boring ‘ol black #notus

There is of course a time and place for black and we appreciate it’s sartorial safety net but we think that when the party season rolls around you can do better. Dare to be different, try something new and opt for the more colourful versions. This we think is true for both clothes and accessories and Dune London look like they agree.

If you are looking for a statement shoe or bag this season then they’ve got ya back. We’ve styled 2 looks that would see you good at a Winter wedding or that special festive night out, all featuring Dune London‘s lovely accessories. 

LOOK 1
Look 1
features our friend ~ pink, and oh how we love love love clashing it with red. We think these 2 versions work well mismatching your nude, pinky peach shades with pops of tomato red like these lace up ghillie heels and structured clutch. Or a more muted take with these cute as can be scalloped edge courts and statement brooch detailed clutch. Velvet is *the* fabric of the season so embrace the soft stuff and try colour clashing.

Red & pink to make the girls wink.

LOOK 2

Look 2 shows how tone on tone can be your best friend. Super wearable these metallic shades of greys work as neutrals and offer a more friendly black alternative for those wishing to dip their toes into the rainbow pond of colour. Greys, silvers and blues are extremely flattering on the skin and we love these play on textures. If you are not so brave on the colour front, try clashing fabrics for a subtle twist: velvet, metallics, suede, patent, and lace all add dimensions to your look. A simple shape shoe such as these pewter patent heels and these dark, dark green courts with ankle strap really let the colour and fabric do the talking {and you know would look ace with basic boyfriend jeans too} Add a statement bag like this patchworked clutch or this jewel embellished micro bag and you’ve got a whole new level of wow.

With a little help from Dune London we think you can have fun this season with your event dressing, don’t fall back on the black failsafe. Say no to the Prince of Darkness and his noir-wearing ways. Say yes to the colourful dress and non-black accessories.
