Choosing a textural uplift on a timeless silhouette is a beautiful way of elevating any evening silhouette and really standing out from the crowd. Turn to eye-catching floral motifs in three dimensional textures appliqued across a midi dress style with a strapless neckline or a midi style accentuated with romantic floating shoulders for a stunning choice that you can style for any event on your calendar. Keep your accoutrements pared-back to avoid overwhelming the statement yet feminine feel of your textural floral dress. This choice works just as well with neutrals as it does with pop tones, so choose a colour that harmonises with your features to feel your most beautiful from the ceremony to the dance floor.
The two-piece set
A two-piece set is a genius choice when it comes to getting maximum wearability out of your next wardrobe addition. Choose a ruched torso-skimming crop top with a V-neckline to blend seamlessly with a matching tiered maxi skirt for a striking look that takes all the work out of styling yourself for the big day. Wear with sleek pointed pumps and a neutral clutch bag for an effortlessly elegant yet unique outfit that you can also mix and match with the rest of your wardrobe. Swap out the skirt for dress pants or a cropped mini, or simply add a shawl or an oversized knit to contrast with your maxi for clever dressing that works, whatever the weather.
All in the shoulders
Accentuated shoulders bring an eye-catching hit of volume to your neckline for a feminine look that is sure to stand out from the crowd. Look to intricately ruched voluminous shoulders, sweeping tie-up shoulder ribbons or sheer, crystal strewn tulle for a touch of glamour that won’t overpower your overall silhouette. Keep the rest of your cut timeless with a fit-to-form bodice and a flattering A-line midi or maxi skirt in a sweeping shape to strike a beautiful and proportional balance that looks stunning on all silhouettes.

An asymmetrical neckline is the perfect choice for making a little more of a statement with your next wedding guest look. Choose a bodycon style with a dynamic diagonal neckline, one shoulder or placed side cut outs for a contemporary look that is both beautiful and unique. Keep to simple accessories and pulled-back hair to let the striking feel of your dress really shine.
