The dress has always been the star when it comes to going to a ceremony. Although it continues to appear in most events, it can easily be replaced by other outfits that express chic and elegance. In this article, we are going to revisit all formal wear likely to enhance your silhouette, regardless of your size. Before rushing to unveil the new trends, it is important to review the basic rules so as not to make a mistake.
Whether you're the mother of the bride, a guest, or godmother at a christening, pay attention to the length of your dress.Religious events require decency, which is why a midi length for your dress would be more suitable.Also forget sexy outfits, plunging necklines or clothes that reveal the shoulders and back! No need to show your thighs, since in addition to attracting all eyes to you, you risk destabilizing the ceremony and even the priest or pastor! Enough talking about the formalities, now on to the details!
For the baptism of her daughter or son, mothers like to dress in the same color as their child. And, often, the color of choice is white. To get out of the ordinary without straying from tradition, you can bet on white embellished with gold, or off-white. A chic dress for baptism with a V-neck, layered with a jacket, will be ideal for being chic without overdoing it.
Obviously, no white to show some respect to the families who organize the baptism or the communion. Remember that the little girl who is about to take her First Communion will be all in white. In this case, allow yourself all the colors! From the trapeze green skirt enhanced with a black top, to the coral skirt and the long flowing yellow skirt, lgo wild with materials, shapes or color combinations.
For big weddings, hats are a must. Normally, they are reserved for the relatives of the bride and groom (mothers, witnesses), unless the bride and groom make an express request. In this case, as a guest, study your ceremonial outfit by wearing a hat made of natural materials, for example: chic and elegant, without stealing the show from loved ones.
For your elegant outfits, take advantage of this accessory by choosing a mini model bag or a clutch. It can be mini or on the contrary, maxi! The 2 extremes so well made by the designer Jacquemus. For the color, it is important to keep color consistency by focusing on a different tone from that of the outfit. For clear or nude ceremonial outfits, don't hesitate to wear clutches or mini bags that give some pep. On the other hand, for colorful ceremonial outfits, stick to discreet color models. However, gold and silver will do the trick to stay stylish and trendy!
Get out the artillery! To make the ceremonial outfits more sophisticated, the jewelery (bracelets, earrings, necklaces, rings, etc.) must be chosen according to the shapes and volumes adapted to them. Obviously, it's an art to know how to harmonize them.We can only say that if you are in the spotlight, favor dapper jewelry (oversize, set with stones, in accumulation…) To give visibility to your yellow gold jewelry, pair it with a dark outfit. Costume jewelry is allowed to light up modest ceremonial outfits.
You've been looking forward to them and you're spoiled for choice! The pumps to accentuate the elegance, the heeled sandals to gain height and ventilate the feet. These two types of shoes will look great with your formal wear. Treat yourself, this is an opportunity to choose a pair that changes what you wear every day!
