Worrying about what to wear to Derby Day is one thing, then there’s the busy preparation for wedding season before the crux of the summer plans, including the holiday hype. Do not panic, for this period of preparation is all about stepping back and letting the dress do the talking for you; statement summer dresses matched with bold accessories are memorable and mesmerising and are always appropriate for the formal summer event.
Whether you’re fleeing to the French Riviera with your glamorous mother-in-law followed by afternoon tea in a country hotel surrounded by gardens of vivid azaleas, or planning a trip away and out of the city to seek out other major fixtures, the dress is your oyster.
With the days of roses and sunshine to come, adopting carefree attire goes hand-in-hand with some of the most elegant pieces if paired practically. So team your Michael Cinco for COUTURiSSIMO Roxy Embellished Lace Gown with a khaki coat to ward off the gentle evening breeze. Formal is the word: opt for the Michael Cinco for COUTURiSSIMO Taylor Embroidered Skirt Dress for grown-up elegance. Likewise, injecting a splash of ivory into the final look is always a scene-stealing option no matter the occasion and whatever the weather has in store. After all, pleasure and practicality are twinned; just watch out for the mud (and possible drizzle).
...the preparation is all about stepping back and letting the dress do the talking for you.
