I have a few weddings/summer parties coming up and it’s proving a bit of a conundrum. One is in the south of France, middle of summer, boiling hot. The other wedding party is a BBQ with a very relaxed dress code. The garden party is… garden party attire, whatever that means. I don’t want to buy dresses for every different occasion, so the trick is to find pieces you can wear for all events, and can still wear for other occasions. This lovely Reiss embroidered dress ticks all my boxes…
1: Embroidered and mesh “Peacock” Dress in Vermillion, £195, from Reiss. If I had the nerve, the cream option would be the one, but it’s too close to white to be able to wear to a wedding, so probably a faux pas. Lady in red it is.
2: Embroidered and mesh “Peacock” Dress in Cream, £195, from Reiss. See above.
3. Weekend by Max Mara set of 4 bangles, £48, from Matches Shockingly cheap, a little colour pop and can be worn separately or stacked. Super.
4: Victoria Beckham Acetate Cat Eye sunglasses, £295, from Net-A-Porter Big sunnies, a must.
5: Givenchy leopard print and leather clutch, £1059, from Farfetch.com
6. Williams Green Stripe Espadrille Wedges, £65, from Topshop Très Prada, très chic, très cheap.
7. Eugenia Kim “Claudia” Feathered silk-satin headband, £107, from Net-a-Porter I’m not a hat or visor fan, but a nice headband will do the trick just fine.
8. Dominic Jones Knuckleduster 23-karat gold-plated ring, £121.50 (was £270), from The Outnet.
Have been obsessed with these Dominic Jones rings for ages. It’s cool, rock ‘n roll, fun. The only issue is choosing which colour. Gold, White Gold or Rose Gold? Or… all?
