Season Of Love
Natalie Portman just tied the knot to Benjamin Millepied over the weekend, opting for an August wedding as opposed to a popular summer wedding in June. Though the late days of summer are nearing, Natalie and Benjamin are proof that wedding season is still in swing. Although none of us were lucky enough to be invited to Natalie’s secret ceremony, many of you will have weddings to attend right until September, and will be wondering what to wear. Since summer wedding attire is all about lightweight fabrics, sunny colours and happy prints, late-summer weddings call for solids to add a bit more polish and sophistication. Plus, the sun may not be so scorching and you will be looking for a bit more structure and substance to your look.

Depending on the formality of the event and the venue, you may want to procure a tailored frock in a more subdued, darker shade since you will be able to wear it into fall for work or evening occasions. If you’re attending an outdoor, backyard or beach wedding, a floatier look will be preferred. For formal ceremonies or indoor receptions, this look is perfection. On trend with a peplum dress and bold neon accents, you won’t blend in but will be polished and appropriate. Just what every fashion forward guest will envy about you!
Take This Look
For the chic and trendy look here, start by being the ultimate sophisticate in a navy Asos pencil dress with peplum waist. Be anything but boring blue by adding touches of neon yellow in the High Fashion Handbags clutch- hard-case clutches are the it bag right now- and nude and yellow Enzo Angiolini pumps. This will allow you to evoke summer without looking too beachy. Finish the look with an on-trend printed blazer like this fierce Tibi jacket, and a bold statement necklace in coral.
