The infamous Wedding Invitation Season is upon us, but never fear! Survival is possible with a little help from Reiss.
The British label has been dressing wedding guests (and plenty others, besides) since 1971, and their experience shows. Through a select edit of pieces that are up to 50% off, we’re here to show you that mixing and matching can get you smoothly through a 2016 chock-a-block with ceremonies.
After all, cream-coloured linen cards dropping onto the doormat are par for the course at this time of year; what with Hen and Stag dos, gifts and hotel bookings, it’s no surprise that what to wear can take a back seat.
If you’re racking up Save The Dates like Easter egg calories, find inspiration in our capsule collection of design-led, thoroughly modern and sexy clothes that can be styled and re-styled for ultimate cost per RSVP potential.
Outfit one: Favour leather biker jacket (£210), Calin floral print dress (£47), Jackson suede block heels (£64.5). // Outfit two: Ocean double-breasted jacket (£90), Calma suit trousers (£48), Valerie suede pumps (£55). // Accessories: Chaucer leather clutch wallet (£38), Jean wide-brimmed hat (£23.5), Jessica suede belt (£20).
Mushroom, taupe and sugar-pink are fail safes for weddings; a tailored suit in ballet pink was made for this wide-brimmed sunhat. Wear with cut-out heels and a sleek clutch for understated cool or add a red lip and stilettos for something a little more bold. Equally as versatile is this splashy floral print dress with its suits-everyone A-line shape. Wear with bare arms now and a grey biker later.
Outfit one: tartan Miller suit (£148.00), white shirt (£32.00), Jeremy tassel loafers (£79.00). // Outfit two: Wilson speckle suit jacket (£98.00), Wilson speckle suit trousers (£44.00), navy Columbus shirt (£24.00). // Accessories: knitted tie (£27.00), pocket square (£12.00), Jose Panama hat (£22.5).
A knitted tie and pocket square in duck egg blue are exquisite against the crisp whiteness of a perfect cotton shirt. In turn, bright white looks as charming against a subtle tartan suit as it does against its more casual, speckled counterpart. Add a midnight blue shirt sans tie and lose the hat for a moodier, autumn/winter appropriate touch.
