Style watch: My brother's getting married -- help!
Published 10/09/2010 | 05:00
My brother is getting married this November and I am looking for a smart winter outfit that will be warm but stylish.
I would rather wear designer than high street and would prefer a toned down, sophisticated look.
A The key to looking stylish is a beautiful tailored coat. Choose a style with structure so you can still see your figure but in wool to ensure you remain cosy.
Aquascutum has a luxurious winter-white belted coat with skirted detail which would be perfect with a chic little black dress such as Fenn Wright & Maison's bugle beaded neckline dress or Dina Bar-El's fitted number. Smart leather gloves from glovesbypaularowan.com would add polish, and a simple fascinator would add a touch of glamour.
Try Spanish label Hoss Intropia's black edge-to-edge coat with frill detail. This is the perfect foil for Paddy Campbell's navy lace dress.
A trilby can be an excellent alternative to an elaborate hat, as it looks chic and appropriate without looking gaudy. Try this French navy trilby by Irish company Shevlin.
