Q I'm getting married this summer and I'm looking for some long neutral- toned dresses that would be suitable for my two bridesmaids. Have you any suggestions?'
A Coast has a beautiful long tulle maxi dress called the Mancini, for €285, in a taupe tone that has a wonderful late-'50s feel to it.
It comes with removable spaghetti straps so you have the option of wearing it as a strapless dress. And it is styled with a simple removable black ribbon belt, so that you can customise the belt to fit in more aptly with the rest of your bridal party's look.
This would look stunning worn with Faith for Debenhams' neutral shoes adorned with vintage-style embellishments.
For a budget footwear option, head to Penneys for fabulous nude patent high heels for €13, also available in black.
Spanish label Hoss Intropia has designed two neutral toned dresses, both retailing for €535.95. One is embellished with some tasteful bead work while the other is unadorned, with a billowing hemline, both of which would work perfectly as bridesmaids' dresses.
