Stylewatch: Nuptial Nihilism
It's wedding season, so here are some rules to survive the wedding fatigue. Attending weddings has become more of a political minefield than planning them.
Invites disqualifying certain shops to prevent overlap with the bridal party are de rigueur, and it is pretty much understood that, as a guest, you may only operate at 60pc attractiveness. Any more than this, and you will be perceived as attempting to overshadow the bride.
With this in mind, rule #1 is no looking nice, keep hair and make-up minimal.
Rule #2, nothing experimental in the style stakes, keep the dress perfunctory and preferably unflattering; and rule #3, nude pumps are mandatory wedding footwear, see Roz Purcell.
NB: Enacting a four-Prosecco minimum should pass the time until there's cake.
