I was just wondering what to wear to a wedding I am going to in December, which is just before Christmas.
I am about 5’8 and don`t really want to wear heels… I`m around a size 10-12, smaller on top with slightly larger hips and slightly broad shoulders.
I have brown hair, chestnut to hazel and it`s fairly long and straight. I want a nice dress that makes me look my best but I have no idea where to even start looking. Also, I`m a bit worried that it may be freezing so please could you also give me some advice on jackets/cardigans etc. that may go with the dress.
I have not got much of a budget so please make sure the outfit is not too expensive.
Hi… you didn’t mention your name …
I would like to recommend you check out these dresses from Long Tall Sally as all their clothes are proportioned to flatter the taller woman. They pay careful attention to all body measurements – from neck to waist, shoulders and sleeves, trouser rises and the all important inside leg!
Their new collection of party wear is perfect for every Christmas Occasion, including a Winter wedding!
Seek out a gold or cream pashmina for the easiest way to cover-up if it`s cold. As a good neutral this will accommodate your more casual outfits and complement the rest of your wardrobe.
Hope you like!
