With new drops from Whistles Wedding, Nasty Gal and the best high street takes on Dior’s covetable saddle bag, Star Chic’s fashion and beauty editor Michelle Martin has this week’s style news…
Yes to the dress
Modern brides-to-be looking for that perfect outfit will want to check out the new additions to Whistles Wedding collection for 2019, available in stores and online at www.whistles.com now.
Ariane lace wedding co-ord, €779; Annie wedding blazer, €389, and trousers, €299; Adelaide wedding dress, €899
There’s the new ‘Annie’ (€688) — a white tuxedo trouser suit which will appeal to fashion-forward brides, the ‘Ariane’ (€779), a delicate scalloped lace co-ord and the ‘Adelaide’ (€899), a one-shoulder dress with a Grecian silhouette and botanical embroidery.
If you’re looking for something non-traditional and contemporary for your big day — and don’t want to spend a fortune — any of these would be great choices.
Nasty Gals do it better
Blogger and influencer Louise Cooney has teamed up with online retail giant Nasty Gal this month for a hand-picked edit, available online now.
The Nasty Gal X Louise Cooney Edit features tailored blazer dresses (as seen on Louise above at the recent Nasty Gal Dublin launch), delicate lace bodies and on-the-money satin skirts and slip dresses.
Do You Be-sleeve satin one shoulder top, €34, and What Do You Jean high-waisted jeans, €34; Follow Suit blazer dress, €47
Cut in Line longline pinstripe blazer, €54, and trousers, €34; You’ve Got a Way With Me lace bodysuit, €30
Sleek Havoc bias cut satin skirt, €34; Jolt to a Spot dalmatian mini dress, €41
Prices start from €20 for a body or cami and go up to €74 for a show-stopping shiny blazer dress but everything on the site, including Louise’s edit, has 50% off right now so go grab a bargain.
If you’ve been lusting after Dior’s covetable Oblique saddle bag but don’t have a spare €2,300, never fear as the high street has been on the case, coming up with their own Dior-inspired pieces.
Let’s not call them “copycats”, they’re more of an homage…
