Here’s How to Be the Best Dressed Guest

Dresses aren’t for everyone, eg if you’re a different size on top from your bottom. A statement skirt can be answer to your prayers. Bonmarche’s beautiful navy pencil skirt with midi lace overskirt is absolutely stunning and only £28!

A jacket is great for covering upper arms if that’s an area of concern, and this lovely one from Bonmarche is only £35, so you can’t go wrong!  The dress (see video) with floral detail nips you in at the waist, it’s 100% cotton to keep you cool and it looks stunning.

What to Wear to Celebrate

The big day is nearly here – if you’re having a street party or gathering in front of the telly what about a royal tee shirt – maybe a Breton stripe or one with a bit of bling!

Get Meghan’s Look

Meghan Markle is the world’s new style icon and what she’s very good at is taking a classic and giving it the Meghan Markle twist. For example, take the white linen shirt, she loves it and it’s a great piece to have in your wardrobe. Works nicely with a denim short and a wide legged trouser in white with the shirt is brilliant during summer months.

She loves a statement skirt with a bit of pattern – that with a white shirt is elegance personified.
