What is the etiquette? What does one wear? Is it dressy? Is it formal?
It’s such a common concern and I have one Rule ! Be comfortable
Generally for a garden party we pray for some sunny weather or at least a blue sky! Think effortless glam, Not too much bling, not too much skin, and a little Colour.
For me Hope & ivy is a fail safe collection for all shapes & sizes. Their collections cover the ladies who love a wrap dress which covers a multitude of shapes and sizes ! They love a sleeve which is perfect for our climate (and eliminates our souls destroying search for the “right” jacket !!)
And they also offer the backless boho style (which is a personal favourite for me well we are not all blessed with lovely curves !!)
Here are just a few styles from their stunning new collection.
The elegance beams out of this beautiful classic wrap-style maxi. The silhouette features a gorgeous flowing hem-line and tapered sleeve detailing. I love the pink and red print which is cool yet feminine.
