What To Wear For Your Engagement Party?

March 27th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

My very good friend and recently engaged lady Charlotte has been throwing a few blog topic demands requests my way of late, and since I’m officially on “team bridesmaid” I thought that I had better take heed.

.

Charlotte and Matt are hosting an engagement party shortly, and Char has been looking for some outfit inspiration.  Knowing that I spend half my time researching wedding pretty and the other half, ahem, online shopping (not really hubby – no overdrafts have been harmed in the writing of this post) she felt that I was the gal for the job.

.

So, what would you wear to your engagement party?  You want to look special, perhaps with a nod to bridal styling, but you don’t want to be too bridal – it’s too early for that and it’s just not cool.  Plus you’ll feel an idiot when all your friends turn up looking hot.  My advice?  Keep it on trend, pretty, a little flirty and a bit special.

.

Here are some of my picks from around the web and the great British high street.  I have to say it’s been a joy – there is SO MUCH gorgeous stuff out there, with particularly strong offerings from Reiss and Oasis.

.

Thank me later by picking a nice frock for me to rock on your big day Char!  This one is for you.  And the rest of you too!
