So, you’re off to a wedding this summer – what are you going to wear? It’s a challenge as a guest because you want to look and feel amazing without (a) outshining the bride, (b) wearing something that 5 other guests have on and (c) spending a fortune on an outfit you wear once.
This is where independent boutiques come in and, in Edinburgh, you’ll find one that fits with your budget and style.
At Just G Boutique, we’ve currently got some great options that strike the perfect wedding balance! I’ve pulled together a few of my favourites for you here.
First up, is one of my must haves in a wardrobe – a maxi dress! It’s important that it’s the right length though – not too long nor too short.
This maxi is by Nancy Dee and is made in their usual style with unique, limited edition print. At £99 it’s an investment piece, but you’ll wear it time and again plus, it’s priced at less than many dresses on the high street!
I couldn’t decide which of these two vintage inspired Ruby Belle dresses to showcase so I decided to put them both in here.
The navy one is super simple and the back has some bow detail. I would team with a statement piece of jewellery or a hat. This is priced at £74.99.
The red and white dress has some stretch and a lovely sweetheart neckline. With a dress as impactful as this, simple accessories are required – I’ve teamed it with a small sparkly necklace and white wrap. The dress is £74.99 , the scarf £20 and necklace only £15.
Not feeling confident to wear a bright dress, then how about a black dress that you can wear to event after event or even to work?
This Fever dress has stretch to hug and comfort with a cross over neckline to flatter. The length is perfect & finishes at the knee. I’ve teamed it with this super soft Ruby Belle vibrant orange cardi and brushed gold metal necklace to make it more suited to a function and less “officey”. The dress is £74.99, cardigan £44.99 and necklace £15.
Dare to be different? I have the perfect Goldie London dress for you – bright and floral so super summery and looks “appropriate” from the front.
However, turn around and show-off a tanned back and waist with the surprising cut-outs. This dress would suit several of Goldie London’s several celebrity fans, including Pixie Lott, Fearne Cotton and Florence Welch. You’ll certainly feel like a celebrity with all eyes on you (second to the bridal party, of course!). This dress is a great value at £54!
Finally, prefer a trouser? These Nancy Dee wide leg palazzo pants are just amazing – the super soft fabric hangs perfectly and with a unique print, you’ll look elegant and comfortable!
I’ve kept this look simple with a plain black vest and statement necklace. A blazer and wedges will complete the look. The palazzo pants are £59, vest £28 and necklace £15.
All of these are available in store now and if you come along to the opening celebration event tomorrow evening (20th June between 6pm & 8pm), you may even be able to get some money off your perfect look!
Hope to see you gorgeous shoppers soon,
