Wedding Tailoring

As wedding season is now in full flow, the one question that fills us with dread is usually our first thought; what on earth do I wear to a wedding? Whether it’s your only wedding this year or simply another one to add to the list, there is so much more on the high-street now than just the classic ‘dress, clutch bag and a fascinator’ look. It’s time to say hello to tailoring…

Suits and separates have dominated the high street recently and there’s no reason why you can’t work this trend for wedding season. We’ve rounded up our pick of the best tailoring that you can wear to any wedding and you can Click & Collect them at your nearest CollectPlus point at a convenient time for you.

Fine Stripe Suit Blazer £59.99 at Mango

This look sees our favourite spring trends merged into one: pastels and tailoring. We couldn’t think of a better combination! This pale blue shade is such a summery colour and will look great with nude sandals for that perfect wedding look. When the wedding is over, style it down with some white trainers for a more casual vibe.
