Here we are in the midst of wedding season, but finding a suitable outfit is as difficult as ever. Too short looks tacky, but go too long and you risk feeling frumpy. As for colour, call me old fashioned but black is a no for weddings - thus ruling out a trusty LBD. And as for white - do you want the bride to hate you?! In my opinion blue is the way forward...
You only have to look at pictures of Tara Palmer-Tomkinson at the royal wedding to see that cobalt blue is a real show-stopper. Yes the style is rather outlandish, but the colour is glorious. The shade is bright enough to make a statement, yet dark enough to remain dignified - and slimming! Have I convinced you yet?
If not, maybe this selection of dresses from Topshop will sway you...
