How to Dress for a Civil Ceremony. Styling choices and tips from our monthly Fashion Friday guest blogger and stylist- Rachelle Guiry.

This fuschia coat dress is perfect for Winter Civil Ceremonies, your entire outfit is ready to wear, with only accessories left to find. The 80’s resurgence is back with this is contemporary version of all over colour. Not that we wouldn’t be happy to see you rocking shoulder pads “Madonna style”.

What was colour-blocking last year is now all-over colour. So shop for a style that you feel fits your personality. I opted for a Ted Baker 50’s silouette dress, plenty of personality in a stunning shade. Fuschia is a stunning shade on Irish fair skinned complexions – green eyes and pale skin- adds an exquisite vibrancy to the green eyed ladies. Letting the dress do all the talking I opted for a dainty fascinator worn to one one side.

With the huge obsession for metallic in animal textures I opted for a rectangular clutch from Carvela. The reason rectangular is a great size for phone, all important lippie and one or two more essentials. Add a high shine metallic heel for contrast.

This cherry red was the colour of choice at the last race meeting, rich lush cherry shades were the order of the occasion. With the winner Louise Allen wearing a red Peter Piletto ensemble with red pillbox hat complete with red cherries from Carol Kennelly.

This dress is a day shift style complete with sleeves for your Winter Wedding Day or Ceremony. The mini detail pleats on either side add contemporary sophistication to the dress. This all over colour is a fantastic option for ladies of any age. Worn with a red & fushica hat,  can be switched for a smaller option for a low key affair. With flat envelope bag from Rachelle Guiry Designs. This is a quirky polka dot version in fushica & maroon, picking up your details and mixing and matching.
