Wedding Guest Outfits Made Easy…

With the wedding season just around the corner, we thought you might like a little outfit inspiration. Here at Caramel, we have lots of lovely dresses, cardis and clutch bags and we have put together a collection of our favourite occasion outfits to tempt you with…

 

 

 

 

This pretty shift dress from Great Plains Clothing features one of the season’s top new trends – Bold Florals. The colourful fitted cardigan is a beautiful sunflower yellow that perfectly matches some of the flowers on the dress. If you wanted to tone down the colour on this look, we also have a navy version of this cardigan. To complete your outfit, simply add heels and a clutch bag – this oversized navy purse from Ted Baker is ideal.

This fabulous multicoloured dress from Joules Clothing also follows the floral theme.  It looks great teamed with the matching Annie Cardigan, also by Joules.

Finish your look with simple silver jewellery and some peep toe shoes.

Joules’ Marilyn Dress would also be a great option for a special occasion and, as with our previous choices, it has the versatility to be worn more casually too. For a wedding, it looks great teamed with this vibrant pink necklace and a pair of heels. Alternatively, it could be worn as a summer dress with pumps or sandals.

As always, we have some rather special dresses from Ted Baker Clothing

This stunning floral print dress is full of romantic charm. It is a fitted style with a beautiful cascading panel at the front. We like it worn simply with nude tights and heels. Add a colourful clutch bag to complete your look.


Ted Baker’s Deavon Dress continues the romantic theme with its pale pastels and multicoloured floral print. This dress is a classic fitted shift with a sweet turned back collar, adding a contemporary twist. It looks great teamed with pastel coloured accessories and separates. All you need to complete your look is a plain fitted jacket or cardigan and some heels.

If you are looking for something with a touch of elegance, then the Bai maxi dress from Ted Baker is perfect.

The long pleated skirt and lace detailing create timeless feminine style. The Bai Dress is also reversible, so you get 2 different styles for your money – one with a sophisticated high neckline and the other with a low v-neck detailed with lace and domed gun metal buttons.

 

 

Team this beautiful dress with a simple clutch bag and heels, keeping to the pastel theme – another of this season’s top trends.

Lovely Lace…

Here at Caramel, we have fallen in love with lace. Not only is it one of the season’s top trends, it is also incredibly feminine – perfect for those special occasions. Seen on the Spring/Summer 2014 catwalk, the look can be worn head-to-toe or more subtly as a detail on a top or skirt.

There are a range of colours to choose from, including classic navy or cream. Alternatively, pastel shades are particularly on trend, especially coral tones. 

This lovely floral lace dress from Great Plains Clothing is a beautiful shade of coral pink. This look is full of girlish charm and is perfect wedding attire. We like it teamed with a simple plain cardi or jacket and some strappy sandals. This dress is also available in navy for a bold, yet classic, alternative.

Continuing on the pastel theme, we have even more beautiful dresses to inspire you.

This stunning mint green maxi dress from Ted Baker Clothing has a fabulous pleated skirt with a pretty lace bodice and grosgrain ribbon waistband. This dress is also reversible so you can choose between an elegant  high neckline or a low v-neck with gun metal button detailing. Simply team this one with a plain clutch bag and shrug.

As well as these gorgeous lace dresses, we also have some great lace separates that are ideal for teaming with plain denim…

The stripy Great Plains top and the navy Seasalt Cornwall top are both ideal for adding just a hint of lace to your everyday wear. The cream Joules top is a bit more of a statement piece and is ideal for smartening up a pair of jeans or teaming with a plain skirt.

This striking dress from Great Plains Clothing mixes 3 of the season’s top trends – lace, statement prints and monochrome. Here, lace takes the form of a bold black and cream print. This dress is perfect for dressing up or down. Wear it casually with flats and a cardi. Alternatively, team it with a clutch and heels for any special occasion, keeping your accessories to the monochrome theme for maximum impact.

For more inspiration on the lace trend, take a look at the Caramel Clothing Website.

A Little Leather

This season leather is a really strong look on the high street, inspired partly by emerging top to toe leather trends on the autumn/winter 2013 catwalks. While full on leather outfits may work for some, however, the look is not exactly practical for everyday wear. At Caramel, we want to show you how to wear this trend in a more understated way. We suggest just accenting you look with a little leather (or leatherette). Follow the example of Calvin Klein and add some leather trimmed items to your wardrobe.

For a subtle approach, we think these fab casual items are just perfect for adding that hint of leather to your everyday wear…

The Great Plains leggings have discreet faux leather panels down each side, making them the perfect new season update. Wear them with a simple block colour tunic for a modern, pulled together style. The fluffy grey jumper from Fransa has a contrasting leather effect pocket detail, ideal for introducing the trend to your casual wear. Team it simply with jeans or cords. The black leatherette jumper from Fransa is a little more daring. It looks great worn with subtle printed trousers and some slouchy ankle boots, for a look that is modern and edgy.

The leather trend also works really well with occasion wear, as long as it is not too overpowering. This leather trim dress from Ted Baker is absolutely to die for.

The shoulders feature real leather accents that work beautifully with the modern, angular shape of this dress. Minimal accessories work best to keep the look clean, simple and elegant. Black heels and a gold wrist cuff are all that is needed.

fransa-clothing-dress-6000-89-raw-melangeFor a more casual approach, try this grey jersey dress from Fransa, featuring a black leather effect panel down the front and over the shoulders. The silver stud detailing at the neckline works perfectly with the leather look. Style this dress with black opaque tights and knee-high boots. Finish your look with kohl eyeliner and a messy up do for a modern, wearable outfit.

If you are looking for a new take on a jacket or cover-up this season, then these offerings from Ted Baker and Sandwich are ideal.

sandwich-clothing-blazer-1351260994-black-14422 ted-baker-clothing-gaeton-contrast-leather-trimmed-wrap-gk21-blackThey both feature genuine leather trim mixed with a contrasting fabric. Wear them with floaty, floral dresses to create an edgy, yet feminine, look that is bang on trend.

So why not try adding a touch of leather to your new season wardrobe?  And remember: subtlety is the key.

Gliding Effortlessly Into Autumn…

Here at Caramel, we are busy getting our new season collection in the shops and online. It’s wonderful to see the fresh colours and prints we will be wearing in the coming months. But if you haven’t quite finished with the summer yet, then we have some gorgeous transitional pieces that are perfect for this time of year. Kaftans, tunics and short dresses are great examples of items that can be worn through summer into autumn. While it’s still hot, they look fab with leggings and pumps. When it gets a little cooler, however, they are perfect teamed with boots and tights or skinny jeans. Just layer with a plain long-sleeved tee to complete the look and add some warmth.
