Wedding season is in full force and it's the perfect opportunity for us to get glam! It's no longer a faux pas to arrive at a wedding dressed in black (just please don't wear white unless the couple requests it). The days where this darker shade represented bad luck are over, and in my opinion a LBD (or something like it) is a great choice when it comes to looking smart and feeling fabulous.
So having said that, I hope the following curations inspire you to try out a darker number should you have any forthcoming nuptials to attend.
THE RAE DRESS
Modest at the front, party at the back. The Rae Dress is ideal if you love understated elegance combined with a little bit of fun. Strappy sandals and dainty diamanté hoops complete this look.

Dani Hoops, R220 - Mañana
Leah Petite Heel, R1099 - Sweet Peas
THE COREY TIE JUMPSUIT
For the fashion forward female. The Corey is both comfortable and classy. A piece you can dress up or down dependant on the dress code, and one that would look great on just about anyone. Let your accessories do the talking!
The Corey Tie Jumpsuit, R750 - Adele Catherine
The Verde Bag, R1800 - Huntress
Abby Dangles, R650 - Rare Collective
THE COCO MIDI DRESS
More than ever before, people are opting for a more casual and laid back wedding celebration. The Coco has a boho feel, perfect for this type of soirée. This flowy number guarantees a flattering fit! I love this as an option for the pregnant mamas. An easy to wear fit for a baby belly that can be worn once baba arrives too!
The Coco Midi Dress, R1099 - Coco & Salt
Stephie Hoops, R200 - Mañana
Zoe Black Leather Bag, R749 - Trinity
THE TYLA TWIST DRESS
The Tyla is a classic wedding guest dress with the perfect balance between modesty and sass. It's refined, contemporary and feminine. Stand out by pairing it with accessories that contrast for a mono feel.
The Tyla Twist Dress, R795 - Ella Sol
Zoe Nude Leather Bag, R799 - Trinity
Cherie Petite Heel, R1100 - Sweet Peas
THE EVE DRESS
Turn heads in the sophisticated and sexy Eve Dress. This form-fitting number looks best with simple, yet elegant jewels. The Eve Dress comes with a warning, however - you might take attention away from the bride!

Amber Bracelet, R1500 - Christy Anne Jewellery
Loop Studs, R580 - Christy Anne Jewellery
THE VERGARA WRAP SKIRT
Something a little different - the Vergara Skirt is a versatile choice in that you can pair it with different tops to create multiple ensembles. To keep things wedding chic in a Little Black Number, we suggest pairing this skirt with the Black Scrunch top from Huntress. Big boho earrings in the form of the Tulip Drops will add some bold beauty to this look. The best part is that both the Vergara skirt and the Scrunch Top and be paired with your staple wardrobe for day-to-day wear.
