Spring is totally upon us and with it comes wedding season – a time of celebration, yes, but also a sartorial minefield like no other. Enter L.K.Bennett and their spring collection, packed with clever solutions to see us through every occasion, reception, garden party and service in immaculate style.
Their gorgeous new Gardo fabric (an abstract floral print on a textured silk mix jacquard) is worked into three key pieces for SS15 – the fit ‘n flare dress, the cropped jacket and the full skater skirt. Wear as a full striking look or mix and match the pieces with other separates in L.K.Bennett’s range to make them work even harder. Got six weddings in a row? This is the trick to changing up your look again and again without spending half your time (and money) in the shops.
Don’t want to save these pieces just for special occasions? Layer a sharp, classic blazer (may we suggest the Pedro) over that ultimate summer dress to make it completely office appropriate, or dress down the full skirt with a plain white tee and sandals for lunch with friends.
‘L.K.Bennett’s Gardo print is an occasionwear classic,’ says Marie Claire Runway’s Junior Editor Caroline Leaper. ‘Invest in quality over quantity when it comes to wedding season and forget the myth that you can only wear that special piece once – it’s all in how you style it.’
