The most important thing when creating a ceremony outfit is to be consistent with the event. Start thinking about shades and patterns in order to be elegant without stealing the spotlight from the people for whom the celebration is taking place. If the invitation mentions a color code, take it into account to guide your choices. Opting for plain and soft colors will allow you to wear your pieces on other occasions, and thus have a more responsible approach.

Then comes the moment to choose the pieces for your outfit. Dress, skirt, jumpsuit, suit? The most important thing is to feel comfortable in your ceremony outfit. Let’s say you don’t like showing your legs, in this case you can wear a chic 7/8 pantsuit with a coordinated jacket, to play with an elegant total look that remains feminine, even without revealing your legs. Another solution, to keep a airy feel, is to opt for a midi dress!
