FAVE 5: Belles And Blooms | Clozette


Women are just like flowers. They have varying forms, colours and sizes — all of which are beautiful. Both make their surroundings bright and alive. Flowers have their petals; women have their personality. So combine them both and you get an amazing masterpiece, like beauty caught in a perfect standstill. Just check out these lovely snaps of belles and blooms from the Community to see what we mean.

Here are the things we caught in our radar.

Even though most of us won't be able to attend a royal wedding in our lifetime, we can always dress up as though we're going to one. Who says fancy hats and gorgeous suits are reserved for royal guests only? If you're about to attend a wedding, surprise everyone by showing up in an elegant and chic ensemble inspired by Princess Eugenie of York's best-dressed wedding guests. Here are some outfits you should consider wearing to your next nuptials appearance.  


Tuxedo + cigarette pants



Most of the time, if you break a royal protocol, you'll be endlessly criticised on social media. But it seems like we can only give praises and compliments for Cara Delevingne's super chic outfit at Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's royal wedding. She caused quite a buzz when she showed up in an Emporio Armani tuxedo and cigarette pants ensemble complete with a matching CHANEL top hat. A definite fashion must-try!


Pretty in millennial pink



The appeal of millennial pink isn't limited to casual wear, it's also a surprisingly very wearable hue on formal occasions as evidenced by Holly Valance's Ralph & Russo all-pink ensemble at the royal wedding. Take note of the dainty ribbon detail on the gloves and elegant adornments at the waist. It's a look we'd want to recreate.


Prim and proper in a crimson dress



If you wanna go for that prim and proper look, take it from Demi Moore and go for a perfectly tailored midi dress that will complement your figure. Moore loves her Stella McCartney number so much that she decided to join Instagram to share all about it on social media. When wearing a dark-hued monochromatic ensemble, make sure that you choose a shade that will bring out the radiance in your skin tone. It differs from person to person but usually emerald and crimson colours are foolproof choices.


Go bold but classy



It's a given that you shouldn't upstage the bride but it doesn't mean that you can't wear a bold, eye-catching outfit. The key is making sure that the cut and design of the dress remains classy with only a few well-placed embellishments. Just look at how Emma Louise Connolly rocks this red dress with a crystal heart belt detail from Alessandra Rich.



Eyelet dress + coat 



Poppy Delevingne contrasted her sister's menswear-inspired look with this ultra feminine outfit from Oscar De La Renta. It's a two-piece ensemble consisting of an eyelet dress with asymmetrical hemline and a matching day coat. It's a whimsical and romantic choice that's very fitting for a royal wedding.
