Francy Answers: what to wear under your graduation gown

Hello Francy,

I am in desperate need of your help.My mom bought me this beautiful blue high-low chiffon dress for graduation but I want to accessorize it. The thing is… I actually suck at accessorizing. I have no idea about what to do with shoes, jewerly, or a belt. I bought a gold belt from little 5..but I have no idea if it works or not. Would you be able to help me?? I would be eternally grateful!!

So first things first, I love the fact that you choose a wrap dress to wear, lately I’ve been loving them myself as they are extremely figure flattering and “sexy classy” as I like to call it lol 😉 I think it is a good idea to change out the belt that comes with it and put your own to dress it up a bit but I would suggest going with a coral color instead of a gold (the belt I wore in here is exactly the same kind I think would look great with your dress). Coral pink and cobalt blue look excellent together and would be lovely for the occasion.

Try finding a skinny waist belt, preferably one that was a hidden belt buckle or a bow instead of a typical belt buckle (like the one I wore here).

Below are more Coral Belt Options:

If you’re not a fan of coral, a yellow or kelly green belt in the same style I described would also work well with the blue of your dress.

Sandals are part of the classic spring shoe staple. It seems as if the more straps the sandal has, the better it is this season. Experiment with colours and accents. Or you could go for the clean, classic gladiator sandals. Just don’t forget a cute pedicure!

Three Ways to Wear a Skater Skirt

The skater skirt has taken the UK high street by storm, and despite its first appearance a couple of years ago now, it’s still as popular as ever. Wear with cropped tees, jumpers, blouse’s, t-shirts, bralets, you name it! I’ve styled the same skirt three different ways to encourage you to get the most out of this staple piece.

Smart Casual

 
To smarten this grey marl skater skirt up, tuck in a blouse and layer over a jumper, providing a pop of colour as well as warmth. A little collar poking out is one of my favourite looks at the moment, and paired with Converse or boots, this makes for a perfect every day outfit.

Dinner

Draw attention to your favourite blouse by pairing it with a plain coloured skirt and clutch for a dinner or summer party. The femininity of the skirt flatters your shape and doesn’t draw the eye from your shirt on top. Slip on some pretty pumps and you’re ready to go!

Team your skirt with a neon crop; another of this seasons trends, for a night out with the girls. Add a statement necklace and some heels and you’re all set to party the night away!

What to wear to a Spring Wedding

Weddings are a time to look your best, regardless if you’re in the actual ceremony or not. If you’re single, it’s the perfect opportunity to meet a friend of a friend (just make sure they aren’t trying to reenact wedding crashers). If you’re in a relationship, it’s the perfect time to show all your friends and more importantly exes that you haven’t seen in a while that you still got it (be honest, you know you do it too). So yea, needless to say, the stakes are pretty high. Luckily, we got your back ;). Check out our how to post for inspiration on what to wear to your upcoming Spring weddings.

wedding outfitLook for dresses that areform flattering but not overly sexy. Try finding aknee length cocktail dress in a soft pastel or warm coral like the one pictured above. Remember, sometimes more is more, show some skin but make sure you remain tasteful. Complete the look with neutral accessories and a cute white blazer.

Day to Night: Printed Pants

With the warmer months approaching, it’s time to ditch those plain winter pants and brighten up your wardrobe. The patterned trousers trend is becoming increasingly popular in both the UK and the States this Spring. Surprisingly, these bold statement pants are also amazingly versatile and easy to wear. Don’t believe us? We put a friends’ pair to the test to see if they can go from day to night.

Day: Wear your patterned trousers as a casual every day look with a plain jumper or top like this Primark one here. You’ve still got a pop of colour to turn heads, but you won’t stick out like a sore thumb when browsing the high street. Embrace the warmer weather (when it finally comes) or strut down the Mediterranean streets in a cute lace cami or blouse, paired with a floppy hat and sunglasses.

Francy Answers: How to prevent buyer’s remorse

CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC

“Dear Francy, I feel like I’m constantly going shopping, then going back and returning things a week later. I seriously hate doing this but I keep shopping because I always feel like I never have ANYTHING to wear. I hate my closet so much I’m thinking of getting rid of everything and starting from scratch. Do you have any tips on building a better wardrobe? “

If you’re anything like me, you can probably empathize with this reader’s dilemma. I use to have a very similar problem (and as a result still have items in my closet with price tags attached because I never wore them after purchasing). It sounds to me like the real issue is buyers remorse, a condition that although painfully annoying, is luckily preventable. Below are the three questions I try to ask myself before and while I’m shopping in order to prevent buying items I will later regret.
