Fashion Friday: A Taste of New York

Here at West Weddings Towers we love fashion – and not just bridal fashion, but the styles that adorn the fashionable wedding guest (among which we like to fancy ourselves!). As an outlet for our passion for all things style (and let’s face it, who doesn’t enjoy an opportunity to dress up?), we’ve decided to make ‘Fashion Friday‘ a weekly blog feature to give you some inspiration for the next wedding you attend. (You may even find some inspiration for everyday attire, as well!)

Why Fashion Friday? Beyond being a shameless opportunity to ogle some fashion, there is a practical side to Fashion Friday, which is to save you money! Yes, you read that right. In our most recent magazine issue, we revealed the enormous price tag attached to being a wedding guest, and one of the top budget-breakers was wardrobe.

‘How will looking at clothes I don’t own help me save money?’ you might ask. Good question. While you may find yourself purchasing one of the items shown on the blog, we ultimately hope that that these style collages will give you an inspiring glimpse into the versatility of your own wardrobe! Sometimes it takes seeing things on someone else to help you see the potential lying behind your own closet doors.

We took inspiration for the look below from one of our favourite fashion bloggers (from New York, appropriately), Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific. While the black may read a bit flat on its own, it has huge potential for being dressed up with shiny jewellery – reminiscent of Christmas tree baubles and twinkle lights appropriate to the oncoming holiday season.

(And if you’re not quite bold enough to dare the black – take inspiration from the shapes and textures … and check back next week for fashion that plays more by the rules!)
