Accessories Making Us Say 'I Do!'
There’s nothing like a white wedding…except, perhaps, a pastel-coloured party? Or understated neutral nuptials? When you’re attending a glamorous big day this summer, you’ll be wanting to look your very best (and fit that colour scheme!), so here at Penneys we’ve carefully curated a gorgeous selection of bags, shoes and jewellery to inspire you, from €4.
There’s enough to think about when planning a wedding when you’re a guest, let alone the stars of the show! Between transport, accommodation, and presents, your outfit plan can all too easily become a last-minute scrabble round the shops. Allow us to make this process a step easier – we’ve got all the accessories you’ll need. Even the most simple shift dress will look the height of chic with a sequined clutch bag and statement necklace! Coordination is key, and we’re thinking pink, gold, taupe and soft greys.
Embellished clutch €12, shoes €14, choker €4
Clutch €8, hair accessories €4
What’s a special occasion outfit without a hint of sparkle? Our sequined clutch bags come in a range of colours and patterns, but we love this eye-catching pink and black colourway. Get some strappy, glittery heels on and finish with a glitzy choker, et voilà! We recommend a plain shift dress for this look, so as not to upstage your eye-catching clutch.
For a wedding that oozes sophistication, a neutral palette is essential. Our smaller, envelope handbags are minimalistic and perfectly understated. Catch them quick though – with envelope clutches from €8/$9 they’ll fly off the shelves! For this look, a peplum dress in pale grey or pink is perfect. Finish off with some statement hair accessories, such as a glittering comb or feather mini-fascinator, at just €4.
Clutch €8, court heels €19, fascinator clip €5
Patent clutch €8, shoes €22, clips €3
For a candy-coloured do that has everyone saying ‘aww’, a pale pink co-ord will have you looking suitably sweet! A ruffled tea dress can be topped off with a metal-trim clutch, some simple but stunning court heels, and of course a beautifully delicate fascinator. Our occasion range of headpieces and hair accessories is in stores now, and we’ve fallen for it!
Similarly stunning are our range of heels leading into late summer and autumn. From wedge to block heels, and mules to stilettos, there’s something for every wedding! These latticed beauties are just €22/$25, and will bring a touch of glamour. Wear with a cocktail or mini dress, and don’t forget to top off your effortless look with a patent clutch for a fun and unexpected pop of colour.
Envelope clutch €8, shoes €14, clips €3
But if this all seems a bit too plain for your bolder style, why not play with texture and print for a show-stopping outfit (just don’t upstage the bride!). We’re swooning over these glittering heels at €14/$16 – they’re just asking to spend all night on the dancefloor. With a snakeskin-look envelope clutch under your arm, all that’s left to do is pin some curls into a dramatic up-do.
So, there’s no need to fret when you read those dreaded words on your next invite: “smart casual”! Dressing to the nines needn’t cost the world, and Primark/Penneys has everything you need to make your outfit sparkle.
