    It seems like every man and his dog are getting married this time of year.


    Just kidding, I love love.

    Chances are your go-to wedding outfit has already got a serious workout this late into the season. So here's 11 things I found that are wedding-friendly and you might actually wear more than once.

    Tapestry Films

    1. This floral-embroidered, lace-trimmed Cooper St dress, which will make you look like a leading lady from the Golden Age of Italian cinema.


    Ugh, it's just so pretty. An illusion neckline, lace overlay, asymmetrical hemline β€” this gorgeous dress wouldn't look out of place in Sophia Loren's wardrobe. Add a red lip and braid crown for a gorgeous ~romantic vibe~.

    Buy from $40.75 from Amazon Australia.

    2. This precious stone headband which will add a touch of whimsy to any formal occasion.

    The Iconic

    Why buy a new dress every time someone gets hitched when you can just spruce your outfit up with accessories? In which case, this statement headband is for you. Featuring a range of natural stones β€” including jade, rose quartz and onyx β€” it is the touch of difference that will make your classic ensemble like new again.

    Buy for $55.20 from The Iconic.

    3. This lace-laden, periwinkle blue Forever New dress, which your mum would approve of.

    Forever New

    Romantic and feminine, this lace dress with a handkerchief hemline is a pastel lover's dream. Featuring an illusion neckline, capped sleeves, an open back and feature bow, it's every bit the ladylike outfit your mum loves to see on you, without being at all stuffy.

    Buy for $189.99 from Forever New.

    4. These silk kitten heels, which will elevate any ensemble, while ensuring your feet aren't killing you by the end of the night.


    Take a walk on the sartorial side with these kitten heels which have been living on my wish list for a while now. Unlike your mates, there'll be no need to peel your shoes off by the time dessert comes around β€” a sensible 5.5cm heel allows you to dance around in comfort, while a satin upper and fan detail will give you a conversation starter whenever you need it.

    Buy for $175 from The Iconic.

    5. These beaded, velvet headbands, which will instantly make your hair look chic, despite you having done nothing more than brush it.

    Yeah, not the first time you've seen a headband on this list and with good reason. If, like me, you're challenged when it comes to styling your hair for special occasions, few things come as handy as a headband. These particular ones are fashioned from lush velvet, are embellished with pearl-like beads and have a knot design to centre. You'll look like a duchess β€” without the prince or intense public scrutiny.

    Buy a set of three for $20.75 from Amazon Australia.

    6. These canary yellow Steve Madden stilettos, which are the pop of colour you always wanted to incorporate into your look.

    Another way to bring a different attitude to a well-loved look is by simply swapping out the shoes. These particular heels come in five different colours β€” nude, royal blue, black, gold and yellow β€” and honestly, the yellow is just so damn happy. How could you resist? A genuine leather upper and elastic straps to ankle and vamp ensure comfort despite its height.

    Buy from $127.72 from Amazon Australia.

    7. These drop dead gorgeous Bling Bar earrings that give a contemporary twist to classic pearls.

    8. This beaded From St Xavier bum bag, because...well, it's a bloody beaded bum bag.

    9. This Third Form Intrigue Bias slip dress, which has just enough detail to stand out from the sea of satin in the congregation.

    Third Form

    You've never owned a slip dress like this. Featuring adjustable tie-up straps, I've seen this dress worn slightly looser, like the above photos, making for a more relaxed silhouette β€” and tighter, creating a more figure-hugging shape and higher hemline. The timeless black colour, classic satin construction, keyhole detail to bust and ribbon back feature β€” 100% a dress to wear over and over again.

    Buy for $220 from Amazon Australia.

    10. This beaded, velvet drawstring From St Xavier purse, that looks like a prop straight out of Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge!

    11. And finally, this Third Form Paisley Trouser, because women rock suits harder than men, let's be honest.

    I know this list has been dress-heavy, so here's something for the more androgynous dresser. This excellent trouser from Third Form features a high-waist, wide leg, ankle-baring hemline β€” and perhaps my favourite detail, a tonal paisley pattern throughout. Lining from waist to seat ensures it will last you for years still (no wearing down at the thighs!). Wear with its matching jacket closed, black stilettos and nothing else at all.
