Guys, what to wear? I need dress, shoes and accessories; my current wardrobe does NOT include white and I feel very :meh: about wearing it.

Prefer V-, boat- or cowl-neck, not super-short, no jersey, no denim, no stilettos (cos I don't want my feet to plunge into the lawn and impale me on the spot), no metallic finishes.

Possible?

How about dresses from Ted Baker?

Or dresses like these. I'm not sure exactly what kind of dresses you like, whether you like flowers or girlie dresses. Since you said garden party, I chose some dresses with floral prints. I found these on asos. Another good place to look for dresses is coast, oasis and french connection. And then you can base your accessories and shoes around the dress once you find the perfect dress.

Wear something floral and solid green little shoes and a little thumbnail beanie hat. Then hide in a bush and whenever someone walks by jump out and scream, "Flower power!!"

I'm a big sucker for a nice onesie too.



Or you could wear something one-piece, with wedges. A maxi dress, and wear a big sun hat for extra "I'm mysterious and cool" points.





I like jumpsuits too.

I only lurk in bushes in a trench, but thanks a lot for your other input :kiss:
