Lounge luxe is about 100 per cent glamour – so perfect for brides who want to steal the show without it looking as if they’ve tried too hard. It celebrates the holiday spirit (think St Tropez or Mykonos), with body-revealing cuts and seriously luxe fabrics. Whether you’re celebrating on the beach or much closer to home, it’s a style that needs minimal accessorising. Just clamp on the film star shades, grab a tiny jewelled clutch and you’re ready to take to the aisle in style.
