🎊💒Can you hear those church bells?! It's approaching wedding season!💒🎊
There's so much to think about... the card, the gift, the transport and oh- of course, the outfit. As Chamiah Dewey Fashion know, it's hard to find an 'off the rack' perfect fit when you're part of the little people community. And so we also understand the emotional struggle behind this process. So, let's find you the perfect fit. Here's how to dress for that special occasion when you're under 4ft 11.
A couple embraces, holding hands amidst confetti showering down on them. The groom grasps the bride's pink bouquet, while the bride joyfully raises her arm in celebration.
Firstly, summer colours are an essential part of any wedding guest's outfit. Unless there's a specific dress code, we definitely advise avoiding white shades or black! Having some of those colours won't hurt, just make sure you're not stealing the bride's colour or turning up looking like you're at a wake!
If you're stuck, it's best to think about which colours best complement your skin tone. That way, it's easier to disregard certain options meaning you won't feel so overwhelmed.

If you have a fairer skin tone, soft shades and pastel colours are a great option. But, if you're fancying something a little more bold, bright pinks and blues also compliment this skin tone well.
For light and medium brown skin tones, muted bright colours are a safe option and often highlight your yellow undertones more. Or, again if you're feeling bold, rich primary colours such as crimson red or bright yellows are highly flattering and are said to accentuate facial features.
For darker skin tones, jewel tones and deep or pale shades work well. Examples could include emerald green, pastel pinks or a beautiful tangerine! 🤩

Now for the fit. At CDF, we know this is probably one of the most important parts of an outfit, and so for a wedding, it's even more vital to get right.

In terms of dresses, garments which fall/drape directly on your silhouette accentuate your natural curves and so become highly attractive. For example, our IVY Wrap Dress is a beautiful contender for any wedding guest!
For suit options, high-waisted designs elongate the body, illuding a long-leg silhouette. Square-shaped shirts and jackets pair well with high-waisted trousers and accentuate an elongated silhouette even more! Shop for our CASEY shirt here!
