Twice As Nice

  

Did you know you that when you hire a Girl Meets Dress dress (try saying that 5 times fast!) you get to keep it for 2 nights? Why would I want to wear the same dress 2 nights in a row, you ask? Well with a little clever styling and some celebrity inspiration, you can take your dress to a whole new level for a second night running – unless, of course, your first night was so raucous the thought of leaving your bed is more than you can handle.

Take this gorgeous Fendi dress – just £169 for 2 nights. Luscious and luxurious in 100% silk, this stunning dress has real red carpet credentials.

Carey Mulligan is Hollywood’s darling, and her red carpet style is coveted by editors of glossy magazines the world over. Pictured here in Miu Miu, she unexpectedly pairs her sweet dress with opaque black tights and leg lengthening black heels finish the look. Accesorise with a pixie crop, or a cute up-do if you have longer hair. And remember – when channelling Mulligan’s style, less is more: no need to go overboard with accessories, the simple belt is enough.

Pair your classic pastel Fendi from our collection with Wolford tights, taking this dress from spring to bitter, English winter in one fell swoop. Towering black heels are a must, keeping your toes inches away from puddles, or go for a shoe boot if you feel like upping the ante.

This sophisticated yet sweet dress would be perfect for a date, special dinner, office party – you name it! The options are endless.

For a true red carpet look, bring a date whose pockets are extremely useful for all your essentials – lipstick, phone, etc. Celebs never carry a handbag on the red carpet, why should you?

Alexa Chung is truly the Queen of Cool, and the perfect inspiration for our ‘day after’ outfit. Alexa’s quirky cool style lends itself perfectly to ‘the second night out on the trot’ – and, if you ask me, I am sure she is more than partial to a good knees up!

As much as this Fendi is the perfect glamourous outfit for that special event, it is also ideal for a relaxed day or evening spent with friends. Make like Alexa and pair with last nights opaques, or go for some patterned or deep jewel-coloured tights.

‘Borrow’ your date’s cardigan, swap the removable belt for a vintage find and throw on a a cosy, knitted scarf. Luckily for you, tousled hair is part of the look, and last night’s make-up is more of a do than a don’t. For the true Alexa experience, don’t forget your brogues!

Head to the pub for some ‘hair of the dog’ or have a brisk stroll around town to perk you up (bacon sarnie, optional). Your friends will all be dying to know your secret – go on, share the love: Girl Meets Dress £20 gift vouchers bought now are worth £50!
