It’s the peak of summertime, and while the air is filled with refreshing coastal vibes and the golden sun gives everyone a glowing tan, there seems to be something else that’s putting a little more pep in everyone’s step.
It’s wedding season.
Summer makes the wedding season special because the weddings feel a little untraditional but remain rustic and grounded. Beach weddings have become a trend in recent years, with more couples opting for ceremonies in the North Coast or Gouna and other beaches, whether in Egypt and overseas.
The question on our mind before these exciting events is always: What am I going to wear? You start sorting through options that flatter and look gorgeous, make you stand out in the photos, yet be free to celebrate with your friends, family and dance freely.
MITCHA style experts have come to the rescue, and curated these pieces to help you shop for the style that most suits your style and needs. From brocade corsets in gold threads to glittery sequins, flowy fabrics and on-point jewelery, MITCHA offers you a complete special occasion wardrobe designed by some of Egypt's up established and emerging couture and ready-to-wear designers, statement bags and fine jewelery houses.
For the bridesmaid
We believe that elegance, simplicity and style never go out of fashion, the Halter Flowy Dress by Margeni lets you join in the joy of those you love in an easy and effortless look that is perfect for any time of day.
For an added flair and pop of color, pair it with this season’s hottest accessory, the new SS19 collection of Sadafa bags. Available in several geometrical patterns, the Sadafa clutch is a simple and stylish way to celebrate in any season, so we recommend it as an investment for your wardrobe. This simple red dress would go especially well with the Evolve White.
If you’re looking to make a strong statement as you party the night away, though, then look no further than the new Striped Sequins Dress by Lit. In its vibrant colors and sequins, it is sure to make heads turn.
Style it with a more toned down Sadafa clutch like the Colors (Salmon) clutch for a complete look.
For the classic girl
For something a little more comfortable and easier to move in, jumpsuits are one of the sure winners for a polished look at the wedding. Have a look at the Silk Jersey Jumpsuit by Camicie strikes the right balance between party and sleek. In its striking silver colors, and comfortable fit, you never have to sacrifice your comfort or your style.
For the girl who never wants to leave the beach
Sometimes the sand, sun and cool breeze are just too difficult to let go of. If it’s difficult for you to set your summer style aside even for a little while to dress up for a wedding, Kerrat’s Pua Pua gives you a look that vokes beach yet supreme elegance.
Stay in touch with the ocean with the Necklace with Pearl by Beit Ghaly. The simplicity and elegance of the single pearl necklace is the perfect beach accessory that shows everyone your love and devotion to the ocean.
For the shy one
For a calmer look that still makes a splash, then you may want to look into the Gold Sequins Off-Shoulder Dress by Maison Saedi. The neutral palette of this dress is perfect as it would compliment the sand tones of the beach while the sequins blend in with the party vibes.
To top off the look, wear it with Noha Abassi’s Mini Nova Stackable Rings. The simple star design is reminiscent of a starfish, which keeps you looking elegant yet fun with all the beach undertones of the full outfit.
For the glamorous one
If your style is extravagant and unapologetic, it might be tough sometimes to tone it down for a more understated beach wedding. There’s no need to compromise, though, when you can style Gold and White Brocade Corset (Flower Print) by Rafik Zaki with a neutral tull skirt. The Rosary Necklace with Diamond Coin by M Collection comes highly recommended to accompany this look, especially if it’s a morning wedding.
For the practical one
It's often a tricky situation when you have to attend the wedding ceremony in the morning then attend the reception later that evening. It's a delicate balance, but you can strike that balance in Saqhoute's Chiffon Beige Dress. Its elegance and length make it ideal for this kind of day-to-night transition.
For the one who is always on trend
We've been seeing that many of our evening wear designers like to highlight the beauty of asymmetry as well as show off the beauty of a woman's collarbone and shoulder. Stay on top of the trend in Maison Saedi's Blue Metallic Silver One Shoulder Dress.
If you want a lighter tone, then try Maison Saedi's Gold Sequins One Shoulder Dress.
For something even more of a daring statement, then Cherie Sami's Asymmetrical Sequined Mini Dress is a sure way to rock this look while still not upstaging the bride, of course.
