When should you wear a dress?
Table cloths and dress shirts can make great bedding, but when is the right time to wear a suit?Read more In our recent podcast episode, we spoke to dress designers from all over the world to find out how they dress in a range of circumstances.
We also asked them what they thought were the best ways to dress when you’re travelling, and to give us a taste of what you might find in your closet.
In our interview, we were also able to ask some questions from the public about what they wear in a variety of situations.
We were particularly keen to hear about what it is like to be in a meeting with the same friend twice a week, when a travel partner has just arrived in your home country, or when you are travelling on business.
Read moreOur interview with Victoria and Matthew was also a great way to learn more about their wedding day, where they both chose to wear their wedding dress, and how it was different to their usual dress.
Victoria said: “I didn’t know what to expect on our wedding day so we were surprised to find that it was very different.
It’s a dress that we both love, so we really wanted to make it a very special day.”
Matthew said: “[The dress] felt a little bit heavier than usual, so it made it a little more of a formal affair.”
They went to London’s Victoria and Mark Jacobs for their wedding.
The couple chose a wedding dress from the British Royal Collection for their special day.
Victoria added: “The dress has a big lace bodice and a short skirt that’s a little short in the back and the skirt’s long.
It gives you the option to do a little skirt boho or a little formal.”
It was a very easy dress to wear and we liked it so much that we kept it in our closet.
“In addition to being the perfect dress for their ceremony, they also wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to wear something a little less formal for their second wedding anniversary.
Matthew added: “[It was] a very casual wedding dress and we wanted to do something a bit more traditional for it.
I’m really proud of it and it’s something that’s definitely in our style now.
We still love it.
“We’re happy with the dress because it’s really comfortable.
It also doesn’t have any embellishments, which means it’s more practical for a busy day.”
Victoria and Matthew have been travelling for years, but they both felt comfortable wearing their usual wedding dress for this occasion.
Matthew said: [It] is very easy to wear because it has the same size and shape.
I think it fits me well, but it’s also very comfortable.
“What to wear for a wedding receptionWhere you should wear a wedding suitRead moreVictoria said that her husband and I chose a long-sleeved, blazer-like dress that was easy to move about in.
It had a little longer sleeves than our usual dress, so I didn’t have to worry about looking as formal as usual.
We chose to dress it in a simple, casual, black blazer.
Matthew said that he wore a simple white dress for the reception because he wanted to bring his friends and family together.
It was a dress he loved, but didn’t think it would look good in public.
Victoria agreed: [I] was happy with it and I think that was the main reason why we chose it.
Matthew explained: “When we got home, we put it in the fridge and then I took it out, and I thought, ‘I’m going to put it back in the dresser, I want to wear it in public.'”
I don’t think [our wedding] was a big party so it was kind of a small affair and a nice way to celebrate our engagement.
I wanted it to be a little quieter and I wanted to wear the dress in an easy way.”
I was in a very formal room and the dress was really comfortable so I wore it and thought it was a good idea to dress up the day.
“What you should avoid when you wear dresses on your wedding dayRead more Victoria said: We did our wedding in a casual room, so there were no decorations or anything that made us look like we were going out.
We just wore a long, plain dress that has a simple blazer and black blazers.
It worked well for us.
Matthew added that he didn’t want to go out at all on our first wedding day as he wanted the occasion to be special.
Victoria agreed: “As I was getting ready, I wanted my husband and my sister-in-law to come in to celebrate their wedding in the evening, so the reception was quite quiet.
But I didn`t want to have to sit down in a room with people in a different place than me.
“I wanted them to feel like they were in the room with me.”
We chose a short white dress that had a very plain bod
