With CUMO London’s latest spring summer collection, you can rest easy going out and facing off on the dance floor, knowing that your every concern ( for fashion and style) have been taken care of.
In this blog, our top model and muse (Gayle), picks her 3 best spring summer wedding looks from our latest collection. Looks to get you noticed!!
LOOK 1. LATIFAH/ZITECHI Mini and Midi dress.
Features: 3 tiered skirt, exaggerated sleeves, vibrant pink, green and white colours print design, priest/dog style collar and comes in two lengths. Handmade with 100% Ankara cotton fabric.
Gayle says: “ This dress is so pretty and perfect for weddings. The print is so beautiful, and the colours are very cheerful. I love the flirty playful flair and the fact that it’s made of cotton makes it even more perfect for the warmer days of summer. This dress says, ‘notice me’ and you can’t help but notice anyone wearing this. It comes in two lengths as well, making it a top choice for friends with similar tastes but differ in style. With this dress, you’re bang on trend for every event you may have this spring/ summer!”
Top features: lace, cotton blend fabric, wrap style with puff sleeves, mid-riff length, designed with your absolute comfort and personal style in mind.
Skirt features: Ankara fabric, vibrant blue white and yellow print design, zip adjustable thigh-high split, A-line.
Gayle says: “How can I describe how much I love this outfit in order to do it credit? It’s giving me that sexy-girl-boss-vibes. I get excited just looking at this outfit. The puff sleeve wrap top and the long skirt...ooh. Looks dang right powerful!! This outfit is so beautiful and is a great example of very well thought out design and style because you can adjust the styling to suit your personal preference. With the zip adjustable slit, you can go thigh high and show off your gorgeous summer ready legs, or zip it low to give you a demurer and more modest look if that’s more you. No matter how you style this look, you’ll always find yourself the centre of attention! (All we ask is that you don’t outdo the bride if you are wearing this look to/for a wedding) I don’t think you can ever go wrong with the Kamdiri top paired with Lupita maxi skirt as a style option for weddings in this bright and warm season. And oh, did I mention that....IT.HAS. POCKETS!!”
LOOK 3. JASMINE -WRAP MIDI DRESS
Features: wrap style, midi, short sleeves, v-neck, collar, belt attached, burnt orange, grey and white colours print design.
Gayle says: “One of my favourite styles is the wrap dress, a CUMOLONDON all time staple dress and with an amazing array of prints and designs introduced with each new collection, the CUMO London wrap dresses always have a special place in my heart. This particular print and colour is soooo perfect for a summery wedding. You can’t go wrong with this versatile dress that can take you from the registry office to the wedding party, dinner or other celebration planned. I just love how this dress is perfectly adaptable to fit multiple occasions. Wear it with beautiful high heel shoes and nude lips for daytime, then switch on it’s party mode by swapping shoes for dainty heeled sandals and a bright red lipstick for extra oomph! If this colour is not to your taste or style, then feel free to choose from the other equally beautiful prints and colours available on the website!
For curvier babes, bring the belt of this dress round you to the front and tie as tightly (but as comfortably as you can) and snatch to define and accentuate your waist!”
