Baby, it’s not ‘that’ cold outside. It is Hong Kong after all. There’s no need for yourself or your bridesmaids to wear faux fur shawls, boleros or shrugs. It’s bulky, fussy and may I crudely add, fugly. It’s not elegant or graceful and adds ten years to your youthful age. Toss that idea and spend your money on more well-deserving cardigans that will transform your bridesmaids into one girly and sophisticated bunch and can be worn for years to come. Even the flower girls will look cute in a small cardi. You’ve got so many ways to play around with it; a thin belt over the cardigan, mis-matched colours, floral prints or a single colour palette. If you’re feeling especially generous, buy them cashmere cardis, otherwise, head on over to the nearest High Street shop for a inexpensive alternative!
