Summer occasionwear at Regent Arcade

At last, it’s spring - which means that wedding season is on the horizon. Whether the prospect of choosing what to wear as a wedding guest fills you with excitement or dread, you can get your outfit, jewellery, accessories and shoes easily sorted all in one trip to Regent Arcade.

For garden receptions, a floaty dress is a pretty & feminine basis on which to build your outfit. We like the embellished chiffon designs and flirty tea dresses on offer at Miss Selfridge in BHS, with prices starting at around £25. Also in BHS is a Dorothy Perkins concession, which stocks a great range of chic peplums, colour blocking and brights. Mature ladies will love the figure-flattering shift dresses and bolero jackets at Roman, making the latest trends wearable.

Don’t forget to stop by TK Maxx on the first floor to find your favourite designer brands at amazing prices. With top labels such as Ralph Lauren, Guess and Reiss, all with up to 70% off the RRP, you can bag yourself a real bargain. The TK Maxx store at Regent Arcade has just undergone a massive expansion and is now bigger and better, which means even more designer finds!

If you’re looking to complement your dress with some show-stopping shoes, you’ve come to the right place. With the latest addition, quality leather brand Shoon, joining Schuh, Moda in Pelle and Sole, Regent Arcade should be the first port of call for any shoe fanatic with a passion for stylish, quality footwear.

What’s more, River Island, TK Maxx, BHS and Dottie Chic all have their own in-store shoe collections, giving you even more to choose from. Accessories really make an outfit. For formal weddings, a fascinator adds the perfect finishing touch. TK Maxx stocks designer versions by top brands such as Edina Ronay at a fraction of the original price. Dottie
Chic, a one-of-a-kind boutique located in the Gallery on the first floor, also specialise in beautifully crafted fascinators and hairpieces.

For ladies on a bit of a budget, worry not as The Little Bag Company has a huge range in seasonal colours and styles, none costing more than £9.99. With a beautiful range of delicate tiaras at the modest price range of £5-£25, it’s worth recommending this store to the bride as well!

Pearls are a classic and feminine way to update any summer occasion outfit, and there are plenty of designs to choose from here at Regent Arcade. At Crystal Chain, you can pick up a freshwater pearl pendant for just £24. Better still, each purchase comes beautifully boxed with a gift bag. Pia also stock a quirky range of pearl jewellery at prices that may surprise you, inspired by the patterns and forms found in nature.

Whatever your shape, taste or style, we’re bound to have clothing and accessories you’ll love here at Regent Arcade.
