Communion Outfits


Communion outfits don’t have to be complicated ladies, I know I have received numerous messages for girls wondering what to wear for the day. Its tricky as its gone very dressy ..more like attending a wedding :)…

My advise is keep it simple…keep it dressy but not an outfit for a wedding. I think its important to bear in mind when purchasing an outfit ,to remember what you have hanging in your wardrobe already, and what you are about to purchase could potential go with some of your other items you already own. Therefore you are going to get more wear out of it after the communion day is over. Be it a blazer, top, skirt or trousers. Because lets be honest there is no point in buying something to wear for one day.

Also bear in mind its about your little ones day and keep it simple elegant and demure 🙂

So on that note here is my options for you which would look good and be completely wearable again.

Occassional outfits
Top Oasis €46, Warehouse midi skirt €84, Bag New look clutch €28, New Look Pink Sateen knot front tie heels €38. White off shoulder top €12.99. Warehouse Prom Skirt €63

Skirts are a great alternative as they can be worn time and time again and go with almost any other top in the wardrobe..wear a black top with either of these skirts and you can wear this outfit for a date night or night out with the girls. And both those tops above can be paired with jeans.

Dressy heels
Warehouse Jumpsuit €89, New Look Pink heels €27, Asos Shirt detailed Jumpsuit €73.33, New Look silver heels €27, Warehouse culotte Jumpsuit reduced to €29, New Look gold heels €34.99

I love a jumpsuit and they pretty much suit any occasion. Its always a nice alternative to a dress and looks very chic and modern. These ones are great for this time of year and I love the colours. Throw a blazer over any of these and it’ll still look smart for a communion. Jumpsuits you will wear time and time again. And if you don’t have one then considering investing in a nice tailored version.

New look Nude Pink Suede Stud Heels €34.99, White trousers Warehouse €52, Warehouse Burnt out top €51. HM Earrings €9.99, New Look blue strappy heels €27, Topshop Dusty blue cigarette trousers €34

Trousers are always a great option. Its nice to have something a little different. I’m loving the lovely bright colours around at the moment and I know I’ve said it before but you will wear them again to a barbecue or christening event or any other occasion. You can also add a different top with these trousers, to completely change the look, be it a light jumper with flats for day time, or heels and a top for a more dressy night out outfit.

White Jumper H&M €22.99, Hot Pink Ruffle Skirt Topshop €57, Rose Gold bag Asos €31, Asos Rose Gold Heels €35, HM Camisole Top €14, Miss Selfridges Nude Faux Leather skirt €40, Missguided Clutch Asos €12, Asos-Dune Alice Nude heels €44. Oasis Floral Sleeveless top €47, Oasis Floral skirt €52.

Its always fun to add a pop of colour or add print to make an occasional outfit stand out. I love this pink top with ruffles, I would definitely wear it again to some other event. And I’d swap the white jumper for a sleeveless top or camisole. All these skirts are a little different, but yet not completely out there, that you wouldn’t wear them again with other things. I paired the floral skirt with a floral top but again you can wear a more plainer colour to tone it down a bit. All of these can be worn as separates so you are getting more value out of the outfit.

I purposely left out dresses girls just this time round as I wanted you to look at what you could possible wear already from your wardrobe. And to look at purchasing an outfit that you can wear the separates with numerous things you had already.

Hope this has been helpful

Until next time
