I have an engagement shoot coming up and I don't know what to wear!

I have an engagement shoot coming up, and I am struggling to find the right thing to wear white dress or outfit to wear!

To paint the picture, my fiancé is going to wear a white shirt and linen trousers and the photoshoot is taking place in an old Georgian town. I am into a natural aesthetic, I am blonde and 5ft 7. I am open about the fabric, silk, linen, cotton etc. And would to be on the smarter end, but with a casual edge so that it doesn’t look like these are our wedding shots!

Any ideas or links would be SO appreciated as I am currently feeling quite lost! <3

Hi! How exciting!

It sounds like your fiancé’s outfit is quite simple so I would suggest mirroring that and going for something chic but cool. I adore this Khaite dress - it is on the pricey side but is so stunning.


Another more affordable option would be a simple silky slip dress like this one from Rixo or this cool jumpsuit also from Rixo.

I think a slip dress which leans towards a little off white and feels a bit contemporary would be really beautiful.

maybe something like this OOTO LONDON Sheer Panneled Woven Maxi Dress | Karen Millen

or perhaps one of these from rixo - they feel a bit more casj than a wedding dress vibe

alternatively to keep things quite different from a dress/wedding shoot - go for a white suit or suit tux blazer with really nice lapels


I would go for something linen like your fiancé, I have tried this dress on in Reformation and it is so lovely! I think you would feel smart in it but being linen makes it slightly more casual and wouldn’t look like a wedding dress
