Good weather is getting closer and closer, and with it our favourite season – wedding season! No matter if it’s the all important wedding of your best friend or a more casual and carefree ceremony at the beach, our Personal Shoppers have put together some suggestions of what to wear for every occasion. Get it the wedding guest look right and all eyes will be on you for all the right reasons, aside from the bride of course.
Here’s our favourite looks for wedding guests, including the perfect summer wedding guest outfits.
Looks for formal wedding
If you are attending a wedding that is traditional in style, play it safe with a classic cut and a midi length. When can you take a risk? With the colour. Choose a vibrant colour that will fill your look with energy. An electric blue or a bright mustard shade are sure to be a hit. Pair with metallic sandals for a bold style or some basic black sandals for those who prefer a classic look.
Looks for a casual wedding
If you have a wedding without a specific dress code most of the time you don’t really know if you’ll be over or underdressed. This can make it tricky to decide what to wear, but there are a few rules you can follow to be sure you get the look just right.
Go for a timeless animal print- this look is never out of style so you can’t go wrong. An animal print dress in a trendy colour will give your wedding look a carefree and relaxed touch. If animal print is a little too much for you, try a floral print midi skirt and pair it with a white basic top. The shiny touch of the skirt paired with the romanticism of the floral print will create a mixture of sophistication and simplicity. Lastly, don’t forget to accessorize and add some sandals with a touch of something special such as fringing or embelishment.
Looks boho for a wedding
An exotic wedding at a paradise like location such as a beach can complicate your options for the perfect wedding guest outfit. Nevertheless, this becomes the perfect opportunity to wear a long backless dress that will make you feel carefree and beautiful like a little hippie. If dresses are not your thing, take advantage of the occasion and go for a unique look of flower print blazer and trousers that will add comfort and elegance in equal parts. Complete your outfit by adding some straw wedges for the ceremony and don’t forget to have your stilettos nearby to dance the night away.
Looks with polka dot dresses for weddings
A very special wedding is coming up and you feel like going the extra mile and choosing something on trend, don’t think about it too much… polka dots are your answer! You can find this print in every store at the moment. Easy to wear and very elegant, polka dots will make for the perfect wedding guest outfit.
If you’ve had the chance to get a little tan before the big occasion, take advantage and go for a dress in earthy tones that brings out the colour in your skin, and get ready to become the trendiest wedding guest. If on the other hand you still haven’t had the opportunity to go on vacation, a midi dress in pastel colours will give you a feminine and delicate touch. Give full protagonism to your dress by pairing it with some nude accessories.
Looks for a night wedding
A wedding at night is the perfect occasion to bring out your sexiest side.
A fitted red dress will make you unrivalled when it comes to wedding fashion. This is an iconic piece that will become a wardrobe staple. If you are the kind of person that associates the evening with black don’t hesitate in choosing a long black dress with some shine to it for a little extra sensuality. Pair it with some high heels and bold accessories.
