Looking for the perfect wedding guest outfit? We reveal what to wear to a summer wedding with five occasionwear looks that’ll take you effortlessly from the ceremony to the evening reception.
Embellishment doesn’t have to be overpowering. Take an understated approach to wedding guest styling with a navy mini dress, adorned with small, delicate bursts of sparkle. Complement the high neckline with a simple up-do, and add to the minimalist mood with a tonal clutch bag.
Off to a country wedding? Make a case for modern florals with a petal-strewn wrap dress, elevated with pops of pink and rows of romantic ruffles. Match the softness of the dove-grey palette with a metallic silver clutch bag and nude-hued block heels.
Ruffles are a key highlight of summer event season, with a flurry of flamboyant designs dominating the SS17 agenda. After something a little simpler? Choose a navy shift dress with a single frilled panel, giving a further nod to the trend with a matching clutch bag. Complete the look with block-heeled mules in the same colour.
Embroidery is one of those trends that perfectly captures the carefree mood of summer, making it the go-to choice for bohemian weddings. Channel your inner free spirit with a blush-toned silhouette, artfully embellished with leaf embroideries and sequin flowers. Accessorise with a metallic rose gold clutch and flat sandals – a total must for beachside vows.
Metallics needn’t be written off as a trend exclusively reserved for winter occasions. Make them relevant for summer weddings in the city by styling a silver sequin cami with a pleated midi skirt in shimmering grey. Co-ordinate with a glittering clutch bag and platform heels for leg-lengthening appeal.
