Whether you’re heading abroad to an exotic destination, a city wedding or have RSVP’d to ceremonies in rural locations, deciding what to wear can be a daunting task.
To help ease your wardrobe woes, using my personal stylist experience I have highlighted alternative styles that will take you effortlessly through every wedding and beyond.
The Dress up, Dress Down Dress
With a whole host of options available, wedding outfits don’t have to be the ubiquitous tight watercolour floral shift dress. A multi use midi or maxi dress like the one shown below from M&S is a perfect example. Dress down with flats and a casual bag for lunch out; add tights, roll neck and boots for winter. Dress up by adding a great pair of shoes, and accessories, as shown below on Fran Bacon blogger/influencer at The Fashion Lift.
The Jumpsuit & Playsuit
The versatile ‘all in one’ can be either contemporary or classic. Whilst jumpsuits/playsuits might not be an obvious contender for a typical wedding outfit, they can make quite an impact. Feminine frills at the front keep the style demure yet flirtatious, while an open back with detailing adds instant glamour.
Self-Portrait is a great destination for fashion forward wedding outfits, with lengths and styles to suit all body shapes. Outfits don’t even have to be worn with heels — a plus if the wedding day involves walking on grass - a pointed flat or ankle boot will balance out many of their silhouettes. To add an even more contemporary edge throw on a leather jacket.
Suiting is firmly on the fashion radar for this summer, especially in a spectrum of airy and neutral tones. If you have a great pair of legs give suiting an update by swapping your trousers for a pair of relaxed, tailored shorts and layering with a pretty silk lace trimmed cami. If you prefer to cover up this gorgeous suit at Ted Baker ticks all the boxes.
