Wedding Guest Styles to Wear this Summer

One of the most difficult outfits to shop for has got to be that of a wedding guest. Not wanting to upstage the bride or groom, a wedding guest outfit should be occasion-appropriate, whilst also stylish and original.

Pastels and florals will always be go-to styles for weddings, and you can’t really go wrong with 50s-inspired, glamorous looks. A floaty maxi dress paired with Grecian-inspired metallic accessories will look great for a summer wedding, or opt for a cropped top with high-waisted maxi or midi skirt for something a little more current. If you want a look that’s slightly more experimental, structured dresses, asymmetric lines, a jumpsuit or a matching trousers-and-top set will also make the perfect wedding guest look.

When it comes to accessories, clutch bags and cross-bodies are go-to styles for weddings. Chic and sophisticated, they’ll be able to carry all of your essentials without weighing you down. They’re also a great, subtle way of injecting a bit of personality into your wedding guest look, whether it’s a fun, playful style from Karl Lagerfeld, Rebecca Minkoff or Lulu Guinness, or clean simple bags from Aspinal of London, Ted Baker or Modalu.
