Wedding Guest Outfits You Haven’t Thought Of Yet

Share

Getting dressed for a special occasion is at once exciting and stressful—on the one hand, it’s a thrill to elevate your everyday garb, but on the other, such dressiness can easily make you feel, well, not like yourself. In the case of summer weddings, guest attire can run the gamut depending on the venue (vineyard, garden party, city, boathouse—you get it), but we see them as a prime opportunity to challenge yourself and go outside your comfort zone. After all, summer fashion carries a cheerier disposition, so why not play with prints, befriend color or mix up your go-to silhouette? What’s more, festive accessories can take it one step further, be it a rose-gold sandal, embellished bag or bow-adorned mule. Here, we lay out four wedding guest outfits to try—from prim to polished, we dare you to experiment.

Shake Up Your Look In Gorgeous Wedding Guest Attire

Silky separates in a subtle color block imbue a sense of chic nonchalance and feel equally feminine to a dress. Add unexpected extras into the mix, like a rose-gold sandal and pale pink pouch. Dainty studs that climb the earlobes are a perfectly delicate finish.

If you're already one to embrace color, a bias-cut floral motif is a fresh alternative to solid shades. The silhouette is decidedly modern with a pink bag, bow-adorned mules and daily hoops in tow.

Black is far too safe for a summer wedding (and technically a faux pas). Instead, ease into color with monochromatic separates and darling extras—the look is just as flattering, will likely spur many more compliments and is sure to enhance your summer glow.

Pants fans tend to adore the no-fuss approach, but really, you kind of can't beat a one-and-done piece in its place. Glimmering heels, a frilled clutch and a dainty weave ring keep the fun alive.
