What to Wear to a Wedding: Best-Dressed Guest
Ding dong! The bells are going to chime - everyone’s favourite summer event makes its joyous returnRead more
Wedding season is upon us and our favourite big name designers and indie labels have been let loose. Summer arrives and with it comes big, breezy silhouettes and untamed colour palettes from our forever-favourite fashion houses and newly-discovered, cult labels. This event season think prairie detailing, unexpected accessories and prints last spotted in the ‘80s - see you on the dancefloor.
It’s summer and, as ever, RIXO is here to welcome you with open arms and unforgettable fabrics. Sure to be scene-stealer at any upcoming nuptials, go for the brand’s rainbow-hued, 80s Micro Shell print across its theatrical, June dress silhouette.
Acne Studios is well-versed in the art of making a nonchalant-yet-memorable entrance. A double-breasted suit is wedding attire for the low-key guest and Acne Studio’s crisp apple green two-piece is the most well-behaved of plus ones – just add Gucci Horsebit flats and you’re sure to be the last one standing on the dancefloor.
A few well-placed accessories are crucial to a summer look. In a season where weather dictate they’re kept to a minimum, an iconic pair of sunglasses, fun bag or thoughtfully-placed necktie goes a long way. A Liberty scarf is a year round essential – tie our hand-painted, printed silk around your neck, pop in a top pocket or loop through a loose ponytail.
Throw out the rulebook. Exclusive to Liberty, Paloma Wool’s body-flaunting fits and psychedelic ‘70s hues are made for the less conventional wedding guest. Slip into the cult label’s Prue halter-dress, add your favourite shades and sit somewhere to be seen.
Countryside wedding coming up? ALEXACHUNG has you covered. The summer collection’s prairie silhouettes, soft gingham cloths and modest midi-lengths will accompany you from outdoor ceremony into the late hours sipping cocktails on hay bales.
Take the panic out of wedding preparation with Ganni’s any-event midi-dress in neutral check seersucker with pretty smocked detailing. Add dress socks, loafers and a tuxedo jacket for a more formal event or sandals and sun-kissed skin for the pub garden – a fine cashmere knit becomes a cool underlayer as the night falls.
