The best outfits for every type of wedding guest

We all know the most important dress on a wedding day is the white one at the end of the aisle, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make an effort to feel great too.

The cami

Intended to be elegant and effortless, the cami dress is the most simple piece on the list, but it can sometimes be hard to pull off. With minimal material and small spaghetti straps as the only detail, camis are one of the biggest trends of the season, especially in the silk variety. Ideal for a beach wedding, pair with intricate jewellery and a pair of thin sandals to prove that sometimes less is more. 

The shirt dress

Perhaps you’re only attending the evening wedding soiree or maybe you’re just looking for something a little bit more laidback and comfortable for a long day of celebrations, either way, the shirt dress is a super flattering and light alternative to more formal options. If you want to dress it up, opt for a clutch and statement earrings.

In recent years, we’ve seen the suit completely reinvented for the modern woman, it’s no longer restricted to the professional boardroom and it’s certainly not exclusive to men.

It’s the dress that’s absolutely everywhere at the moment – the wrap dress. Although it can easily be dressed down with a pair of crisp white trainers and a tote bag, it’s also the perfect floaty dress to take you from wedding breakfast to evening party. There are endless ways to to wear a wrap dress, and don’t be afraid to experiment with prints and colours for added oomph. 

The jumpsuit
