What makes the perfect wedding guest outfit? Whether it's the dress, hat, shoes, bag or accessories, make sure your wedding guest style hits the spot…
Putting together the perfect wedding guest outfit can take time and investment – especially if you've got more than one wedding to go to. From wedding guest dresses or suits to hats, shoes, bags and accessories, our edit is packed full of super chic buys to suit all price-points.
First up, headpieces - should you go down the traditional hat route or try something a little different with hair accessories? While Kate and Pippa Middleton are pioneers of the wedding fascinator, floral hairpieces are having a real moment with Sienna Miller modelling a stunning headband.
Playsuits are set to be a huge trend this wedding season, while separates in skirt and top combos are always a great way to mix and match your look. Whistles and Ted Baker have some fantastic prints – and don't be afraid to play with contrasting patterns and textures.
Short suits make the perfect wedding guest outfit for those who are looking for something that bit more directional – see chic offerings from Karen Millen and Jaeger.
Shoes also play a huge part in the wedding guest outfit – especially when you're on your feet all day. Thanks again to La Middleton, the traditional nude court shoe is still going strong, while on the other side, adding a pop of colour with a bright shade is a great way to liven up your look - see the stunning embroidered courts from L.K.Bennett. Wedges are also a smart choice for those a little wary of standing in heels all day. And for those who don't do heels, the options for chic, bright and even embellished flats are endless.
Finish your look with the right bag – from smart box clutches from Coast to fun, quirky bags from Lulu Guinness, bags come in all shapes and sizes, and add the perfect final flourish to an outfit.
Statement jewellery is huge news this summer 2013 – and there's is no better way to add the finishing touches than with a pair of stunning earrings or a stand out piece. With everyone from Phase Eight to limited edition Swarovski spoiling us with a huge range of sparkly jewels, there's no excuse not to accessorise this wedding season.
