With social calendars booking up fast with hen parties (of course!), weddings and other special events, now is the perfect time of year to start looking for ideas and outfits for all these fun parties. I myself have been on the hunt for an outfit for a wedding coming up very soon but haven’t found anything yet. I always say I’ll invest in one good dress or re-wear it but that NEVER happens! I tell myself the same thing again whilst I’m trying to find a new outfit for the next wedding… Below are some dresses, skirts and jumpsuits I have come across in my recent search to give you some ideas for your own occasion wear or wedding outfit wardrobe. I’m still undecided on the look I’m going to go for.
WEDDING GUEST DRESSES
A dress is always my go to for an event as once you find the right one, all you need are shoes, some accessories and voila! It can be hard to find the perfect dress though and we all know that when you shop online, you never really know how it will look until you try it on. Floral dresses seem to be very in which I’m unsure about personally as with a head of crazy curls, I think there can be too much going on for me. That said, they would be stunning on someone else and the colours in the floral dresses below are gorgeous. I also came across some black dresses which have a soft feel about them and will work well for Spring / Summer. I love the peach dress at the bottom however I tried it on and it was not nice on me. At all!
WEDDING GUEST SKIRTS
Skirts are always a great option. The big plus with skirts is that you can wear them differently so you’ll get much more value out of them – well in theory anyway! The midi and full skirt are still very much in and there are some gorgeous ones available on ASOS. The downside is that it’s not always easy to find the right top to go with the skirt.
WEDDING GUEST JUMPSUITS
I never think of looking for a jumpsuit specifically but over the past few years I have stumbled upon some nice ones and ended up wearing them. If you find the right one for you, they are gorgeous. There is something very classy and cool about a jumpsuit and they are also a really comfortable option for a long day out.
WEDDING GUEST SHOES AND BAGS
Bags and shoes are so varied these days that you can usually find the perfect pair of gold or navy heels that you would have been stressing trying to find a few years ago. There are some gorgeous shoes out at the moment and I have pretty much picked mine I just need the outfit to match!
I hope this gives you some ideas. ASOS is always my go to website for a browse as you are guaranteed to get the latest and coolest trends there. They have brands like Whistles, Dune, Coast, River Island and Millie Mackintosh you get a glimpse of everything. Plus, it’s so easy (and free!) to have them delivered and then return items if they don’t suit. I’m also a Topshop fan but not as much for occasion wear. And Other Stories is where I’m going to pop into next on my search.
