Wedding season will be here before you know it and nothing says “I’m an adult, Hun” like pre-planning outfits – even before you get that invite!
Some of my favourite looks are my wedding guest looks because I feel like I can really tap into my belle of the ball realness and it’s at those events that I’ve probably felt my most feminine and beautiful. One thing I will say though is that it is quite tricky to curate a look that is both stylish and understated enough to look like a well-dressed guest and not overshadow the bride (but I mean, she’s the bride. That’s pretty hard to do unless you wear white or a dress with a train longer than the central line).
Here are some of my favourite looks that’ll make you the most stylish wedding guest!
Sailor cut-out bamboo maxi dress
Bec & Bridge
Cedar City Maxi Dress
Asymmetric Adelaide Mini Dress
Style them with…
The one thing that I don’t love about constantly buying outfits to attend a wedding is how unsustainable it is. 9 times out of 10 you buy a look and you’re probably never going to wear it again because everyone’s seen it, right? That’s why I’m really getting into renting now. I’ve rented some pieces before for a holiday and the process is seamless. The items come freshly dry cleaned and delivered to you on your preferred date and you can just pop them back in the post once you’re done with them! Here are a few pieces to look at if you’re into renting.
Solaria Midi Dress
Myraid Cut Out Dress
