The classic red dress
Is there anything more timeless than a simple red dress? This classic style is something you can comfortably invest in knowing that it will never, ever fall out of fashion. Opt for a simple column cut style with thin straps for endless dressing possibilities. Keep it glamorous with neutral accessories and delicate jewellery to let the bold tone of your frock do all the talking, save time, save stress, look amazing.

Off the shoulder ruffles
Off the shoulder styles are universally flattering and they carry that beautiful romantic air that all weddings have by the bucket load. Look for a soft, feminine pale blue tone with ruffled accents for a gorgeous wedding guest ensemble that’s sure to photograph perfectly. Wear your hair up or sweep it back with a headband to really show off the beauty of your Bardot style evening piece.
Lace up back
An ornate back is a great way of going for something a little unexpected for your next wedding. Lace up styles give your look a nod to vintage corsetry while adding a contemporary edge to more demure styles. Keep hair, makeup and add ons nice and simple to make sure you don’t over power this statement wedding guest dress style. If you have long hair, up is a must if you want to show off the key detail of your lace up back dress.
Want to amp things up a little with your wedding guest styling creativity? Then a statement mini dress style is the way to go! Look for an eye-catching colour like a soft muted lilac, dusty rose or navy and focus on unexpected materials like layered feathers, ruffles and tulle to really stand out from the crowd. This is a great option if you’re in need of a dressing refresh at the tail end of the wedding season.
Your shoulders are the perfect place to focus your styling if you’re looking to switch things up from the basic evening wear silhouettes – and there are so many choices out there to experiment with! Voluminous puff sleeves are a great place to start if you’re just dabbling in emphasising the upper half of your dress, plus they’re classic and very feminine making them a beautiful option for everyone. If you want something slightly more daring, try tie up shoulders, exaggerated shoulder pads or even sheer adorned tulle shoulders for a more traditional evening dress feel.
There are so many fun, classic and creative options out there when it comes to finding the right wedding dress guest attire. Any one of these ideas is sure to be a hit no matter where you’re headed this wedding season. Remember to be mindful with your styling and invest in pieces that you truly love and make you feel your very best as you enjoy countless happy events ahead of you!
