Best Dressed Wedding Guest
Wedding season is already upon us, and the question of "what should I wear to a summer wedding?" is on a mind of many women who are heading to a celebration. Starting with obvious, white is off the table, but there are plenty options to choose from including pastel tones, floral prints, sating gowns and classic black dresses.
If you are searching in high street stores, look at brands like &otherstories, Lavish Alice and Jarlo for budget friendly, yet stylish and flattering styles, that can be worn time and time again for many weddings to come. For more formal and simple affairs, head to REISS, Ted Baker, Jenny Yoo and Reformation as they all have a great selection of classic designs that can be paired with neutral tones and minimalistic accessories. If you'd prefer an alternative choice; black dresses are never a bad idea, and styles from Abercrombie & Fitch, Norma Kamali and Mango are the top of my person shopping list. Lastly, if you are not a big fan of midi and maxi gowns and prefer to keep it short, BA&SH, Karen Millen and Pretty Lavish will be your go-to to places for cute and wedding appropriate short designs.

Maxi Satin Classic
The maxi dress in shade of blue, green, pink or beige will not only be a perfect choice for a bridesmaid, but it's also an ultimate chic dress for summer and spring wedding. Pair it with minimalistic jewelry and nude sandals to complete the timeless look.
Floral prints never go out of style, and summer is the best time to blend the print into formal wear. To make sure that focus of the look stays on the print, style them with clutch close to the colour of the dress and minimalistic shoes.
Short & Sweet
Wearing short dress to the wedding could sometimes be a controversial topic, but there are many stylish and wedding guest appropriate options for those who are not set on midi and maxi styles. Choose the dress in one colour or with subtle print, and for open shoulder styles, pair them with neutral blazer.
Blue Colour Spotlight
Blushed Pink is a classic summer wedding guest colour, but pastel blue will be a great alternative that you should try this year. Style the dress with darker shade of blue and silver jewellery.
Off Shoulder Midi Dress
A classic midi, colorful dress is always a go-to for formal occasions in summer, but the off shoulder styles are the ones to go for this year. When it comes to styling, you could either choose safe neutral heels and small necklace, or bring more fun to the look with statement shoes.
Sophisticated Black Dress
Elegant and timeless option, that doesn't have to be boring if you go with right accessories and dress style. Choose midi or slit dress, and style them with neutral or red heels. Closed toe heels will be a better option for bodycon styles, while sandals will go best with more flowy dresses.
