Wedding Guest Style Guide

09 September 2017

This season calls for a laid-back dress code for all wedding guests, which opens up an endless array of possible outfit choices and accessory combinations. Looking at your wardrobe with worry? Don’t stress, as we have some stylish solutions that’ll have you crowned as ‘best dressed guest’.

This elegant Olivia Burton rose gold hummingbird watch from Joshua James makes the perfect arm candy and is the ‘it’ accessory this season. The cream coloured strap keeps to the more traditional wedding colour schemes, while the gorgeous rose gold colour keeps in modern, fresh and something you can wear for seasons to come.

Introduce a subtle pattern to the boys’ ensembles for added colour and character, like this Hugo Elondo shirt from Jules B. Smart and sophisticated enough to be paired with a waistcoat or suit jacket, but could still impress when worn with jeans.

Guests wearing white at weddings is a trend that emerged a few seasons ago and it’s still a popular trend. This Michael Kors dress from Psyche is dainty, pretty and effortlessly elegant. Pair with bright, bold heels or a contrasting set of pumps.

When jeans are too casual and a trouser suit simply won’t do – chinos are the perfect choice. Offering complete comfort while retaining serious style points. We’re loving this pair from End Clothing – something a little different from black too!

Playsuits are the perfect alternative if you want something different than a dress. This one from Have to Love is gorgeous with its long sleeves and elegant lace. The ideal option as a playsuit remains suitably formal and modest for the wedding ceremony itself, and becomes the perfect party outfit for the evening do too.

If you want to add a smart balance to the more casual shirt and chinos combo, a blazer is the ideal finishing touch. This Aspesi Washed Work Blazer works perfectly over the top of any shirt and adds the smart element without the stuffy effect of the traditional suit jacket.

Smart casual weddings allow the men to ditch formal suit jackets for the more casual shirt and braces look. Still dapper and charming, this laid-back option is perfect for guests and groomsmen alike. Find these classic Boston Stripe braces at Thomas Pink in York.

With its neutral colour scheme and elegant embroidered design, this adorable Lavina Embellished Flap Bag will fit in perfectly at any wedding, and doubles up as a clutch and shoulder bag to suit both daytime and evening party needs.

Bringing smart and casual together in one highly stylish design is this Loake Errington Brogue Boot. These will pair perfectly with suit trousers or chinos, and the tan colour and ankle boot design adds a little more laid-back character to any formal outfit.

Jumpsuits are another fantastic wedding alternative to dresses. This English Girl paisley jumpsuit takes you a touch more towards the formal end of the scale in terms of cut, while maintaining a playful and bold casual element with the print and colour.

For guests wanting to leave the tie at home, but still want to maintain a smart look, this Tennent Stripe classic fit shirt is the ideal solution. The stripes along with the subtle blue and white colour scheme will ensure you look the part, even when worn untucked and without a tie.

One more for the ladies – this charm RENNE symbolises the three most important words at a wedding; I Love You. Perfect for an understated yet elegant necklace with that extra special meaning. It’s also doubles as a fantastic gift for the bride too!
