1. SUIT UP

Iblues Crine Blazer

 

A dress may be the first thing on your wedding guest shopping list, but this season, consider a suit instead. Look for pale or pastel hues (except white of course), then add a slinky blouse, statement accessories and fun, summer mules to lift the ensemble. If you can’t decide between a suit or a dress, do both - and try draping a tuxedo jacket over your shoulders in a floaty midi dress.

2. DRESS-FATIGUE JUMPSUIT

Phase Eight Sierra Linear Floral Jumpsuit

 

If you're ready for something new this wedding season, a stylish jumpsuit makes for a refreshing change from the classic wedding guest dresses. This contemporary floral style with short, cap sleeves is elegant and chic. We guarantee it’ll be your go-to throughout spring and summer.


Phase Eight, Sierra Linear Floral Jumpsuit, £49.50

 


3. HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE

Ted Baker Dolley Rocoo Printed Mini Dress

 

If you’re heading to a more casual ceremony, maybe an afternoon garden party or a back-yard ‘do, then a simple printed mini dress could be just the thing. We’ll be teaming this pussybow-printed style with a low, block heel sandal and statement earrings to keep the look on the right side of dressed up.

4. HOT SPOTS

Mela London Polka Dot Shirt Dress

 

When it comes to prints, if you’re looking for a new contender that’s not of the floral variety, this might just be the one. The classic polka dot has been sported by all the style greats, from Elizabeth Taylor to Julia Roberts. Pair with white heels and pearl hair slides.


Mela London, Polka Dot Shirt Dress, £45.00

 


5. LACE UP

Michael Michael Kors Lace Dress Womens

 

This pretty lace dress is adorned with silver accents and three-dimensional flowers. Because of its detail, you can afford to keep your accessories minimal with a strappy sandal or court shoe and clutch bag – although we would really prefer a matching glass of red.


Michael Michael Kors, Lace Dress Womens, £54.99

 


6. MEGA MAGENTA

Phase Eight Riley Chiffon Dress

 

An instant mood booster if ever we saw one, this hot pink midi dress from Phase Eight provides a welcome change from the classic pastels and spring florals you normally spot in the pews, while the nipped in waist and flowing skirt will flatter all body types.


Phase Eight, Riley Chiffon Dress, £44.50

 


7. PLEATS PLEASE

Michael Michael Kors Chain Neck Midi Dres

 

Could royal blue be the shade your occasion wear wardrobe has been calling out for? Michael Kors’ chain neck midi dress would indicate so. This super-flattering silhouette will nip you in at the waist and the pleated skirt will skim over your lower-half, while still giving you some serious swish on the dancefloor. Pile on plenty of embellished accessories.


Michael Michael Kors, Chain Neck Midi Dres, £151.00

 


8. THE BRIGHT SIDE

Ted Baker Tilliii Scallop Bodice Knitted Dress

 

Warmer weather and bright colours are a match made in heaven – so embrace full-on exuberance with bold colours. To really multiply the effect, throw in some clashing, coloured earrings or strappy sandals. This baby blue will look equally chic mixed with beach-worthy textures and accessories like woven raffia sandals and straw clutch bags – perfect for a seaside occasion.

Yes, you can wear mismatched separates to a wedding – it’s a sure way to look effortlessly cool in the pews. This sequin style will look uber-chic with a white shirt and pointed courts for a more formal look, or if your event is a little more casual, add a luxe silk camisole or puff-sleeve blouse, gold earrings and statement mules.
