1. SUIT UP

Michael Kors Pink 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 Amira Lace Sleeve 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 style with short, eyelash lace sleeves is elegant and chic. We guarantee it’ll be your go-to throughout spring and summer.


Phase Eight, Amira Lace Sleeve Jumpsuit, £140

 


3. HEART ON YOUR SLEEVE

Allsaints Flores Hearts 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 sweetheart-printed style with a low, block heel sandal and statement earrings to keep the look on the right side of dressed up.


Allsaints, Flores Hearts Dress, £168

 


4. HOT SPOTS

Warehouse Spot Print Frill Midi 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.


Warehouse, Spot Print Frill Midi Dress, £69

 


5. LACE UP

French Connection Chante Lace Mix Dress

 

This pretty lace dress comes with a flattering sheer panel, giving the illusion of a plunging neckline while adding a little more coverage. 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.


French Connection, Chante Lace Mix Dress, £150

 


6. MEGA MAGENTA

Coast Tori Halter Jumpsuit

 

An instant mood booster if ever we saw one, this hot pink jumpsuit from Coast provides a welcome change from the classic pastels and spring florals you normally spot in the pews, while the nipped in waist and wide legs will flatter every body type.


Coast, Tori Halter Jumpsuit, £129

 


7. PLEATS PLEASE

Oasis Twist Neck Chiffon Midi Dress

 

Could sage be the shade your occasionwear wardrobe has been calling out for? Oasis’ twist-neck chiffon 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.


Oasis, Twist Neck Chiffon Midi Dress, £75

 


8. THE BRIGHT SIDE

Oasis Button front midi dress

 

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


Oasis, Button front midi dress, £55

 


9. SKIRTING THE ISSUE

Coast Harper Jacquard Skirt

 

Yes, you can wear mismatched separates to a wedding – it’s a sure way to look effortlessly cool in the pews. This floral jacquard 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.


Coast, Harper Jacquard Skirt, £179

 


10. TITLE

Michael Kors Bloom Dress

 

Not only are they seasonably suited to spring's new blooms, but a floral dress conjures images of sunshine-soaked summer days (which can't come quick enough, we say). This midi dress, with its bell sleeves and highlighter-bold hue, reinvents the typical floral number.
