Hi, I'm Laura

I’m currently based in Cambridgeshire and work in fashion as a content creator. I began this blog back in 2013 as a way to expand on my love of fashion writing. At the time I was feeling pretty self-conscious so creating this platform not only allowed me to share my passion but also boost my confidence. These days you'll most likely find me in my natural habitat of wearing a massive sports jersey, binging netflix and scrolling through holidays sites.

WEDDING GUEST

SUMMER WEDDING GUEST OUTFIT INSPIRATION

It’s that time of year again, wedding season. Just because you are not the one going down the aisle doesn’t mean finding an outfit will be easy.

I can say from personal experience that buying a wedding outfit is just as stressful as jean shopping and that says something. The weather is especially difficult to plan around in the UK and you do not want to get it wrong. Keep scrolling to find some inspiration on what you should wear to any upcoming nuptials this season.

Green Palm Print Sequin Playsuit

Green Palm Print Sequin Playsuit
£65.00 RIVER ISLAND

Step away from the crowd and opt for a playsuit this season.

Wedding guests may traditionally wear suits and dresses but it’s 2019 so experiment with dress alternatives. Crafted with subtle sequins, a seasonal pattern and feminine ruffles, this playsuit would be sure to garner a few compliments on the big day.

Similarly to the model, I would style this with a contrasting coloured circle bag but to keep it formal slip on a pair of block-heeled sandals.

Navy Lace Back Satin Slip Dress

Navy Lace Back Satin Slip Dress
£55.00 TOPSHOP

Keep it sultry but sophisticated in this slip dress. Just because you can’t outshine the bride doesn’t mean you have to wear shapeless pieces.

As a wedding guest, you should always keep in mind that you are not only dressing for the ceremony but also for the evening reception. This dress can easily transition you from day to night if paired with subtle accessories and jewellery.

Clarissa Jumpsuit

Clarissa Jumpsuit
£140.00 BODEN

One of the best parts about summer weddings is the ability to wear the brightest colours imaginable.

This vibrant playsuit is such a vibe for a wedding! The palazzo legs provide dress-like movement while the banded waistline will keep you looking cinched and shapely. Plus you get pockets so no need to worry about getting a massive clutch.

Wearing such vivid colours can be difficult but as long as you keep it relatively simple you’ll be fine. Keep embellishments to one accessory, either bold footwear to peek out of the trousers or perhaps a statement bag but just make sure it is one or the other.

Navy Frill Bandeau Bodycon Midi Dress

Navy Frill Bandeau Bodycon Midi Dress
£18.00 MISSGUIDED

Sometimes cheap and cheerful is the easiest option but that doesn’t mean boring.

Bodycon has gotten a bit of a bad reputation over the years, however it’s still the top on my list when I am looking for a dress in a short time frame. This dress perfectly fits the wedding guest dress code with it’s knee length cut and frilled overlay on the chest.

Since this navy dress is skin tight you have the options of going wild with the accessories. Sleek hair and statement silver jewellery will be the chicest option for this dress.

PRINTED DRESS WITH BELT

PRINTED DRESS WITH BELT
£39.99 ZARA

I think this has to be one of the most amazing dresses I’ve seen so far this season.

If you turn up in this dress I’m sure you will get much-deserved attention. Puff sleeves are so on trend right now and this dress has the skirt to match. No matter what your height, your legs will look sky high in this piece!

Minimal accessories and block coloured heels will be the ideal match for this dress.

ASOS DESIGN SUIT IN APPLE

ASOS DESIGN SUIT IN APPLE
FROM £85.00 ASOS

Another fab alternative to a dress, the blazer co-ord.

We’ve all seen the rise of the power suit and how people have styled it for formal occasions but here we have the summer version. Tailored shorts have quickly caught on, making them the obvious choice for summer wedding styling.

Like before, this set just needs minimal styling. Try a white lace bodysuit and complementing court heels.

MUSTARD DOUBLE BREASTED WOVEN SUIT

MUSTARD DOUBLE BREASTED WOVEN SUIT
PRETTY LITTLE THING

The next natural outfit has to be the power suit itself. When worn solo with nothing underneath, the original plunge neckline will add an emphasis of femininity.

While pastels are a favourite this season, I personally love a bold tone. I believe if you have a powerfully structured outfit it needs to have a powerful colour to enhance it. This double-breasted outfit is ideal for weddings but would also be great as seperate pieces within your wardrobes.

Cleo Strappy Lace Dipped Hem Lace Midi Dress

Cleo Strappy Lace Dipped Hem Lace Midi Dress
£135.00 Jarlo

If you’re looking for a formal yet feminine dress then look no further than this Jarlo dress.

Nothing says elegant like a fishtail hemline. Summer-appropriate and whimsical, this form-fitting midi practically screams wedding guest.

Simple strappy heels and a matching clutch are the only accessories necessary when your dress has this much character.
