3 Rules for finding the perfect wedding guest outfitThe invites are flooding in thick and fast, and you can’t possibly wear the same floral shift dress again. So how can you mix up your existing wardrobe to pick the perfect wedding outfit? Follow these three rules to wedding outfit success…

3 Rules for finding the perfect wedding guest outfit1 Look beyond the dress option

Your summer dress collection might be thin on the ground, especially if you’re rotating between weddings. Think about what you have in your wardrobe that you could dress up or down for a wedding. You’ve probably got plenty of cute printed co-ords in your work wardrobe that you can jazz up for wedding season with a sparkly tank or silk cami. Your favourite work skirt is just dying for a wedding invite; this Loin Cloth & Ashes beauty (R1 149) is a perfect choice.

2 A wedding jacket is key

If you find the perfect pretty ‘wedding jacket’, you’ll be able to wedding-ify pretty much any outfit you own, including an LBD. We adore this floral blazer from Vila (R799).

3 When it comes to shoes, comfort is key

Whether it’s standing in the church through three verses of ‘All Things Bright And Beautiful’, or sipping champagne on the lawn while the bride and groom take two hours of photos, you’ll be on your feet a lot. So bypass painful shoes and opt for some tried and tested comfortable heels or flats. We love these cut-out Tosoni heels (R1 295), which are comfortable all day long thanks to the chunky low heel.
