If you’re looking forward to a summer wedding you’ve been invited to, but you don’t really know what to wear yet, don’t worry at all because we’re here to help you out. We have four useful tips on how to nail your outfit and be the most stylish guest at a wedding, so check them out and see what’s on the fashion menu this summer!
You can’t go wrong with pretty pastels
As you may (or may not) already know, pastel color palette will be a huge hit this year, which is exactly why you should give it a try. Even though a lot of people think of pastels as of perfect shades for spring, the truth is that these will look equally pretty in your summer outfits as well, so be sure not to skip colors like pale pink, mint green, muted blue, yellow sorbet, and soft lavender. Of course, head-to-toe pastel outfits will undoubtedly place you at the top of a list of the most stylish guests, but if that simply isn’t your cup of tea, you can just go for a pair of elegant shoes and a matching handbag in one of the aforementioned shades and you certainly won’t make a mistake.
On the other hand, bright shades are also very popular
This may sound a bit contradictory, but the fact is that bright colors will also be in style this year, alongside with the pretty pastels, which is the great news for all those ladies who have always loved to make a statement with their clothing combos. If you’re one of them, you should probably pick garments in hot pink, deep red, turquoise blue, bright yellow, fiery orange, and emerald green, as these are the hottest shades for the upcoming season. A midi dress and a perfectly tailored menswear-inspired suit are never a bad choice, and these will help you accomplish a flawless A-list-star look for the upcoming wedding. Just match them with either black or nude strappy sandals, add an elegant clutch, and voila – your fabulous wedding guest outfit is all done!
Rock a fabulous kaftan and be the most stylish mom-to-be ever
Yes, we assume that moms-to-be think that coming up with a fabulous look for an upcoming wedding is an impossible mission, but trust us when we say that it doesn’t have to be like that at all. Needless to say, you should put your comfort first simply because partying all day long isn’t exactly the easiest task for a future mom. That being said, you should definitely decide to wear a kaftan, especially if we’re talking about a beach wedding. Apart from being extremely versatile and more than comfortable, this piece is also really stylish and trendy at the same time. Does it get better than that? Well, it does, because kaftans are highly likely to hide your growing belly and help you appear a bit slimmer. So, if you haven’t really come up with your perfect beach wedding combo, just go for a lightweight dress in your favorite shade, throw a kaftan on the top of it, and you’ll nail it like a true fashionista!
A pair of comfy yet trendy flats is always a good choice
As already stated, you should definitely put your comfort first – no matter if you’re expecting or not. This is particularly important when speaking of footwear appropriate for beach weddings, as high heels and stilettos are likely to sink into the sand, make you lose your balance, and even make you look like you’re drunk – which is everything but stylish. So, you should opt for trendy flats instead and avoid the embarrassment of everyone looking down on you because of your poor footwear choice. A pair of knee-high leather gladiator sandals is one of the best possible options, as these will perfectly match your flowy dress and a trendy kaftan. Just don’t choose flip-flops under any circumstances and you’ll do a great job!
As you can see, being the most stylish guest at an upcoming summer wedding doesn’t have to be a tricky task – on the contrary, it’s actually a piece of cake, as long as you’re sticking to our tips and following our basic guidelines. Once that’s done, you can be sure that everyone will notice your flawless combo and wonder: ‘Gosh, who’s that girl?’
