Most women go for a simple and elegant dress, and there is a lot of choice online and on the high street. Many look to celebrities for inspiration. If you hate dresses or simply want something different, there are a number of options.

The Trouser Suit

More and more women are choosing to go for a lovely, classically tailored trouser suit. Designed especially for women to accommodate and flatter their curves, the trouser suit is a great option to go with. Team it with a simple silk top and accessories in your favourite colours or patterns and you’ve got a look you can customise for every event.

The Jumpsuit

They used to be the type of thing you only wore to work or decorate in, but now the modern jumpsuit couldn’t be further from its origins. Coming in slim, skinny, flared or wide-legged shapes with a whole range of necklines, finding a jumpsuit to flatter your size and shape is simply a matter of looking.

The Classic Dress

When it comes to wedding guest dresses it is important to remember to choose something that is simple and timeless so that you have the opportunity to accessorise it differently or change it up for the next occasion that comes along. There are so many styles out there it can be hard to know where to look first. If you’re stuck for a starting point, take a look at for some style inspiration.

The Smart-Casual Look

These days weddings aren’t all formal affairs, and for those with an evening invite or a more casual style, jeans could be the perfect choice. Pair them up with an amazing top that really wows the crowd and a stylish pair of heels and glamorous accessories to match and you’ve got a look that is versatile and will stand out for all the right reasons.

Whatever look you go for, remember that the outfit is just the beginning. It’s the time you spend with loved ones, friends and family that really matters.
