Our Favorite Guest Looks for Every Wedding 

June rolls on with a lot on it’s back: summer is starting, vacations are getting underway, and the year is nearly halfway over. Where did it go so fast anyway? June also brings us the bells and brides of wedding season.  When the champagne colored, card stock invitations start arriving in the mail and it’s time to start putting together those reception-ready looks. Take a peek at some of our favorite wedding guest looks for the upcoming season! 


Weddings are usually formal dress affairs, but that doesn’t mean you can’t keep your personal sense of style. For that elegant simplicity, try a solid color floor-length dress, dazzled up with a few touches of bling for that extra sparkle.

Dusty rose is one of the top wedding trend colors for 2018, and a simple fit-and-flare style is classic, without looking basic. There’s no going wrong with a long dress at a wedding, and there’s no denying that the classics are classic for a reason.

Clean lines and solid shapes are modern and sophisticated, but there’s room to add a hint of unique flair. Try breaking up your geometric look with a pair of swirling earrings!

We’re seeing a lot of green on the scene for 2018, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s a versatile hue that can be dressed up for a moodier black tie event, or kept bright for those outdoor parties with a more natural vibe. If you’re looking to go green but still want to keep it on the neutral side, sage is an excellent choice for your next wedding look.

The ruffled sleeves provide a sweet feminine touch, while the open shoulder and deep neckline show just the right amount of skin. Pair it with a chic matched jewelry set, and you’re ready to show that it’s a lot easier being green than you’d think.

Not a fan of wearing skirts and dresses, but want to break the mold of the traditional “button down and slacks” look? Try a jumpsuit! They’re coming into style in a big way, especially for summer.

Sophisticate your jumpsuit with a blazer and belt, along with a pair of stiletto heels and drop earrings to help you stand out in the crowd without overshadowing the bride.

Or maybe you’re stuck between wanting to wear a suit and wanting to wear a dress, or maybe you’ve just got a nice dress that feels a bit too simple. The solution? A blazer over a dress. Problem solved!

The blazer gives you that suit vibe, while a cute midi-length dress will keep you poised to head out onto the dance floor as soon as your favorite party jam comes on during the reception. It’s a win-win solution that’s full of possibilities!  Plus, deep reds and wine colors are all the rage this season, even for summer!

For those looking for glitz and glam, especially with the popularity of black and gold themes, a sequined mini-dress is your razzle-dazzle go-to.

We’re absolutely in love with the sexy art deco mood of this look, and the shower of sparkle steers clear of being much-too-much with a solid pair of pointed toe pumps.

Blue, and shades of blue, is extra hot for weddings right now; from navy to powder, it could be useful to have something blue of your own on hand if you foresee attending more ceremonies in your future.

A swing dress might seem a bit on the casual side, but great accessories can pack that wow factor into your favorite comfy swing. Take it to the next level with metallic silvers for a polished elegance.

Finally, if you’re trying to capture the full-length feeling without the restriction, or you’re trying to land on something truly unique, search no further than an asymmetrical hemline.

Higher in the front and lower in the back, and completely unique. The flower detail in the middle of this dress gives it one extra dash of pop to complete the outfit! Pair it with your favorite shoes and a wide bracelet to finish it off.
