WEDDING GUEST DRESSING - WHAT TO WEAR

Posted on

It’s that time of year again - wedding season. And with it comes the search for the perfect wedding guest outfit. Whether you’ve got stacks of invites lining your mantelpiece or just one really exciting one, it’s a still a daunting prospect deciding what to wear.  

Country, city or abroad, a dress that you love and feel confident in will see you through them all when styled slightly differently for each. Spring and summer weddings make the perfect occasion for tapping into floral trends and Katherine Hooker’s floaty silk dresses are the ideal investment piece. We’ve taken our Stafford Dress in Neutral Floral and styled it with three different jackets to give you an idea of how you can wear it. 

What to wear to a city wedding?

There is nothing that says city-slicker more than sharp tailoring and sleek silhouettes - something Katherine Hooker jackets and coats have in abundance. So for a city wedding, be it London, Paris or New York, we’ve paired the Stafford Dress with our extremely popular Tallulah Jacket in Cream. The best thing about the Tallulah Jacket is its versatility, it works with a dress, as we’ve shown, and looks just as fabulous with wide-leg palazzo trousers, for example. The collar can be worn down for a more tailored look or up as a Nehru-collar.

What to wear to a country wedding?

Pastels for summer weddings might not be a ground-breaking style tip, but there’s a reason these colours are timeless. The Tallulah Coat in pale pink could not be more perfect for wedding guest dressing. Worn over the Stafford Dress, the coat avoids any risk of chill when the weather takes an unexpected turn for the worse. Add some sartorial zing by accessorising with a statement brooch or earrings. Finish with a neat clutch or take a leaf out of Meghan Markle’s book and opt for the sophisticated top-handle handbag.

What to wear to a wedding abroad?

Heading to Europe for a wedding this summer? Under the Tuscan sun you can afford to be bolder with your outfit choice. Have a bit of fun with your outfit by injecting some colour in a sophisticated shape. The Tasha Jacket in Dusty Blue will brighten up a neutral dress and, to save on your carry on space, wear it with a white shirt and jeans for the airplane. We suggest pairing this look with wedges rather than stilettos – comfortable and perfect for a trip abroad. 


And lastly, if you really want an outfit that no one else will be wearing, we offer a custom-made service from our atelier in Chelsea. Find out more about how this works here. Book an appointment via email or by phoning the shop at 0207 352 5091.
