7 Top Wedding Guest Dresses for 2019
Firstly, there's no doubt about it, 2019 is following the trend from last year. The Dress is top on our wardrobe go-to's. Last year saw the trend of The Blazer. This year it's The Dress. While we haven't quite given up on the much needed additional layers, we are bucking the trend for wearing two pieces and opting for dresses for our special occasions. Influencers on Instagram maybe to blame. You can't scroll down the Insta feed without bumping into the latest day dress to have right now.
However, despite the northerly winds, many influencers have been in their dresses for weeks and weeks. And, frankly, we are amazed they have survived the icy blasts. But, now the weather is becoming warmer, we can't wait to unlock our summer wardrobe to reveal some of these beauties. We're loving the floaty day dresses and sexy bodycons alike.
And finally, the inspiration from the red carpets this month has been dazzling. But the dilemma is, what to wear for a wedding? Here are the best 7 wedding guest dresses for 2019 to help you shift through all that noise.
Beach Dresses for 2019
So, you're jetting off to somewhere warm and sandy to celebrate the nuptials of your best friend? Not only do you face the worry of suitcase packing, but also the added pressure of soaring temperatures. You obviously don't want a wardrobe malfunction. Do you opt for formal or casual? Firstly ask the bride for the dress code - sometimes it's clear it's flip flops only - so opt for something more casual that's floating and made of a light weight fabric to reflect the heat. Don't opt for black as this absorbs heat. Instead choose light colours, soft pastel shades are perfect. Also avoid reds and bright pinks as these also absorb heat - and sweating profusely isn't a great look.
