Editor-at-large Peta Hunt from You and Your Wedding magazine shares her insider tips for impeccable wedding guest outfits
Keep it classic
A timeless pencil dress will never go out of style, keep it modern with exciting details like feather hems, lace fabrics and bold prints – albeit not all at once! Or of course you can rely on your little black cocktail dress, just be sure to wear it with bright accessories.
Jump to it
This season the jumpsuit has made a serious comeback. Try one with embellished shoulders or beaded bodice and pair with killer heels and a smart clutch. The wide legged trouser is also a chic new option worn with a midi top or shirt for the bolder fashionista.
Play with trends
An interesting silhouette, or an asymmetric hemline or neckline will give you a cool edge for a modern wedding guest look. For a more classic style, a blazer with a pencil dress will always make a statement outfit.
