Spring wedding guest looks for those tying the knot in the cold01 March 2019
Springtime is beginning to surface and while it’s still early to get out your sombrero, you might need to grab your fascinator.
Because as well as the sound of birds nesting and longer days hoorah, spring is that time of year when everyone wants to get hitched.
It’s fine. The only bitter thing here is the weather...
Chances are you’ll be indoors, but people have peculiar ideas when it comes to their big day, and heaven forbid you be papped smuggling peanuts on a Cornish beach. Thankfully, chilly weather is no surprise to us Brits, and your favourite fashion brands are clearly mindful of this when designing stunning wedding guest attire. We’ve scoured the catwalk and the internet to figure this out - these are the spring wedding looks that will keep you looking hot and tastefully toasty on that big day.
Of course. Since the jumpsuit came back into our lives (did it ever leave though?), it has taken us through many a chic and effortless look. Understated, guaranteed to guard your legs from Church or other drafts and sure to do you right on the dancefloor - it’s a winner.
Opting for a cowl or plunging v-neck line will add subtle interest, while bright and warm amber colours or even pastels like lemongrass will make this a showstopper.
If you like the practicality of this shape but want to go a little more out there, you could explore the trouser suits for weddings at the likes of ASOS. Work this as a formal top and trousers or go for a full-on co-ord for effect.
Layer-up on Patterns
You might be able to squeeze a thermal vest under some dresses, but this isn’t the layering that we’re raving about. The SS catwalks saw the marrying of both very different patterns - say, why not pair jacquard with floral? It works really well.
The number 1 rule here is to steer clear of primary reds, greens and any ornamental accessories that could bring on crimbo nostalgia.
Pastel colours like almond and rose work like a dream on ruching, lace, frills and more. You can still wear velvet, if you opt for blue hues or ombre, which has taken us by sweet surprise.
Contrast soft colours with drama in overall length or with a statement kimono sleeve and you’ve nailed effortless elegance.
