Wedding Guest Outfits – What Will You Be Wearing To The Royal Wedding?

After months of talk and media coverage, the royal wedding is almost upon us, so not long to decide on those all important wedding guest outfits. You did get an invite didn’t you? no us neither, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make the most of that extra day off work with a right royal party to celebrate Will and Kate’s nuptials in style.

It is of course going to be the wedding of the year and probably the decade and it would seem such a shame to let the occasion go by plus there is no better excuse to get dressed up in your most fab party dresses.

Even though not many people have been invited to the royal wedding, there will no doubt be countless other couples choosing the same weekend as the royal couple, so you may well be needing those wedding guest outfits. Choosing wedding guest outfits can be a task that strikes fear into even the most stylish of girls. It isn’t that difficult though just follow these simple rules. Wedding guest outfits should be smart and look like you have made an effort, they should not however be white, try to over shadow the bride in anyway or be too revealing. Try and choose something that fits with your usual style and that you feel comfortable in. Smart dresses teamed with a pair of heels make perfect wedding guest outfits.

taffeta dress

The seasons ladylike trend works so well for wedding guest outfits. Look for mid-length dresses and pretty details. We love this gold rosette front taffeta dress by Ben De Lisi at Debenhams.

sheer dress for weddings

This charcoal sheer dress by Phase Eight is incredibly flattering and the wrap style helps to define the waist for a feminine silhouette. It would look great accessorised with a bright orange clutch bag.

For the rest of us, a street party, garden party or house party are all great ways to gather your friends together to celebrate. You can keep an eye on the TV so you don’t miss out on seeing Kate’s all important wedding dress (as if). In the run up to the royal wedding you can also do a bit of people watching and check out the wedding guest outfits for the celebrities. You can choose whether to get really dressed up in your smart dresses of go for something a little more relaxed with casual dressed.

floral dress

This floral chiffon dress by Rare is a great choice for wedding guest outfits but would also work well for any royal wedding party whether it requires smart dresses or casual dresses. Add some nude heels or tan coloured boots depending on the look that you would like to achieve.

striped dress

Rare have a range of more  casual dresses with really on trend Peter Pan collars which would be ideal for a street or garden party (weather depending). We love this striped Peter Pan dress which again would look great with tan coloured boots.

floral maxi dress

A maxi dress is a great choice for all sorts of parties. This maxi dress from the H! by Henry Holland collection at Debenhams has a fun print which is sure to get you plenty of compliments.

The Blue Dress Can This Really Be The Only Colour You Need This Season?

One of the biggest trends in party dresses for SS11 is the blue dress. It is bold, it is bright and if you wear it to a party you can be sure that you will definitely not go unnoticed. It was a key look at several of the designer fashion shows back in the September fashion weeks and now it is also filling the high street shops and online fashion retailers.

Mesh Tube Dress – Rare Fashions

There are all sorts of blue dress to choose from. You can opt for a simple minimalist style or a more elaborate style with ruffles, frills or laser cut detail, the key to this look is to choose a really bold shade of royal blue.

Unfortunately the blue party dress is not for everyone. Such a strong colour will not look good with every hair colour and skin tone. Generally speaking it will look best on those who have a high degree of contrast between their hair and skin tone and a cool complexion (so undertones of blue, pink and purple). For those who blue is not their colour, there are plenty of other choices of party dresses for SS11.

Cream Calf Length Dress – Miss Selfridge

The cream or white dress is set to be another key look with all sorts of delicate detail including lace, embroidery and applique. These colour looks great on those with brown or black hair and olive skin but it also suits a range of other colourings. They also look great on those with a suntan.  One tip when choosing your cream or white dress, if you are going to a disco with lights be sure to test the dress for transparency first and make sure that your under wear is not visible.

Biba Asymmetric one shoulder maxi dress – Biba

Red party dresses are another eyecatching look that will be big in SS11. There is something iconic about a red dress that is captured so well in the classic love song ‘lady in red’ by Chris De Burgh. One shouldered and draped styles of red dress are particularly popular and a very flattering choice. Red dresses look great on those with  blond or brown hair but look best on those with warm skin tones (undertones of orange, olive and yellow), there are plenty of different  shades of red to choose from so try a few different options to see which suits you best. 

Orange Pleated Swing Dress – Miss Selfridge

Orange again is a great colour for those with warm skin tones and works particularly well for those with mid brown hair colours. Bright orange is one of the most popular shades for the summer but if you are unsure of whether you can pull it off, there are a whole range of coral and peach shades which are also really on trend.

If accessorising a bright party dresses leaves you wondering where to start, there are a few easy options. Nude shoes are a great investment as they work with just about any colour and will help to elongate your legs. For the rest of your accessories you can choose to keep it neutral or go for the clash. A bright orange clutch bag with a blue dress or a purple bag with an orange dress will make your party dress look even more eye catching.

Love Gossip Girl, Love Miss Selfridge! The New Range of Party Wear

Love Gossip Girl, Love Miss Selfridge! The New Range of Party Wear

Miss Selfridge have now launched their second Gossip Girl collection which features some very desirable party dresses. Gossip Girl is just one of a number of TV programs lately that are incredibly watch-able not just for their story lines but also for their style too. The programme which started back in 2007 is about a group of college kids gone wild and using its hall ways as a runway as seen through the eyes of a blogger The “Gossip Girl”. The great thing about the Gossip Girl style is that it each series marks an evolution in the style of the characters from the plaid uniform, that was so popular Anna Sui based the whole of her Target collection on it to the more sophisticated college styles.

Like all great TV programmes that have made a name for themselves for their style, Gossip Girl has its own stylist responsible for carefully crafting and developing the individual style of each of its characters. Costume stylist for Gossip Girl, Eric Daman assisted on Sex and the City before moving on to his current role.

The main character of the show Blair Waldorf is played by Leighton Meister. She is a lover of polished looks and expensive clothes. Blair gives a nod to Hollywood glamour but still keeps the look contemporary. Serena has a much more relaxed boho or hippy style. Eric Daman has a mantra when it comes to style which  “to admire, attire — and be inspired”. He advises that ladies can develop their own style by looking for inspiration in what they admire. With so many girls admiring the Gossip Girl Style, it is likely that many will be using it as inspiration for their own personal style.

The < a href="http://tidd.ly/92eb9c8b" rel="nofollow" title="gossip girl party dresses by miss selfridge">Miss Selfridge Gossip Girl collection is small but perfectly formed  and contains four very desirable party dresses or party outfits. Each dress has its own unique style like the characters in the programme with long party dresses, shorter styles and a jumpsuit., All of which would be perfect to wear to a Christmas party when teamed with a great pair of heels or glamorous ankle boots. In black and a sophisticated animal print all of the dresses are perfect for the evening with interesting details like open backs, ruffles and embellishment making them really unique and eye catching.

This short Gossip Girl Embellished Dress a great alternative to the LBD or little black dress. The chiffon sleeves are really elegant and make it great for the autumn and winter and the jewel embellishment draws attention to the shoulders. It has a vintage style to it and a beautiful scoop back and tie neck.

This Gossip Girl black cape maxi dress is simple but incredibly sexy with a scoop cut out back and high slit at the front. It is definitely a dress that will turn heads and would look great with one amazing statement accessory.

This Gossip Girl Beaded Jumpsuit combines a sophisticated style of jumpsuit with gold beading for a party outfit that is perfect for dancing the night away. A pair of metallic heels or clutch would work particularly well with this look.
