Now summer’s pretty much in full swing, you are sensing that impending doom looming over you – what to wear for wedding season? The invite has been on the refrigerator for a good year and you’ve tried to push it to the back of your mind, but now the time has come, and you’re having serious wardrobe dilemmas.
It’s always that awkward balance – not upstaging the bride but also feeling glamorous for the photos. Then of course, you get family members wanting you to dress like a princess, when that might not even be your style. Weddings can be a nightmare to dress for, of course for the couple getting married but also just for the guests!
Stuck for outfit inspiration? Look no further, here’s a Rebel’s Wedding Style Guide.
The strappy jumpsuit is a flattering way of showing some skin without being seen as provocative at a family wedding. A flare leg will elongate your silhouette and a wrap front will flatter most body shapes. We love this emerald green color, but a bold electric blue could really help you make an impact and show off that goddess-like tan. Finish off the look with a statement clutch and subtle gold jewelry. For unpredictable weather-related situations, add a little edge with a biker jacket.
We can’t quite get over how feminine and flirty any outfit gets once you add a pleated midi into the mix. The movement is elegant and graceful, and with a high waist they will cinch you in and create the perfect hourglass figure. You can wear it with a figure-sculpting body for a Rebel edge or a floaty, loose blouse for a timeless look. Of course for an elegant, modern-day-Audrey-Hepburn feel, finish the look off with some classic black heels, or if you want to embrace the feminine and flirty vibe, some nude strappy sandals.
Power suits aren’t just for the office y’know! An androgynous suit teamed with a more feminine blouse, could make the dream wedding outfit. Go for a shade that will pop, and keep the rest of the color scheme simple. Though pastels are often adopted for weddings, if the dress code is a little more flexible, an emerald green or a camel colored suit are untraditional shades that you should embrace for the big day. Finish off the look with court heels for a dressy outfit from head-to-toe!
The tulle skirt brings a romantic aspect to your outfit – even when teamed with your tomboyish denim jacket. We recommend pairing your tulle skirt with a lace body, not only to play with textures but it’s a happy compromise between looking like a princess for your family and still feeling yourself. This skirt is so easy to wear on an everyday basis too, just swap your heels for sneakers and a thin knit and you’re ready for drinks with the girls or a special dinner date.
