Figuring out what to wear can be overwhelming – especially when it comes to non-traditional celebrations. Whether you’re heading out to the countryside or staying in the city, scroll down for our advice on how to look the part, whatever the style of the nuptials.
When you’re invited to attend a wedding in the city, you might as well face facts: you’re going to have to pull out all the stops. Men should steer clear of anything that could also be worn to the office – a modern classic or double-breasted suit with sharp lapels is perfect for a more formal ceremony. Women can also win with the tailored approach: opt for a bold jumpsuit or a structured dress, and pair with minimal accessories for a sophisticated touch.
Since these type of affairs usually take place after 6pm, you’ll need to dress party-appropriate. Sharp tailoring woven with a degree of stretch is a must for men, and for those who usually find themselves on the dancefloor, a white dress shirt disguises perspiration better than other colours. Women can be as daring as they want to be without upstaging the bride (just remember to avoid white). Find yourself a high-impact dress in a striking silhouette and combine with statement accessories.
You can guess that at a country wedding there might be a fair amount of time spent in the open air, so footwear should be stylish but outdoor-appropriate. Men should opt for a fresh summer suit in a classic silhouette, in true gentlemanly fashion. Women are advised to go for a classic dress, like the one below, or a similar stunning style. We advise that both sexes take along a lightweight cover-up in case the weather takes a turn for the worse.
