Wedding Guest Outfit for Summer 2013

Summer is traditionally the time of weddings, strawberries and champagne, sunny days and fun filled nights. If you’ve been invited to a wedding or two over the coming months, you might be wondering what to wear. Perhaps you’ve looked in your wardrobe and it’s looking a little tired and jaded, or maybe you’d just like to treat yourself to something brand new and fashion forward to perk both you and your wardrobe up. In this article, I have selected the dress, the jacket, the bag and the shoes, all currently available at my-wardrobe.com, which will undoubtedly make you the best dressed guest around!

The Dress – Carven Red Lace Prom Dress

The Carven Red Lace Prom Dress is a red sleeveless dress with an overlay of transparent red mesh. This is evident with the sheer detail around the neckline and at the hemline. It’s a bold and beautifully coloured dress with a lightweight, twirly skirt that will really move when it’s time to dance, yet looks perfect for the day aswell, especially when teamed with a cream linen jacket (see below).

The Jacket – See by Chloé Heavy Cream Linen Jacket

Every girl needs a cream linen jacket in her wardrobe. It goes with so many things and can transform a party dress into a daywear dress with ease. This blazer style jacket from See by Chloé is made from a heavy linen fabric to keep summer chills at bay. It is a double breasted style with welt pockets and is fully lined. It will certainly help polish any day wear look and could even smarten up your workwear wardrobe too.

The Bag – Michael Michael Kors Pewter Python Antonia Clutch

I can’t think of an outfit that doesn’t go with this gorgeous pewter coloured metallic leather clutch from Michael Michael Kors. With pewter coloured hardware, the bag features five pyramid studs on the front, brand logo on the back and comes with a detachable chain shoulder strap. It also has a well organised interior, featuring a large interior pocket and six further smaller leather pockets.

The Shoes – Aperlai Paris Amerindien Python Cut Out Sandals

Oh, how I love these sandals. The heel is sexily high yet they can be worn all day thanks to the platform sole. The combination of python print and bright red leather is eye catching and the cut out detail architecturally stunning. They add perfect sophistication to any outfit and look particularly good teamed with red and shades of black and grey. Whilst I’ve chosen them to go with the lovely Carven dress, they look equally good teamed with skinny jeans and black leather trousers.

Michael Kors Silver Dress, Lulu Guinness Red Lips Clutch, Charlotte Olympia Silver Glitter Shoes

Michael Kors Silver Foil Print Dress Michael Kors Silver Foil Print Dress

Ramp up the glamour with opulent metallic evening tones. For this look, I’ve teamed the Michael Michael Kors silver body con bandage dress and Charlotte Olympia silver glitter shoes, accenting the look with the fabulously oversized Lulu Guinness red snakeskin clutch.

Michael Michael Kors Silver Foil Print BodyCon Dress

This dress is a sleeveless and stretchy body con bandage dress in a silver foil print design. The dress has a scooped neckline and falls to above the knee. I particularly like this dress as the fabric is stretch but firm, so it fits flatteringly over your curves and highlights your best bits. It fastens with a zip at the back and is also hand washable, which is more convenient than the many dry clean only dresses around at the moment.

Lulu Guinness Extra Large Red Snakeskin Lips Clutch

Lulu Guinness snakeskin clutches have been around for a while now. They come out each year in different materials, colours and textures but the snakeskin ones are the most enduring. This one is different though – it’s extra large, and is 32cm wide – double the size of the original, and great for girls who need to carry a few more things around with them on a night out.

I’ve chosen the bag to go with this look, because the silver colour of the dress and shoes make the bag really stand out for a head turning finish.

Glitter shoes are de rigeur for an glamorous evening ensemble, and nobody does them better than Charlotte Olympia.  These beauties, with their high glitter covered stiletto heels and undershot glitter covered platform sole will certainly add sparkle to any evening ensemble.

The heels are staggeringly high, measuring a full 6″, but their height is partially mitigated by the 1.2″ platform sole.

Markus Lupfer Peplum Dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs Sylvie Bag, Michael Kors Bethany Courts

Markus Lupfer Black Peplum Dress Markus Lupfer Black Peplum Dress

Black and gold are great colours to team together for nights out – the slimming properties of black are legendary and gold adds just the right amount of opulence, which is perfect for an evening look.

Markus Lupfer Black Peplum Dress

The dress I’ve chosen for this look is this sexy little black peplum dress by Markus Lupfer. It’s a short dress, falling to about mid thigh and it’s made from a stretchy black jersey fabric which features sequin embellishment to the front and peplum and a striking, exposed, silver tone back zip fastening.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Sylvie Tote Bag Marc by Marc Jacobs Sylvie Tote Bag

The bag I’ve chosen is the Marc by Marc Jacobs Silvie Tote bag, which is a compact handbag made from smooth black leather, and featuring a striking gold coloured “Marc by Marc Jacobs New York” brand plaque on the front. Although compact and suited to evening (in addition to day) use, this bag is really well organised. It has two zipped compartments, a press stud fastening compartment in the centre and three interior pockets, one of which is zip fastening. It also has the flexibility of two top handles and a separate detachable cross body strap.

The look is completed with shoes which perfectly echo the black and gold tones seen in the bag. The Michael Kors Bethany Courts area peep toe style in black suede, which feature gold piping around the inside edge of the upper and a matching shiny gold tone stiletto heel. The shoes also have a suede covered exposed platform sole for that all important extra height, and the heels measure a towering 4.5″.
