The perfect accessories to provide the finishing touch to your super-stylish wedding outfit
As a guest at an upcoming wedding, much thought is often put into what you’ll wear. Should you choose a dress, or seperates? And what colour palette is best? The pressure to find a ‘wow’ outfit often results in leaving shopping until the very last minute and subsequently, no thoughts whatsoever as to those all-important accessories.
From the bag that pairs perfectly to the jewellery that will lift your dress from drab to fab, or even the shoes that look gorgeous but are still comfortable, it’s so important to remember those finishing touches when putting an outfit together. Those who say ‘It’s the little things that really make an outfit’ know what they’re talking about – especially when it comes to wedding guest accessories!
So what is it you’ll need to turn everyone’s head this year? If your outfit is plain – we say go all out! Add a cute or quirky clutch, some seriously noticeable heels and statement jewellery. If you’ve chosen a patterned outfit, keep things more simple. Choose one colour and co-ordinate your accessories so that they match perfectly, that way the look won’t be too ‘busy’. If you’re unsure, nude heels are a flattering choice and look good with absolutely everything (bonus: they’ll lengthen your legs!)
But don’t forget that classic wedding guest accessory – the hat! An important choice for any guest, this can make or break any look. If your style is bold and brave, embrace it and try a stand-out hat or fascinator in a stunning colour. If you prefer to stick to a more understated look, there are plenty of discreet options that you’ll feel comfortable with.
So don’t leave it until the last-minute this time – start shopping our edit of the best wedding guest accessories now, and you’ll look great at those upcoming nuptials…
