Dressing for weddings is not as difficult as many make it out to be. The real challenge lies in shopping for pieces that you can wear again. We've all been there. You get invited to a big wedding and you shop for an elaborate gown that fits the theme perfectly. The only one problem is that it will look out of place on any other occasion. Instead of blowing your budget on one-time wear dresses, invest in versatile pieces that you can wear for many weddings to come. Here are some chic styles that you'll be able to use more than once.

A slip dress

Salvatore Ferragamo Spring - Summer 2019

Slip dresses are back in style! Sport this trendy and carefree design in beach and garden weddings. To avoid looking too casual, pick one with interesting details like an asymmetrical hemline or bedazzled straps. Pair it with neutral-toned sandals and you're good to go. Aside from weddings, you can also wear slip dresses for events that call for a cocktail chic dress code. On the other hand, you can also make it more casual by layering a white tee or long-sleeved top underneath.

Fit & flare dress 

JESSICA Fall Winter 2018 Collection

The classic fit and flare silhouette is a popular choice for wedding guests outfits. It looks sophisticated without being too formal. Not to mention that it's flattering for every body type as it showcases the feminine shape like no other. You can wear this A-line piece for any other occasions ranging from an office party to a brunch with your best pals.

Classy bold print

BOSS Spring-Summer 2019

When it comes to weddings, florals and neutrals are often favoured over flashy prints but that doesn't mean you can't sport bold styles in a classy way. The key is to choose muted colours with minimal darker accents so it will still look chic rather than flamboyant. It also helps to pick higher necklines like a jewel or Sabrina for a more elegant look. Because of its polished design, after the wedding, you can even wear this fashionable number to business presentations or board meetings.


Rafe Fall Winter 2018

Not a fan of super feminine designs but would still love to rock a dress? Consider buying shirtdresses. They're easy to pull off and very comfortable to wear. For this particular style, get one in a bold colour or printed design because neutral ones tend to look a little flat. With shirtdresses, you'd be surprised how versatile dresses can be as you can easily dress them up or down. You might just end up buying another piece. 

Lacey midi dress

Ted Baker Autumn-Winter 2018

Don't you agree that midi dresses with lace details are the quintessential wedding guest outfit? They look pretty and romantic; just the right pick for the occasion. And if you're worried about looking just like everybody else, you can glam it up with a few statement earrings and killer heels. Although lace midi dresses are customarily worn for weddings, it can still work on other gatherings as compared to elaborate gowns. All you have to do is play with the accessories so you can achieve the right look for each event.
