Dress your best as a wedding guest

June 25, 2002

Preoccupied about not being the one disgraceful guest to outdo the bride when it comes to fashion stakes at a wedding? Stuck for something to wear on the big day that doesn?t compromise your style (or leave you bankrupt!)? Then read on.So many variables: you want to look good but not too good, you want to attract male attention, but not steal the groom. Then there is the weather and location to consider. Is the wedding in the city or in the country? Is it a daytime affair or an evening soiree? And of course you have to take your own style and dress sense into account. If you spend most of your week clad in tailored Witchery black pants with a fitted business shirt you are probably not going to want to slip into a floral shift dress! And you?ll despise having to fork out your hard-earned cash on something you?re only going to wear once! Even though you love that old uni friend who?s walking down the aisle, you don?t love her enough to throw $400 down the toilet. Our advice? Purchase

piece and that?s it! Mix this with your existing wardrobe and you will be able to create a great new look. Likewise, a pretty, lightweight coat that you can wear all day takes the pressure off the outfit underneath. Finally, and most importantly for you working girls, a well-cut suit is still one of the easiest and most stylish options around. Just add a little something to it to take it away from the office for great wedding guest style.
