Weddings are back in full swing and there are more autumn/winter celebrations to attend than we can count. But what do we wear now the temperatures have dropped and summer florals are no more? Read on for our fashionable picks and top tips to nailing your wedding guest look.

There’s a backlog of weddings on our calendars and it’s time to start planning our looks. As we reluctantly say goodbye to our pretty pastel-coloured dresses that saw us through summer, remaining best dressed is still top of our agenda.

Look for dark florals, long sleeves and rich fabrics like velvet and metallics that will ensure you dazzle in any weather condition. Shivering is not an option so an oversized tailored coat is elegant for those outdoor moments. The right footwear is essential for avoiding frozen toes, so swap your strappy sandals for knee-high boots or pointed-toe pumps.

If you’re looking for a more contemporary look, a high-neck jumpsuit or black tuxedo is sure to deliver style points and is a chic alternative to a dress. Jumpsuits make a statement when worn in velvet or silk, and keep your suits matching for head-to-toe glamour.

Want to stay traditional? High necks, mid-lengths and sleeves will be your best friend and don’t be afraid to layer. A metallic roll-neck can be layered under dresses and sophisticated belted coats are wedding-worthy cover-ups – glamorous and double up for the season ahead.

Looking for a more sustainable option? Rent your look from a fashion rental platform. Renting allows you to wear luxury pieces at only a fraction of the cost and means you won’t buy something you only wear once.
