Fashion | Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas From The Highstreet


Wedding season is upon us! Which for us ladies can mean scary times ahead for our bank balances...


With the possibility of lots of Facebook tags coming our way after these events, the pressure can feel high to make sure we have a different outfit for each occasion. 

After spending too much money myself in the past on dresses that were only really fit for very formal events like weddings, I've come to realise that the best practise for picking a wedding guest outfit is to choose something that's classy enough to be accessorised into formal wear, but that's also fit for less formal attire too. Cos the last thing you need in your wardrobe is an army of overly formal pieces, clogging up space and filling you with guilt about their price tags!

That's why for today's post I wanted to share with you a high street dress from Topshop which I've accessoried up for a classy wedding guest attire, plus some other high street options which I think would be perfect wedding guest outfits for this Summer. Hope you like :)

















Get the look:

Striped Dress: £55 Topshop
Red Bow Court Heels: £39 Miss Selfridge (Sold out - try Ebay!)

I love what a great pair of heels can do for an outfit! I think the bright red colour from these Miss Selfridge beauties matched with the monochrome dress really add that extra something special to the outfit. If I was styling it for a less formal occasion, I would have opted for some plain black heels and would have ditched the hat - simple! 

Other HighStreet Wedding Guest Outfit Ideas


As promised, here are some other high street buys which I think you could dress up for a wedding and also make use of for other more casual nights out. The bank balance is saved!
