28 Seriously Knockout Wedding-Guest Dresses For Spring
Whenever I receive a save the date for a wedding, you better believe my sole mission is earning the title of best-dressed guest. Aggressive? Slightly. But, hey! I work in fashion, can you blame me? With a healthy appetite for occasionwear, I've come to discover a handful of brands that are now my go-tos for wedding-guest style, particularly when the aim is to make a statement, be it via an unexpected silhouette, bright color, or eye-catching print.
For Spring 2020, dress trends run the gamut from voluminous sleeves to '80s-inspired minidresses and splashy floral prints. These all make for a fresh and fashion-forward wedding-guest moment this season, whether you're into midi lengths, tiered skirts, or above-the-knee silhouettes. Another showstopping approach? Elegant fabrics like sequins, satin, and tulle (great for a black-tie wedding!) or a vibrant color to stand out from more muted tones; sky blue, lilac, and hot pink are a few of my in-season favorites.
Design details are another key thing to hone in on when it comes to a showstopping wedding-guest dress, and they don't have to be extreme in every case. A sheer sleeve here, a tasteful cutout there. Perhaps a peplum at the waist to define your shape? An asymmetrical neckline or open back always turns heads while flutter sleeves or a fluted hem is fittingly romantic.
While bold shapes, patterns, and colors are a surefire way to stand out as a wedding guest, they're not the only tactics worth applying. When it comes down to it, the fit is truly the secret to a "wow" moment, whether you opt for a classic silhouette in a less-expected shade or give a nuanced silhouette a try in a subtle hue like navy or black.
