WEDDING GUEST OUTFIT DRESSES | SILK, CHIC & CLASSY STYLES FOR SUMMER 2022 | *GET READY - GUEST EDITION*



Get wedding ready (*Guest edition)

Welcome back y'all, 

I am so ready to glam up and get ready for wedding season - yes you heard right (guest edition - dresses suitable for weddings and other social engagements). I have collated four different styles and handpicked my outfits from my one and only, favourite fashion online boutique - stocking the latest and trendiest fashionable pieces (to suit all shapes and sizes - small, medium and large). Don't forget it's not about trying to squeeze into the smallest size...it's about how you style and wear the overall outfit. 

This online shopping boutique is perfect for your last minute shopping (because shipping is swift and convenient). I usually source all of my go-to outfits at this online boutique because I believe their pieces are truly comfortable, trendy and affordable. If you're on a budget and can't afford to stretch your wallet with premium brands on the market, there are always 'dupes' or styles that are similar to what you see on New York Fashion Week. 

So let's talk about weddings. Whether you're single, married or not really looking to mingle - and simply focusing on yourself - it's an amazing excuse to dress up, put your face on and show the world what you're all about (and also supporting your best bud's wedding of course). Experiment with different styles. Wear outfits you hesitate to wear. Try a new style. Accessorise more. Research what's hot...and what's not! 

Without further adieu, I hope you find some inspiration somewhere in these #OOTD's.

Mocha Cuppa vibes

Fall in love with silk-based dresses again because let me tell ya - they're back on the fashion bandwagon. I am wearing the Mocha Satin Ruched Split Strappy Bodycon Midi Dress in a size 6. It's definitely true to size and comes with a back zipper allowing easy access. This outfit features ruched detailing, a side split design and sexy spaghetti straps. It comes in a bodycon fit and satin material which feels very comfortable - and quite a neutral piece to have in your wardrobe. This dress definitely reminds me of the good old classic type - and you can easily dress it up (with some nice heels) or rock it casual style - by placing a denim jacket over the dress, paired with your favourite sneakers. 

Overall this is a classic dress that speaks simplicity and chic. Pair it with your black strappy heels and a glitzy evening clutch bag to complete the look, voila - and have a good night. 


Parisian Girl 

I get a sense of Parisian vibes when I look at this White & Black Polka Dot Mesh Long Sleeve Ruched Bodysuit. It's the perfect bodysuit and goes well with any bottoms (since it's an easy to style garment), whether you want to pair it with black tights, jeans or even a midi skirt. Anything goes well with it. The mesh material is very breathable to wear all day long and I can easily wear this all day long. I am wearing it in size 6 - true to size - so definitely get your actual size when choosing this piece. Another thing about bodysuits is that you can easily wear it flawlessly, because the bottom gets hidden when you pair it with a bottom etc. 

Call it a sassy item - if you're after a cute Parisian look. It comes  with a cinched high waist style and instead of wearing a dress to the wedding ceremony, you can easily get away with a day look. So what are you waiting for girl - get your loop earrings, heels and favourite bag to complete this beautiful look. 


Classic & Sophisticated

This classic, gorgeous Black One Shoulder Belted Satin Mini Dress is one garment to invest in. It's great for black and tie events because it's classy and sophisticated looking. When paired with black shiny heels, it's the perfect match. I love the one-shoulder style because you can never get tired of this look - it gives your overall outfit (a unique style) and a great excuse to show off your shoulders. Furthermore the dress comes with a black mid-waist ribbon allowing you to cinch off at the waist, giving you a glamorous overall look.  

I really love this classic dress look because if its simplicity - and oh so comfortable to rock at the wedding reception. The material feels incredibly soft and luxurious - making it perfect for a must-have item! 


Take me back to the dance floor

Are we ready to take on the dance floor? This Emerald Sequin Halter Neck Bodycon dress is super sleek, sexy and definitely an eye-catcher. I was actually surprised by the brilliant quality and fit with this dress. It's a beautiful piece especially with the green, shiny sequins - you'll absolutely shine on the dance floor no doubt. 

This dress is super easy to wear, it comes with no zip so it's a matter of pulling the dress over yourself. So I would recommend you to get true to your size or even one size up. The sequins are stunning and I love every detail from bottom to up. As for the top piece (it comes with  back end string where you would simply just tie according to your best fit and wear. This is my first type of sequin dress and already I am in love with it!

So there you have it - my top wedding guest outfit picks for 2022.
