The trendiest designs for the most stylish
Rising temperatures mean one thing: the wedding season is here! So if your loved ones have invited you to attend a special celebration and you’re looking for fashion inspirations, you’re in the right place. Check out our guide to the most glamorous models that will work for a grand reception at the beach, cocktail party, small dinner with your friends and family as well as an outdoor wedding in the countryside.
Cocktail attire is one of the most popular dress codes chosen by future newlyweds.
It’s also the favorite of wedding guests, who from season to season pay more attention not only to being comfortable, but also to expressing their individual, unique style. The cocktail dress code gives us a lot of room to experiment with forms, because although we still choose elegant and sophisticated designs, we’re not limited by the strictly defined length of the dresses – like in the case of black-tie events.
What designs should you choose to become the best dressed guest? For women who love mini dresses, we would recommend styles in a variety of colors from Zimmermann and silk garments from The Mannei. Try pairing your favorite model with iconic pumps from Jimmy Choo and jewelry from Saint Laurent's portfolio to create a look that will make an unforgettable impression. If not the mini, then maybe you’d like to try the cocktail staple – the midi dress? The perfect choice would be the satin and organza dress from Ferragamo, the silvery design from Maison Margiela decorated with a bow or a minimalistic cut from Dries Van Noten. Find a matching pair of elegant shoes from Saint Laurent or Dolce & Gabbana, a handbag from Jimmy Choo, complete it with Bottega Veneta earrings – et voilà!
The seaside vibe
Airy fabrics, vibrant colors, prints and weightless ruffles are four of the most important features of designs perfect for beach receptions. This season abounds with possible options, so in order to help you choose, we’ve selected the most interesting styles coveted by world influencers, stylists and demanding trendsetters alike.
Our number one style is floral dresses from Dries Van Noten, Zimmermann and Dolce & Gabbana. These designs catch the eye not only with their colors, but also with spectacular details like romantic ruffles, puff sleeves and decorative ribbons. Ferragamo offers a model with a stunning gradient of sunset colors. It’s also slimming because of its draped silhouette and this spring’s trend, a sash. Whichever design you choose in the end, don’t forget about accessories – the final touch of any look. Go for spectacular platform sandals from Saint Laurent or Jimmy Choo, extravagant jewelry by Zimmermann and wear a bag from Jacquemus’ collections on your shoulder.
A dinner with loved ones
An intimate dinner with loved ones is as popular to celebrate weddings as cocktail parties and lavish beach parties. The dress code, although comfortable, takes a completely different form, as we opt for casual and less majestic cuts in place of ceremonial and often grandiose silhouettes.
What to wear to look spectacular and not make the whole outfit too formal at the same time?
At such intimate weddings, women's suits that break the seriousness with eye-catching colours are strongly appreciated. Take a look at suggestions from Alexander McQueen, Chloé and Stella McCartney. Would you choose this season's hottest cobalt, piercing pink, or the equally coveted lime green? Any of them will make a huge impression, especially when paired with a Bottega Veneta satin top and chic Burberry ballet flats - it’s a formula for a look worthy of fashion's biggest icon. While this set alone doesn't need any more competition, jewellery lovers can elevate it with a minimalist necklace from Saint Laurent or brass earrings from Ferragamo.
A grand wedding
in the countryside
Although countryside weddings are strongly associated with a cheerful and idyllic atmosphere, finding the creation elements that match the atmosphere of such a party can cause a lot of stress and tension. This is because we have to consider not only the theme of the event but also field conditions and ever-changing weather when choosing the perfect outfit.
What kinds of designs are worth selecting to ensure that functionality and striking design do not contradict each other? Dresses from Erdem, Ulla Johnson, Etro and Isabel Marant will meet your expectations. Think floral prints, iconic paisley motifs, or decorative drapes and pleats that emphasise the figure. Thanks to a large selection of these models, each of you will find a design that fits your needs as well as the temperature outside.
If you’re aiming for the ‘wow’ effect, choose a pair of stylish shoes, an eye-catching hat or amazing jewellery. Jimmy Choo's platform sandals and Sophia Webster's and Saint Laurent's coveted wedge sandals will add a few more centimetres, a wide-brimmed Jacquemus hat will keep the sun out, and earrings from Chloé or Tory Burch will complete the look with a nonchalant twist.
