The New Rules
Dressing for a wedding used to be fool-proof: a smart dress, a cover up and heels. Now, weddings come in all shapes and sizes and the hunt for the perfect outfit can be a minefield. Never fear; we’ve created a handy guide to the rules of wedding-guest dressing in 2018. So, from city nuptials to beach ‘I Dos’, you’ll be perfectly dressed for the occasion – wherever in the world it may be.
The Wedding Abroad
Lightweight, floaty fabrics like silk are your beach-wedding saviours. Channel a sunny vibe with bright hues, relaxed shapes and vibrant prints – oh, and all that sand is the perfect excuse to ditch the stilettos, too. Try some sparkly flats and co-ordinate with jewellery that’ll catch the sun.

The City Wedding
A city wedding is the perfect excuse to experiment with a fashion-forward look – think bright colours, modern shapes and sleek tailoring. Let your killer heels and statement earrings have their time in the spotlight, too.

The Country Wedding
With a more rustic vibe, ace the country-wedding dress code with relaxed silhouettes and romantic colours. Everything from feminine floral prints to tailored separates are suitable, but if you’re going for a heel, make it chunky (so you don’t sink into the grass)

The Traditional Wedding
The most sophisticated of all: the traditional wedding. Keep things classic with higher necklines, longer hems and covered shoulders. You can still have fun with accessories – embellished bags, statement earrings and stiletto heels – and it’s the perfect time to wear a hat or fascinator.
