Period Dresses

Choose a dress with meaning, with an inspiration that can be felt immediately. Are you someone who was inspired by the dresses in the 1960's? You can choose or get a similar dress stitched. In the 1960's, shoulder pads and the famous Jackie Kennedy pillbox hat were trending. If it's a late evening wedding, you can team up a formal shirt and knee-length skirt as your dress. You can also try music inspired clothing depending on particular music, and the era in which it was a trend.

Most of us receive invitations beforehand to help us decide our attire for the wedding, but sometimes we don't. For such times, always keep a simple black, red, white and violet dress ready.

Accessories to Complement Wedding Guest Dresses

Seldom should you settle down for flats, with your dress. Always opt for heels, up to about 4 inches. Anything more than that for a wedding, and you almost have a wardrobe malfunction. Don't make your footwear too frilly; buy something that is elegant. Due to certain circumstances, if you have to wear flats, choose gladiators.
pink heart shaped handbag
Carry a small compact handbag with just one compartment, or else you'll have to invest a lot of your time taking care of it. Clutches are a safe bet. They will never, ever let you down. Bold colors are in this season, but carry them only till summer. In winters, go back to the basics with black, gray, white, and the occasional beige.

Opt for bright, yet delicate jewelry. Bold jewelry in bright colors is never meant for a wedding. However, your first choice should always be pearls. They never go out of fashion! Statement neck pieces, arm cuffs, big statement rings are in trends this year. You have to be very careful with the jewelry you choose. If you wear big dangling earrings, avoid a necklace. Space it out!
These ideas relating to wedding guest dresses will make sure your attire is best-suited for weddings. This year is the year of colors; make good use of them. Your attire has to be fresh, and novel. If you have time, try styling your own dress.
