Have you been invited to a wedding and don’t know what to wear? This is a common dilemma that nearly every woman faces. Feminine suits are the easiest outfit to put together, especially if you are in a hurry or don’t know what to wear. Also, make sure the outfits are comfortable, fashionable, and trendy.
Coco Chanel had once said “a girl should be two things: classy and fabulous”. Suits make a girl or woman look absolutely elegant, sophisticated, and classy.
A woman’s suit is an outfit, which has a skirt/trouser, blouse, coat, and a beautiful pair of shoes. It is different from regular office attire, as wedding suits or party suits are more dressy, and very elegant. They go well on any body type, weight, and height. Except the bride, any one else can wear it. Although, they are mostly preferred by the groom or bride’s mother, this attire can be worn by anyone for winter, summer and fall weddings. Various top of the line designers have started showcasing wedding suits in many fashion shows because these suits are easy to wear and maintain. There are three types of suits that can be worn for weddings – pant, skirt, and dress suit.
Feminine suits are classy, elegant, and feminine in every way. Simple yet posh, these suits are a must have in every woman’s wardrobe.
You can wear a suit for a day wedding as well as night wedding; all you have to do is choose the best accessories to go with your suit. The most unique thing about wedding suits is that they look chic, formal, and easy to carry off.
Dress suits are also available in various colors, designs, and fabrics. An A-line dress paired with a nice and crisp coat, hat, shoes and a nice clutch is an amazing outfit to wear to a wedding. It looks formal yet trendy. For a night wedding, wear dresses in colors like bottle green, ink blue, red or maroon with a nice chic black jacket.
Look for a skirt or a pair of trousers in a color that complements the color of the blouse. You can go in for materials like linen, wool or silk. You could also try heavier materials like corduroy or charmeuse, if the weather permits.
For a wedding at night, you could get a nice pair of light-colored trousers in raw silk and pair it up with a dark-colored blouse and some jewelry.
Look for a blouse, preferably a light-colored for a day wedding and a dark-colored one for a night wedding. Your blouse should be in a rich material like satin, silk or cashmere.
Blouses could be bejeweled with rhinestones, sequins, or even some delicate embroidery (but not completely covered with sequins and stones). For a night wedding, you could wear a blouse that is dark in color with a ruffled front.
A coat, blazer or jacket is a must to complete your suit. Apart from adding a touch of grace and style, they look fabulous and also offer protection from the sun (if the wedding is outdoors) and cold (in the winter). For a night wedding, you could carry a coat or jacket that has a touch of shine and sequins to it.
Proper hats, scarves and purses are very essential when it comes to completing your ensemble. Your makeup should be simple, elegant, classy and done very neatly. You can have your hair down or in a bun.
Close-toed shoes, pumps and strapped stilettos are good to go. Your shoes should complement your accessories.
For a night wedding, lose the hat and scarf, put your hair in a bun, wear a pair of earrings (studs or dangles – your choice) and a pair of very eye-catching shoes.
What Not to Wear
~ Do not wear blouses that are transparent and show too much cleavage.
~ Your skirt should not be too short, it should be knee length or longer.
~ Dinner jackets are a complete no-no.
~ Do not wear leggings. Opaque tights or a pantyhose is the best choice.
~ Do not wear a completely black suit. If you are hell-bent on wearing black, then you can team it up with a blouse in pastel shades.
~ Do not wear a suit for a black-tie wedding.
Without realizing it, most women have what it takes to put together a suit right there in their wardrobe. All it takes is a good eye and patience to look through your wardrobe to fish out the perfect outfit. You can always reuse the suit at another occasion like a get-together, formal dinner, luncheon or just at a nice Sunday brunch.
