Wedding style a guide for guests

Fashion Director Sorrel Kinder shares her top looks for the big day…

Beach wedding

Women
For a beach-inspired feel, go for a loose-fitting jumpsuit - not only does this versatile piece look ef-fortless with a delicate sandal in the day, but it can also be dressed up with a pair of heels for the evening celebration.

Men
A beach wedding is the perfect opportunity to play with softer tones such as creamy beige and ice blue. A tie isn’t necessary, so opt for suits in lightweight fabrics and team with loose linen shirts. Keep the outfit pulled together with suede lace-ups or leather loafers without socks.

Country wedding

Women
The Spring/Summer collections served up a stunning mix of floral prints and seventies silhouettes – look for knee-sweeping dresses to channel the trend. Add height with a wedge or platform sandal, then throw on a wide-brimmed hat and layers of bohemian jewellery.

Men
Go for a three-piece suit with a matching waistcoat – or for a subtle twist, try a slightly darker shade to add depth. Textures like tweed and fine checks work well in a countryside setting, and a leather lace-up brogue will complete the look.

City wedding

Women
Amp up your city style with tailored separates or a two-piece set – both of which have been popular on the red carpet lately. Stick to neutral hues and add bold accessories like a court or a graphic print bag for a strong, structured finish.

Men
Wear a sharp, slim-fitting suit in inky blue or stone grey. Add some edge with a vibrant tie or keep things minimal in tonal shades. Alternatively, create a deconstructed effect by mixing staple pieces – just ensure your jacket and trousers are in the same colour palette.

Winter wedding

Women
To protect against the cold, choose a mid-length skit. It’s a key trend for both Spring/Summer and Au-tumn/Winter so it’s here to stay! Layer with a faux fur scarf or add shape by belting a coat-dress.

Men
Wear a suit with a heavier fabric like wool and invest in a great tailored coat to layer on top. Fine cashmere under your jacket can also add polish to a winter ensemble.

Celebrity wedding

Women
For refined elegance, pair a simple cocktail dress with heels and accessorise with an embellished box clutch or a pair of statement earrings.

Men
A classic black tux – it's all about attention to detail with the right silver cufflinks and a simple leather shoe. Finish off with a neat bow tie fastened by hand – it does make a difference!
