LIVE – HEAL – FEEL – SHARE – ACT today!
You’ve gotten the invitation for your friends’ wedding, happily circled the date on your calendar and started shopping for their gift, when all of a sudden it hits you – what are you supposed to wear? The etiquette for proper wedding guest attire can vary greatly depending on the style of the wedding. You’ll have to become a little bit of a detective but fear not. There are clues everywhere.
Start off with the invitation. Is it in flowing engraved black script on a heavy cream paper with formal language? Odds are the wedding will be similarly formal. Does it cheekily ask you to come to see them get hitched? Wedding guests should look for a nice casual outfit. And of course, it may tell you directly on the invitation – black tie, casual attire, etc.
Think about where the wedding is set – if it’s outdoors avoid anything that will get caught in the wind – you won’t want a battle of wills between the wind and your modesty! Also, avoid high heeled shoes that will sink in the sand or in the grass. If it’s in a hot location avoid the suit and go for a breezy dress to help you keep your cool. Indoors at the country club or fancy restaurant? Make your outfit slightly more tailored and dressy.
- A fun floral dress.
- A skirt and a sweater set with slingback shoes. (H & M has some surprisingly affordable and stylish skirts right now that will work for a daytime wedding).
- A light-colored suit – try to stay away from the black, navy, or anything that looks like you’re going to the office.
- A beautiful hat that coordinates with your outfit.
- In the summertime, a light-colored suit, especially linen or seersucker.
- Winter weddings call for warmer clothing, including wool suits, a navy blazer with charcoal pants, and perhaps a sweater and tie underneath a blazer.
- A dress shirt, tie and dress pants is acceptable, but dress it up with a blazer if you can.
- If the invitation is formal, wear a dark suit. Tuxedos are not appropriate before 6 pm.
- Dress as you would if you were going out to the theater or to dinner.
- A cocktail dress – nothing too sexy but something fun to dance in. Black is fine.
- A dressy suit or a cocktail suit.
- Wear darker colors and look for something sophisticated.
- Avoid beads or sequins unless the invitation specifically says black tie.
- A dark suit is always appropriate.
- If the invitation says casual or semi-formal, you can wear a blazer and slacks with a nice tie.
- A cocktail dress, perhaps to the floor.
- If you have a tuxedo, or just like wearing one, by all means, do so.
- Otherwise, wear a dark suit. Dress as formally as you can.
- A formal dress, usually to the floor.
- Bring out those beaded purses, fancy wraps, and formal jewelry that’s been waiting for an occasion such as this.
- Black tie weddings almost always involve dancing, so don’t wear anything too constricting.
- A tuxedo is the only appropriate thing to wear. If it says creative black tie, he should still wear a tuxedo, perhaps with a black shirt or collarless white shirt.
- White. (This rule has relaxed some, and you can get away with wearing a printed dress with a white background and some cream colored clothing. Just be careful not to upstage the bride.)
- Black to a daytime wedding
- Anything too sexy or revealing
- Anything torn, with holes, stained, too big or too small for you!
- Anything sleeveless or strapless to a religious wedding. Bring a wrap to cover your shoulders.
Let Quatty Wot guide you through the fashion tips.
Wedding season is just around the corner. Right? Oh, yes, it is girls. So instead of the usual last-minute panic purchase that only results in buying that break-the-budget bad dress that you don’t end up wearing anyway, follow these few tried-and-true tips and let that inner “It” girl out. You just might end up on this wedding season’s best-dressed guest list!
Keep it Clean
For starters, a wedding is not a nightclub. So please, don’t go looking for the skimpiest, scantiest dress out there. OK? Save that for Halloween. And remember, if you start looking for that perfect dress or two now, you can better position yourself for purchasing during a sale or after markdowns. Every retailer from Ann Taylor to J.Crew does promos all the time. Just check their websites every few days or get on their sale alert email list to get clued in.
Location, Location, Location
Next, remember that a wedding is not a wedding is a wedding. What you wear to a wedding is determined by several factors: time of day, type of service, and location – not just the setting, as in a church or outdoors, but also geographical location. If you live in Los Angeles and the wedding is in Seattle, then the Seattle ROS (Rules of Style), which are all about blending of the classics and individualism, apply. So, instead of wearing that pastel floor-length, floral-print halter, with a big floppy straw hat, to that wedding in your neck of the woods, you’d wear a Diane Von Furstenberg tea-length or a little number from an emerging “event dress” designer at your favorite boutique.
The Bling Thing
So what about shoes and accessories? Those depend on several factors also. If the wedding is out on a rolling lawn, then please don’t wear stilettos that will sink into the ground. Wear a stack heel or wedge. Again, a wedding is not a nightclub. Keep the jewelry under control. If you wear a statement necklace, then pair with stud earrings. If you’re all about the cuffs and bangles, a medium-sized hoop earring in the same metal. When in doubt? Pearl or diamond studs and nothing else!
Leave the Granny Garb at Home
Oh, and please. How many times have I worked with clients who say, “Great, then I can wear my black cardigan over the dress if it gets cold or the reception is in air conditioning.” No! Please, no cardigans! Either a pashmina or a pashmina dimension wrap works, or a little linen, silk, or sateen jacket. Promise me, please – no cardigan. It looks terrible, ruins the silhouette of the dress, and if you’re single, trust me, you’re going to stay that way.
No Pity Party Here
Weddings are a traditional ceremony so it’s a good idea to err on the side of appropriateness. That means doing the right thing under the conditions you’re in. Which means when it comes to what to wear, what to wear includes how you wear your manners and behavior. If you’re over 30, don’t drink so much champagne that you throw up at the reception, or cry because you’re still a bridesmaid and not a bride, or tell everyone that you’d be married too by now but that no-good-loser boyfriend left you for the girl in the pretty lilac linen, strapless dress that he met at a wedding last season!
Also, wear what’s age-appropriate. And that means, again, if you’re over 40, don’t dress like you’re one foot in the grave and the other foot at a quilting bee. You don’t have to look too forward, but you can and should look like what you are — a woman.
And what about wearing black? It’s the most asked question I get these days and it’s still being debated. But I say “yes” as long as the wedding is after 5:00 pm. And again, as long as the dress is appropriate, as in nothing Elvira and nothing long. Think Audrey in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” Classic and simple.
If you’re in your 20’s: Wear a floral print or yummy bright color in fabrics that range from silk to linen to chiffon. Make sure the dress is somewhat form-fitting; it can be strapless or a single shoulder, and it should accentuate your waist. Over-the-knee length is fine, but not too much. Remember, we’re going to see longer lengths this season, which will be fab! Wear fun jewelry, and a classic pointy-toe pump. If you’re on the lawn, a stack-heeled sling back.
If you’re in your 30’s: Wear a soft solid color in say light coral or lilac, or cream in either linen or a light rayon or silk. Again, make sure the dress is somewhat form-fitting, it can be strapless or a single shoulder – cap sleeve is gorgeous – and also remember, accentuate your waist. “No” to over-the-knee length. Wear classic jewelry like pearls or a wide snake chain with stud earrings and a fab cocktail ring. Shoes can be a strappy sandal with a stiletto or stacked heel.
If you’re in your 40’s: Wear a classic solid color like tan or blue or light gray. The silhouette can be a two-piece suit, a shift dress with jacket, a full-skirt dress with fitted waist and jacket. The dress or suit should always be below the knee. Wrap dresses are perfect! Wear statement jewelry (this can be a costume). Shoes should be very unique, such as embroidered pumps or metallic strappy sandals as high as you want.
If you’re in your 50’s: Wear a shift dress that has a bit of a lower neckline. Make use of the few extra pounds age has given you! Fabric should be elegant. a light brocade of embellished silk that has a small pattern. Silhouette should be a shift only, paired with a solid-colored, short-waist, tailored jacket in linen or sateen. Wear as much jewelry as you want! I like mixing classic with costume. But just in one place, please. Neck, or arms, or ear lobes! Not all! Shoes can be an elegant stiletto open-toe pump. Yes!
If you’re in your 60’s: Suit, suit, suit. Preferably tuxedo style in a great summer-weight fabric! Either in a solid color of tan, beige, or cream, or very subtle pinstripe. Accent with a floral scarf. Please no moo-moo’s or silk pants and matching moo-moo top! Jewelry should be classic and expensive, such as multi-strand pearls or gem pendants. Shoes should be an elegant, strappy sandal or open-toe sling-back! Preferably designer. Right?
If you’re in your 70’s: You can wear whatever you want. Absolutely. You’ve earned it!
And don’t forget, no matter what age, your handbag should be small and only carry the essentials, which do not include the bathroom sink.

When it comes to your Prom there are numerous things you have to take into consideration. You will be going into your final year at school and looking towards the day when, as some people say, you ‘come of age.’ This is the time where you can be completely over the top and glamorous, whereas you are probably seen by your fellow peers day in day out in your school uniform. Your prom dress is going to be one of the most important outfit choices of your life, just like your wedding dress choice. We have put together a host of styles for you to look at and decide which prom style would look the best for this very important event. Once you have the dress down the rest will just fall into place…especially the choice of date!
Ruffled Bottom Prom Dress
The ruffled bottom prom dress is ideal for girls that are bottom-heavy as this design actually disguises it rather than highlighting the area. The smaller top showcases a smaller waist so this design is perfect for classic pear shapes. This style of dress will create killer curves and make the boys melt as you sashay by and the design of the dress will make you feel like a princess, if only for the night!
Pink To Make The Boys Wink
Pink prom dresses are the number one trend for next season, from candy to baby to raspberry, the only color to be seen in is pink. This is for hardcore girls only, as pink can be a real color statement and wouldn’t look anything less than fabulous with a splash of diamonds a slick of matching lip-gloss.
Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend
Diamonds can take a dress from gorgeous to ultra-fabulous, from embellishments on the waistband, to crystals scattered around the edge of the hem, the only way to look at your prom is to glisten! These dresses use diamante crystals to highlight the best areas of the dress, whether that be cut-out sections at the back, or the tiny waistline in an empire-cut dress, or simply around the top of the sweetheart neckline design of the dress.
Some Like It Short
Short prom dresses are a fantastic alternative to long floor-length gowns and these are perfect for girls that are usually the more casual dresser. Plus if money is a consideration the shorter dress will always have more chance to be worn again, especially on a night out with the girls once you hit college. We especially like the ladybug design above as a dress like this can say a lot about your character and this sort of dress will certainly be a talking point on the night. If you have fabulous legs then show them off in a shorter prom dress style.
Every girl dreams of looking like a princess and your prom night are the perfect occasion to dress like one. These dresses are perfect to capture that princess quality with their sorbet coloured satin designs and carefully placed crystals. Halterneck dresses are set to be huge for next season, creating Marylin Monroe curves at the closing of a zip. The netting and taffeta bottom again hides the bottom half of the figure so ideal for pear shapes.
It’s All In The Pattern
Colorful and strong patterns are what can make you stand out at your prom or stand against the wall. Prom dresses like these designs require a heap of confidence and some fabulous heels. Patterns can work well in a room full of solid colors and the only way to work this look is to get a spray tan beforehand to make sure the vibrant colors do not wash you out. If you have paler skin then I would recommend you stick to lighter, fresher block colors and use accessories like handbags and shoes to really let the color play.
