Ah, the year 2023. The boom year of wedding events. Well, I am guessing you already got invites lining up your front door, right? If that is the case, you are probably racking your brain for some latest dress trends. I know you would not want to run from one shop to another aimlessly to find your perfect little dress.
Setting some time to go shopping, spend hours after hours in the boutique. Only to find that your efforts are in vain because you could not find the right dress, the dress that speaks for you. Yes, ladies, I know that feeling. Ain’t nobody got time for that. Since I already forecasted this would happen, I made a list that includes the latest dress trends. So you can have some ideas for your perfect dress. Do not worry, they already cover all year around trends and are great for all seasons. So, let us get right to it, shall we?
1) Two-Piece Dress Trends for Wedding? Why Not?
The usual misjudgment people have for two-piece dresses is that it is not suitable for such formal events as weddings. “Two-piece dresses? Are you for real? We are not going to some cocktail party.” Now, hold your horses, darling. Two-piece dresses can be as elegant, if not better for formal settings. That is if you did a great job in mixing and matching.
In addition, two-piece dresses are known for their practicality. You don’t have to worry about it creeping up your body. You can dance all night long with ease and comfort. Besides, you can even use them separately after the event. How convenient is that?
To make your two pieces look avant-garde, you should choose two different fabrics for the top and bottom. A form-fitting top and a high-waisted chiffon skirt are a great combination. The flowy bottom is appropriate for summer and spring, whereas satin is perfect for chilly days. Moreover, any skirts with a front slit will make a statement to your overall look.
2) The Classic Long Maxi Dress Trends
Aha! That has got to be the go-to type of dress for years. A full-length dress, with the hemline resting just above the ankle. Who isn’t a sucker for that? The reason it is in trend is that it is simple yet effective. The elegance that it exudes on the wearers. Making everyone that fits in it look like a princess. You can’t mess up with a maxi dress.
The best thing about it is that the trend suits all occasions and every season. That makes it perfect attire. Do you want to look posh at a formal wedding? Choose a maxi dress with a slight shimmery accent. Or are you going to a semi-formal outdoor wedding? Go for a form-fitting, light, airy fabric that will flow every time the breeze hits your body.
Or is it a winter and fall wedding? Then choose a dark and warm colour like burgundy to perfect your rustic look, which is flawless for the season. Spring or summer wedding? No worries, the floral pattern and bright colours are expecting you. See? You got a wide range of choices from the maxi dress alone.
3) Mini Dress? Go all in
Mini dress, in my opinion, is also one of the most misunderstood dress trends. Many choose to omit this attire simply because it is not formal enough. But I’d say wear it. The dress is formal or informal based on how you style it.
Well, you shouldn’t choose a mini dress that is too tight and short. Unless you want Grandma Helen to give you the side-eye throughout the wedding, with a mini-dress that is already showing skin, choose one with long sleeves to be a bit conservative. Puffed or lacy sleeves are another great option to look more fashionable.
4) Knitted Dress Trends for The Winter
The knitted dress is cozy, soft, and oh-so-in-trend. It combines both style and practicality. The minimalistic feature of the dress is a choice of many during the winter. It exudes a vintage look but still provides comfort to the wearers.
With the knitted dress, you need to select bright and bold colours. Because neutral colours tend to make it look a bit mundane and casual, keep in mind that you still want to fit into the crowd without looking too over the top.
To add some depth to your look, choose one with mixed rainbow colours or a checkered pattern that is quite unusual. In addition, pair the dress with some feather or fur accessories to complete your outfit.
5) Subtle Cut-Outs
Cut-out dresses are dress trends that started to climb their way into the fashion industry in the 20s. The way the dress shows some skin but is not too revealing makes people crazy about it. Some may think that it is a bit much to wear to a wedding. But I’d say go for it. It does not have to be one with too many cut-outs. A bit on the midriffs is considered good.
The beauty of cut-out dresses is they are suitable for many occasions, including indoors and outdoors. Because of the cuts it possesses, you don’t even need many accessories to complete the look. As usual, choose a fun floral print for the summer and spring, whereas a velvety and satiny fabric for the fall and winter. In addition, choosing a dress with a high neckline will help if you wish to look taller.
6) Slip Dress, One of The All-Time Favorite Dress Trends
The slip dress is another outfit that is perfect for all seasons. Depending on how you style it, you can wear it all year round. This dress is so versatile and minimalist. Which the addition of some accessories and an updo hairstyle, you are great to go.
Back then, it was perceived as revealing and disrespectful to the bride if you wear this to a wedding. However, the perception is all gone now. So it does not appear like you are wearing sleepwear a few accessories are a must when adorning a slip dress. You can style it with a long necklace that extends the neckline. And make it a little bit extra with some big, bold earrings and bracelets, and strappy heels.
In addition, the length of the dress does not matter. It can be either a midi dress or a maxi dress. Both will make you look alluring in the simplest way. But, to be distinct, select one with slanted cut hemlines or textured fabric.
Final Thoughts on Wedding Guests Dress Trends
It can be a bit daunting to go out and present yourself in a pair of heels and a fancy outfit, especially after not being out for so long. It is the most challenging to buy the perfect dress to attend those nuptials and make yourself look confident.
