5 Stylish Wedding Guest Outfits For Mature Women

With so much fast young fashion on the high street shopping for wedding guest outfits when you'd prefer not to show off your knees or your arms can be a challenge. Enter SL, here to prove you can nail a special look without too much angst. Here are our favourites…

Stylish Separates

WHAT: Event dressing doesn’t have to mean a dress – why not try smart separates instead?

WHY IT WORKS: First, if you’re shelling out for a great outfit, you get more bang for your buck by investing in separates you’ll wear again. Secondly, both pieces have on-trend appeal, but are still classic enough to create a sophisticated finish – just add soft blush accessories to tie the look together.

Bright Statement

WHAT: A statement red dress is on trend for every age.

WHY IT WORKS: A relaxed floral dress is a safe bet for a glamorous wedding look, and this floaty LK Bennett style ticks the comfort box too. The tie-front detail will smooth your silhouette, whilst on-trend raffia accessories bring the look up to date without looking like you're trying to look like your daughter.

Modern Classic

WHAT: Beulah is the Brit label making glamorous day-to-night dresses the fashion crowd loves; put a grown-up spin on the look by adding a tailored jacket.

WHY IT WORKS: This look is the perfect fashion-classic hybrid, combining all the tropes of a traditional summer season outfit (sensible heels, statement hat, smart coat) with a more fashion-forward dress. However, a high-neckline, appropriate hem length and flatting flute sleeves still make it a win.

Monochrome Chic

WHAT: Who said you have to wear pastels? Try a polka dot dress with black accessories for a soft but alternative approach.

WHY IT WORKS: This DVF dress may show off some arm, but an A-line fit and tie-waist detail create the most flattering of proportions regardless. The best thing about the return of the kitten heel is its practical side – you’ll be comfy all day – whilst sticking to monochrome gives you a chic but cool edge.

Elegant Polish

WHAT: Romantic, floaty pieces not your thing? Take the conventional route in a more structured style.

WHY IT WORKS: A shift dress is an obvious choice, and this Phase Eight dress is a bit of a classic. Sling backs, great earrings and a statement hat add a much-needed dose of glamour.
