We’ve hit May, which means one thing – it’s summer party season.

With occasions popping up left, right and centre, we’re in full soiree swing, and if you’ve got a wedding coming up – royal or otherwise – we’ve got your sartorial needs sorted.

Whether you’re going to a traditional ceremony, kicking back in the country or hitting the beach for cool bohemia, we’ve hunted down the perfect wedding outfits for all situations this summer.

And to kick-start our summer wedding guide, we’re getting gorgeous with a timeless traditional look that’ll have you looking luxe at even the most stately ceremonies.

A traditional wedding calls for something classic, and nothing’s better suited to a signature ceremony than neutral tones. Jaeger’s metallic tweed shift dress is timeless with a contemporary twist, and it’s cinched-in waist will ensure you’re creating curves in all the right places.

Tweed shift dress, £460, available at Jaeger. BUY NOW!


Accessories should be tonal variations of your dress. We love French Connection’s classic Jenae courts – their dove grey shade will work wonders with a tan and their slim stiletto is an especially sleek touch.

A cream clutch bag is a chic way to carry your essentials and break up your look with lightness – Reiss’ hexagonal box bag will add a contemporary direction with its angular shape.

A hat will finish your traditional outfit off with statement apolomb – play around with shapes and styles to find the piece that makes you feel special.
