Chic wedding looks for the non-traditional girl
By Yemisi Suleiman
Deciding what to wear to a wedding may not be easy especially, if you are not one for our traditional outfits and the aso ebi culture is generally not your thing.
When it comes to wedding guests attires, there are a good number of options to choose from like the jumpsuits, maxi and even trouser suits.
All these in recent years, have been elevated to ‘fancy attires’ that would go from red carpet events to weddings. So whether you are into jumpsuits, midi skirts or trouser suits, we have compiled a list of outfits to serve as inspiration for when next you are shopping for a wedding guests dress.
All you need do, is simply update them with the right accessory and you are good tDRESS
1. THE MIDI SKIRT
The key is to find a skirt that is strong on its own, and pair with an elegant but stylish top and fancy heels.
2. THE JUMPSUIT
Go with a simple, yet elegant jumpsuit and pair the outfit with ankle strap sandals. You can tie your hair in a bun and carry a clutch to keep it all classy.
3. THE MAXI MERMAID DRESS
Go with a dress like this and flaunt your body without worrying about stealing the bride’s show. You don’t need any accessories either; the dress will do all the talking.
4. THE TROUSER SUIT
Wear a coordinating, well-cut pair of trouser suit and match with glam accessory to complete your look.
5. LACE DRESS
Weddings and lace are synonymous, leave the whites to the bride and go for pastel or other muted undertones. The off-shoulder neckline and the high-low hemline are details that do the talking for you.
6. SKIRT SUITS
If you are not a fan of trousers and dresses, don’t worry for there are other alternatives like a tailored skirt suit. Wear with strappy heels with diamanté detail.
7. MAXI DRESS
Look like a glam diva in this gown with embellishments and diamante details. Carry a sleek clutch or chain bag and wear ankle strap heels.
8. SHORT A-LINE MIDI DRESS
Midi dresses are for the stylish and young. A flared midi dress matched with sky-scrapping platform heels, is all you need to get noticed at any wedding.
9. FRINGE DRESS
Go bohemian and vintage with a fringe dress. Let your makeup be subtle and finish it all with a deep red lipstick to look just like a damsel from the retro era.
