Your wedding day will probably the most iconic day of your life; however, your best friend’s big day is equally significant. If you are not the bridesmaid and she has not picked out a specific outfit for you, what you dress like for her day is crucial.It’s a universal rule that you shall not steal the bride’s thunder on the day, however, that is no reason for you to leave your sense of style back home. Take a cue from our favorite celebrity wedding guests like Kate Moss, Pippa Middleton, and Emily Blunt who look achingly fashionable at weddings. So, let’s talk about ten ways you can strut your fashion game down the aisle without competing with the bride.
Flaunt a Printed Maxi Dress Like Ashley Olsen
Our favorite child actor Ashley Olsen sported a printed maxi dress at her friend Molly Fishkin’s wedding accompanied with oversized jewelry and there was no stopping us from falling in love with her attire. A printed maxi dress is an easy way to dress up for your friend’s wedding without actually wearing heavily embroidered or OTT gowns. This option is perfect for surreal summer weddings.
Show Off Those Killer Heels Like Beyonce
You know Beyonce loves Solange when she underdressed for her sister’s big day. While Bey steered from her usual glamorous styling, this option could work wonderfully if your style is a lot simpler and yet wish to look a tad bit dressy at the event. Pair your simple LBD with a pair of killer heels and there is no stopping you from channeling that subtle but stylish appearance.
Look Sexy in a Satin Cocktail Dress Like Jennifer Aniston
Playing the stylish girl on screen for many years in the hit series F.R.I.E.N.D.S., Jennifer Aniston is no less of a diva off-screen as well. Take a leaf from her book and wear a satin cocktail dress with your hair in an ornate bun. This look is elegant and fuss-free. The satin aids a luxurious persona, just apt for an understated yet-dressy look.
Make a Statement with Your Skirt Like Jenna Lyons
Our favorite girl from the J. Crew clan knows how to relay her stylish personality into occasion dressing. Style a statement skirt with basic separates to recreate one of Jenna’s looks. The trick is to let the skirt be the center of attention. Team this outfit with some heels and a pair of dainty earrings.
Bare It with a Strapless Dress Like Eva Longoria
The feminine goddess Eva Longoria adorned a strapless empire waistline dress for a friend’s wedding in Spain and we couldn’t stop swooning over it. There is something so feminine and delicate about a strapless dress. Show off those sharp collar bones at the wedding and you will be getting pictured all evening like a celebutante.
Flash a Fancy Jacket Like Florence Welch
One of the modish options is a pair of sharp trousers and an exceptional blazer. If we truly follow the leads of Florence Welch, then let your personality shine through the details of the jacket, whether it’s in form of ruffles, color or prints. Let it do the talking for you.
Pretty and Perfect in a Lace Dress Like Alexa Chung
When our girl Alexa sports a floor-length lace dress, we dutifully follow suit. Lace dresses are the epitome of romances and abide by a wedding’s atmosphere. A delicate lace dress can do what an array of bodycon dress may not suffice for. A word of caution though, do not opt for one in white. Let the bride have her moment unless the dress code is white all over.
Bring Out the Bling Like Teri Hatcher
When you are a VIP, you will find that you do not need to dress to the nines at every event. If your style is hugely graceful and does not believe in loud prints or ruffles then Teri Hatcher’s easy-going style might be for you. Seen at bestie Eva Longoria’s nuptials, Teri adorned a light blue floor length dress with a statement necklace, looking like a dream.
Seductive Sheen with a Sequin Dress Like Diane Kruger
When Jason Wu tied the knot back in Mexico, our German belle wore a sequin dress and left the crowd in awe. Nothing announces a celebration like a sequinned dress, so adorn yourself with a gorgeous one and get ready to dance the night away right next to the newlyweds.
Prim with Loads of Attitude Like Jennifer Lawrence
What kind of wedding would it be if you didn’t truly enjoy it? Throw on an effortless dress without too many detailings when your main goal of the day is to run a ton of errands for your bestie and to enjoy the cake. Take a cue from Jennifer Lawrence who was seen having a gala time at Amy Schumer’s union in a simple dress. After all, you cannot steal the bride’s thunder no matter how much of an A-lister you are.
These spot on styles should have you sorted for the next wedding you attend. Impress the other guests by looking just like the star that you are!
