Choosing the perfect vintage-themed wedding guest dress
If you’ve been invited to a vintage-themed wedding, you could be a little lost as to what that means when it comes to outfit style. What is vintage for one person could be something from a totally different era to someone else. The first thing you need to decide is if your vintage look should be more Downton Abbey era or more pin-up girl. Either way, you’ll want to choose a wedding guest outfit that makes you look and feel great, as you celebrate their day with the happy couple.
Think classic styling for a vintage-themed wedding
Vintage weddings are all about classic styling and romantic looks; so, as a guest, you’ll want to choose a dress that encapsulates everything you love about the era you choose. A stunning skater dress, with its nipped-in waist and flared skirt, can be a great option. Or, for those after something with a longer line, a lace midi dress is both classic and timelessly chic. Go full floor-length with a maxi dress or celebrate the 1920s era with a layered dress cut from floaty and light fabric.
Choose neutral tones or bold hues for a classic vintage look
When it comes to colour, you can opt for more understated dusky hues, such as pinks, pale blues and greys, browns or creams, or turn up the volume with bright tones and go for red, royal blue or yellow. Lace accents or embellishments on your dress will accentuate the vintage feel and make sure you embody the wedding’s theme fully, whilst still wearing something that looks incredible and classically beautiful.
Accessorise away to take your vintage wedding guest look to the next level
The right accessories to perfectly complement your dress will depend somewhat on the vintage era you’re celebrating. A 1920s flapper look is finished perfectly with a headband and feather for your pin-curl up-do, plus a sparkly clutch, along with heeled Mary Jane shoes. If you’re opting for a vintage wedding guest outfit from the 1940s or ‘50s, strappy sandals and Hollywood waved hair or sideswept curls will finish off your look with style.
