Wedding season has arrived, and with it another batch of invitations to summer soirees. But what should you wear to a summer wedding? The perfect wedding guest dress is bold yet sophisticated, and instagrammable yet appropriate. From sequined cocktail dresses to beachy chiffon frocks, read our Zelouf guide to the best wedding guest dresses for every style. 

Sequined Cocktail Dress

For weddings that call for a cocktail dress code, a sequined mini dress always fits the bill. Festive and fun for any season, sequins can liven up a solid color and add personality to an otherwise understated ensemble. For an added splash of personality, use a sequined fringe fabric like Gloria Fringe Irid Sequin Mesh. With pastel colors like lavender, peach, and rosebud, plus neon options like seagreen and lime, your sequin wedding guest dress will have a flapper flare that surely stands out from the rest. 

Floral Maxi Dress

A classic for a reason, the floral maxi dress is always a safe bet for any summer wedding guest. A maxi silhouette is appropriate for both formal and casual weddings, and can be dressed up or down depending on accessories, hair, and footwear. A multicolor floral fabric in a medium format print is a great way to make a bold statement. Try one of our favorites, Zelouf Silky Knit Print in Aqua/Purple for a dress that’s as fun in the sun as it is on the dancefloor.  

Satin Slip Dress 

For a versatile and flattering wedding guest look, try a silky satin slip dress. A slip dress is a timeless style that can work for any dress code, and it’s rewearable for other special occasions throughout the year. Choose a midi or maxi length for an elevated look, but feel free to choose a bright fabric if the setting permits! We love Zelouf Silky Satin in Fuschia. The lively bright color is perfect for summer, and the lightweight and breathable texture will keep you cool all evening long. 

Black-Tie Crepe Gown

For the black-tie affair, crepe fabric can create the perfect wedding guest dress. It’s versatile, classic and oh-so-flattering, making it timeless and beautiful in any construction. Crepe fabric is beautiful in bodycon, tailored designs, and looks amazing with ruched waists, peplums, and high necklines. Our fabric pick is the Zelouf Chelsea Solid Crepe in Black. This crepe drapes nicely and is favored for its durability and resistance to wrinkles. It comes in a range of weights and finishes, and is a popular choice for elegant and sophisticated garments. 

Beachy Chiffon Dress

Beachside weddings call for a breezy, flowing fabric. A chiffon dress is an excellent choice for a feminine, delicate silhouette that catches the wind. Choose a serene pastel shade to fit the ethereal atmosphere and try subtle hints of mermaid-inspired details, like ribbons and asymmetrical hemlines. Zelouf Pearl Silk Chiffon comes in a wide variety of colors like turquoise, coral, and lux magenta and has a subtle sheen. Its lightweight feel is comfortable and breathable, while its drape and shimmer will add sophistication to any wedding guest look.
