This Self-Portrait Dress Is a Wedding-Guest-Season Front-Runner

We’ve long been fans of Self-Portrait dresses here at Who What Wear UK. Not only are they beautifully crafted, game-changing wardrobe pieces that take all the stress out of wedding-guest dressing, but said styles also come with a semi-affordable price tag for the bang you’re getting out of your buck. This means we can shop those feel-good frocks with a smidgen less guilt than if we were constantly investing in bank-breaking designer frocks.

And we’re not the only ones still looking to the London-based label for incredible occasionwear. Years on, Self-Portrait still boasts quite the esteemed influencer following, with the likes of Aimee Song, Jessie Bush and Xenia Adonts all choosing one Self-Portrait dress in particular of late.

Featuring a sweetheart neckline, puff sleeves, a ruffled bodice and a midi length, we first clocked Aimee wearing this stunning red-and-white creation while exploring New York City. Then, within a matter of days, Jessie followed suit, wearing the frock on a Maldives getaway. If lightning striking the same spot twice is considered rare, then the fact these two influencers with very different sartorial USPs happen to have honed in on the same dress is a phenomenon of sorts. 

Having commanded so much clout so early into the new season, we reckon Self-Portrait could see demand for this midi dress hit fever pitch, akin to that of the lace midi dress that made the brand the soirée behemoth it is today. 

In fact, Aimee is such a fan of the frock that she's also snapped it up in a buttercup yellow hue, an iteration which also caught the eye of German mega-influencer Xenia. See what we mean? It's wedding-guest dress perfection.
