I've Worn These Easy Wedding Outfit Formulas for 5 Years Straight

I just love me a good wedding. I've been lucky enough to go to so many phenomenal ones over the past few years. It's an excuse to see friends and family and an opportunity to get dressed up for a day filled with love and fun. What's not to adore about that? I've been to three weddings in Spain in the not-so-distant past (including my own), had a luxurious jaunt to Puglia, travelled to various parts of the British countryside and even enjoyed a few ceremonies in my home city of London.

I was taking a trip down memory lane recently—scrolling through a huge back catalogue of candid shots my photographer husband has amassed—and I started to realise that there are two particular outfit formulas I turn to as a wedding guest (no matter the season or location). These two trusty ensembles save the day, and so I wonder if they might do the same for you too. With wedding season fast approaching, take a look at the two looks I reach for, and then shop some of my favourite picks to re-create your own versions in 2018. Just please excuse any shots where I may have had one too many glasses of prosecco…
