The Affordable Designer Brand Fashion Girls Are Wearing to 2018 Weddings

As we all know, statement dresses are big news this year, and it feels like each week sees a new It dress steal the spotlight—think Kitri’s green belted frock or Topshop’s polka-dot showstopper for starters. So many dresses, so little time. However, with wedding season in full swing, we’re on the lookout for something unique and a little less viral. After all, no one wants to step into a "who wore it best" moment. When it comes to under-the-radar dresses for spring/summer 2018, look no further than London-based Olivia Rubin, the designer who has won the hearts of the fashion crowd with her effortlessly cool approach to wedding guest dressing.

Cropping up on enough of Instagram feeds for the eagle-eyed team here to notice, Rubin's distinctive designs are characterised by their ankle-grazing length and unusual hues and prints. “Wearing a statement piece ultimately makes a woman feel special and, like me, I believe my customers are searching for something a little bit different to everything else out there,” she explains. “Whether it be small details such as multicoloured buttons or something bolder like my pastel-coloured guipure lace, I’m always striving to find that extra-special element,” she says.
