Theory: The reason you haven't found the perfect dress to wear to that fast-approaching wedding you're invited to could be because you shouldn't actually wear a dress. Don't get us wrong. Our love for dresses is well-documented here at Who What Wear, and we're still very much into them. But sometimes, to stand out from the crowd, you need to see past the typical floral midis and lace minis that dominate wedding guest attire. Instead, why not consider an elegant trouser suit?
From fine checks to linen and a standout colour palette iteration, some of our favourite looks we've been archiving on Instagram lately all revolve around suiting, and they've certainly inspired us to give them a whirl for wedding season.
More comfortable than the vast majority of dresses, two-piece suits always resurge come springtime and never fail to look chic when paired with courts and dainty arm candy—which happens to be all you need to make them look wedding guest–appropriate, too.
Keep scrolling for five examples of impressive wedding guest suit outfits, and then proceed to shop the pieces you need to re-create them. Best dressed guest? It's in the bag.
Style Notes: You needn't default to heels to create a sleek suited ensemble. Thanks to sharp tailoring, you can pair just about any shoes with a suit, and you're practically guaranteed it'll look polished.
