Call me a hopeless romantic, but there’s something about a good ol’ fashioned wedding that starts the water works. This spring, I’m attending seven celebrations of my closest family and friends—a major undertaking in wedding guest style as someone who’s daily uniform consists of sweatpants and hoodies. Luckily for me, shopping for wedding guest attire is one of my favorite things to do, and there’s nothing more special than finding the perfect accessory to pair with an outfit of choice.
Regardless of dress code, accessories are the best on-trend way to spice up a wedding guest dress you may repurpose for a few celebrations throughout the spring and summer as wedding season kicks into high gear. Although my basic black slip dress usually works for any wedding I go to, I find myself experimenting more and more with elaborate jewelry and statement handbags to change up my look without having to spend a pretty penny on an entire new outfit. After attending a ton of postponed pandemic weddings over the last two years, I’m basically an expert at this point.
Below, all of the accessories to add to your wedding guest outfits that will make you the best dressed person in the room—second to the couple, of course.
