In 2018 we're all about ripping up the rule book when it comes to fashion. If you have a wedding soon and you're freaking out because you think you have to find a suit or a fancy dress, well you can stop freaking out about in 3...2...1. There are many easy ways around looking having to buy a traditional cocktail dress or suit to a wedding.
Pants/Chinos + Shirt + Desert boots
2018 is all about eccentric prints which is a fun way to work a little bit of self-expression into a formal pair of pants. Find yourself a pair of checked or plaid pants to wear with a crisp white shirt tucked in to a wedding. Alternatively, go for a classic pair of chinos or trendy pair of wide-leg pants, a plain t-shirt and a luxury leather jacket to complete. A neutral pair of desert boots or brogues is the best way to finish off this look!
I do get it, you might not want to feel stiff dressed up in a suit all day but c'mon, who doesn't love to wear a blazer? Blazers in 2018 have been through a massive fashion overhaul meaning they are actually a trendy piece of clothing which you can wear day-to-day. And guess what? It's actually one of our top suggestions for the ladies this year!
Boys, if you don't want to wear the suits, we definitely will!
Daniela, Fashiola's Finnish editor called the trend back in January when she decided to swap out the party dress for something a lil' more modern this year.
Midi Skirt + Crop Top + Flat Shoes
Midi skirts are a perfect cute outfit item for wedding parties - and coincidentally a huge trend this year. Pleated midi skirt, denim midi skirts and patterned skirts are all popular choices. Pair them with a crop top or a tie-up blouse and you will find the perfect balance between fancy and modern. You can either pair these with a chunky pair of casual heels, but if you're going for a more casual look, you can always pair them with slip-on brogues or lace-up sandals!
With weddings colors that traditionally work are beige, light pink, grey, brown, light blue and black. If you want to change things up for a bit look for patterned shirts or trousers in those colors, as it will add something unique and modern to your outfit.
