What to wear if you're invited to a wedding?

Robes for less than 175 euros

At Mango and H&M, the wedding season is all about long dresses with Y2K charm, available in soft hues and featuring ruffles, right in line with the current leading trends, while French label Sézane imagines a floaty version, flattering all silhouettes. Finally, at & Other Stories, we prefer an asymmetrical model in sand-colored linen.

Suits

Another option for those who want to move away from the traditional, old faithful dress: the suit, which is both chic and elegant, and can also be worn sexy with nothing underneath... We like our suits in linen at Arket or powder pink at Cos.

Shoes

Just one suggestion: choose comfortable shoes so you can move around easily throughout the day. That's why we recommend kitten heels, so chic with their XXS heel, as well as bubblegum versions by Maje, mule-style by Louboutin or silver by Courrèges. Another choice is wedges, simple and effective.

The perfect ingredients to spice up an outfit that's a little too simple.
