Wedding Guest Outfits: Whitney Port’s Guide To Looking Amazing On Your Friend’s Big Day
EXCLUSIVE: Whitney Port tells us how to pick the perfect outfit for a wedding – and shares the secrets of her make-up bag
Wedding season is here, which means we’re frantically searching for the perfect guest ensembles to see us through summer. Elegance is key, comfort is paramount – but how do we manage to look glam without upstaging the bride?
We spoke to star of The Hills, Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model and fashion designer herself,Whitney Portfor the ultimate guide on guest dressing – and the beauty product checklist you NEED to follow…
How should we decide what to wear for a friend’s wedding? Talk us through the process.
The whole day is about celebrating two people’s love for each other, so that beautiful, vintage, romantic style is always a good place to start. I am constantly on my Pinterest boards pinning my inspirations throughout the year, so I often look at them when it comes to choosing my outfit for the day.
I like to take styles and make them my own with accessories, be it unique hair pieces or a pretty clutch bag matched with complementing heels. At the end of the day, if it’s a close friend that’s getting married, I am less worried about what I’m wearing and more focused on making sure they have the perfect day.
How can we style ourselves without upstaging the bride?
I think that there’s a lot to be said about subtle styling for a wedding. Stay away from white, but try wearing softer hues rather than bold primary colours. Accessorise elegantly and keep your hair and make-up natural-looking.
What’s your favourite outfit you’ve ever worn to a wedding?
I was a bridesmaid at my best friend’s wedding last year and we wore the most gorgeous blush-tone dresses. They complemented the bride’s dress beautifully, without upstaging her, and were perfectly subtle and feminine. I loved them! I then accessorised with Erickson Beamon earrings, Jerome Rosseau heels and a Swarovski bag.
Tell us how to accessorise our own guest outfit…
It depends completely on the outfit, but I would always recommend wearing a pair of elegant earrings, potentially a delicate bracelet to match and then a cute bag with pretty heels to finish off the look.
