Unique Wedding Guest Outfits

Starting off with my picks for dresses (and dress alternatives) so you can be the best dressed guest.


Self Portrait Blue Sequins Dress

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

This dress is fabulous. The sequins, the sleeves, the open back, I'm hoping I have an event to wear it to. The brand itself is amazing and all of their pieces are perfect for any wedding guest.

Norma Kamali Purple Dress

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

I have this dress in another color but am still contemplating buying this gorgeous purple. Though the design is simple and elegant, the color is unique. Norma Kamali never fails with their wedding guest dresses.

Sabina Musayev Top and Skirt

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

I love when two pieces go seamlessly together to create a perfect outfit. These pieces can be worn separately so you can get multiple uses out of them. I'm loving a metallic and I'm loving a long sleeve these days so this covers a lot of bases for me!

Blue Silk SIR Dress

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

This is a fun take on a classic slip dress. It feels both sexy and classy and I'm loving the color combination. SIR always has unique styles that feel classic, yet modern. Different, yet on trend.

Brown Taller Marmo Dress

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

This dress is pure fun. With sequins and fringe, the brown gown really makes a statement. Brown is one of my favorite colors this season and I think this is a really exciting way to wear it.

Blue Lidee Open Back Jumpsuit

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

This beautiful flowwy jumpsuit mimics a dress but manages to have its own interesting look. The deep blue color and the cool open back make it a true standout. The model here looks fabulous pairing it with a matching blue shoe and a silver bag.

Dannijo Off the Shoulder Berry Dress

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

I love a simple dress with a little but of added detail. This Dannijo dress adds a ruffle trip to the classic silky dress. The berry color is the cherry on top-HA!

Sequins Simon Miller Suit Outfit

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

This sequins silver suit is basically the coolest thing you could show up to an event in. Though it's far from traditional, this is the ultimate unique wedding guest look--in my humble opinion. Simon Miller never fails to disappoint with quality, stunning looks.

Red Staud Sequins Gown

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

Staud's holiday edit has confirmed what I already knew--it slaps. This red sequins number is sure to turn heads and make a truly great outfit. The accessories don't need to do much because this dress is the show stopper.

Wedding Guest Shoes

Fancy shoes are not usually my forte. I'm more of a sneakers type of gal, but here are some heels that I think will contribute to your unique wedding guest fit.


Victoria Beckham Pink heels

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

These show stopping pink heels have been on my wishlist for ages. They are the perfect color, style and look. If you're looking to add a little something to a black dress, these are the ones.

Schutz Black Heels

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

My go-to when looking for wedding guest outfit shoes is Schutz. They are reasonably priced, pretty comfortable and beautiful. These black heels accented with beading are perfect to elevate any evening look.

Zara Silver Kitten Heels

๐Ÿ’ฒ

These simple (and might I add super affordable) kitten heels could be the perfect addition to any gown. If you love a kitten heel, want to air on the shorter side or simply are hoping for a more comfortable fit, these are a great purchase.

Simkhai Silver Mules

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

These pricier Simkhai heels certainly are unique. They are very special and can be dressed up or down (styled here with jeans). If you are looking for something different, these could be perfect.

Schutz Gold Platforms

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

These are the most comfortable high heels I've worn and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a pair of elevated shoes that go with all of your evening dresses. I wore them with a white dress and plan to wear them with black as well.

Reformation Simple Black Platforms

๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ๐Ÿ’ฒ

These basic black platform heels are simple but perfect for any event. The square toe and silky material make the shoe feel modern. The metallic option is also a great choice.
