The best guest dresses for every type of wedding this summer

The hardest thing about wedding style is treading the fine line between comfort and formality.

You don’t want to overdo it so that you’re mistaken for a bridesmaid but nor should you look like you’ve just wandered in from the supermarket.

And you definitely don’t want to look too desperate for a fella (even if it’s been more than a year since you’ve had a hot date).

This year, we’re predicting more outdoor ceremonies and Covid-safe marquees, which means you’ll need to think about a sturdier heel, extra layers and rainproof make-up as well.

Oh, and bug spray! A lakeside al fresco wedding may look picturesque but come dusk, the mosquitoes are a nightmare…
