#SRCOTD: A Guide To Being The Best Dressed Wedding Guest IN BLACK


Yes, we understand that right now, everyone is all about social distancing, staying at home and staying safe. But when this is all over, there is sure to be back to back weddings and you sure want to be prepared to be one of the best-dressed wedding guests. 

Long gone are the days when wearing black as a wedding guest was frowned upon. Being the universal neutral colour, black looks good on everyone. It is super versatile being that it can be chic and sophisticated or casual and fun depending on how you play with it.

The key to slaying in black for a wedding lies in the cut and styling of the outfit. Be sure that your outfit denotes that you are there to have fun and not one that looks like you are attending a funeral.

Opt for outfits with sequins, tulle, lace, satin and most importantly, the cut and design should be flattering. Be sure to infuse a combination of a dramatic neckline, bold sleeves, sexy slits and embellishments to add an air of glamour to your look.

Here’s how to be the best-dressed wedding guest in black…
