What The Vogue Editors Are Wearing To Weddings This Summer

“I think a good wedding guest outfit conforms, to all intents and purposes, to your normal style, but elevated a notch. Such high-octane social occasions are not the best time to try out an entirely new persona. Accordingly, this summer, I will be wearing a better version of what I wear every day – black dress, heels and sunglasses – and then, once wedding season is over, each purchased item will seamlessly integrate with my wardrobe. As long as I keep thinking of the cost per wear, I can justify nearly anything.”

“I’ve got three weddings this year, all of them abroad, and all of them lip-bitingly glam. Assuming that the sun will be shining far harder than it is in England right now, I love the idea of a reflective metallic dress (so long as it doesn’t blind the bride on her way down the aisle). This Paco Rabanne number has subtle shine, and I’m so obsessed with the brand that I have been carrying its little chainmail bags around all summer (it’s big enough for a phone plus battery pack, which is all you really need). Bottega Veneta is doing a very good shoe right now, thanks to new creative director Daniel Lee, so I’m going to be living in this toe-thong style this summer. And Agmes, a jewellery brand from New York, is topping my list for every event I have coming up. These long baroque coral silver earrings with raw pearls are too pretty not to pack.”

“Black for a wedding is now kosher (so long as it’s not worn to a Jewish wedding, where it is frowned upon). It makes a refreshing change from florals, and souped up with Bottega Veneta’s puffy leather clutch bag (big enough to fit a spare pair of flats, a wadge of tissues and a packet of Fruit Pastilles, which will provide you with ample ammunition for even the sulkiest of table mates) and some Maryam Nassir Zadeh sculptural earrings, it will make you feel elegant all weekend long.”
