Weddings are the ultimate space to make a fashion statement, so it’s no wonder guests stress about what to wear. If you’ve already RSVP’d, you’re probably weighing your options right now — flowy and formal? Fitted and fashion-forward?

While the standard choice is an elegant gown, it’s far from the only option, and wearing pants to a wedding doesn't have to be a no-no. If you want to twist and twirl without all the fuss, it’s time to leave dresses in the dust. Not only will you stand out in the crowd, but with proper occasion etiquette and some fresh inspiration, you’ll make a statement all your own in a dressy jumper or pantsuit.

01

Matching sets

They’re consuming Instagram feeds everywhere, and with good reason! Co-ords result in easy one-and-done dressing, so you can achieve peak formality without all the fuss. With so many styles and patterns to choose from, you have an assortment of options.

Seek out a matching top and bottom with an elegant pattern, and look for quality fabrics such as silk, satin, jacquard, brocade, velvet, or linen. With some statement accessories and a chic pair of heels, you’ve got a stylish look that won’t stop you from making your move on the dance floor.

Classic tailoring

Even the easiest outfit gets a major upgrade when proper tailoring comes into play. Simple trousers with clean lines and a precise fit can work wonders for your figure, your budget, and your wedding day look.

Pull it all together by embracing the occasion’s formality; choose a formal blouse in a luxe fabric, and use that as the focus piece. Then, add a pair of on-trend stilettos, a sleek clutch, and statement earrings to appear polished without going overboard.

Pantsuits

The perfect blend between feminine and masculine, pantsuits are a fitting choice when your friends are tying the knot. Embrace the best of both worlds by selecting a style that exudes power. Think sharp tailoring, clean lines, and an effortless flow. Then, bring out your romantic side by selecting a feminine color or pattern, such as florals, soft shades, or bold pinks.

Unexpected but oh-so-suitable, this is a look we’re loving. Complete your ensemble with drop earrings, colorful heels, and a chic bag, then prepare to turn heads.

The blazer effect

While some pants are too sheer or too loud to wear on their own, a classic blazer provides structure that evokes instant elegance. Paired together, the look’s truly showstopping. Search for an elegant pair in a slightly-sheer fabric (these include shorts underneath for coverage), or pants featuring bold color, bright patterns, or sparkling details.

Once you’ve found your perfect pants, look for a slightly oversized blazer in a luxe material and coordinating color. Add glistening jewels, wrap heels, and a mini bag for sophisticated style.

Jumpsuits

One-and-done dressing has never been easier, and some jumpsuit styles are so free-flowing you can’t even tell the difference! That’s not required for this occasion, however — select the style you love and go with the flow!

There’s a silhouette suitable for any wedding, from beach ceremony to black tie. Find one in a flattering cut and luxe fabric, then complete the look with accessories in a coordinating shade. From V-neck styles with wrap fronts and wide legs to body-sculpting bandage cuts, there’s an option to meet every guest’s personal style and budget.

Wide-leg trousers

Don’t just go wide — go exaggerated. We’ve seen these voluminous trousers taking over our Instagram pages, and we can’t turn away. You’ll have that same effect at your next wedding if you do the look the right way, and better yet, you’ll have full range of motion as you dance your heart out until dawn.

From plisse to silk, formal options serve major style points, and they have a similar flow to a skirt, giving feminine vibes from the moment you pull them on. Balance out the proportions by pairing them with a fitted top in an elegant fabric, then go big with the jewelry.

Party pants

From sparkling statement pants that shimmer as you swirl to fluffy fur details that evoke '80s glamour, these pants are party makers in and of themselves. If experimentation is your thing, go big-time with the flashiest pair you can find.

Keep the rest of your look simple, from basic gold jewelry to suede flats, and heads will turn. It's a creative way to dress up without sacrificing your personal style.

Cropped culottes

Show off some showstopping shoes with a fashion-forward pair of culottes. Slightly cropped with a relaxed fit and plenty of flow, this version of wedding day dressing puts full focus on your accessories.

Select a blouse in a lightweight chiffon fabric, balancing out the look with long sleeves and a V-neck silhouette. Add chandelier earrings, sky-high stilettos, and a sparkling handbag for a sleek look you'll love to wear from rehearsal dinner through reception.

Sparkle

You can never go wrong with some sparkle, right? We don’t think so. Glittering from hip to hem, shimmering pants add instant formality to any outfit, with countless styling options for diverse aesthetics.

Whether you go matchy-matchy with a sparkling top or wear a simple blouse and attention-grabbing accessories, this look glitters as you twist and twirl. The only downside will be the endless questions about where other guests can get a pair!

Bold, bright color

You're not used to seeing women in bright head-to-toe ensembles every day, so not rock the look at the next wedding? Select a bright shade, from vibrant orange to fuschia, aqua, canary yellow, or moss green. Then, select a flowing pair of trousers, a matching top, shoes, and accessories to get that monochromatic effect.

You'll add a splash of color to the ceremony while looking instantly, of-the-moment chic.
