Plus size gals know the struggle of finding a gorgeous wedding guest dress when so many labels only offer up to a size 12. Lately, however, more and more brands are getting with the program and doubling down on fashionable wares, leaving you with a plethora of options to choose from when shopping for a plus size wedding guest dress.
For spring and summer weddings, it’s the perfect time to break out of your cold-weather rut and embrace new trends for the season. This year, we’re all about pastel colors as a delightful starting point for a wedding guest dress—lavender is the It shade among this soft spectrum, with pale yellow, pink, blue, and mint as popular hues. To avoid an overly saccharine situation, aim for a pastel style with an asymmetric hem or in a zesty print.
Vivid colors are likewise a trendy choice—hot pink, tangerine, and bright blue will ensure a stand-out moment. In terms of florals, the new look comes with a vintage-inspired twist—think ditzy motifs, couch-style prints (kind of like your grandmother’s sofa, but modernized), or a mix-and-match of patterns. So fun!
Whether you’re game for punchy pigments or prefer neutral hues, the newest silhouettes come with romantic detailing like flirty flutter sleeves, asymmetric ruffles, and tiered skirts for fresh and flattering fits. So feminine and fitting for a day celebrating romance.
