DSC_0680

As a wedding guest, you know that you want to look and feel good throughout the day, and it’s also a safe bet that although the couple in question don’t want to be upstages, they also want their guests to look and feel good!

Luckily, fashion has never been so diverse and versatile. Many of the older fashions are back and dressing to suit your shape and age has never been easier. There’s also the new influx of technology which makes dressing and styling easier than ever so you can plan the perfect wedding guest outfit.

Pinterest

That might look like a spelling mistake but Pinterest is the hottest site on the web. In their own words, “Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.”

In addition to your own pinning, you can look at other people’s pin boards for inspiration for your own board or simply out of interest.

Use of Pinterest is by invite only and they have a list of rules and etiquette. They’re also pretty hot on suspending use for breaking their rules, so you know that you won’t be spammed or abused – you can just have fashionable fun in the safety and comfort of your own home.

When it comes to wedding dressing, Pinterest can be a godsend. Imagine being able to take the inspiration of your favourite styles, celebrities and designers and put them all together in one location?

Who uses Pinterest

One of the best features is that individual designers have their own Pinterest boards and these are designers that you might not find in the shops – so you can find a completely unique wedding guest outfit which you can guarantee nobody else will be wearing.

Furthermore, many designers use Pinterest as a way of showing their fans what they like and what they class as inspiration. Among notable pinners are fashion editor Nina Garcia and designer Michael Kors.

On the Go

The great thing about the web is that it’s available on the go – the majority of mobile phones have internet service so as you go about your shopping, you can use the pieces you put together on Pinterest as your inspiration

Whether you picked out a retro style, a rockabilly look or a touch of eighties glam, bringing your Pinterest with you is a great way of finding the perfect style for the perfect look.

Accessorising

What’s more, as well as your actual outfit, you might find examples of shoes, bags and accessories which could completely transform or make over any outfit you choose.

The right or wrong accessories could completely transform a dress from drab to fab, but it can often be the case that you can’t try on the entire ensemble until you’ve brought it.

The beauty of Pinterest is that it allows you to place outfit, shoes, accessories, bag and jewellery all in the same board to get a better idea of how the entire look will appear on the big day.
