While lockdown may prevent many normal weddings from occurring IRL — there are still those electing to have socially distanced ceremonies as well as virtual nuptials. And since it’s always advisable to dress appropriately for these special occasions, what better way to source some style inspo than from two impeccably dressed royal ladies.

Here are Wedding Guest Style Tips According to Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton:

  1. Don’t Fear Florals

2. Revisit that ‘Single Ladies’ Sheath

Duchess Kate looked elegant alongside sister Pippa for a wedding in June 2011. The fitted Zara geometric print dress was a staple in Kate’s closet since her days as a bachelorette in London as far back as 2007!  So, go ahead and pull out that vintage but wedding worthy party dress! Similar HERE


3. Modern Accessories Matter

For a country wedding, the Duchess of Sussex wore a Club Monaco colorblock dress. The actress also added posh accents with a MIU MIU leather belt, Kayu straw clutch as well as a Philip Treacy ribbon fascinator. Meghan’s pointy bow pumps with a cute cutout and her lacy camisole finished the cool girl ensemble. Similar HERE 


4. Befriend the Blazer

While a cardigan would be too casual, the Duchess of Cambridge often pairs her fit and flare wedding guest dresses with a charming and colorful blazer. Perfect for a sunny summer wedding–the chic topper never goes out of style. Similar HERE


5. Dress Drama is OK

While standing out at a wedding is often considered a sin against the bride–it’s not actually an affront. A billowy and beautiful designer dress is a fine choice for a wedding guest. Case in point: Meghan Markle in toile wrap dress by Oscar de la Renta. Similar HERE

While selecting a wedding guest dress can be difficult as no one wants to clash with a bevy of bridesmaids–there’s a safe shade for all seasons: berry. From raspberry to plum to mauve and deep cherry–there’s no wrong way to dress in a fanciful fruity shade. Similar HERE
