Wedding season is in full swing and we’ve found the best one-piece outfits in time for the big day. 

It’s finally here – no not a heatwave – we mean wedding season. It’s the time of the year most of us have the excuse to get dressed up and feel a little bit fancier than usual. While choosing a dress is one of the most important decisions a bride may have to make, aside from choosing the partner, that is – it doesn’t mean guests have to make these choices too (we mean the dress).

If you’re among the women who aren’t big fans of frocks, you’re always on the look out for an alternative outfit or you just don’t want to have to ditch trousers because of the warmer weather then we have the thing for you: the jumpsuit. 

We have to say this year is one of the strongest for jumpsuits thanks to the likes of cult label Faithfull The Brand creating sell-out styles influencers can’t get enough of. Then there’s the ASOS £50 jumpsuit that’s basically breaking the internet right now (see Anna, below). It’s true, jumpsuits are the chic, easy-to-wear option that suit all body shapes and budgets. Shop our edit of the best wedding guest jumpsuits below. Feel free to thank us with some left over cake from the nuptials!

Copenhagen-based influencer Anna wears the ASOS £50 jumpsuit of dreams. It’s selling out so fast already, for obvious aesthetically pleasing reasons so you’ll have to be quick. 

Stylist Monikh  wears one of Faithfull The Brand’s most popular jumpsuit styles this season, the ‘Frankie’. Basket bag and white mules not essential, but advised.

Sometimes a winning outfit is all about the attention to detail. The puff sleeves with ruched shoulders, covered buttons and sassy trouser split is what makes this jumpsuit more premium than the high street price tag.
