10 jumpsuits for the fashion-forward wedding guest

The right wedding guest attire can be a tough one. In theory, figuring out what to wear should be a doddle: as a guest, you don’t really have anything else to do but show up, enjoy the celebrations and have a good time. In reality, though, there’s a bit more to it than a simple invite: in what season is the wedding taking place? Will I need sleeves? A jacket, maybe? Where’s the location? Will I be able to walk in those shoes? Is it formal? Casual? For the fashion-forward guest, these questions can prove to be a bit of a quandary.

Consider the jumpsuit. In general, a jumpsuit is a great, inexpensive (two-outfits-in-one) option for a special occasion that will pay for itself after a couple of wears. Just like when Cinderella found her glass slipper, you’ll know when you find the perfect j-suit. It will sit comfortably on your body – not too tight and not too loose – hug your frame nicely but give you enough room to manoeuvre throughout the day.

To help you curb your wardrobe woes and decode the ‘what to wear’ scenario, here are ten elegant, simple and more-is-more jumpsuits from every corner of the high street and internet to help you look and feel your best on the day.
