With 2022 seeded to be one of the biggest years for weddings, if you haven't already experienced an influx of calligraphy-laden save the dates, you're probably about to. And whilst we love weddings, this increase in invites can only mean one thing: an increase in worries about what to wear to all these nuptials. 

With so many different dress codes, vibes and locations, if you're trying to avoid spending a fortune on wedding guest attire, it can be hard to know what kind of dress will go the distance. We recommend investing in a special piece (or pieces) that can work for various occasions with some simple styling tricks or a change of accessories. Ultimately, the goal is to have pieces in your occasion-wear wardrobe that you love and avoid those last-minute panic purchases—a win for both your wallet, wardrobe, and the planet!
