The City Wedding Guest Dress Edit

If the wedding you’re attending is set in a city, there’s one word you need to reach for when getting dressed—and that’s chic! Metropolitan ceremonies mean you should opt for slickness or romance, bold patterns over painterly florals. Whether the wedding is calling for black tie or cocktail attire, these rules of thumb still apply. Anna October makes a slinky back city wedding guest dress that’s absolutely perfect, dubbed the Veronique dress. While Belgian-based mother-and-daughter brand Bernadette delivers duchess saint gowns in straight silhouettes that serve as blank canvases for color; the Phillipe bow dress in crimson, specifically. Plus, a city wedding is perfect for a simple slip dress—you might already have one in your closet. For accessories, we like Prada’s metallic logo pumps and Mango’s 3D flower mules. For handbags, Khaite’s assortments of kiss-lock bags with chain straps are hard to beat. Shop all these and more in our edit of city wedding guest dresses.
