From midi dresses to longer ankle-length dresses, there are all sorts of lengths to choose from. Obviously, with it being a wedding, wearing a floor length gown is off limits, but any length in between is on trend this season. It’s not just dresses that are on trend, playsuits are also highly fashionable and perfect for weddings, or at least, full-length ones are. Another option is to wear a skirt and top – this can either be a high-waisted skirt and cropped-style top or a full-length top and skirt, depending on your personal preference and style.
