The styling intel coming your way will be intriguing if you have a wedding coming up or need some outfit inspiration for another event or gathering on your calendar. Janet Gunn, one of the influencers we routinely look to for sartorial guidance, just returned from a destination wedding and shared snaps of the outfit she wore to the event, along with a few other ensembles she packed for her trip.

"We attended a black-tie destination wedding in Saint Barthelemy, so I searched to strike the perfect balance between elegance and comfort," she tells Who What Wear. Ultimately, Gunn opted for a floor-length one-shoulder gown with feathered trim from Taller Mario. "To complement the beachy and sophisticated vibe, my accessories from Cult Gaia [included a] bag, sunglasses, and hair clips were perfect for the celebration," she told us.
