The 4 Colours Our Editors Will Be Wearing to Weddings This Season

Summer might be largely considered peak wedding season, but if you're anything like me, you'll have a few nuptials to attend before the year is out. Some couples prefer to say "I do" while shrouded in beautiful autumnal light, for example, or surrounded by a romantic winter wonderland. And if you've scored an invite to such an occasion, you're probably starting to think about what you should wear.

With a whole new season comes a whole new set of trends. This autumn and winter, there's a refreshing focus on colour. All things bright and cheerful are in the spotlight, but we're also seeing a lot of rich neutrals that are ideal for upcoming weddings.

To make your event-dressing easier, we've scoured our favourite fashion websites and collated the best formal dresses, jumpsuits and sets to wear while watching your loved ones walk down the aisle. There's everything from simple silk designs to glitzy embellished minidresses at a range of price points.

Style Notes: Because pink is a huge trending colour right now, there are so many beautiful dresses out there to choose from. Needless to say, we struggled to whittle it down to just five…

Style Notes: Forget what you've heard—you can wear black to a wedding. Personally, I don't think there's an occasion an LBD won't work for. Opt for a print if you're worried about black feeling too heavy.

3. Cobalt Blue

Style Notes: Cobalt blue is to winter what cerulean blue is to summer. This cheerful hue goes well with silver- and gold-toned accessories and will really pop during picture time.

4. Chocolate Brown

Style Notes: Chocolate brown is a popular choice for luxury labels and high-street brands alike this season. Choose a satin fabrication for more formal dress codes.
