Our We Try Before You Buy series aims to take the stress out of shopping and eliminate the number of post office visits you make each month to return failed online orders. We test new-season buys and styling ideas so you don’t have to. Here, we’re letting you know what is actually worth investing in.
I can’t think of many occasions where you carefully scout out and plan an outfit six months in advance—apart from weddings. And I’m not just talking about your own wedding dress. To help you find the prettiest wedding-guest outfits out there this year, we had more than 50 dresses from Rixo, Rejina Pyo, Ghost, Topshop, ASOS and many more sent to the Who What Wear offices for our team and trusted stylist friends to try on. The dress everyone fawned over the most was a pink linen floral midi dress with puffy sleeves by Gül Hürgel (the team is even considering buying one together). However, Olivia Rubin’s button-front lavender-printed midi dress was a close second.
