Guests at the royal wedding went above and beyond style-wise, dressing in their very finest to celebrate the marriage of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Shop With Us noticed a few new formalwear trends that we are dying to wear for the next wedding we have on the books this summer. Styles like strappy heels and pastels are classics, but one look we’re really into is a maxi shirtdress. We saw the look on stars like Markle’s Suits costar Abigail Spencer, Carey Mulligan and Sofia Wellesley, who attended the wedding alongside her husband of four years, James Blunt.
No longer are shirtdresses only for casual daywear. They have now been officially deemed appropriate for a royal wedding and if ever there was an event to pull out all the stops for, this would be it. The trick to making this look work for formal events and not look like you’re heading to a board meeting or worse, a picnic, is to choose fine fabrics carefully and accessorize with a pair of chic heels.
