After more than a year of will they, won’t they, weddings are finally back on the agenda, meaning we can finally get excited about wedding guest dresses. As always, Zara’s new in section has an abundance of choice to suit every guest.
In summer, the brand championed crayola brights and vibrant patterns, but there are plenty of neutrals for minimalism fans too. In autumn, Zara’s all about browns and other earth tones — perfect for the season.

I’ve always struggled with what to wear to the ceremony, so whenever I see dresses that work, I bookmark them immediately. There are so many awkward rules to abide by, like wearing tasteful gowns, dressing theme-appropriate and of course, not wearing white. They don’t sound too complicated, but it’s always when you’re looking that you can never find anything to wear.
I’ve found a bunch of beautiful gowns from Zara’s new in section that can double up as wedding guest dresses and a regular going-out dress all year round. What makes them so special is that none of them are dull or too trend-led, meaning they’ll last for years.
Some weddings don’t allow you to wear black, but if you ever get to attend one that does, I found a couple of options that are great for the occasion and beyond.
Since autumn is all about browns and marsala tones for Zara, there are also a couple of brown options — one has a cutout, the other with an interesting neck detail — for you to choose from.
There are many printed pieces too, so if you’re not one to shy from something bold, you’re going to find a loud, vibrant one that’s perfect for you.
