More Wedding Wear Trends - White Suits and Separates

Seeing all the latest styles for wedding wear is one of my favorite parts of working in the wedding industry. Dresses obviously get the most attention, and I posted about them a few weeks ago, but there also are some really fantastic white and ivory suits and separates. If you’ve been following the 2019/2020 Wedding Wear Trends Pinterest board, you’ll have seen that there is an abundance of choices if you aren’t a big fan of dresses. Check out these amazing pants, skirts, tops, and jackets here in a variety of white and ivories.

Suits

These jacket necklines are right on trend for fall 2019 - spring 2020. You could always add a blouse or cami if this neckline is a little too plunging for you.

And I love the lace tuxedo stripe on the pants of this suit.

This is an older style from Ellie Saab, but the sleek lines really work with the current minimalism trends.

Billy Porter’s 2019 Oscars tuxedo dress (which is an homage to ballroom icon, Legendary Grandfather Hector Xtravaganza of the House of Xtravaganza) inspired many ballgown-style tuxedos. He also rocked a wide-leg tuxedo that night for his hosting duties that is an equally chic inspiration. Actually, pretty much anything Bill wears is amazing fashion inspiration.

The lace epaulettes give this one a slightly military look.

Or you can rock this full skirted jumpsuit from Randi Rham, who, coincidentally, designed the suit and cape that Billy Porter wore to the Golden Globes. It has an awesome bomber jacket you can add to the look.

If you aren’t into the ballgown skirt, try some of these less full looks, like a tuxedo style jacket with a detachable train/skirt.

Anybody would look stunning in this Alexander McQueen dress. The cowl collar reminds me of Billy Porter’s suit lapel.

And then there is this stunner. It does have a bit of black, but it is so sleek looking.

Separates

I love the multi-function of wedding separates - so may options and ways to mix and match styles. They also offer a great option for sizing without having to do crazy alterations for those of us who don’t fit into the crazy cookie cutters of wedding and fashion sizing.

Catherine Deane has some gorgeous separates to chose from that pair well with each other or with other designers, both as a suit look and as skirts and tops. Some even look like dresses and jumpsuits.

The Monique top is gorgeous with layers of glistening pearl beads, lined with sheer silk chiffon, and would look beautiful with a skirt or pants.

And speaking of pants, I am in love with the Aurelia pants. (You can also buy at BHLDN, which is coming to Bakery Square in East Liberty Pittsburgh this week - July 26!)

Another fabulous pair of wide legged pants. I think I have a thing for them.

Sebastian Cruz Couture is another designer with fantastic mix and match separates with a flare of bold style. This Honeycomb jacket’s texture adds such a luxe detail.

SuitSupply also offers a wide range of tux and suit separates, like this gorgeous white one.

If you want less subtle details, I love the ruffle train on this jacket.

And, I think this may actually be a jump suit, but these pants are so fabulous I had to include them.

This linen jacket and pants are a great option for a summer wedding.

The lace detailing on the shoulders of this cami is to die for and would make a great surprise for when you take off the jacket at the reception.

Resources

In researching this post, I found some really interesting articles about women who chose not to wear dresses for their weddings, gender fluid wedding fashion, and the impact of the Met Gala on gender fluid and gender bending fashion.
