The PEOPLE StyleWatch team collectively is attending a lot of weddings this summer, which means we’ve subsequently spent a lot of time thinking about what to wear to them all.

We ordinarily reach for something pretty basic that we can jazz up with jewelry (isn’t that the universal wedding guest dress rule?) but two photos we’ve seen lately make us think it may be time to up our game.

Both Cameron Diaz (at Lake Bell’s wedding) and Pippa Middleton (in Tabitha Webb at the wedding of Lady Melissa Percy and Thomas van Straubenzee) reached for similar, graphic-print peplum dresses with sleeves.

Each let the black-and-white print speak mostly for itself, though they each also chose one standout accessory to finish the look — Middleton chose a bold, feather-and-pearl accented hat while Diaz went for black-and-gold platform sandals.
