Perfect pleats

Make a summer wedding splash in this simple yet stylish pleated silk dress with a full skirt and scoop neck (, $198). We’re partial to the gray (understated yet sophisticated), but this pretty, party-ready frock also comes in fun, flirty fuchsia. Pair with chunky heel sandals, chandelier earrings and a statement cocktail ring to complete the look.

Lacy love

We were instantly smitten with this lovely lacy frock in a get-noticed shade of red (, $328). The vibrant hue is balanced perfectly by the almost Victorian-inspired design. We especially like the flattering square neckline and flared cap sleeves. Wear this wedding-ready dress with nude pumps and understated accessories.

Flirty florals

Step out in 1950s-inspired style with this full skirted dress covered in bright yellow blooms (, $77). The high neckline gives the dress a more polished look, while the skinny belt cinching the waist creates a flattering shape. Pair with bold red or blue heels and a solid clutch to match for a playful yet elegant summer wedding style.

Stylish shift

We love the simplicity of this eye-catching V-neck shift dress covered in sequin and pearl embellishments (, $200). The peachy hue is perfect for summer and the subtle sparkle makes this dress stand out from the crowd. Pair with wedge sandals in a neutral hue and keep accessories to a minimum since this piece makes a mark all on its own.

Pretty polka dots

Dare to stand out in style with this pretty strapless polka dot dress with a high fitted waist (, $66). The midi length adds sophistication, as do the white dots on the navy background. Pair this fun summer frock with a skinny belt, oversize clutch and stacked heel pumps.
