What to wear to a casual summer wedding
Wedding season is upon us -- do you know what you’ll be wearing? If you have any casual nuptials to attend (backyard, outdoor), we’ve sourced some stylish options that look great, without being too over the top for a more laid-back affair.
Make a summer wedding splash in this simple yet stylish pleated silk dress with a full skirt and scoop neck (madewell.com, $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.
We were instantly smitten with this lovely lacy frock in a get-noticed shade of red (anthropologie.com, $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.
Step out in 1950s-inspired style with this full skirted dress covered in bright yellow blooms (oasis-stores.com, $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.
We love the simplicity of this eye-catching V-neck shift dress covered in sequin and pearl embellishments (topshop.com, $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 (asos.com, $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.
