Wedding season is officially here, and discerning what to wear can be a real challenge. From laid-back beach ceremonies to black-tie extravaganzas, summer weddings come in all shapes, colors and sizes, causing guests to fret about their wardrobe options. For some occasions, a simple linen dress will do the trick, but for a formal affair, a silk gown may be in order. Today, we give you seven knockout looks, from casual to dressy, that work for all different types of weddings.
This style of dress, which is cinched at the waist, is flattering on nearly every figure. We’ve paired it with textured earrings and a seafoam green clutch for extra flair. This ensemble is appropriate for daytime and evening weddings, and both indoor and outdoor ceremonies.
Here, we’ve chosen a dress with a traditional cut and pattern that would be appropriate for church ceremonies. The dangle earrings bring attention to the pretty scalloped neckline, while a neutral heel makes the overall look more formal. A simple white clutch is the finishing touch.
This bohemian ensemble is perfect for outdoor weddings. The red linen dress is breezy and light, perfect for balmy summer weather. The espadrille-style wedges are chic, but provide comfort and support on grass or sand. Because this dress is a solid color, we introduced pattern and texture through the accessories.
A well-fitted jumpsuit can be hip and edgy, making it a perfect choice for a modern wedding. Chunky heels and delicate gold jewelry dress up the outfit. If you’d like to elevate the look further, think about trading the handbag for a metallic clutch or perhaps fastening your hair in an updo.
This outfit is feminine, elegant and timeless. Soft, pastel hues work great with both fair and dark skin tones. The length of the dress makes this look more formal, especially when paired with jeweled accessories and strappy heels. It’s a delicate ensemble that could be worn to daytime and nighttime ceremonies.
This structured, purple dress is incredibly flattering. We are crazy about the detail around the neckline, and the lace overlay gives it a lovely, vintage appeal. If you add diamond (or faux diamond) accessories, black heels and a handbag, it can definitely be worn to cocktail, semiformal or even black-tie weddings.
This look is ideal for black-tie or white-tie affairs. Navy is a great color on just about everybody, and the simple silhouette of this gown allows you to really punch up the accessories. Here, we have added touches of silver, gray and gold to complement the blue and add some panache.
Enjoy the wedding, whatever style you choose!
