Thursday, 4th April 2017: If you’re anything like us, we’ll wager a guess that you have a calendar filled with weddings this summer. Probably a couple in May, one in June and July each, and two more during Labor Day Weekend alone: The marathon of summer nuptials can get exhausting—and they’re not even here yet. Check this out of 5 Dress Code Decoded:
Arguably, casual weddings are the hardest to dress for: Jeans and a tee certainly won’t do, but you don’t want to show up in a cocktail dress when everyone looks two degrees of separation from a pair of sneakers.
Instead, opt for a flowy dress that you’ll feel comfortable eating and drinking in—most casual summer shindigs have buffets, rather than sit-down dinners—and a pair of sandals that you’ll actually wear again. Top it off with a statement bag and simple jewelry.
The good news about “beach formal” weddings is that the beach can only be *so* formal. (We’re pretty sure they tack on that last part to make sure nobody shows up in a bathing suit coverup.)
At any rate, a swingy midi dress in a poplin fabric paired with a thick heel is a great foundation, and here’s your excuse to bring the rattan bag you’ve been wanting to show off. Oh, and take it from someone who’s been to enough beach weddings during golden hour to know better by now: Bring sunglasses.
Cocktail attire doesn’t have to be synonymous with little black dress. This color-blocked number will stand out among the rest of the guests—in a good way.
Black Tie Optional
We love the idea of swapping out your traditional black gown with something more playful for a black-tie optional affair, like this jumpsuit. Pair it with an ultra-feminine bag, geometric earrings, and some shoes you’ll be able to walk in.
The most formal of all dress codes—save for White Tie, which is usually reserved for Gala-like affairs—black tie weddings mean you’re pulling out all the stops. Go for a demure short-sleeve gown with a high slit, a traditional minaudiere, and a swipe of red lipstick to truly get into character. Nobody has to know your earrings cost less than $10.
