Wedding season is already in full swing. Admittedly, it is one of my favorite times of year. I love everything about weddings and the excuse to dress up is just icing on the cake. Here are a few rules to remember when dressing for a wedding this season.
1.) The unforgivable sin. It’s not about you! Don’t steal the show by wearing white or something that distracts in any way from the bride on her big day. Also steer clear of wedding colors to avoid being mistaken as a member of the bridal party. If the wedding colors are a mystery to you, patterns are a safe bet – love the understated elegance of this print.
2.) Don’t bare it all. Sure, weddings are a great opportunity to flaunt your favorite feature but do yourself a favor and stick to just one feature – either your legs, shoulders, or back (love this dress). To avoid going too revealing up top, an illusion neckline is a subtle, sexy look.
3.) Pay attention to detail. Check the invite for clues on dress code. For black-tie affairs, the sky (and the knee) is the limit – avoid any hem too far above the knee. I love the cut and detailing on this dress. For beach, light colors and flowing fabrics are key; love this classic chiffon dress.
When it doubt, play it safe somewhere in the middle. While long dresses can typically read more formal, a jersey or cotton material (like this one-shoulder one) helps it read slightly more casual. On the other hand, a cocktail dress with embellishments like beading or lace can translate a dress with a shorter hem into something more formal.
