What To Wear – A Summer Wedding

Summer Wedding Dress

My Twitter and Instagram bud Judy emailed me {it’s about time we connected!!!} in need of a little help. This girl is so dang fashionable on her own, that I was surprised and excited when she reached out to ask what “I” would wear to a summer wedding.

Summer weddings {such as my own beach wedding} are always fun and flirty, and the attire should include colorful lightweight fabrics that can breathe under the summer sun. It’s ok to show a little skin with a short or strapless dress, but I wouldn’t wear short AND strapless so that you don’t compete with the bridesmaids. And I always say that fashion rules were meant to be broken, with the exception of wearing white to a wedding. This is the only rule I keep in an attempt to not piss off the bride on her big day ;)

I thought I’d style the outfit above with a color palette that looks amazing against a summer tan – yellow, gold metallic, and nude. Get the look – yellow long sleeve wrap dress, gold hoop earrings, gold and white enamel chevron necklace, gold and white enamel geometric cuff, gold skinny belt, gold metal envelope clutch, gold chevron ring, gold metallic and nude suede heels.

By switching out two pieces, the dress and the necklace, you have a completely different look below with pink and turquoise pops of color. Get the look – hot pink v-neck skater dress, gold hoop earrings, bauble bar neon alaqua bib necklace, gold and white enamel geometric cuff, gold metal envelope clutch, gold chevron ring, gold metallic and nude suede heels.
