What to Wear:
Summer Wedding Edition

Need an outfit or two? Here's your guide to summer wedding guest dresses.

Casual Wedding

Shorter skirts and breathable fabrics define the breeziest summer dresses for weddings. Slip on strappy heels and you're done.

Style Tip:

Rose gold accessories add subtle
color to your effortless shift dress.

Semi-Formal Wedding

A soft maxi shape works beautifully in any setting that's between chill and elegant. Playful patterns and sparkly extras are welcome!

Style Tip:

Teardrop stones are trending in the jewelry world—they add a modern touch to a classic look.

Formal Wedding

For summer evening dresses, think dramatic skirts and luxurious fabrics. Then add crystals all around.

Style Tip:

Have you ever tried a print on a floral dress? Go for it! If you choose a grand silhouette and a rich fabric, it feels suitably fancy.

Destination Wedding

Going to a beach wedding? It's the perfect occasion for pastel shades and a little sun-catching shimmer.

Style Tip:

Blingy yet comfortable, statement sandals fit right in, especially if the party takes place on sand.

Mother of the Bride

A full-length dress in a lustrous fabric is perfect for the mother of the bride or groom. Consider a color that complements the bridal party.

Style Tip:

Take cues from the bride for how casual or formal to dress—then accessorize accordingly.
