I have two rules for weddings: no white and no risqué. White is an obvious one. The risqué is because good or bad attention, no attention should be taken away from the beauty in white. Y'all would be shocked at how many times women show up in the WRONG dress! Pretty simple, right?
Unless you are told straight up, it is usually hard to know how dressy a wedding is going to be. I have always felt it is better to be over dressed than under so I always keep things simple, but chic for weddings.
The best way to look simple and chic I believe is a fabulous maxi. I know y'all know I love maxis, but they really are perfect for this occasion. With the right accessories, maxis can rock a summer casual look or a semi formal look. Also this is the perfect time to try out a colored maxi and not just your black :). Let me show you:
These are all from F21!
Now if the wedding is a common wedding or outdoor wedding, I would pair any of these with one of the following necklaces (all found on Bridier Baubles)...it will look very romantic and chic, while not being too over dressed. Add some flat metallic sandals or fab wedges and viola!
If the wedding is more formal or you are just not sure...I would wear any of these...
Yes they are all the same style (all from Riffraff), but I think this layered style is so chic and classy on! Put on some heels and grab a clutch and you will look like a million bucks! Here I did it for a semi-formal charity event and got many compliments and I felt dressed for the occasion...
So that is my take on wedding attire. A shorter dress would look fabulous too, but there is something about a maxi that is ethereal and romantic. What do y'all think? Let me know if you try this outfit soon!
