Fall nuptials are looming closer. When you’re faced with a sea of save-the-dates and on the lookout for perfect wear-to-any-wedding dresses, don’t panic. I’ve put together a list of outfits for every dress code. And if you’re worrying you’ll have to wear the same dress more than once, now’s the time to freshen things up. From moderately skin-baring cuts and breezy silhouettes to plunging necklines with a back-tie twist, the goal is to look sleek and appropriate without trying too hard. Prepare to be the best-dressed guest at your next wedding!
1. Sleeveless Lace Dress from ERANZI
Floral lace is my go-to fabric for an immediate formal feel, and I’m in love with this spaghetti lace dress that is dressy enough for the “black-tie admired” dress code. The neutral shade and sweetheart neckline make it incredibly wearable.
2. Printed Maxi Dress from Fundae
If you’d like to go graphic and colorful, stick to a simple silhouette like this sleeveless maxi design. I love the allover baroque-inspired print. This piece is especially suited for daytime dressy affairs.
3. One-Shoulder Flowing Maxi Dress from HOTCAKE
For a more relaxed ceremony on the beach, the floaty feel of this floor-grazing one-shoulder maxi dress can’t be beat. Imagine how this two-tone darling would look seaside! Dress up this simple, chic piece with layers of jewelry for a semiformal event.
4. Monochrome Floral Dress from Salisha
One thing to keep in mind when choosing a monochrome look is the old rule of not wearing solely white or black to a wedding. This adorable sheer floral shirtdress mixes both colors. The dressy and feminine pattern balances with the subtle palette. Break it up with bright heels and a sparkling clutch handbag.
5. Knit Midi Dress from ode’
A shoulder-baring midi dress is a failsafe and totally manageable option for going flirty at a casual affair. The ruffle layer gives this monochrome number an extra girlie touch, making it perfect for seaside cocktail events.
6. Off-Shoulder Ruffled Bodycon Dress from UUZONE
Ditto for the extra girlie impact from ruffles! This vivid bodycon dress is great with gold-tone accompaniments for fancier evening parties!
7. Chiffon Wrap Dress from DABAGIRL
This alluring wrap dress, printed in allover blooms, comes in a pretty navy color complemented by pastels. I’d wear it to cocktail weddings, from the beach to the grand ballroom.
8. Sheath Dress with Cutout Detail from DABAGIRL
The classic cocktail dress silhouette is cleverly freshened up by a striking cutout at the waist of this navy number, with soft ruching all over for added textural appeal. The understated style provides a wonderful backdrop for statement baubles.
9. V-Neck Floral Chiffon Dress from Cherryville
Another versatile floaty number, this V-neck chiffon dress offers a unique look with its effortless silhouette, flattering ruffles and nipped waist.
10. Wrap Front Floral Playsuit from DABAGIRL
Playsuits are a chic and easy option for the wedding season. Is the wedding guaranteed to have a rocking dance floor? In this flattering wrap-front onesie, you can bust a serious move without worrying about a thing.
