’Tis the season: the summer of weddings has begun, and so has the hunt for that perfect, classy outfit. With the heat on and the sun shining, who wants to wear black? Although it’s a classy and safe bet for any occasion, when it comes to summer weddings — floral and pastels, two-piece elegant looks, and breezy maxi gowns are what’s in. If you’re on the hunt for something special, these 5 wedding styles will inspire even the simplest of tastes.
1. The Two-Piece
Crop tops aren’t just for sunny days and nightlife outings anymore — now, designers are taking this look and turning it into wedding chic by pairing it with a high-waisted skirt. The Two in Love Set, a matching set with a sleeveless crop top and high-waisted pencil skirt, features a beautiful eyelet fabric in a grayish-green tone — the perfect summer wedding look.
2. The Breezy High-Slit Maxi
Maxis have had their fair share of popularity in the limelight, from boho beach style brands like Show Me Your Mumu and Flynn Skye to elegant high fashion designers like Chloé and Roberto Cavalli. Who says you can’t bring this look to a wedding? Adding a high slit and an elegant neckline transforms the Dreaming in Florals Maxi to a stunning addition to any wedding wardrobe.
3. The Wrap Dress
Summer weddings don’t mean short sleeve everything — for those cooler summer nights, a wrap dress is key. The Gardens of Lavender Dress, with a V-neckline, elastic waistband and wrap-tie belt, is a beautiful expression of floral design with a subtle lavender print. A high slit and white fabric keeps the dress cool; but, if want to keep things short, go for the mid-thigh length version.
4. The Mustard Look
Mustard is in: from yellow-toned accents to mustard accessories and clothing, this color is on our list as one of the most complimentary colors to any style. Whether it’s a summer wedding, or a day out on the harbour, the Willow Maxi with its lace bodice, plunging V-neckline, stunning floral embroidery, and scalloped-hem sleeves is your ticket to stealing looks from wedding go-ers. Don’t worry, ladies… this one has a (partial) lining for a classy, but sexy feel — and, a scalloped hemline at the bottom. Hello, gorgeous! *Also comes in black for a sleek look.
5. The Pocket Dress
Everyone needs a pocket dress — whether it’s casual or meant for the finer occasions, adding pleating and pockets to a dress can transform the look instantly. The Find Your Love Dress, a nude variation, features a deep neckline with a crossover, thin straps, double side slits and a keyhole back design. Best paired with a red lipstick and cream pumps.
