Our summer weekends are separated into two categories: those that require us to attend a wedding and those that don't. And, with venues now ranging from rooftops to barnyards to beaches — hello, elements! — getting dressing for these many nuptials comes with its own set of parameters. Sure, we know the basics: When grass is involved, four-inch heels are not. And, fancy rooftop receptions require a sartorial game that rises to the occasion. But, these guidelines are merely a jumping-off point. So, to get you through, we crafted five diverse, stylish outfits perfect for any ceremony this season.
That pastel short suit you bought for work last week? Let it play double-duty paired with colorful mid-heels and a striped camisole for a brand-new wedding-guest look that will blow the LBD out of the water. For quaint, barnyard BBQs (we love any shindig embracing fried chicken), keep casual but chic in a billowy, off-the-shoulder maxi-dress and wide-brim hat. Read ahead for even more clever tips and fashion advice for the big day(s) padding your calendar this summer.
