5 Perfect Outfits For Your Next Wedding Invite

Spring is coming, and with it a whole host of wedding invites requesting your attendance. Surprising? No. Stressful? Kind of. First up, you have your cousin's ceremony, which is a super-convenient three-hour drive away. Then, your college roommate is getting hitched to her long-time S.O. at a swanky citified venue. And, just when you thought you'd have a free weekend to yourself, a last-minute e-vite (from that low-key couple who are so above big to-dos) finds its way into your inbox. Each of these affairs is as unique as the couple tying the knot, and your closet is, well, ill-prepared. We're here with the assist and five outfits made for wedding season: They're classy, polished, and full of charm. (If you're looking for something black-tie, we have that, too.) The High-Neck Dress
Far from stiff-looking, & Other Stories' high-neck dress is elegantly draped for a soft, feminine touch. The mint color is also ideal for balmy spring days. Instead of playing up the pastel factor, give the rest of your look some edge by pairing it with a black lace moto jacket, striped heels, and a graphic wristlet.
The Embellished Bomber
In the springtime, you should have a jacket handy when hanging outdoors — you never know when a brisk chill will swoop in. An embellished bomber, like this one from Noon by Noor, will keep you warm and add tons of quirk to your simple black-and-white outfit. With an outfit MVP this good, we know what you'll be cheers-ing when you raise your glass of bubbly.
The Quirky Pencil Skirt
A lot of us fall back on our LBDs whenever a formal occasion comes up. But, you shouldn't discount a great pencil skirt and blouse combination just because it takes a few extra steps. You'll look every bit as put together, if not more so, than the black-dress-clad friends of friends you're forced to sit with.
The Elevated Trench Coat
A great trench coat — the kind that seems made for you — will stick around in your closet for years to come. Here's how to bring it out for alfresco nuptials: Pair it with a flirty drop-waist dress (in florals or other fun prints) and a pair of shades. Pro tip: Mind the grass; wear flats.
The Flouncy Blouse
Maybe you're not a dress-wearing girl or you're looking to change up your wedding-outfit M.O. Whatever the case, a black pant can always be counted upon to help out in occasion-dressing scenarios. Here, we opted for a culotte and a flouncy peplum top — the billowy silhouette is dynamic without feeling over-the-top. Fancy tassel pumps and a mismatched clutch provide the finishing touches.
