A few weeks ago we kicked off our full roster of summer weddings at the most gorgeous botanic gardens. The affair was black tie and had me stumped for a while on what to wear. Every season carries with it different wardrobe requirements. So what may be cocktail dressing in winter is really black tie in summer. What I settled on was this silk lace gown with a front slit and sweet bustier buttons. It felt just whimsical enough to match our floral surroundings while still elegant enough for the upscale occasion.
And, looking forward to other celebrations over the next few months, I pulled together some of my favorite looks for summer wedding guest attire. To make things clearer, they’re broken down by formality: black tie, cocktail, beach.
