Wedding season is upon us, which means it's time to look for an outfit.
Finding the right dress as a wedding guest is a challenge, which results in last-minute shopping and ending up with a frock you don't really love.
To help you plan in advance, we've gathered minis, midis and maxis perfect for the occasion according to the type of wedding you may be attending. Because depending on the venue and vibe of the wedding, the dress code can vary from casual to formal and somewhere in between.
Ahead, discover the chicest styles (you'll actually want to wear again) based on the type of wedding you're heading to.
Most likely the ceremony will be by the beach, so you can keep it pretty casual. We suggest going for a billowy maxi that exudes vacation vibes. Style with flat sandals (easy to walk in the sand!) and fun earrings to elevate the look.
This is the time to dress up and try the trends you've always wanted to wear. Opt for cocktail dresses that feature fashion-forward details à la voluminous sleeves, an asymmetric hem and an '80s-inspired double-breasted tux design.
This means formal, so full-length evening dresses are a must. To avoid looking prom-like, opt for modern silhouettes that embody understated glamour. Accessorize with statement accessories such as glitzy drop earrings and a fun mini bag.
