3 Perfect Outfits For Every Type Of Wedding

We don’t know about you, but we look at weddings as joyous opportunities to dine, dance, celebrate…and show off our impressive style. Don’t get us wrong — nobody’s trying to steal the spotlight from the lady in white, but a girl’s got to hold her own.

Which is why we’ve put together three killer outfits perfect for this season’s happiest fetes. Whether you’ve RSVP’ed to a casual afternoon affair or an over-the-top soirée, these carefully crafted ensembles will definitely put you on the best dressed guest list (bridesmaids totally vote on that sort of thing). Now, that’s something we can all toast to!


Black Tie — Keep it classy with a chic floor-length dress and luxe fur shawl, but don’t forget to add a sexy, strappy shoe and a cheeky wink (hello, red, lipped clutch!).
