Lucky are the few who do not have a packed schedule of summer weddings. The rest of us (whose accountants are shaking their heads in despair), are staring down the barrel of a lot of spending. All the more reason to find a versatile dress you can recycle at each event, with the addition of a few smart accessories you probably already own. Here, how to style one dress for four very different weddings.
One Dress, Styled Four Ways
Styled For A Destination Wedding By The Water
Whether the ceremony is right on the sand or perched high on a cliff—destination weddings call for practical footwear. Style a vibrant dress with metallic flats to navigate the terrain with grace and be sure to add a wide-brim hat and sunnies to stay cool in the glaring sun.
Styled For A Cocktail Wedding In The City
For a fancy city wedding, spectacular accessories are key. Look for a pair of tassel-detail sandals, statement-making earrings and a jewel-tone clutch to pair with an anything-but-boring red cocktail dress.
Styled For A Traditional Wedding In The Country
Cover your shoulders with an embellished cardigan for a more traditional ceremony. If the venue is outside, veer on the side of caution and wear block heel sandals that will work on a grassy lawn or garden setting. Finish with a coordinating lady bag for a polished, put-together ensemble.
Styled For A Day-Time Wedding At Town Hall
When in doubt, always go for sleek extras when attending a city ceremony. For town hall, you can't go wrong with a sharp blazer and black ankle-strap pumps. Infuse a bit of personality with festive cat-eye sunglasses.
