Go-To Wedding Outfit
Wedding season is here! It could possibly be my favorite time of year. I mean, who doesn’t like dressing up, dancing and enjoying amazing food and drink with friends and family? If you’ve been invited to a wedding and you’re not in the wedding party, you’ll have to find something to wear. The following is my go-to wedding outfit.
There are a few simple rules to keep in mind when shopping for an outfit to wear to a wedding:
- Don’t wear a white dress. This is the most important rule to follow, unless you were asked to wear white. Let’s keep all of the attention on the bride, not you. Plus, there are plenty of other colors to choose from!
- Dress for the occasion. Sometimes wedding invites will include a specific dress code. If so, make sure you follow it. For black tie, you should wear a formal floor-length gown. For dressy casual, you could wear a skirt with a nice top or a dress. For cocktail, wear a little black dress.
- Don’t show all of your goods at the same time. Stick to highlighting just one of your assets. For instance, if you have great legs, pick a dress that hits mid-thigh or slightly longer. If you want to show off your back, cover up your chest. You get the idea.
