With wedding season beyond being in full swing, you’ve probably been invited to your fair share of casual, outdoor ceremonies. While normally you would reach for something more formal for the occasion, these events call for looks that are a little more laid-back. But how do you make sure you keep it cool while not overdoing your outfit?
Celebrity stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott provide their valuable advice, below!
This is a look that’s playful, but can be great for a wedding. Go for silky fabrications that drape, and pair it with a dressier shoe and nice accessories.
Proenza Schouler Fuchsia Suede Small Lunch Bag Clutch ($765)
We love the statement-making colour of this little bag.
Everything feels more casual with flats, so don’t be afraid to pull out a more dramatic dress, then dress the look down with simple accessories that are more daytime-appropriate. A nice, flat strappy sandal and your everyday layers of simple necklaces and dainty earrings is perfect.
Zimmermann Strapless Drape Maxi Dress, Available in Black ($455)
The body-con bodice on this dress makes it ultra-feminine.
Jennifer Meyer Gold Je T'aime Pendant Necklace ($675)
Melissa Joy Manning 14-Karat Gold Opal Earrings ($210)
We're very into opals right now.
Pair a structured skirt with a cute top. Try a high-waisted flare skirt or sharp pencil, and tuck in a little tank or cap-sleeve top.
Style a relaxed trouser in a lightweight, dressy fabric with an easy camisole. Wear the look with a little feminine heel and a dressy clutch.
10 Crosby Derek Lam Pleated Silk Trouser in Black & White ($245)
They say you can't wear white to a wedding—but black stripes make it totally acceptable.
