I have been surprised by the number of recent inquiries about dresses to wear to weddings — a reminder that love finds a way, even in the face of a global pandemic. Some of you are attending ultra-small, family-only celebrations; others are socially distancing during backyard gatherings; and some of us are getting dolled up for watching via Zoom.
Regardless, you’d be surprised at how good you will feel putting on a formal dress and some heels. A remembrance of things past…
Below, my top picks for wedding guest dresses (or dresses for any special occasion this winter!):
THIS CRYSTAL-EMBELLISHED VELVET SELF-PORTRAIT, WHICH HAS AN ALESSANDRA RICH VIBE (!!!) AND I DIG THE NECKLINE
THIS TEXTURED KNIT DRESS (ON SUPER SALE) WOULD BE SO ELEGANT WITH PEARL ACCESSORIES
THIS STUNNING NAVY ZIMMERMANN (ON SALE — I OWN IN A GOLD/YELLOW COLOR AND THIS DRESS IS SOOOO GOOD ON)
THIS ON-TREND DARK FLORAL (SLEEVES!)
WOW THIS DOTTED MESH DRESS (UNDER $100)
LOVE THE FALL COLOR OF THIS SP
Fun heels for a formal outfit: these by The Row (on super sale, have coveted for like two seasons, and also available in a solid black), these LRs (also on sale and also available in a higher height — the champagne colorway is such a great, versatile but dressy neutral), these satin or velvet slipper mules are just SO CHIC I CAN’T, my longtime and all-time favorite evening sandal, super fun disco ball shoes, and these feathered friends.
I shared some super fun pearl accessories here that might be the perfect accent to your look, too.
P.S. If you’re the bride, I update this post regularly with my latest bridal finds. Newest addition: this darling mini, which would be so amazing as a getaway dress or bachelorette dress.
P.P.P.S. How do you read?
