Let’s face it. When it’s hot outside, the last thing we want to do is get dressed up. So choosing an outfit to attend a wedding this season can seem less than appealing. Don’t let the heat hold you back. Looking fashionable and formal without melting is possible. Skip the traditional Cinderella floor sweepers. Try out these 7 trendy, heat-proof outfits are perfect for summer weddings.
1. Floral Dress
This is a quintessential sunny weather staple, especially in bright colors. To make it more suitable for a formal event, go for a dress with a skater skirt that falls on the lower thigh or just above the knee. Pair with solid-colored clutch and heels. Keep the jewellery simple and to a minimum; they should complement the outfit, not clash with the bold prints.
2. Color Blocked Ensemble
Think Kim K or Emma Stone at the Met Gala circa 2012. Bold colors are always summer appropriate and shopping for separates is much easier. Light pink and magenta, yellow and emerald and cobalt and orange are some of our favorite color combos. Keep the rest of the outfit neutral with gold or nude heels and natural makeup.
3. Printed Maxi Dress
If short dresses aren’t your style, this outfit is the long summer alternative for you. They’re usually made from light fabrics like polyester and rayon to keep you cool. We love the dimension of a solid top and printed skirt. Bonus: You can get away with wearing your favourite sandals instead of heels!
4. Asymmetrical Wrap Dress
This dress is having a moment. The cool hemline is an attention grabber and the wrap hugs you in all the right places, no matter your body type. Add a belt to cinch and further accentuate your waistline. Finish with minimalist sandals for an effortless glam.
5. Sleek Jumpsuit
With this look you’ll be sure to sure to standout amongst the dress-clad guests. The structure of this piece lends to an air of sophistication. For a printed jumpsuit, keep the accessories neutral but for solid colors, statement jewellery add just the right amount of pizzazz. Complete with strappy sandals or wedges.
6. Top and Tulle Skirt
For those willing to take fashion risks, this whimsical look maybe just your style. Channel your inner midsummer night’s fairy in pastel color combinations. We especially love monochromatics. Dress up this look with everything sparkly! Glittery heels, sequined purses and statement jewellery take this outfit to whole new level.
7. White Dress
Hear us out on this one. Wearing white to a wedding may be an unwritten fashion crime but all white weddings are growing in popularity. If you’re lucky enough to get invited to one, dress it up with a healthy dose of color. Don’t be afraid to go bold! To make it more appropriate for a traditional wedding, add a leaf print blazer for a bright on-trend pop. You can even do a matching palm tree mani!
Wearing the hottest summer trends to a wedding this season is easier than you think. With these outfits you’ll stay cool and celebrate love in style.
