Late summer and early fall spell peak wedding season — which means you might soon be spending more than a little time scouring your closet for your best not-white, not-too-revealing, grandparent-and-dancefloor-appropriate outfits. Look no further: Waterside Shops presents five on-trend outfits for top-to-toe wedding style this season.
The midi dress
Colorblocking in summer brights is a sunny way to celebrate love. Against the endlessly elegant centerpoint of Ralph Lauren’s spaghetti-strapped midi dress in electric blue, splash yellow Calvin Klein Cammy sandals from Nordstrom and a Nina pouch from Anthropologie, by St. Xavier, whose ethical designs are handcrafted by a team of Indian artisans.
The maxi dress
With its chic shape and red colorblock zing, this ultra-flattering Michael Kors wrap dress is both demure and striking. Pair with Jimmy Choo’s perfectly formed, pure-white Annie sandals, also at Nordstrom, and a Michael Kors Raven bag in the finest of leathers and the brightest of whites.
The golden girl
Tory Burch’s new-season golden dress is beautified with crystals, beads, and moonstones: the perfectly romantic style for a wedding. For all-out Cleopatra glam, add Lilly Pulitzer’s golden wedge heels and the luscious, fine leather Kika bag by Patricia Al’Kary at Canipelli Firenze.
The boho vibe
Relaxed or alternatively high-fashion weddings are a great opportunity to put some personality into your outfit — and if personality is what you want, go straight to the icon of maximalism, Gucci. Pair the flower-embroidered sandal with a cute clash: JOHNNY WAS’ velvet, Emilia Was flower-embroidered mini dress. Complete with a fabulous Salvatore Ferragamo beaded clutch.
A floral dress is a wedding classic. Add a modern edge with bright color-matching and pattern-clashing: Carolina Herrera’s floral sheath dress, from Saks Fifth Avenue, couldn’t be chicer with Kate Spade New York’s embroidered heels and a red Furla clutch, also from Saks Fifth Avenue.
