With wedding season slowly coming upon us, we round up the best looks to wear to every type of party you'll ever get invited to.
Open Back Coral Print Silk Chiffon Gown, Valentino ($7,990); Isabella Laser-Cut Leather Calf Hair Clutch Bag in Pearl, Marchesa ($2,795); Chandelier Swarovski Crystal Thong Sandal, Rene Caovilla ($1,285). Neiman Marcus, 6 Oak Brook Center, Oak Brook, 630-572-1500
Whether at a barn, country farmhouse, or cottage, a rustic wedding allows you to wear the most romantic pieces you can find. For an extremely dreamy ensemble, choose this Valentino maxi gown with coral prints, a dazzling sandal, and a charming lace clutch.
Considered the most formal of all wedding dress codes, the white-tie affair calls for evening gowns and tons of sparkles. We suggest this one-shoulder Lanvin gown, Jimmy Choo box clutch, and Cinderella-esque heels from Gianvito Rossi.
For a more casual wedding dress code, consider an easy outfit with nude accessories. This Narciso Rodriguez pastel frock will let you dance freely, while the block-heeled Givenchy peep toes offer both comfort and style.
If you're going to church, dress in more modest attire without forgoing style—something like this dramatic black dress with fanned-out sleeves and a cutout back worn with gold ankle pumps and an eye-catching floral bag.
When the venue is outdoors, a main concern is balancing elegance with practicality. To achieve both, opt for a bright sleeveless dress like this silk frock from Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, a champagne-colored clutch, and chunky-heeled sandals, which will prevent you from getting stuck in the ground.
