Are you invited to your best friend’s wedding? Or an elegant party? Still not know what to wear to a spring or summer wedding? I have lots of ideas to suit any special occasion. I know that the wedding season has just started, but I’m sure you already marked down several events you need to attend, so I’ve gathered up a selection of dresses that you can wear to any spring wedding or summer wedding this year. For cold days, you can always prepare a black blazer with you! Find more tips here: How to Wear a Blazer.
Searching for a dress for a spring wedding or summer wedding can be a grueling process: you need to visit dozens of stores, check out hundreds of catalogs, you need to attend fitting after fitting (and just think how sometimes even a pair of jeans is complicated to try on). Choosing a dress is probably the most difficult step in the whole process of attending a spring wedding. Sometimes, a parade of celebrities on a red carpet can be a better inspiration than any catalog.
So, I’ve decided to help you and give you some unique inspirations, and this year’s parade at the Oscar’s seemed, at times, a rehearsal for a chic spring wedding.
But before we dive in, here are 3 things you should consider before picking out the perfect spring wedding dress:
You don’t have to wear a long dress, (only if you really like this design or the dress code demands it). The key is to pay attention to the invitation’s dress code specifications. It is important to know whether the event will take place on grass or in a less formal setting – very long dresses with trains or stiletto heels are not particularly suited for such events.
When you’re looking for that gorgeous dress, always rely on high quality fabrics and spectacular details. Make sure that it suits you perfectly, and don’t forget that complicated modifications shouldn’t be done at the tailor around the corner. And don’t forget to choose comfortable shoes, or at least to break them in before the event. It’s the only way you can dance the night away!
Accessories are very important. For a dress with a simple cut, in a single color, choose a statement necklace or a pair of chandelier earrings. If you’re dress has ruffles or embroidery, your jewelry should be discreet. Always choose a perfect hairstyle and makeup that suits you!
Just take a look at the gorgeous Dior dress that Charlize Theron wore at the Oscar’s. You can also rock a couture dress like this at any spring wedding.
Cate Blanchet is the epitome of high fashion. Take some inspiration from her beaded Armani Prive dress for an unforgettable appearance.
Navy is really becoming a thing this season. Take some inspiration from Sandra Bullock’s draped little number or from Amy Adam’s smooth look.
For a foxy approach try Julie’s Delpy’s sizzling Jenny Packham dress.
Be bold and choose a dress in a strong color, just like Jennifer Lawrence. A straight lined column dress is always very fashionable.
For a spring wedding it’s best to wear a long-sleeved dress or at least to have a bolero at hand. Spring is pretty, but very unpredictable. Take a cue from Glen Close and match your dress with an elegant bolero.
Angelina Jolie’s Elie Saab dress can also be a great choice. The beading adds the perfect touch of glam and it’s beautifully complemented by the neckline.
Penelope Cruz can do no wrong. So she is the best inspiration for an elegant event. Pale pink chiffon and a black ribbon belt is the perfect combination for a modern and effortless look.
