My mother-in-law recently enlisted my help finding something to wear to a beach wedding she was luckily invited to. Beach weddings are still formal events and casual beach wear is not acceptable (ie swimsuits, swimsuit coverups, shorts, ribbed cotton tank tops and rubber flip flops). Instead look for loose, airy summer dresses in dressy fabrics and bright colors paired with jeweled flip flops and sandals. Finish the look with an armful of bangles and long layered necklaces and don’t forget the sunscreen.
This long chiffon halter dress was made for a beach wedding. It’s dressy silhouette paired with a pink kaleidoscope print is beach perfect. Add these Kate Spade jeweled flat sandals. Dress available at whitehouseblackmarket.com and shoes available at zappos.com.
This light-as-a-breeze cotton dress in stunning aquamarine will look amazing paired with jeweled flip flops, long necklaces and bangles. Add this 3/4 length gray jacket for a bit more coverage as the evening progresses. Dress available at anthropologie.com and jacket available at whitehouseblackmarket.com. Shoes available at zappos.com.
I love this bohemian print dress cinched with a wide leather belt, gladiator sandals and a white jacket. Dress available at anthropologie.com, jacket available at whitehouseblackmarket.com, belt available at shopbop.com and shoes available at piperlime.com.
