what to wear: summer wedding

Wedding season is here, and naturally, I'm always thinking about what I'm going to wear. Nuptials are all about the bride and groom, however, so no need to steal the show on their special day.

The answer to all my summer weddings is an easy silk slip dress (or sheath or kaftan) paired with heeled mules — perfect for outdoor weddings and all night dancing! A silk dress is timeless and chic, and flatters every body type. You can also adjust to the dress code with a simple change in footwear (or go barefoot for a beach ceremony), depending on the venue. The best part of all? You can spend as little as $100 or thousands on a silk-satin dress and still look and feel fantastic.
