5 Perfect Outfits for Attending a Beach Wedding
Wedding guests are always on the search for the perfect outfit to wear to a wedding. In honor of hot summer sun and cool sea breezes, here are five outfits (with dresses!) for attending a beach wedding.
Perfect Peach: This ensemble consists of a simple asymmetrical dress in a sheer, lightweight fabric, ideal for staying cool in the summer heat. Also, the dress is pale pink and has a fishtail hem – two big trends for Summer 2012. Accessorize with a hat and sunglasses that will block the sun’s damaging rays, plus high wedge shoes that are comfortable for walking in sand and slenderize the figure. Add a quilted chain bag in the same nude shade and you’re set!
Bright + Black: This outfit starts with a bold and brightly color-blocked cotton maxi dress. Maxi dresses are always a chic option for a summer wedding guest. The accessories like sunglasses, earrings, bag and wedge shoes are all in classic black since, as everyone knows, black goes with EVERYTHING. Ethnic style bracelets and earrings give the look a touch of boho-chic that’s perfect for the beach.
Out to Sea: Bring the ever-stylish nautical look to the beach with this sailor striped dress. The very “ladylike” cut accentuates the female figure, and the accessories – floopy hat, classic quilted Chanel bag, ankle-strap high heels (only if you’re not walking on sand) – complete the classically stylish look. Finish this style with big, round Prada sunglasses to protect your precious eyes.
Wildly Chic: This chic look is perfect for a glamorous wedding in a mansion on the beach. Bright contrasting colors with a touch of leopard print are the perfect combination. Add a bit of Tangerine Tango makeup and this outfit will not go unnoticed.
Tropi-cool: If the wedding is more relaxed and the weather is über warm, try this trendy tropical look. The dress in “natural print” from Topshop goes great with flat gladiator sandals which are perfect for walking on sand AND looking cool. Complete the look with a handbag and sunglasses in blue to contrast with the rest of the look. Don’t forget an XL hat for taking care of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
