Etiquette: Guest Dress Code

When attending an event or wedding there is always the question of... "WHY!... WHAT ON EARTH MIGHT I WEAR!?"

Okay, maybe it is a little less dramatic.

The truth is, the attire you choose says a lot about how you view the event you are attending. No one wants a guest to come to their fancy party wearing jeans. For goodness sakes, this took some time and effort to plan! So next time you step out, think about what your wardrobe is saying to your host. The only thing better than a humble hostess, is a gracious guest. 

We have put together some fashionable favorites that you are sure to love and that are sure to not only say, "Thank you ever so much for the invitation dahhhling" but, "I know... I look FAB!" 

Black Tie Affair:
Above: This STUNNING belted, floral silk number is a jaw dropper. 
Below: Horizontal stripes at the waist bring in the midsection creating a beautiful shape. This dress could be worn by anyone at any age!

This flowing beaded gown is formal yet fun. Thin straps attach to a blouson bodice and a nude color scheme sets a very modern tone. Make it spunky with a bold shoe, or classic with swept back up-do. 

Evening Wedding:
Above: This coral color is taking the world by storm. Wearing this "poppy" version is sure to turn some heads and make a few bridesmaids jealous :) 
Below: This hot little Kate Spade number is ADORABLE and totally okay in white considering it has such a bold black print. We love it paired with a hot pink pump or a big sparkly earring.

This neon high-low dress is so modern and minimalist right now. You can glam it up with accessories to make even more of a statement. 

Morning or Early Afternoon Wedding:

The sweet mint color of this pleated dress makes it great for a daytime wedding or event. Very classy, but very on trend. 

A soft flowing jersey gives this dress a more casual feel. Cobalt blue keeps it in the running for "best dressed guest" and the comfort factor is out of this world. 

A flirty frock with lace trim. Perfect for sipping mimosas with the best man :)
