Between the wedding venues, cocktail dresses, cake samples and late-night Pinterest inspiration, nuptials are certainly stressful for the bride-to-be. But once invitations start landing in mailboxes, the stress is passed along to friends who are now standing in front of their closets wondering what to wear.
Buying a new frock for each event isn’t realistic for most of us. It’s a much more modern – and fiscally responsible – approach to choose one beautiful, versatile vintage dress. I’m fond of this brocade stunner from J.Crew that goes from destination wedding to formal affair with ease.
For the beach: Pair the dress with a raffia clutch (you could splurge on the Anya Hindmarch version or go with a ultra-affordable vintage one on eBay), a bold boho necklace and flat metallic sandals.
For a formal affair: Refined shapes in punchy colors keep your look for being too stuffy. Try a pair of pumps in a matching color, introduce a contrasting color with your clutch, and top it off with dainty earrings and a cocktail ring.
