There are plenty of great styles available that will help you to achieve all of these goals. Many of the looks that are coming out for this spring and summer are actually updated versions of styles that have been popular in past years, which makes them feel less risky and more worthy of splurging on. Some of the key styles include modified safari (like a stylish “Out of Africa” inspired blouse), beaded tops, and lots of great jewelry.

Many women prefer to wear a dress to a wedding, although if it is not too formal, you can also get away with separates, which will make the pieces more versatile in the future. This is especially nice if you have been invited to several weddings this year. You can use the same base piece, say a great metallic linen skirt, and change the look with different tops and wedding jewelry. Pair the subtle metallic skirt with a blouse in a hot color like coral for your niece’s afternoon wedding in a garden, and wear a heavily embellished top with the skirt for your cousin’s wedding at the country club. Perfect!

If you have been invited to a beach wedding, you will find that there are many terrific options available to you beyond the basic sundress. Long maxi dresses, done in bright colors with tiered skirts, are being seen in the shops this season. The look is not hippie grungy, but rather 70s bohemian luxe. Finish it off with a dramatic wide brim hat for both style and sun protection. (Don’t you just feel like Bianca Jagger?)

Another hot trend this season is the cream and white bold floral print. Bamboo and oversized flowers can be found adorning dresses, skirts, and fabulous blouses. Although a wedding guest should normally avoid wearing solid black or white to a wedding, it is perfectly acceptable in a pretty print. Add a dash of color with a brightly colored beaded necklace or a chunky enamel bracelet. Think about wearing your shoes in the same fun color as your jewelry, instead of basic black or cream. That will really give your outfit style and panache.

Nothing finishes off the perfect outfit like the right accessories. You want your wedding jewelry, shoes, and bag to be just as stylish as the rest of your ensemble. Look for great multi-strand necklaces, shoes in unexpected colors like yellow or green, and beautiful details on your handbags. Bamboo is especially popular as an accent on shoes and bags this year. Have some fun putting together a fabulous outfit that will make you feel chic and almost as gorgeous as the bride!
