If you’re like us, you are probably attending a handful of weddings this summer. Whether it’s outdoor garden, formal black tie, or alternative boho- we’ve got the right styles to make sure you are the best (+most sustainably) dressed wedding guest.
Wedding Style: Boho/Alternative/Beach
This isn’t your typical wedding, so have fun with it. Try chic, yet comfy styles for all the mingling and dancing you’ll be getting yourself into. We like this Kristinit silk jacquard jumpsuit and the luxurious sustainable tencel lace maxi skirt by Myrrhia Fine Knitwear paired with a simple cami. Add a pop of color with your accessorizing. Red bud and marsala are hot this season and we are lovin’ these Knotty Gal mini earrings and Nashville red gold flats by JulieBees.
Wedding Style: Classic Outdoor Garden
Stick to springy brights and pastels for the classic wedding outdoor garden party. Synergy Organic Clothing has a range of breathable, organic cotton dresses for all those hours in the sun. Shawls and scarves are another lifesaver in the beaming summer heat – protect those shoulders! Take a cue from the bride with delicate, floral hair accessories like a ClayMeArt rose or Untamed Bridal’s range of hair pins. And don’t forget the clutch! Try something fishy (made sustainably from iridescent perch scales) by Unnur.
Wedding Style: Formal Black Tie
When the opportunity to wear a ball gown arises – take it. Nothing is more fun than dressing up to the nines for a special occasion. We love this silk gunmetal ball gown by Leafy Natural Couture and the lace maxi dress in deep moody burgundy by Myrrhia Fine Knitwear. Accessorize with lots of gold from Judi Powers Jewelry, which is handmade in the USA from recycled, conflict-free materials. Black pumps by Olsen Haus – avec sass – will complete any look for a an evening to remember.
