6 Great Dresses for Summer Wedding Guests

Have a season full of invites? We’ve got the prettiest frocks for ceremonies from the beach to the big city, and every dress code in between.


ASOS Dress With Soft Double-Layer


This floral dress will give even the prettiest of gardens a run for the money. (Bonus: the double-tiered effect doesn’t just look chic—it’s equally flattering on both larger and smaller busts).

Chelsea28 Popover Crop Jumpsuit


Three trends in one (an evening take on the jumpsuit, an au courant “matched set” look, and the silhouette of the moment—a cropped, wide-leg cut) this piece looks right at home in sleek city spaces.

To buy: $148, nordstrom.com.

Mango Blond Long Dress


Think of this lacey A-line as the warm-weather version of your favorite LBD—it’s about as light and airy as a black dress can get. The versatile long length switches seamlessly between casual-cool when paired with flats, or all-out formal if you add metallic stiletto sandals.

To buy: $90, mango.com.

J.Crew Karina Gingham Dress


Heading off to a rustic wedding? Go the extra (country) mile. Bright kelly green puts a new twist on the classic gingham pattern—plus the print is one of summer’s hottest trends, so you’ll want to wear this one over and over again.

Tiare Hawaii Hollie Maxi Dress


Equally at home barefoot on the beach or dressed up with statement earrings and a clutch, the stretchy, smocked bodice on this dress ensures a flawless fit.

H&M Strapless Dress


Even if the invitation says “black tie,” we think you’ll get away with this navy number. A full-silhouetted skirt creates a balanced, hourglass figure, and jacquard stripes add visual interest without piling on the bling. Going completely bare-shouldered not your thing? It comes with removable grosgrain straps.

To buy: $70, hm.com.
