In my line of work, I frequently find a new favorite dress to fall in love with. And this week, this one is it! This is the the dress I’d be buying if I had a wedding (or a whole slew of them!) to attend this season.
If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that a few years ago I was on the fence about some maxi dresses as wedding attire. There were a few seasons where maxi dresses used to be too shapeless and informal – they all seemed to be more of a beach cover-up than a dress, but not so now! This chiffon gown is so versatile, so lovely, and so wedding appropriate that I’m recommending it for nearly everything!
Firstly, I can see it as the perfect choice for a late spring or summer wedding guest – and with this print, and fabric at this length, it can go from daytime dressy to formal afternoon and evening with just a little change of accessories. This gown also has destination wedding or beach formal wedding guest written all over it. It’s also a gorgeous ‘plays-well-with-others’ choice if you’re hoping to add a print to a row of mix-and-match bridesmaids – just simply pick up on any one or two of the many colors in this. It would make a fantastic stand-out gown for a maid of honor. And lastly, if you’re the bride looking for a dreamy dress to wear to your engagement party or the rehearsal dinner, I think this would be a gorgeous choice that is sure to get compliments, and a nice change-up from wearing white. The only issue I can see with this gown is that since I’ve now I’ve said nearly female attending a wedding can wear this, I hope we don’t get 3 guests, 4 bridesmaids, and the bride the night before all in this dress at the same wedding. The gown itself is also a perfect wardrobe staple – with all the colors in it, you can pick from any one of them to accessorize with, or make it even more glamorous with metallics or crystal statement pieces. I choose some turquoise and coral pieces for contrast, along with a fabulous pair of iridescent sandals that capture all the facets of this beautiful mix of colors, but this is a dress that is undoubtedly full of choices for accessories! Now if only spring would hurry up and get here!
