What To Wear to a Summer Wedding

So you received the invitation in the mail and there are a few lines that have you all in a tizzy because of course you have no idea what “Black Tie Affair” or “Hippie Chic” or “Roaring 20s Inspired” mean.

Of course, that is what I am here for, to help you navigate the field mines of proper attire for trending wedding themes this summer. Hang on to your tea hat, let’s do this.

Black Tie Affair

Formal Summer Wedding


Belted dress, 71,445 KRW / Neon shoes, 187,540 KRW / J by Jasper Conran black clutch, 35,720 KRW / Fantasy Jewelry Box oversized ring, 31,990 KRW / Stella & Dot jewelry, 90,420 KRW / Chain jewelry, 200,300 KRW / Juicy Couture dangle earrings, 28,615 KRW / Lip makeup, 16,025 KRW / MAC Cosmetics , 24,035 KRW / Nail polish, 17,155 KRW


Why it Works

Black tie doesn’t necessarily mean ball gown these days unless of course your friend is from a well to do WASPY family, in which case, scratch this outfit. Ho wever, if your friends are just plain ol’ middle class folk like the rest of us this outfit is especially smashing because the polkadots make a statement. I mean really, its ok to somewhat outshine the bride, seriously, she has found her mate, you are still looking. With this strapless bodice and fashion forward pattern you can’t go wrong at this affair.

We all have them. Those hippie friends that like to buck convention. They are so granola that even granola bars have fewer nuts and flakes. But we love them and there is no way in hell we would miss their wedding. And here is an outfit that looks as if you chose it from your closet effortlessly, but your friends don’t know that you spent days, nay, weeks searching for the perfect shoe to go with the green in the dress. Despite the casualness this outfit will not go unnoticed and you will look like the stylish hipster friend coming in from Hollywood.
