Wedding Guest Dressing
Posted: May 29 2015
With wedding season officially underway, have you received any invites that leave you baffled about what to wear? Deciphering proper wedding dress codes can sometimes be a hassle, but armed with the right knowledge, and a few stylish pieces, you'll be the belle of the ball in no time with our guide with what to wear.
A formal but still flexible dress code, this style of dressing involves either long ball gowns or dressy cocktail dresses. There are no hard rules other than elegance, so we say err on the classic side.
MYNT Pick: A timeless black gown like the Lace Yolk Dress paired with knockout shoes, jewelry and fun accessories (like gloves!) to keep it looking modern.
Fun and fancy, two words to keep in mind when the wedding invite says it’s a cocktail party. Choose a shape that suits your personality and body type best. To get multiple uses out of a new cocktail dress, invest in one in a standout color or print and pair it with neutral or metallic heels.
MYNT Pick: The Floral Wrap Dress in Black/White will up your cocktail style, just make sure to slip on high heels and lots of jewelry when wearing it.
This dress code mostly applies for day weddings, so think daytime clothes dressed up a little. Dresses or skirts with blouses or trousers and sweaters work for these gatherings.
MYNT Pick: Choose a skirt with dressy details, like the Cascade Drape Skirt, and play them up by pairing it with a silky cami.
Almost anything, except for boring black, goes for this type of party. Choose unexpected pieces and dress seasonally in fun, bright colors, bold accessories and lots of frills.
MYNT Pick: Forgo a traditional dress and wear a super-modern, extremely chic jumpsuit like the Sheer Bodice Jumpsuit.
