There’s nothing I get more excited for than a wedding invitation in the mail. It’s the perfect excuse to go dress shopping and get glammed up all over again. Finding the perfect attire is surely easier in some months versus others. And August/September timeframe isn’t one of them. As summer comes to an end and fall is about to start, you might feel a bit flustered on what’s appropriate. So, whether you have a wedding or bridal shower to attend, I wanted to share some wedding guest outfit ideas for late summer.

Sheer Overlay Dresses

Not only is the sheer trend going to be a big hit this fall, but it’s also an elegant one. I find no better way to dress up for a late summer wedding than a sheer overlay dress adorned with beautiful embroidery. If temperatures stay hot throughout the day, a sleeveless or off-the-shoulder option is most ideal. But if the evenings have become cooler, sleeved options are essential. Pair with modern strappy heels.

Skirt & Satin Cami

A wedding doesn’t have to call explicitly for a beautiful gown. You can get creative with separates too. Satin or lace camisoles pair flawlessly with pleated and ruffle skirts. Tie the look together with a polished belt and structured bag. With such a simple look, you can jazz it up further with jewelry (love this necklace and these earrings).

Slip Dress

For the conscious shopper, a slip dress is your best friend. What’s great about this piece is that you can wear it beyond weddings and through the years. Its simplistic nature allows for a variety of heels and accessories – and once the wedding is over, take it into fall with cozy knits.

If you’re all about an eye-catching look that makes everyone turn heads, a full sequin ensemble is sure to bring the drama. Keep the look from looking too club-y by opting for sleeves and/or a longer hemline. Stick to muted accessories and let the sequins do the talking.

Leopard Print

For my rule breakers, tis the season for leopard print. Tread carefully though because not every leopard dress is wedding appropriate. Look for elegant details like a fluted silhouette, ruffle thigh slit, or an unexpected color combo. Elevate the look with sleek heels and minimalist jewelry.
