The months between April and August are fair game for all kinds of festive events, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! While attending special occasions is fun for a number of reasons (Food! Drinks! Dancing!), deciding what to wear can present quite the problem for gals who are constantly on the go. Don’t stress about finding the perfect outfit. Instead, keep your closet stocked with versatile items that will work together seamlessly to create a flawless look. From baby showers, to bridal showers, to birthday parties in between, take a peek at a few of our favorite no-fail ensembles to appear fashionable and fabulous at every event.
A voluminous midi skirt is a chic and completely adorable option for all of summer’s events. You can dress this look up or down, depending on the occasion, so you’re sure to end up with a look that speaks true to you. Pair a floral midi skirt with a slouchy tank top and strappy sandals for a modern look, or rock it with a prim and proper blouse and pumps for polished affairs. Our favorite take? We love pairing feminine floral midi skirts with neutral crop tops and statement jewelry for a look that is as stylish as it is sweet. Of course, floral dresses also look great for most occasions.
While the summer dress is a no-brainer for events like weddings and showers, you can take the road less traveled and opt for a sleek jumpsuit instead. This effortless way of dressing is bound to result in an incredible outfit – one that can be accessorized for added glamour. Try a bold, bright jumpsuit in a striking shade like cobalt, then use gold accents to up the ante.
The Bohemian trend that’s prominent during summer tends to fizzle out once the colder months set in, but peasant dresses tend to stick around. We adore peasant dresses for festive events, as you can dress them up or down with accessories, and they’re just sophisticated enough for anything from baby showers to graduations. Opt for a maxi silhouette with voluminous sleeves and a bold paisley print for optimal style. Throw in hoop earrings or an of-the-minute choker to seal the deal on yet another fabulous summer ensemble.
