Destination: Wedding
A destination wedding is the time to indulge in elevated versions of beachwear you can’t actually wear to a beach. Think silk kaftans, fancy sandals, and gilded, seaside-inspired jewelry.

Ancient Greek Sandals Estia Flouria Sandals, $325; net-a-porter.com

Oscar de la Renta Clip Earrings, $220; net-a-porter.com

Rodo Wicker and Linen Box Bag, $800; bergdorfgoodman.com

Hotel Ballrooms

A hotel wedding is a controlled environment. You don’t have to worry about ruining your shoes or overthinking the weather report, so experiment with super extra accessories.

Jacquemus Espelho Mini Tasselled-Tweed Bag, $622; matchesfashion.com

Vegas, Baby

If your BFF is getting taking the Sophie Turner route, go big but think smart. Put on your campiest dress, but keep your accessories at a minimum. It’s likely you’ll end up stumbling down the strip, so choose an easy cross body you can’t lose and flats you can walk in.

Attico Feather Mini Dress, $3,390; farfetch.com

By Far Mini Bag, $510; shopbop.com

Christian Louboutin Ballalla Flats, $645; net-a-porter.com

Garden Party

For your friend’s garden party, think color. Mix and match your favorite summery hues and your pics will look amazing. Choose flats or wedges, because heels might sink into the lawn.

Conservative Ceremony

Not all summer weddings mean you’ll be basking in the sun. For weddings held in conservative venues like a church, think sheath dresses—which still hug your figure—and ladylike accessories.

Repetto Electra Mary-Jane, $445; repetto.com

Even though you’ll be standing in an office at city hall, you can still dress up! Celebrate the new couple in fun pants and a printed top, then style it with basics you can rewear to the office.
