It’s okay to wear white, so long as your outfit has a print on it, so as to be visibly different from a bridal gown.
Some of the most ideal summer fabrics are sheer, but no one wants to worry about exposing too much skin in a see-through dress at a wedding. Instead, opt for a version that is lined and covered in a bright pattern to reap the benefits of a sheer fabric’s lightweight, cool touch.
Smart girls who know that a transitional ensemble is ideal for transforming their look between the wedding and the reception will opt for a lavishly embroidered or printed silk robe. Wear it closed during the ceremony as a maxi dress, and open for the reception for a more relaxed look.
