Wedding Guest Fashion

Springtime is wedding season. It’s time to have an outfit or two available for upcoming weddings that you plan to attend. This week we are focusing on wedding guest fashion and attire. We’ll be talking about what to wear to morning, afternoon, and evening weddings, and showcasing outfits each day. 


The ceremony time is a key factor when deciding what to wear to a wedding. Morning weddings are casual, evening weddings are usually formal, and afternoon weddings are in between the two.


Whatever the level of formality, you want to be comfortable in your wedding guest attire. Choose items that are your style, and pair well with the level of formalness for the wedding ceremony. 


Avoid anything too revealing or sheer. It's the bride's day, and there should be no distractions or redirection of focus.


Join us here, each day, as we discuss wedding guest fashion and attire.

Spring Transitional Wear

Winter-to-Spring Wardrobe Ideas

Ah, springtime … brisk mornings, warm afternoons, and cool evenings. Springtime weather is so unpredictable. What’s a girl to wear? While we’re packing away the heavy coats and winter knits, let’s keep those boyfriend jackets, cardigans, and plaids handy for layering.


Springtime scarves and light denims are perfect components to a transition outfit as well. And layers! Layering is a girl’s best friend. It’s the perfect technique for changing an outfit as the temperature fluctuates.


Now is the time to consider winter-to-spring transitional wear. We’ll look at everything from boots to florals, scarves to cardigans, and plaids to denims. And for a fun touch, Emma is prepping her “Must Haves” for spring transitional wear, with items on display in the Boutique.


Do you have a favorite long-sleeve floral blouse in your closet from wintertime? Wear it this spring with jeans and denim vest. Complete your outfit with a pair of peep-toe heeled booties, which are perfect for spring transitional outfits. These pair well with jeans, ankle trousers, skirts, and dresses when we’re not quite ready to break out the sandals.


If your favorite dark floral is a dress, add a denim jacket and complete the outfit with boots. But not just any boots … pull out those over-the-knee boots to polish off this spring look with a bold, edgy vibe.


When wearing blouses or dresses, layers are a girl’s best-friend! The always classic boyfriend jacket is a perfect layering piece. If it’s too cool to wear just a dress, add that jacket. Cuff those jacket sleeves to give the outfit a spring look. Or, change it up a bit by adding a lightweight cardigan under the jacket. The extra layer gives interest to the outfit and added warmth if needed, or layer with just a cardigan … pair that brightly colored chunky knit cardigan with your floral outfit for springtime contrast.


Layering is key when putting together your spring transitional outfits. Layering … it is a girl’s best friend! Layering makes it easy to build your winter-to-spring outfits. Here are some fun ideas to try.

  • Start with a lightweight top or blouse, add a neutral sweater, and top it off with springtime accessories. Need another layer? That denim jacket is perfect!
  • Queue the dark and neutral sweaters and add a splash of spring color. Scarves are the perfect accessory to complement any transitional outfit.
  • Lightweight sweaters are perfect for spring. For a fun visual effect, try pairing opposite fabrics in your outfit … a textured neutral sweater with a springtime skirt, or a chunky springtime sweater with a flowing dress.
  • Another sweater option … consider a short-sleeve sweater dress and layer it with a light cardigan. Step out of your comfort zone … use a colorful springtime scarf and tie it as a belt.
  • Heavy knit dresses are just cozy enough for early spring. Wear a fun spring fedora and those over-the-knee boots to add that “boom” to your spring outfit.

  

Now is the time for a light-wash denim or chambray. Pair a light chambray with your dark jeans, monochromatically brightening up your springtime outfit. Top it off with a pop of color. Adding colorful springtime accessories is easy and fun. Whether it’s a bold handbag, a bright floral scarf, or cute colorful flats, have fun adding a springtime touch to your outfits.


The chambray shirt dress can be worn several ways. It’s your perfect spring foundation piece. Wear it with any of these combinations:

  • Leggings and ankle boots
  • Festive floral scarf and over-the-knee boots
  • Black 3/4 leggings and bright flats
  • Leather fedora and cowgirl boots


What about those plaids? Don’t pack them away. Plaid is back this year as a style trend, so we’re going to have fun with it!


Make a statement with a plaid jacket. Layer it with a chambray shirt dress. Cuff the sleeves, and don’t forget those heeled booties. Change up the outfit by pairing the plaid jacket with light-wash blue jeans, bright heels, and a bold spring scarf.


Or, keep it easy by layering a tee with a plaid blouse and dark-wash ankle jeans. Dress up that outfit with classic black heels. Feel like stepping up your 2019 fashion game? Wear contrasting plaid heels!
