Clueless about what you should wear to that end-of-summer wedding? No worries—I’ve put together not one, but six different options. Here are my favorite wedding guest outfit ideas for your next love-filled celebration:
A floral number that hits above the knee is a perfect choice for attending a wedding in. Pair it with an adorable clutch that holds your essentials.
If the dress code calls for something more formal, lean towards a dress in darker colors. Rock an A-line off-the-shoulder dress with your hair swept to the side for a polished, timeless look.
When it comes to the late summertime, don’t be afraid to wear a dress that has a bit of sass to it. Opt for a dress with a small cut-out or slit to keep it flirty yet appropriate.
Keep it minimal and chic with a simple dual-toned dress.
A wedding reception is the perfect opportunity for you to bring out that vintage piece you stored away. Your look will be unique and one-of-a-kind!
For an outdoor wedding, an off-the-shoulder dress in a light, breathable material is practical and fashion-forward. Not only will it photograph well for Instagram, you don’t have to worry about it getting too hot to wear.
Fashion is an outlet of expression, personal to everyone who puts thought and effort into the way they present themselves.
Yes, we love to follow trends, and we unfollow them after they have been deemed “over.” That is, of course, until they come back reinvented for the next era. And with those trends come fashion faux pas—style “mistakes” like wearing a wrinkly blouse or unfitted clothes. They can happen to anyone, and we’ve certainly looked back on some old trends as cringe-worthy. But more and more, it seems like we are saying goodbye to fashion that imposes rules on us about what we should wear.
Below, I’ve rounded up five fashion faux pas that have transcended fashion “rules” and become trendy!
In the last few years, Birkenstocks somehow made the leap from unfashionable comfort shoe to “it girl” street style. These unassuming sandals can dress down many styles. Pair them with your favorite dress, denim, or trousers for a day out.
2. Fanny packs
No longer just for your dad on vacation, fanny packs are in style and have gone through a modern makeover. A fanny pack or purse belt is a fashionable alternative to a handbag when you’re on the go.
Never mind the nickname—these aren’t your mom’s mom jeans! Natural waist, light-wash denim is back in style and giving our skinny jeans a breather. Bonus points if you can actually find a pair of vintage Levi’s 501s!
4. White after Labor Day
No need to put away your white clothing at the end of the summer! White is one of the hottest colors for the colder months.
5. Thrifted & Non-Label Clothing
When I was growing up, it was not trendy to wear secondhand or non-label clothing. Luckily for our wallets and our creativity, today it’s widespread, and we have plenty of secondhand options to shop and feed our individual style. I love seeing what other thrifters—like Beth in her thrift challenge video below—can find!
When it comes to jewelry, adorn your ears first this season! From studs to hoops to statement earrings, we’ll be stocking them all. Take a sneak peek into this week’s newest jewelry arrivals featuring—what else? Earrings!

Before Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, before social media and family connections, before celebrities took over ad campaigns and magazine covers, there was “The Big Six.” In the midst of a new wave of grunge and bubblegum pop music, an overabundance of denim, and the beginning of the celebrity gossip obsession, the 90’s also became the decade when models became supermodels and celebrities in their own right. Today’s models are automatically shoved into the “super” category just by having a certain amount of Instagram likes, but The Big Six: Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Kate Moss became larger than fashion, and still manage to captivate us today. Below, we’re taking a look at the original supermodels’; then and now.
Claudia Schiffer rose to supermodel status fame in the 90’s and currently still holds the Guinness Book of World Records for appearing on the most magazine covers. Schiffer became the face for Guess? and the muse for Chanel, dabbled in acting, and is currently using her status for good as a UK Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF.
As one of the women to define “supermodel”, Cindy Crawford, the highest paid model in the world in 1995, became a celebrity beyond modeling, delving into acting, endorsements, and even furniture design. Crawford is involved in numerous charities and activism organizations, such as The Ronald McDonald House Charities and Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation.
Christy Turlington is currently deeply involved in the crusade to providing safe pregnancies and births for all women with her non-profit she founded, Every Mother Counts, in 2010. But in the late 80’s and early 90’s Turlington was at the top of the fashion model game, a top pick for every high end designer in the industry.
As one of the most recognizable and in-demand models of the 90’s Naomi Campbell is still well known and successful in the industry today. After conquering the runway, fashion magazine covers, music video and television acting, Campbell is using her name for good and cofounded an advocacy group called Diversity Coalition to campaign for diversity in the modeling world. Campbell also does work with many organizations around the world in an effort to fight poverty.
Linda Evangelista coined the still popular phrase, “We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day,” speaking of herself and the other models that make up The Big Six. Evangelista has since retired from fashion modeling, and now focuses her efforts on activism and research for HIV/AIDs and breast cancer.
Kate Moss is the “six” in The Big Six, who rose to fame after her Calvin Klein campaign. Although she is targeted in the media for her “partying” lifestyle, Moss is currently still modeling at the top of her game. She is a well-known street style icon, and has dabbled in music and fashion design. Moss also uses her fame and money for good, supporting many charities, including Elton John AIDS Foundation, Make Poverty History, and SamandRuby charity, which she helped found.
A slip dress is one of those rare, versatile pieces that be styled for any occasion in any season. A classic wardrobe staple, it can be layered over a simple tee for a casual look, dressed up with your favorite fun heels for a date, or layered under a chunky knit in the cooler months. Lately, I’ve been searching for the perfect slip dress to add to my wardrobe using my favorite bloggers as inspiration. Take a look at some of my favorite slip dress outfit ideas!
Aimee, Song of Style
Aimee shows the versatility of her midi slip dress by layering it over both a white tee and denim. For a simpler look, you can leave out the denim and just layer it with a white tee. Check out Aimee’s favorite ways to style a slip dress in her YouTube video here.
Camille, Camille Over the Rainbow
I love Camille’s dusty rose slip dress paired with a simple tee and sneakers. Perfect for running around town all day in style!
Rachel adds a silk duster over her slip dress, making it appropriate from day to night.
A slip dress with gathered details like Jenny’s stands perfectly on it’s own.
Madelene, The Basis
I love how Madelene takes her slip dress into fall simply by adding a classic coat and a hat.
Cecilie, By Krog
A classic, everyday look, Cecilie pairs her slip dress with a tee, denim jacket and slides.
Kaitlyn, Modern Legacy
Create a structured, modern look by adding a blazer to your slip dress. Wearable from the office to date night, you can’t go wrong with this look!
