An off the shoulder dress is so “au courant”! Off the shoulder styles have been infiltrating designer collections for several seasons and have reached a boiling point, they are hot. Are off the shoulder style dresses appropriate for the wedding guest? It depends on the style (limited skin showing) and how it looks on you. An off the shoulder dress should reach around the knees or longer to look stylish. There are some styles that will look good for a wedding but there are many that look too sexy to be in good taste for a wedding. Remember you are not supposed to steal the show from the bride.
What Should the Wedding Guest Wear?
Be a stylish wedding guest! Weddings are to celebrate, occasions to dress up. The wedding invitation provides the information to help you decide what to wear. Daytime (morning and afternoon) weddings are more casual than evening or formal weddings. Today any color is appropriate with the exception of white which is reserved for the bride.
Dressing Tips for Wedding Guests
Weddings are to celebrate a very special event. For casual wedding venues dressy casual attire is appropriate. A cocktail dress is great for a dressy wedding or semi-formal event. For “Black Tie” (formal) weddings cocktail or floor length dresses are chic. When in doubt a colorful sheath dress can be dressed up or down and work well for most weddings that are not formal. Your shoes should be stylish and comfortable so you can enjoy dancing the night away.
