outfit: what to wear to a summer wedding

When it comes to summer weddings, the style options can be plentiful. To share with you a few options, TAGG’s excited to partner up with the lovely ladies behind Marionberry Style and Mix Match Fashion to share with you three ways to dress for a summer wedding. Be sure to their sites to get more details on these gorgeous printed looks (love!).

What to Wear to a Summer Wedding

The dress I’m wearing, a major early summer score from J. Crew Factory, was purchased for this occasion: OMG, we have a wedding/major event and I have nothing to wear! Having great pieces — and I love a color instead of black, particularly if it’s for a daytime event — that can work a myriad of ways is a huge closet helper. I’ve worn this dress for a rehearsal dinner with bold earrings and black strappy heels, and another time with a blazer for an evening work-related event.

    I love the idea of going with a bright color instead of the safety of black – you all did a fabulous job!

    Love the pink dress! I wouldn’t have thought of it, but it could be a great wardrobe staple.

    The color looks fantastic on you! You know, I was always told red heads can’t wear this or that but you seem to wear every color with no problem. You look so pretty!

    love the dress you chose! I have a very similar one that I’ve worn to countless weddings. It’s the perfect silhouette (modest) and such a fun, happy color!

    LOVE that J. Crew Factory dress. I’ve got the regular J. Crew version of it in 3 colors and I wear them ALL THE TIME. They are so versatile!

    This is a lovely dress. I can see you rocking it on weddings, cocktail parties or work meetings paired with a blazer.
