What to Wear…To the Wedding

Summer equals wedding season – the joy, the happy tears…and the general cluelessness regarding outfit selection. If you’re stuck on what to wear, look no further – we’ve got you covered with a range of cruelty-free looks for every budget.

Why not try ladylike florals in a retro silhouette? The look is festively appropriate for day or night, and nothing says, “I’m so happy for you!” quite like donning a mass of flowers!


The Fantasy:

If you have the funds, now is the perfect time to shop for an investment piece that will never go out of style, like this cotton stunner by Dolce & Gabbana.
