Q&A: What to Wear to a Casual Wedding in the South

Q:  I am attending a wedding in South Carolina in May. The wedding is supposed to take place outside and it was requested that the dress be casual. Help!

Playa Tank Dress at J CrewA:  Even though the requested dress is "casual," we’d still recommend wearing a dress or a skirt-blouse combination. We have three casual wedding style tips for you:

1. Because the wedding is both casual and outdoors, we’d recommend wearing a short dress–but no overtly sexy styles, since it is a wedding.  Try strappy or halter styles instead. 

2. Since the wedding is in May, bright colors are not only on-trend but also seasonally appropriate.

3. Lastly, since the South tends to be a bit more formal, we’d recommend bringing a cardigan for some extra coverage.

Here’s three dresses to get you started:

(Pictured) Playa Tank Dress | $250 at J Crew
A figure flattering empire-waist dress is dressed up with a seasonally appropriate bright yellow color.

BCBG Max Azria ‘Penny Dot’ Dress | $158 at Nordstrom 
A bright graphic dotted print spices up a matte jersey babydoll dress.

Generra Tie Back Dress | $161 at Shopbop
This halter dress features figure flattering ruching at the (empire) waistline and a comfortable above-the-knee hemline.
