The Dress-Free Wedding Outfit

If you’re stuck in a cocktail-dress rut for your summer wedding outfit styling, break free with a look that incorporates pants or a skirt instead!

An Evening Affair

If the dress code is more formal, opt for black pants and a blouse in a rich jewel tone. Add a dash of festive fun with a pop of color in your shoes and complete your look with a shimmering statement necklace and evening clutch.

A Day Soiree

For a look that’s more casual, but equally wedding-friendly, try a skirt and sleeveless blouse pairing. This combo gives you the refinement of a dress, but the whimsy of colorblocking and pattern play. Simply pair a solid bottom with a patterned top in the same color family and add in complementary accessories for a finished look.

  1. I loce this sapphire lace blouse! For me, more with a pencil skirt. What a great look! The second out fit is perfect all the way around. Love it!

  2. Got the cropped trousers in my first fix last week and LOVE them! So comfortable and fit well. Thank you Stitch Fix!

  3. I want the Hilton 3/4 sleevee lacé Blouse. I like things loose and the color bright . How can I get it?

    • Hi there! Please feel free to include all of your requests in your notes for your stylist and they will do their very best to send it your way!

  4. LOVE the top outfit. Those black pants look like a wardrobe staple and that blue top is lovely. Would wear those all the time for “dressy” nights out.
