What to Wear to a Bridal Shower

See by Chloé silk dress
Zara heels
Givenchy clutch
BaubleBar necklace + rings

Most of our summer weekends are booked with weddings and related festivities, which are fun times to dress up and celebrate the ones you love who are in love. I bought this dress with these upcoming events in mind, and recently wore it to a friend's bridal shower. Since the fit of the dress is form-fitting, I liked that the neck and hemlines are modest.

Here are 3 tips for What to Wear to a Bridal Shower:
  1. Look for classic dress shapes like a-line, shift, and wrap, rather than mini or bodycon. You can also pair a top with a fun skirt.
  2. Unless you're the bride, consider wearing a different color than white, such as mint, cobalt blue, peach, or florals.
  3. Since it's not the Bachelorette Party, avoid severe cutouts, plunging necklines, or anything common sense tells you is better off for a night of clubbing.
