How I'm Styling 3 Dresses for 6 Upcoming Weddings I'm Attending This Year

I'll be pulling most pieces from my closet, but am considering a few new versatile accessories to keep the looks fresh.

One benefit of the multiple postponed and rescheduled weddings we have this year is the opportunity to see so many of my friends and loved ones in a short span of time. One downside? Needing to dress up for six formal events...which can get quite expensive.

Since I'm unwilling to purchase all new items for each occasion but I also don't want to be a predictable outfit repeater, I've highlighted three dresses from my closet – one that's new and two that are older – and how I'm planning on styling them to keep the looks feeling fresh and distinct.

Wedding Dresses

LOOK 1: Love the way these accessories make an ordinary dress feel way more fun. I'd add a punchy pink lip similar to the mauve from the bag to tie it all together.

LOOK 2: With a winged liner and wavy hair, this would strike the perfect balance between casual and classy. 

LOOK 3: Ideal for the black tie wedding I have coming up! Simple, sophisticated, and the pops of gold keep it elevated. I'd slick my hair back into a low bun and wear minimal makeup to complete the look.

LOOK 1: This combination screams California, which makes it perfect for an upcoming family friend's wedding I have at the Beverly Hills Hotel. 

LOOK 2: Hello, destination wedding! I love that this hits on a tropical vibe without feeling too shticky. 

LOOK 3: Grounding this dress with timeless accessories can easily transform it into something more muted with a touch of flair. Add an updo and you're all set!

Wedding Dresses2

LOOK 1: I can really envision this with a smoky metallic eye and my hair half up, half down. Plus, I'm very into this rust-green color combo.

LOOK 2: The elegant accessories make for a perfect pairing with the flirty cutout in the dress. Adding a bold lip would take it up a notch.

LOOK 3: Unexpected with tons of vibrant colors. This feels like it hits just the right tone for a rehearsal dinner.
