Cocktail Attire for a Wedding

Cocktail Attire for a Wedding

Figuring out what to wear to a formal event like a wedding can be challenging. Every special occasion has those unwritten rules around what is appropriate to wear. When a wedding invitation says “cocktail attire” or “black tie” there are dress codes to adhere too.

 

My cardinal rule for a wedding is to NEVER wear white. I go into detail in this Wedding post. I tend to wear mainly dresses for cocktail attire, but you can wear jumpsuits and even a suit! If it’s a black-tie dress code, I recommend going full-length dress. . This navy lace off-the-shoulder dress is from ASOS. Its currently on sale for $42.

 

Here are my core tips to dressing for a more formal wedding:
