Dress the part
Four boutique owners decode the unwritten instructions of what to wear at four types of weddings.
If the invite says daytime, go classy with a fabric like silk but don’t overdo it with the accessories.
“Look for a dress that isn’t too formal but still has a refined elegance,” Roslyn owner Roslyn Dulyapaibul says. “The ruffle detail gives the dress a slightly romantic feel without being over-the-top girly, and the metallic accessories provide a little bit of interest without competing with the dress.”
Elise Bergman Ezra dress, $328; vintage Versace heels, $315; Abigail Heche Fine Jewelry sterling silver necklace, $265, and dewdrop earrings, $85 all at Roslyn (2035 N Damen Ave, 773-489-1511, roslynboutique.com).
