Dress the part
Four boutique owners decode the unwritten instructions of what to wear at four types of weddings.
If the invite says evening, go for a fancy fabric such as silk or think cocktail attire with a twist.
“[This jumper is] just as appropriate as an after-5 dress, but much cooler,” Mulberry & Me owner Jana Zacek says. “It even has some tuxedo elements to it.”
Twinkle by Wenlan jumper, $329; Marcia Moran gold-plated rings, $74 each; Marc Bernstein wrap bracelet, $119; Joie wedge heels, $365, all at Mulberry & Me (2019 W Division St, 773-952-7551, mulberryandme.com).
