With wedding season well underway, many of you may be hitting the department store or online shops to find the perfect outfit. In this post, I’ll be sharing my take on how to wear bright and vibrant colors as a guest attending an upcoming wedding. Pulling off a boldly colored dress can be a bit tricky considering you don’t want to take any attention away from the bride.
One of this summer trends I love is creating a gradient effect for your whole outfit where the shoes are complimentary to the dress but yet give the whole outfit a bit of oomph. Selecting hues that compliment one another rather than contrast is a great way to put together a bold outfit that says “you.”
Juicy Couture Daisy Guipure Dress, MAC Russian Red Lipstick, Kelsi Dagger Gemini Wedge Sandals, Anjolee Perfect Gemstone Link Bracelet, NARS Orgasm Nail Polish
I love the idea of pairing the yellow Juicy Couture Daisy Guipure Dress with orange and red accessories. Since a short dress like this is all about leg, choosing a shoe that you feel comfortable in. Selecting a lower wedge like the ones featured above will keep you comfortable all night. If you’re going for something a bit more daring, you can always go higher. Just remember to keep it tasteful.
For accessories, make a statement by choosing a bold red lipstick like MAC’s Russian Red. Pair that with Anjolee Perfect Gemstone Link Bracelet for a subtle way to be matchy-matchy. (I can’t help it–it’s the secret Southern Belle inside me!) However, don’t push it too far and avoid matching your lipstick to your nails. Instead opt for a neutral yet interesting color like NARS Orgasm.

Can we just talk about how much I love pairing together pink and purple? It’s just devine! The hue of the Nanette Lepore Dulce Dress is perfect for a summer wedding–bold yet understated especially since it’s a classically cut dress à la Mad Men.
Choose more classic jewelry when When wearing a brightly colored dress and shoes. I paired the Anjolee Tennis Bracelet with equally stunning Anjolee Circle Housed Diamond Stud Earrings. For nails, let the rest of your outfit do the talking and go with something neutral like Essie’s Nude Beach.
