3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses. An elegant knee-length cocktail dress, like this FAIRY COUPLE Women's Off the Shoulder Lace Vintage Wedding Party Cocktail Dress is perfect for a black-tie optional indoor wedding, while a sleeveless o…

My Favorite Runway Looks from New York Fashion Week


Fashion week has graced us with the Spring / Summer 2016 collections from Paris, London, and elsewhere. Though I'm still basking in my favorite runway looks from New York Fashion Week. I'm an American after all, aside from my Hungarian heritage, so I look forward to seeing these particular trends trickle down in the U.S. this coming spring.

The 70s revival trend that is so prevalent for Fall 2015 will no doubt carry over into spring and summer next year. Trends like fringe, bell sleeves, and boho waves were repeated in several different collections, accompanied by over-sized acrylic jewelry, like the chunky bangles seen at Georgine. The off-the-shoulder trend seen this year is another 70s-inspired look that we'll continue to see next year.


There was a fair amount of sparkle on the runways. My favorite pieces with that trend were at Badgley Mischka. This level of glamour, often reserved for the fall and winter collections, was seen in several shows. I'm a bit tame when it comes to color, and prefer fringe and studs over flowers; but when it comes to sparkle, the more the better.


There were so many gorgeous gown as always. With the biggest red carpets coming up early next year, the fall shows are a time when stylists pick out dresses for their A-list clients. I wouldn't be surprised if we saw some stars in a flowing drop-waist gown like the ones seen at Carmen Marc Valvo.


A designer I don't typically follow, Dennis Basso, also had some beautiful dresses in his collection. These two in a black and floral print were my favorites.


While there were a lot of high-neck dresses, the deep V-neck silhouette was also very popular. I'll take each of the Jenny Packham dresses pictured above, especially that little white one.


One of my favorite designers, Prabal Gurung, showcased some beautiful two-piece dresses and an over-sized brush stroke print.


Although there was a good measure of atypical spring styles - a lot of black and shimmer - the floral prints were much more feminine and almost juvenile compared to the last few spring seasons, and the most popular bright colors on the runway were yellow and hot pink. Pictured above: Lela Rose.

Overall, the spring / summer 2016 fashion season is looking quite beautiful. Which looks are your favorites?

  1. I'm not quite sure why models always have that dead to the world look in their eyes.
