What to Wear to a Wedding: Off-the-Shoulder Fitted Red Dress, Neutral Pumps, Top Knot

Yes, I'm on a bit of a wedding tear right now, and yes, Christine Andrew from hellofashionblog.com is getting serious outfit-idea play on the site because she has some of the most on-point wedding-guest look options in the blogosphere. This happens to be my go-to for summer weddings lately. A red dress:



  • Hourglass girls out there: going with a more structured silhouette (fitted, but not necessarily body-con if that isn't your thing; I'm talking tailoring, seaming details, and this involves a tad of an investment but I believe in fewer/better when it comes to the closet so it works out in the end) is a good idea 99.9% off the time.
  • Opting for more volume to hide behind will work against you and plus, you've got the curves, why not celebrate 'em?
  • A metallic box clutch would bring a little welcome vintage vibe here if you're up for it (love this option from DVF)
  • Not into grenadine shades of red? Go with a deep, rich, burgundy and if you're down for being trend-forward + it's Fall, a velvet version of this would slay at any big event, wedding or otherwise
