I find that women are often intimidated by black-tie weddings. The thought of a dressy, floor-length gown means that you must get all dolled up and spend a fortune. When it comes to formal weddings, I prefer to keep things understated—a slinky dress, lived in hair, and minimal accessories. I love how the cutouts in this gown from David’s Bridal give it a designer look and are sexy without being overtly so. No high slits or cleavage necessary, so you won’t upstage the bride. I also love the color. It’s a very summer appropriate shade of berry, however, deep enough to work for formal events all year. It’s an ideal staple dress that I plan to pull out again and again. For more wedding wardrobe ideas, I love this guide that breaks down what to wear for every wedding, from casual to destination.
