Bridesmaids dresses in the past have been known for having a less than impressive appearance; from the movies My Best Friend’s Wedding, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and 27 Dresses, just to name a few. But today I introduce you to a bridesmaid dress brand that tosses that particular style stereotype out of the window! Made in San Francisco, Weddington Way is an online boutique that specializes in wedding apparel, making the bride’s decision easy & hassle free. But if you’re a bridesmaid, who said your dress had to be a one trick pony? Why not wear your dress again to find some romance of your own…on a date! Today I am going to share with you how to style a bridesmaid dress from Weddington Way for the perfect summer date. 😉
Where I live, we are right next to a large beautiful bay, and downtown in our city there are restaurants that sit right by the water. Picture this; You are sitting at an outdoor table, a refreshing breeze in the atmosphere and your beau sitting across from you. For an outfit we are going to go with light hues to give off a casual and less intimidating vibe (black we’re going to have to say goodbye to you for now), and create the ideal sweet summery appearance!
This gorgeous dress above is in a refreshing mint shade, perfect for a light and sweet Summer look. The peplum design of fit-and-flare accentuates your waistline and is over all a flattering cut on any figure!
For the daredevils out there, go with a nude heel; the light simplistic color won’t clash or overpower the hue of the dress. But if you enjoy playing it cool try an easy pair of nude ballet flats (for even more sophistication try a pair without a bow). The ballet flats are so slim and worry-free that you could even tuck them in your clutch as a back-up plan!
Now you might be saying…pink? But if you opt for a lighter shade styled in a polished piece than your look will lose its “candy coated” vibe. For accessibility go for a mini cross body, it’ll be easier to carry and will leave your hands free due to its nifty strap. If you prefer something light and small then try a basic clutch.
Since it is Summer I usually recommend a perfume with a scent that is sweet and flirty. I recommend Living Grace by Philosophy, and it’s rollerball size is perfect for travel or to slip into your clutch just in case. It’s always a hassle to re-apply lipstick and if you’re on a date you’re going to need it at its best. Instead of a regular formula try a lip stain or a liquid lipstick that’ll stay on throughout your evening. Try the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, it’s a lip stain without the weird dryness and it’ll leave your lips feeling like they have a fresh coat of lipstick all night long.
Because this particular dress has a high neckline I’d style it with a statement necklace that’ll stun everyone. Because statement necklaces are already a large role in this outfit you don’t really need any other shiny accessories or jewelry. You’re good to go!
