Summer weddings are back and better than ever. And if you're anything like us, there is no better time to dress to impress than a summer soirée. From black tie to backyard and beyond (literally, we love a destination wedding), we've got your look covered for every occasion. Scroll to see what we're eyeing this wedding season.

Backyard Wedding

Strike a mood all summer long in these must-have occasion dresses. Go bold for backyard blowouts—we're clearly loving a tangerine moment. And if bright hues aren't quite your thing, lean into the garden party vibe and throw on something floral. Flowing, effortless, and easy to slip on while suiting your summer style oh-so-perfectly. And, in case you missed it, cut-outs are back and better than ever. Have a little fun this summer and show some skin—our picks below will have you feeling chic, sexy, and best-dressed in no time.


We love a night out, especially when the dress code is black-tie. For formal summer weddings, we're eyeing all things silk. From halter jumpsuits to satin midis, these statement pieces will have you hitting the dance floor in style. And what's on the agenda for our summer color palette? Pastels. We love a shade that's bright and basically sings of summer. Add in a cutout (or two) and you'll be catching more than the bouquet.

Destination Wedding

Name something better than destination dressing... we'll wait. Whether you're taking things international or somewhere out east, destination weddings are the perfect time to have fun with the usual formal dress code. Naturally, when it comes to weddings away, we can't help but picture a dreamy dress to match the dreamy destination. And that's just what we found. From multi-color sheer moments to feminine prints and patterns, these award-winning looks will transport you to your next tropical oasis and beyond.
