Black-tie weddings have become more common over the past few years. When invited to a black-tie wedding, you have two choices: a fancy short dress or a full-length gown. I like to go the full-length route. Why? Because opportunities to wear a gown are few and far between.
This Asos gown isn’t overly fancy, but with the right accessories, it’s perfect for a summer wedding. Asos has some other great options like this Embellished Shell Maxi and this coral Flutter Sleeve Maxi.
Looking for something more formal? You may need to spend a bit more. This Tadashi Shoji gown is $250, and it’s magnificent. In the under-$150 price range, this Alex Evenings gown is interesting because it has convertible straps. I also like this Adrianna Papell gown with a low-back and this cobalt, scalloped lace gown.
