Ask the Edit: Bachelorette Attire

Feb 18, 2020

A fun bachelorette getaway requires a couple of fun outfits.  This bride is headed to the desert and needs some affordable ideas.  Let’s get started.

Hi Belle!

I have a question for your Ask the Edit feature! I am having my Bachelorette Party in Scottsdale at the end of March and I would love a few ideas for what to wear!

Specifically, a fab swim suit and something fun for a night out, open to either dress/jumpsuit or separates. I am 33 and my stiletto and body-con dress days are over. Budget is $100ish for each piece.

Thank you!! MR

I love Scottsdale.  One of my best friends from college lives in that area, and I always love going to visit.  I highly recommend The Mission for dinner.  As for your question, let’s start with the dress.

This eyelet dress from Francesca’s is a cute option for a warmer climate.  I would pair it with these sliced shell earrings in a pretty aqua color.

Other dresses in the pretty category include this Express lace dress (very similar to Self-Portrait) and this sleeveless popover dress from TJMaxx.  Plus-size? Try this ASOS Curve mini-dress.

For something more structured, this Lavish Alice dress caught my eye.

Looking for a jumpsuit?  I found this one from Monique Lhuillier and this black smocked romper from She + Sky.

If you’d like a dress that’s more on the sultry side, this cross-neck midi dress has a snug fit.  And if you want something really unique, this ASOS blazer dress has wonderful textured details.

I love a bright swimsuit and this lava and hibiscus suit from Summersalt is just the ticket.  I also like this bright red suit from LOFT.  And this deep green ASOS one shoulder suit is not to be missed.

Looking for a two-piece?  This striped Madewell suit is very cute.  This bright yellow suit from Modcloth also caught my eye.  Or if you want white this L-Space ruffle strap bikini top is really fun.

Plus-size?  This floral-print swimsuit with a ruffle detail is nice.  I also like this ASOS Curve one piece with an off-the-shoulder look.

    These are great finds! I also had a lot of luck with online shop LuLu’s when it came to all the white dresses / jumpsuits I needed for my own wedding-related parties.

    Not mandatory but I thought that might be worth considering re:bathing suit choices…depending how close in time your bachelorette party is to your wedding, your skin type, etc, you may want to try to find a neckline on the suit that coordinates with your gown. Alternatively, you could plan on getting a spray tan, but I know not everyone is a fan of those. Definitely not mandatory but something that you may want to consider depending on how you feel about potential tan lines.

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
