It’s the height of wedding season—what are you going to wear for your friend or family member’s big day. It’s time to hit the shopping mall and replenish your wedding wardrobe. The Mall at Bay Plaza in the Bronx has dozens of great clothing stores where you’ll find amazing outfit ideas for your spring and summer occasions.
Before you start shopping, consider one of these hot wedding guest trends.
1. The Cocktail Dress
The classic cocktail dress will never go out of style and comes in every shade, pattern, and style you can imagine. Pastels are ideal for spring events—and pale pink is this year’s most popular shade. If you’re attending a summer wedding, don’t shy away from bright, festive hues. The only rule is that white is off-limits for everyone but the bride.
2. The Skirt & Blouse
For a retro look perfect for a casual wedding, pair a flared midi skirt with a fitted off-shoulder top, or a pencil skirt with a breezy button-up blouse. A good fashion guideline to follow is to wear a fitted bottom with a flowing top or a flowing bottom with a fitted top. Mixing prints is fun, but make sure that your prints are in the same color family or have different scales. This will help ensure your look isn’t too busy. You want your outfit to make an impression for all the right reasons.
3. The Jumpsuit
Want to try something trendy? A jumpsuit can be the perfect outfit for a formal occasion, and today’s clothing stores offer a variety of fashionable options. It’s an easy, comfortable fashion statement that can be paired with strappy or chunky heels. Solid colors can be spiced up with bold jewelry and a glittery handbag.
