Ask Shopbop: 1 Dress, 3 Weddings

Rebecca Taylor Dress. Looks styled by Karina and Loni.

I am going to three weddings this summer, and I’d love to make the same dress work for all of them. Any advice to make each look different?

Smart move! With a few simple styling tricks, one versatile dress can easily last through wedding season.

A more casual event means you can have a little fun with a bold print. A bright floral blazer is a great option for a garden wedding. Add a studded belt and fringed B-Low The Belt bag for a hint of edge, and finish the look with loose easy hair.

Heels are not a requirement at a fancy affair. Metallic Tibi flats are a stylish alternative, even in a more elegant setting. Show off sparkling, oversized jewelry with a slightly messy top knot, and grab a tiny Lauren Merkin clutch in the same color family as your dress.

If the wedding has a kooky theme or funky locale, don’t be afraid to try a wilder look. Pair a bold blazer in a unique silhouette with print Alice + Olivia pumps, then finish with soft hair and delicate jewelry for a fun and nuptial-friendly look.

The bottom line is to dress well, but be yourself because if you aren’t comfortable, you’re going to have a lousy time.
