I’ve had many requests to put together some dresses and accessories to wear to summer weddings, events, and parties. This was a little harder than I thought it would be since many dresses were sold out of sizes. Even pre-order dresses were already sold out. But I think I’ve pulled some chic options for day and evening. The accessories like square toed sandals and small handle top bags will update dresses and outfits you already own too.

I love the prints and colors of this Combo-Print Flounce-Hem Gown. If you’re petite or want a midi length dress that is more wearable for day, take it to your tailor and have them hem it up to the striped area.

If you want to buy one thing to update your look this summer, make it a square toed sandal like these Leather Two-Strap Block Heel Sandals.

I’d pair this outfit with this red satin clutch but so many of the accessories I’ve chosen can be easily mixed and matched with other pieces.

I love navy as an alternative to black in the summer. This navy puff-sleeve floral-print taffeta dress is perfect for summer weddings, charity events, bridal showers, cocktails, dinner parties, and more.

These yellow Suede Buckle Slide Sandals would look great with many of these dresses. Just make sure you use a suede protector spray on them before you wear them.

This cute Mini Crocodile-Embossed Top-Handle Bag is the style of the summer that would go with any of these dresses.

If you can’t quite get to Italy yet, this Le Sirenuse Positano flowers-print cotton dress will make you feel like you are there this summer.

If you want to update your summer style without spending a lot, these Woven Leather Strappy Block Heel Sandals are a great style and a great deal.

This pale blue Mini Leather Satchel Bag is the perfect color to pair with pretty summer dresses.

This floral-print ruffled chiffon dress is a great day to night dress for summer events.

These pink Leather Strappy Heeled Sandals are another great style at a great price.

You can go wrong with wicker in the summer and this Wicker Bag can be worn as a clutch or a crossbody bag.

How lovely would this floral-print organic-cotton midi dress be for an outdoor wedding?

These Leather Thong Mule Sandals have a wider heel that would work well in the grass.

This green mini leather cross-body bag can be worn as a shoulder bag or a crossbody.

Do you have a “ladies who lunch” lunch or a wedding in England? If so, I suggest this chic Johanna Ortiz  polka-dot silk wrap dress. It’s on sale right now too.

These Bicolor Ankle-Strap Sandals would look as good downtown as they would uptown.

I love how the latch on this classic mini leather shoulder bag picks up the round polka dots of the dress.

This sweet v-neck floral-print silk-crepe midi dress is another perfect dress for an outdoor wedding or garden party.

I love the yellow/green shade of these Leather Knotted Kitten Heel Sandals for summer.

This neutral Dinner Roll leather shoulder bag is the perfect size and shape for summer parties.

This floral-print cotton mini dress would look great for a summer bridal shower or just a weekend brunch.

The shorter the hem, the flatter the shoe should be so I’d pair the mini dress with these blush colored Valentino Garavani Rockstud leather sandals.

This small green GG Marmont quilted leather shoulder bag can be worn as a shoulder bag or crossbody.

Have a country wedding or party in the mountains? I’d suggest this Sea enrietta quilted cotton-blend midi dress.

You can’t go wrong with a French Blue Suede Wrap Sandal in the summer.

Add a pop of color to any outfit with this Mansur Gavriel Mini Lambskin Cloud Clutch Bag.

If you need something a little dressier, this Pleated Off-Shoulder Printed Chiffon Dress is a chic option.

I’d pair it with these blue Dual-Bow Slide Heel Sandals.

Carry this Olympia Le-Tan Sense and Sensibility embroidered book clutch and be prepared for it to be a conversation starter. It’s also on sale right now.

Want to knock everyone out at your rehearsal dinner or small wedding? This Long-Sleeve Lace Overlay Midi Godet Dress would be perfection.

These cream Silk Crystal Buckle Slide Sandals are the perfect wedding shoes.

If it’s your wedding season, this feather-trim satin bag should be tucked under your arm at all the parties.

Do you have an evening wedding to attend or a charity gala? This Metallic Dot Jacquard Tiered Strapless A-Line Gown is formal and fun. It’s also on sale.

If you have to wear heels again, at least make them these comfortable gold Uptown Sandals.

This satin minaudière clutch can be worn as a crossbody bag but you can also remove the gold part to use alone as a clutch. It’s also on sale.

Happy Summer Event Season!
