4 Foolproof Outfits to Wear to Your Next Summer Wedding

We’ve got our work uniform down to a science, but when it comes to figuring out what to wear to weddings, we’ve been known to freak out. Between planning for the weather, location, and designated dress code, and trying not to inadvertently match the bridesmaids (been there, done that), there are a lot of factors to consider.

This summer, we’re getting proactive and planning ahead. Here are the four foolproof looks we’ll be wearing to this season’s nuptials.

1. Your preppy second-cousin is getting married at the yacht club…
