When you reach a certain point in your life, your summer calendar inevitably fills up with more than just barbecues and pool parties. That's right — wedding season is upon us, which means it's time to begin the hunt for the perfect wedding guest outfit. It can be a stressful process on you and your wallet (do you know the average cost of attending a summer wedding? Holy moly). You want to look fab but not outshine the bride and try out the latest trends without committing any fashion faux-pas, and when you have more than a couple of weddings to attend, you need multiple options without blowing your entire paycheck on a wedding guest wardrobe. These 5 staples not only come in at less than $100, but also have wedding guest dress re-wear potential.
1. Lulus All the Sway Convertible Light Grey Maxi Dresses Cheap Sale ($64): This dress is the ultimate in versatility. The long jersey straps can be tied in countless different ways, giving you a whole new look every time. Plus, the light gray color acts as a blank canvas you can change up with different accessories.
2. Mango Embroidered Crystals Dress ($120): If black is your go-to color but feels too stark for a summer wedding, go with navy blue instead. Crystal embellishments keep this number from looking too casual, and if you throw on a pair of tights and booties, this dress will carry you all the way into fall.
3. & Other Stories Draped Midi Length Dresses ($75): If prints aren't your thing, choose a solid colored dress with unusual details or silhouettes to keep it interesting. The color on this one is bright and cheery, and the draping is to die for.
4. COS Asymmetric Jersey Dress ($99): Jersey dresses are usually reserved for the beach rather than a formal affair, but not this one. The emerald green hue and asymmetric hemline dress the whole look up, but it's still simple enough to wear on the daily.
5. Rachel Antonoff Halter Maxi Dress ($175): Prints, pastels, maxi length — this is wedding guest attire at its best. Add the relaxed fit and low back, and this will also be the ideal dress to slip on for hot summer nights out.
