It’s summer wedding season! And while we all love to witness loved ones exchanging vows, cutting a rug on the dance floor and, of course, taking advantage of the open bar (lol!), the first question is always: What will I wear? That question has become much easier for me with the addition of Nicole Miller Dresses, and especially this turquoise stunner. It features one of my favorite trends of the season — the cold shoulder — and is perfect for both formal and informal summer weddings.
A great dress is one that you want to wear this moment you buy it. And that’s exactly how I felt about this one-shoulder, silky cocktail dress from Nicole Miller dresses. I love the draped bow shoulder detail, which is a modern take on a classic ’80s style. For chillier nights, you can top off this dress with a soft shoulder wrap — because of the shoulder detail, you will want to avoid any type of jacket, coat or sweater. But your husband’s jacket over your dress is always a do!
There are a few accessory colors that absolutely make this dress pop. White, silver and gold are all great options, depending on how you want to finish the look. I decided to go with a mix of silver and white for a modern look. Simple drop earrings (with a touch of blue at the bottom), a silver pleated clutch and white-rimmed sunglasses add just enough contrast to the blue dress to achieve a contemporary finish. But the pièce de résistance of these accessories is the Michael Kors stiletto sandals, with white straps and a fun and unexpected silver spike heel. Ooh la la!
No matter what accessories you choose to highlight this stunning dress, it’s guaranteed to be a show-stopper. Plus, you can make it work for a few events this summer by simply changing up the accessories. Want to give it a global spin? Try a colorful beaded clutch and contrast hue lace-up fringe sandals. Or, go flirty with a kitten heel and box clutch. You can truly make this dress your own all summer long.
