Proof you can wear black to a summer wedding

If you’re feeling nervy that solid black is more birthday night out than a garden wedding kind of vibe, look for lace and delicate embroidery to bring out the 'special day' big guns. Sheer layers of lace also give the go-ahead for super-sexy details like a plunge neckline, ensuring all eyes are on the bride.
For a souped-up formal affair, your job is going to be just that much easier. A sleek maxi looks even fancier in black, and the deep V neckline on this beaut is really delicate. Add a black clutch to keep it minimal with luxe gold details.
This babe has the right idea when it comes to wearing black as a block colour: look for conceptual details (those amazing sleeves) and add in so-you accessories (a cute clutch and mirror sunnies). Effortless and comfortable: two major wedding outfit deliverables, nailed.

If you're hitting fast-forward on the ceremony and heading straight for the reception, then go all-out with some evening sparkle (plus feathers, if you really want to get all the compliments). Your trusty pointed courts are your dancing shoe of choice, or a midi block heel would finish off the 20s flapper vibe to a tee.
