What to Wear to a Wedding: Fancy Skirts and T-Shirts

Weddings have dramatically changed from what was acceptable just a few short years ago. Gone are the days when wedding guests had to buy formal attire to celebrate a friend’s big day. Rather, stylish women these days are layering shift dresses with blazers and booties, breaking out the pants and jumpsuits, and—my personal favorite—pairing simple tees with their dressiest skirts. Not convinced? Here are my top picks for pulling this look off at the next wedding you’re invited to.
