Rachel Bilson's Floral Dress

What warm weather occasion does a floral frock not work for? Follow in Bilson’s footsteps by opting for a tailored fit like the one on her pink Mary Katrantzou dress, and be sure to choose a basic pump to keep the ensemble from looking too busy.

Zoe Saldana's One-Shouldered Maxi

Saldana’s asymmetrical Victoria Beckham maxi is the perfect inspiration for a nighttime beach wedding with its casual, Grecian goddess draping and understated detailing. Of course, be careful about whose wedding you choose to wear white too — alterna-brides will be totally down.

Kim Kardashian's Front-Slit LBD

Despite the breezy weather, summer weddings can be formal too, so dress for the occasion in a sexy, all-black ensemble like the Wes Gordon number Kardashian wore to a recent NBCUniversal event. One tip: If you’re sporting a dramatic front slit, try to keep things elegant with a covered up bodice rather than a plunging version.

Adelaide Kane's Strapless Jumpsuit

Not all summer weddings require a red carpet-ready dress. For the super-casual occasions, take your glamour down a notch with a strapless jumpsuit in a fun hue, like the deep red version Kane wore to a recent CW event. Go for a tapered leg to add some structure to the look, or opt for a wide-leg version for a truly beachy feel.
