Bold black statement pieces make the white dress more of a black and white ensemble, so you won’t be competing with the bride. This dress is sophisticated enough for
a wedding and is the perfect length to feel comfortable while celebrating after the ceremony.

Black beaded clutch ($32); Toucan collection sun hat ($130); Pearl and oyster necklace ($108); Amo Rosa silk and viscose black dress ($82)

This hat from So Sandra is perfect for shading the sun yet adds so much flare to your outfit! With beautiful movement, the layering in the dress is ideal for later in the night when you shimmy on the dance floor. We love the Roaring Twenties feel of this ensemble.
