what to wear summer wedding

A friend wrote in to ask, “We are going to an evening wedding at a private home in the Hamptons, need help on what to wear.”

“Your wedding in the Hamptons sounds like a lovely affair.  We went shopping and fell in love with this Diane von Furstenberg  dress.  It is such a beautiful summer shade and is totally feminine and age-appropriate for any number.   Keep in mind that it may have to be taken to your tailor for a perfect fit.  DvF can run a little on the small side so if you are in doubt, please order 2 sizes and then try them both on to see which one works best.  I would put a little snap at the neckline so there are no surprises.   The dress is such a statement that I would keep the accessories simple with neutral or soft metallic sandals,  clutch and wrap.  Then add a little sparkle in the earrings, and you are ready to dance the night away.     Don’t forget to schedule your mani & pedi and cut or blow dry before you leave.   It is not easy to find places if you are in unfamiliar territory.”
