I was at a wedding in San Francisco last weekend and found myself paying attention to the all too much discussed wedding guest color palette. Is black too somber? White off-limits? What colors work best for each season? And while I believe there are will always be rules and exceptions to wedding guest fashion, I think the one thing you should never skimp on is fun. It is after all, an amazing party.
So I decided for my next big nuptial fete, I’ll toe the line between the two big no no’s and opt for this black and white stunner, courtesy of Stacey Bendet for Alice + Olivia. The asymmetrical tiered skirt, the simple bodice, the halter straps—Bendet understands the mechanics of flirty yet sophisticated fashion and loved this particular piece so much she named it after herself! And while this dress would definitely not steal attention away from the bride, it would still turn at least a few groomsmen’s heads.
