It’s summertime and wedding season has arrived! This summer is all about embracing your femininity and what better place to do that than a bridal shower? CocoKouture is ready to give you the big fashion do’s and don’ts, so be sure to take notes for your next big bridal shower event!
Bridal Shower Dos:
When in doubt, always stay on the dressy side: Attire at a bridal shower can be comparable to something you’d feel comfortable wearing out on a date. Be sure to dress up, be spontaneous, and stray away from your normal go-to outfits! Pair a dress with wedges, heels, or stylish flats if it is outdoor! This silk georgette halter neck dress by Ann Taylor ($265) provides the perfect pop of color to stay chic and bold at a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner!
Play up your look with accessories: An outfit is all about mixing, matching, and collaborating the unexpected. If your outfit is simple, add a colorful statement necklace, a scarf, or even a belt around your waist with a dress!
Preparation is key: It is obvious that things don’t always go as planned, so be prepared for an outdoor party too. Keep an extra pair of flats with you as well as your favorite shades, and stay cool by sporting a chic sun hat like this Pecan Raffia hat we love by Banana Republic ($49.50)!
Bridal Shower Don’ts:
Stick with a typical go-to look: Don’t resort to the same hairstyle or your typical make up look! Pictures will be taken so it’s essential to try something new with your hair or make up. If the shower is during the day, keep a natural make up look but be sure to make a feature pop. Whether it be bright lips and a nearly nude face or soft rosy cheeks and thick lashes highlighting your eyes, be sure to make a feature strike!
Go clutch-less & glossless: It goes without saying that long-wear lipstick is a must-have for an event like this! But for those of you who don’t know, be sure to bring lipstick or your favorite gloss to touch up your look midday. Keep your belongings light and be sure to keep it small enough to fit all your things easily into your favorite clutch. We absolutely adore this white Drew Box clutch from Banana Republic ($79.50)! White is universally versatile on almost all outfits and the subtle gold studs gives this clutch a tasteful touch.
Bridal showers are about creating memories so be sure to enjoy yourself, look chic, and laugh, because the most obvious and striking accessory a woman wears will always be her smile. Although, a little gloss to top it off would be picture perfect!
