Wearing Black At A Summer Wedding

Once a sartorial no-no, black is now acceptable wedding guest attire. Don’t believe us? Just look to blogger Lucy Williams, who recently donned a dark, cutwork Self-Portrait dress to a friend’s nuptials (and looked incredibly chic while doing so).

If you’re thinking of rocking the shade at the next summer wedding on your list (n.b. always best to check with the bride first), then look to our edit of the prettiest, floatiest and most-enduringly-stylish LBD’s on the webosphere.
