Ruffled Maxi

Wearing black to a formal wedding is a no-brainer! It’s classy, elegant, and timeless. Formal wedding guest dresses in black don’t have to play it safe by following traditional a-line fits. Choose one with a ruffled sleeve for an assymeetrical look or a ruffled bottom. You’ll will be complimented all night long for choosing to wear a bold look that many wouldn’t dare to try. But that’s the whole point of fashion… to let your fierceness show!

The dress is long enough to cover your feet so you can get away with wearing a pair of comfortable shoes like flats, during the wedding. Just make sure you can walk in the floor-length dress without tripping if you choose to go the flat route. If not, a little heel or a hem will be necessary. Just please, no sneakers! Don’t be that person…
