Black Dresses to Wear to a Summer Wedding

Summer is here, which means wedding season is in full swing. As a guest, it can be tough to decide what to wear. However, my go-to choice is a chic and timeless black dress. Black is not only flattering but also always exudes a sense of class and sophistication and ones you can often wear through the year. When shopping for the perfect black dress, Saks has such a wide assortment of casual to formal black dresses in all price ranges.

A black dress is effortlessly easy to style, making it a perfect option for any summer wedding. Whether it’s a formal affair or a more casual gathering, there are various black dress options to choose from. For a more elegant event, a lace maxi dress paired with heels creates a stunning look. If you prefer a classic vibe, an a-line dress paired with sandals is both comfortable and stylish. These versatile looks will guarantee that you’ll be looking gorgeous and classy at any wedding occasion this summer!
