weddings are our sport of choice, come the warm months of summer — and finding the right dress to wear can be a hunt.
We’ve selected a short list of sustainable dresses for summer weddings that’ll get you inspired and help you to discover the brands we rely on for effortless, flattering looks you can then rewear, restyle or trade with friends. Remember, what you do with a dress after you wear it is just as important as sourcing it in the first place when it comes to sustainability.
9 Sustainable Dresses + Accessories To Wear To A Summer Wedding
Fame & Partners | If you find your summers packed with wedding weekends lately, you need to know about this innovative clothing brand offering customizable dresses made to order. Fame & Partners offers beautiful silhouettes with a wide variety of customizable options. Pick your dress style, then select from dozens of customizations, from color to length!
The Kira Dress, above in black, comes in a wide range of colors, sleeve options, and lengths. Even the neckline can be adjusted. The ruffle on hem and sleeve are also optional. The Pleated Side Cutout Dress, shown above in light blue, comes in five lengths and twelve colors.
If you’re looking for something high quality (that’s very unlikely to be worn by another guest!), Fame & Partners is an amazing resource. We love that the pieces are made to order, cutting down on waste immensely.
Reformation | Is it even a wedding if someone’s not wearing this culty sustainable brand? Although Reformation dresses have become the sustainable dresses for summer weddings, we still can’t quit them. The flattering cuts and summery prints are just too good to ignore. Our favorite picks this season include the Melita and Enya Dresses shown above in over-sized florals.
Farm Rio is a Brazilian brand whose creative team “believes in happiness” and it shows. This sustainable maker serves up destination looks like no other, if that’s the type of wedding you’re shopping for. We love this Mixed Pink Prints Maxi Dress from Farm Rio. Don’t miss their hand-embroidered and crocheted pieces either.
PEONY |Made from low-impact linen in a timeless and irresistible print, Peony’s Off-The-Shoulder Floral-Print Linen Maxi Dress is one of our top picks for wedding guest dresses this summer. See our recent swim round-up filled with chic pieces from the brand here.
Finally, if it’s a handbag you need to get you through an outdoor ceremony or post-wedding-cake dance party, these clutches from Cuyana and JW Pei are just the things. Cuyana’s Mini Bow Bag comes in three timeless colors. L.A.-based PW Pei’s Rylee Bag features a scrunchable bag handle we really can’t resist.
