My cousin and her fiance are having an outdoor engagement party in August. I was thinking of wearing a maxi dress, but I'm only 5'3 so they always seem too long for me. I am the maid of honor so I don't know if I should be dressed a little bit fancier even though it is an outdoor party. Also, we live in NYC and it gets very hot and humid in August. I want to be comfortable, but still look put together. I generally don't like to wear very bright colors. Her wedding colors are black, white and yellow. Should I try to incorporate those colors into my outfit? Please HELP!
I think that you can rock a maxi dress as long as you wear heels or a high wedge. I wouldn't worry about being dressed fancier than anyone else, or about matching the wedding colors. Just stay in your comfort zone and have fun! This maxi dress is actually a petite size, so it won't overwhelm you, and it's a summery color, but not too bright. This outfit costs $96.61.
