Thankfully People StyleWatch recently did a feature on this exact subject so I used it as inspiration for this post (it's in the May 2010 issue, p.82). Basically, they recommend taking a strapless metallic dress in a solid color that's flattering on most body types and can be easily dressed up or down for various occasions. Since we're approaching the summer wedding season, here are 3 ways to wear one party dress for a garden, city or beach wedding.

Embellished flats and chandelier earrings are glam but still laid-back.
