Ask BB: Wedding Guest Style on a Budget

I have multiple weddings to go to this spring, summer, and fall. Can you help me find a dress that I can accessorize easily to change it from season to season and wear to the weddings without feeling like I'm wearing the same dress every weekend? —Kelly

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. Come fall or winter, just add a coat, shrug or black tights to the same dress and you're ready to go! Well worth the investment if you find the perfect fit. Keep reading to see all 3 options and click on any item for shopping details!

Grass-friendly wedges and a colorful statement necklace give this dress a garden-wedding makeover.

Black accessories and a big cocktail ring lend city sophistication to the dress.

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

I love this post! Summer is always so full of weddings, and I love how versatile one dress can be.

I love that dress, but when I click on the picture the link to Macy's just takes you to their front page. Can you post the link to the dress itself? Thanks!
