6. Reformation Harper Two-Piece ($368): For an unexpected outfit, opt for the more earthy tones of luxe champagne like in this dreamy two-piece dress. The loose crop top features a halter neck design that pairs well with an ultra-flirty wrap skirt.
7. Theia Poppy Lace Crop Top ($495) + similarBHLDN Gracia Skirt ($800): Go for a romantic, boho-inspired look with this crop top. It’s an upscale piece that looks insanely polished with a form-fitting pencil skirt or a flowy maxi like this.
8. J.Crew Floral Beaded Top ($450) + J.Crew Sloane Skirt ($425): A hand-embellished silk camisole works for just about anything; pair with this simple skirt for the wedding so it will stand out when you’re at the altar.
9. Rue de Seine Vintage Collection 2015 Danni Top + Skirt (price NA): It doesn’t get any more boho-chic than this two-piece combination. A lacy tank coordinates beautifully with the full skirt and side lace detailing.
10. BHLDN Ella Bodysuit ($1,100) + BHLDN Amora Skirt ($600): This skirt was made for dancing. Layers of airy tulle are perfect for twirling around with your beloved, and combined with a bodysuit made from iridescent opals and glass beads, it’s an irresistible look.
11. Mira Zwillinger Toma Tulle Outfit (price NA): A short, layered tulle skirt like this creates a playful vibe, while a sheer applique top brings a dose of sexy style. Or, keep it more traditional by working a simple silk tank underneath for more coverage.
12. David’s Bridal Long Dress + Lace Pop Over ($130): With a side ruffle on the skirt and an elegant lace overlay on the top, this two-piece combination creates an easy-going, ultra-feminine look.

14. Karen Willis Holmes Tillie Top + Natasha Skirt (price NA): Constructed with georgette, a lightweight crepe fabric, this skirt offers an upscale, minimalist look. We love how it’s given an uber romantic touch with this lacy long-sleeved top.
15. Watters Brides Kian Corset + Priya Skirt (prices NA): Rock this detailed corset with a full organza skirt for the ceremony, then switch it up with something a bit more streamlined and casual for the reception — we’re thinking tailored pants and a drape-y kimono.
