I am invited to my nephew’s wedding at the Morton Arboretum in Illinois which will be at 5 p.m. in February. What should I wear? The invitation doesn’t specify.
–Belinda, Wedding in Chicago
When the wedding invitation does not call for Black Tie or Formal Attire, you can assume the dress code is Suits & Dresses. That means your best cocktail attire. A fabulous knee-length cocktail dress or dressy skirt-suit, with beautiful shoes and an elegantly small evening bag would be appropriate for a Chicago wedding in February.
To illustrate the kinds of dresses — along with accessories — trending for women over forty attending an early evening wedding in the Chicago area, go to Halsbrook.com and look for these dresses:
Piazza Sempione: Stretch Wool Lace Yoke Dress
Armani Collezioni: Navy Silk Gathered Waist Dress
Maxmara: Agente Wool-Blend Dress
Elie Tahari: Holland Crepe Shift Dress
We’re here to help, but we give better answers when we have more details.
