For many of us the flurry of spring wedding invitations has already begun. 

While many weddings are morning or afternoon affairs, those attending more formal evening weddings will want to consult the separates Elegant Plus Evening Gown section.  Those who are part of the wedding party may also wish to look at the Editor's Pick selections featured on the Bridesmaid and Mother-of-the-Bride pages for more ideas.

Although etiquette rules have relaxed considerably and colors such as black and red are considered more acceptable choices than they have in the past, solid white dresses are still generally thought to be reserved exclusively for the bride in most social circles.  Floral prints, lace, and chiffons are always popular choices in the spring.  This year the color palette is mainly clear and cool with minty greens, blues, and frosted pinks dominating.  Lemon yellow and deep pinks are also trending.   Floral patterns are frequently engineered and carefully placed, or part of subtly textured jacquards, burn out patterns, or tone-on-tone prints.

The most notable silhouette to debut in special occasion wear this year is long line jackets and toppers.  Solid options are generally layered over floral print sheath dresses, while the most luxurious fashion forward options are botanic prints in special occasion fabrics. 

Pant suits, evening pants, and jumpsuits are also gaining acceptability with all age groups.  Fashion forward wide leg styles are cropped this year at mid-calf, while slim legged options finish at the ankle.
