Spring weddings are the epitome of romance, blossoming love, and the promise of new beginnings. As invitations flutter through your letterbox, the excitement mounts, but so does the inevitable question: “What should I wear?” For the sophisticated woman over 50, finding the perfect ensemble that balances elegance, style, and appropriateness can feel like a daunting task. Fear not, dear readers, for I am here to guide you through the maze of wedding attire with grace and sophistication.

What to Wear to a Spring Wedding

Daytime Florals

May weddings exude a sense of freshness and vitality, with nature coming into full bloom as the weather warms. For a daytime affair, consider embracing the vibrant spirit of spring with a knee-length floral dress. Opt for soft pastel hues or bold floral prints that capture the essence of the season while exuding refined elegance.

AZALEA CHIFFON MAXI DRESS, FLORAL This tiered chiffon maxi dress is the perfect getup for a sunny garden party or late lunch meetup. V-neck, blouson long sleeves with elastic cuffs and concealed in-seam side pockets. Dress comes with a TECHNO magenta slip to wear underneath. Lightweight and breezy chiffon.

POPPY RELAXED DRESS, GARDEN  This floral relaxed midi dress has a cocoon silhouette with an elastic hem, flattered curved empire waist, with a jersey knit top half and satin-feel bottom. Crew neck, elbow length sleeves, and side seam pockets.

FORGET-ME-NOT COCOON DRESS, GARDEN Hagar’s signature silhouette in a striking floral pattern. It’s as effortless as can be in an elegant pullover style in smooth, cool-to-the-touch knit that gently skims the bust line, then flares at the waist for roomy movement. V-neck, long sleeves, and beautifully curvaceous skirting with impeccable piecing.

Classic A Line

A chic A-line or fit-and-flare silhouette will flatter your figure beautifully, ensuring you feel both comfortable and confident throughout the celebration. Pair your dress with delicate accessories such as pearl earrings or a dainty pendant necklace to add a touch of sophistication without overpowering the ensemble.

CHARLIE CRINKLE TANK DRESS, STRIPE Playful stripes are softened by our ever-popular crinkled fabric… And it doesn’t get much easier… Cool, sleeveless, bra-friendly silhouette barely skims the bust, then falls to perfection in a maxi dress length, flaring gradually to the hemline. Scoop neck, roomy pockets and lengthening drop waist. 

FLIRTY A LINE DRESS, SCRIPT This effortless pullover dress style is a jersey knit with stretch that gently skims the bust line, then flares at the waist for roomy movement. The scoop neck, 3/4 set-in sleeves, and beautifully curvaceous skirting are designed to flatter.

LEO A-LINE MIDI DRESS Crewneck, long sleeves and a fitted bust that trapezes out into swingy skirting. Stretchy and true to size, this mostly black dress has asymmetric patches of black satin and animal print at the hem to radiate a powerful mystique. 

Evening Jewel Tones

For an evening May wedding, elevate your look with a timeless cocktail dress in a luxurious fabric such as silk or chiffon. Opt for rich jewel tones like emerald green, sapphire blue, or deep plum to add a touch of drama and sophistication to your outfit. Complete your ensemble with statement jewelry, such as a sparkling cocktail ring or chandelier earrings, to add a glamorous finishing touch.

ESSENTIAL CARGO DRESS, RED ROSE This relaxed dress flares out at the bust into a straight silhouette that cocoons gently at the knee-skimming hem. Details: V-neck, three-quarter length sleeves, and large draped cargo-style front pockets. 

ESSENTIAL COCOON DRESS, ROYAL BLUE and LIME Hagar’s super-comfy cocoon design gently skims the bust, then flares at the waist for freedom of movement. V-neck, techno-cuffed three-quarter sleeves and curvaceous skirting.
