Let me guess. You’ve invested quite a bit when it comes to weddings this summer. As in gifts, flights, and dresses—like cocktail frocks, black-tie gowns, and maybe even a bridesmaid dress. Well, fabulous news, guys. The season’s investment dressy-dress doesn’t have to be a one-time wear, but it does depend on how you style it. So let’s look to Diane Kruger to show us how to dress down a formal gown, possibly for date night.
For an evening out with longtime boyfriend Joshua “He’ll Always Be Pacey to Me” Jackson, Diane opted for a strapless floral maxi that looks like a bridesmaid dress I’d actually want to wear. She effortlessly tempered the fancy-pants vibe of the ankle-skimming frock with casual and modern accessories: a pair of white wide-strap flat sandals, a studded Chanel mini-cross-body, and a double layer of dainty, barely there gold necklaces. Looks like Josh digs it.
