    2. A split ruched halter gown that'll make you second guess whether you're going to a wedding or a red carpet event. Never too late to change your mind.

    3. An A-line cap sleeve dress for relying to create the perfect twirl as soon as you hit the dance floor (aka your one move).

    4. A knit maxi dress with a surplice neckline and draped skirt, because you deserve to make everywhere your runway — wedding aisles included.

    6. A dramatic gown with thigh-high slits that'll have you striking poses even when the photographer isn't in sight. You should ALWAYS be ready.

    7. A sleeveless V-neck pencil dress for having something you can count on to *stick by you* no matter what. Autumn winds are no problem with this baby.

    19. A layered cold-shoulder bodycon dress in ~nine patterns~ that'll inspire the entire room to get down on one knee. Bride included.

    20. A pearl-embroidered tunic shift with a ruffled hem for proving diamonds aren't the only one worthy of being a girl's best friend.
