If it is a morning affair, and you are attending a summer wedding, then try and choose cocktail attire for women that will let you be comfortable and let your skin breathe. Avoid complicated straps, sequins, shiny adornments, fabrics like satin, etc. Stick to dresses that are made of a fabric that is summer friendly and more importantly, wrinkle free.

For evening cocktails, bring out fabrics such as satin, silk, rayon and fine-gauge knits that work very well. A little bit of bling works for evening wear but if this is the case with your dress, then ensure that you do not over-accessorize. Let the prints of the dress be reminiscent of the season that it is being worn in.

Summer is the season of colors. Ditch the blacks and whites and make new additions to your color palette. Wear a bright summer color like yellow or pink. If colors make you slightly nervous, you can try and experiment with different prints on the dress.

Focus on your accessories. While matching accessories in shades of the same color as your dress work well, try and experiment with the adornments that you wear and make a statement, for example, if you are wearing a green dress, instead of wearing heels in the same color or plain old black, spice it up with wedges in a canary yellow. But make sure that you are comfortable in whatever you wear.
