The lounge dress code is the second of two dress codes I considered before attending a morning outdoor wedding. It’s not explicitly for outdoor weddings, but because brunch was served and it was an incredibly warm day, I thought this suited the occasion more. Here’s what I wore.
The lounge dress code is a slightly less formal dress code than the formal resort/beach wear dress code and shouldn’t be confused with loungewear. This dress code is best for a daytime engagement party, afternoon tea, or nice brunch. It calls for dresses with hemlines that end at or slightly above the knee in flowy, cute silhouettes. Stay away from anything too sparkly, low-cut, or short that you might wear on a night out on the town. If your dress is a bit on the revealing side, you can add a blazer or jacket.
