The Adrianna Papell Lace Cap-Sleeve Illusion Sheath Dress is the dress of our dreams. It’s the perfect blend of subtle and soft while remaining striking. It’s classic, but not too classic with just the right amount of flirt. It’s a perfect balance when looking for an appropriate wedding guest option.

This decadent lace dress isn’t just easy-to-wear, it’s easy on the eyes. The cap sleeves, allover lace and high neckline make this dress modest but modern. With floral paisley prints sprinkled throughout the shimmery sheath silhouette, it’s hard not to love it.

As if this pretty pink shade didn’t already have us blushing, the ribbon bow belt surely does! Quite frankly, whoever said we had to wait until dessert to enjoy the sweetest of treats never laid eyes on this silhouette. The scalloped hemline is just the cherry on top of this already delightful dress!

Personally, our favorite part about this dress is the above-the-knee length. It’s fun and flirty without being scandalous. It’s perfect and playful without being overpowering, which of course as a wedding attendee, we all know is important! Certainly, it will leave a sweet impression on many without stealing the show.

Truthfully, it comes as no shock that so many reviewers were left speechless over this super-sweet silhouette. Countless reviewers went ahead and called it the most elegant dress ever, while others called it the perfect fit. And let’s be honest, can we even blame them?

This dreamy dress is the sweetest solution when looking for endless versatility. Due to the chic but comfortable fit, it’s the one-and-only option when looking for a dress to last all wedding season long. From beach weddings to backyard ceremonies, this silhouette is on trend and appropriate for each and every one. So many reviewers even agreed! Whether just a regular guest or even a mother-of-the-bride, reviewers claimed this style was simply superb.

It’s important to note that with such a delicately detailed dress, it can often times be tricky or even intimidating how to wear it and what to pair with it. Simply strap on some strappy heeled sandals. Go ahead and add an embellished clutch and some small dainty jewelry. If it’s a chilly afternoon wedding or if temperatures drop at night, go ahead and swing over a classic trench coat on the shoulders. The key to styling success? Neutral tones and minimal accessories. Think little-to-no jewelry and if so, lighter-than-light options!

Forget about the dream wedding! When slipping into this sweet silhouette, our outfits will be what just about everyone is dreaming about. Apologies in advance to the bride and groom, obviously!
