It's wedding season and many of us have a good friend or even a BFF that's tying the knot this summer. We know it's rude to try and upstage the bride, but that doesn't mean we can't still dress to impress (afterall, we may meet our own Prince Charming there!). Just keep silhouettes simple but striking and add a little bit of bling that'll help you stand out in your accessories. ThisNext Lifestyle Tastemaker, Jo Gartin, inspires us with her picks on getting ready for your best friends bridal bash in style.
