Taylor Swift Just Wore the Perfect Wedding Guest Dress—Shop the Pretty Trend

When Taylor Swift is a guest at a wedding, it's easy to guess whose dress will be the second most-talked-about look—after the bride's of course. In this case, the wedding was for Swift's longtime friend and producer Jack Antonoff to actress and Chanel ambassador Margaret Qualley. The wedding took place in a New Jersey beach town, and based on the photos I've seen, I'd call it a classic, semiformal affair. Swift dressed accordingly, opting for a light-blue lace midi dress by Erdem, which is now on sale but is going fast.

The romantic dress, with its corsetted bodice and ruffled skirt, is as perfect for a wedding as it gets. While there are many trend-forward elements to Swift's dress, it's the balconette detail that makes the most impact, in my opinion at least. Balconette dresses feature bra-style cups, and it's a pretty, lingerie-inspired trend I've seen a lot of as of late. I can tell that people love it because dresses of this style are often very quick to sell out.
