Personal Shopper: A dress for Amy's fiance's aunt's second husband's beachside memorial service

Amy S. wrote, "Hey OB! I have a fashion conundrum. At the end of October I have a memorial service to attend for my Fiance's Aunt's second husband. Its on the beach in Florida, and I haven't a clue what to wear! Black seems too stuffy for a beach affair, but I dont want to go too casual either. I dont have a lot of money to spend either, so I'd like to incorporate some basics that may already be in my closet, or that would also work for interviews/work/etc. Please, help! Thank you!!! -Amy in VA"

Hi Amy! For a more casual memorial service like this, a lightweight dress in a darker tone like gray or navy would work well. That way, you can wear it on multiple occasions, from work to dinners. We've picked out six dresses below that can pull double or even triple duty for you. Hope one of these is just right!

1 - About the Artist Dress ($53)

2 - Donna Ricco Belted Cowl Neck Jersey Dress ($118)

3 - Paper Art Dress ($118)

4 - Gap Drape Neck Dress ($70, 2 colors)

5 - JB by Julie Brown Scalloped Print Jersey Wrap Dress ($125, 2 colors)

6 - Velvet Lucerna Dress ($128, 2 colors)
