Wedding season is fast approaching, and you know what that means: it's time to say yes to the dress — and we're not talking about the bride. 

While we wouldn't blame you for returning to the same tried-and-true outfit you wear to every big event (we all have at least one), after spending the past 15 months in varying forms of athleisure, who among us doesn't want to spice things up a bit?
