Three days of sun, sand, and celebration call for gossamer gowns, slinky styles—and, yes, even a bikini. Let the beach bash begin.

A ball gown on the beach? Beautiful—especially when the fabric is as light as a breeze. An embroidered-tulle and ripped-taffeta overlay covers a French-lace A-line gown with a ribbon belt; $6,600, Angel Sanchez. Necklace, Pono by Joan Goodman. Sandals, Charles David.

Beauty Note: When taking it outside, opt for a fragrance like the lotus flower-fresh Salvatore Ferragamo Attimo eau de parfum spray.
