Calling all my brides to be. Calling all my almost brides to be. Calling all my girls who really couldn't care less about waltzing down an aisle anytime soon, but just love really beautiful white dresses. (I'm the latter!)

Yep, I'm calling ALL OF YOU. Because, my good friend and bridal designer, Sarah Seven (who you may remember from this Royal Wedding homage post), has done it again. This time, with a collection of white dresses, jumpsuits and separates perfect for any part of the bridal celebration you may find yourself needing a "chic as shit" (her words, not mine, but I certainly don't disagree!) ensemble to wear. Cue the Before collection. And, of course, as someone who isn't planning a wedding anytime soon (nor do I really want to ever), I happen to love this collection of hers that much more, because each piece stands well on its own regardless if you're planning on exchanging vows in it or exchanging phone numbers with a cute guy at the bar in it.

I mentioned this in my previous post, but I love working with Sarah for a long list of reasons. And while the fact she always has champagne on hand and is usually blasting gangster rap in her studio definitely make her a kindred spirit, I particularly love how well she designs for a woman's body. I've worn a number of her ready to wear pieces in the past (remember this Funny Face post from last summer?) and cannot get enough of the cuts, silhouettes and lengths that she comes up with. As someone who loves midi dresses and a good open back detail, Sarah has my number.

What was a standout for me this time around though as I was picking pieces to style for this shoot, was how drawn to her jumpsuits I was. I usually shy away from jumpsuits as my torso is long and the proportions usually end up being a little off on me, but the second I saw the Hello High Low jumpsuit (the first jumpsuit in this photos series), I couldn't resist the drama of it! A silk jumpsuit with a deep V front, mesh panels on the side and a TRAIN MOMENT? Where do I sign?

Naturally, this is where the retro 1960s Cadillac comes in and well, the rest is history.

If you're planning any special occasions this summer (wedding or not!), I highly recommend you check out Sarah Seven's Before collection. And tell her Krystal sent you.

Not convinced you can wear these outside the wedding circuit? I rounded up my favorites below, with examples of how to style and where to wear them. Keep scrolling!
