If you’re headed to a fall wedding soon, you’re probably wondering what to wear! Of course, you want to look presentable, so that old summer dress will not be the best choice when the temperatures cool down a bit. But having said that, it’s not cold enough for a sweater dress either! And in any case, I am yet to come across a sweater dress that screams ‘Elegant Evening Wear’, so they aren’t exactly a great choice to begin with.
My personal favorite Fall Wedding Style — a sophisticated evening dress with a stylish wrap or bolero to stay warm. The dress can be midi length or full length, as per your personal taste. I also love the idea of fall-inspired makeup that uses darker hues.
So, if you are wondering what to wear to a fall wedding, here are my top 3 picks!
1. Chiffon & Lace Column Dress
I personally love an elegant lace and chiffon dress in dark Fall colors. There is something so chic about combining a lace bodice with a chiffon full skirt, especially if you want a dress that can be re-worn at some of the evening parties you are bound to attend during the Festive Season later in the year.
2. Floaty Knee Length Dress
If the wedding reception is a semi-formal affair, a knee-length cocktail chiffon dress is an excellent choice. The lavender color is feminine and demure, but the sultry halter neckline adds some fun.
3. Formal One-Shoulder Dress
A formal full length one-shoulder dress looks stunning too, especially if you have a minimalistic dressing style that is partial towards black and white combinations. This dress is elegant yet sassy; not just restricted as wedding wear, but also perfect for formal dinners and special occasion evening wear. The one-shoulder strap allows you to sexily show your shoulders, without showing the décolleté.
Since you are attending a fall wedding, consider combining fabrics for a luxurious look. An elegant wrap, stole or bolero will keep you warm, while also adding an interesting textured detail to your outfit. While it may be tempting to wear a cardigan or trench over the dress, it will mar the beauty of your stunning ensemble. A stylish pashmina wrap, lace wrap, cashmere stole or even a faux-fur wrap are all worthy option that offer warmth, yet look stylish over a wedding guest dress.
Add a touch of gold with gold toned accessories like a stylish belt, shoes or handbag. Enjoy the wedding!
