Dressing the Part: Fall Fashions for Wedding Guests
Fall is a time for a change, but not just with the weather, with your wardrobe too. As you plan the perfect outfit for a beautiful fall wedding, you need to consider not only the temperature, but the tone of the wedding too. Whether you are attending a formal gathering or a casual outdoor function, there are many fun, fall dresses to wear that will make you feel beautiful inside and out.
Choose Rich Colors
Fall is the time to bring out the rich, deep colors of autumn. Do not make the mistake of donning black, yet again. Instead, look for dresses in deep reds, golds and blues. Think earthy colors or the colors of your favorite gemstones to find the perfect dress. If you insist on wearing a solid colored dress in a more neutral color, try accessorizing with bold jewelry in earthy tones to bring out the color of your eyes and skin during the season that we all start losing our gorgeous summer tan.
Go Bold with Floral Patterns
Fall is the time to break out the bold, floral patterns – not the timid patterns of spring and summer. Big, beautiful flowers covering a sheath dress are the perfect combination for a fall wedding. The beauty of choosing a dress with a bolder pattern is the lack of accessories needed to avoid overwhelming the ensemble. Instead, pick a pair of killer peep-toe heels and throw your hair in a sweet French twist and you are ready to wow your date for the wedding in minutes.
Geometric Patterns are Fun Too
If flowers are not your thing, try geometric patterns, which are very trendy this year. Stick with the same deep, rich colors and play with various patterns, including plaid, stripes and any other pattern that catches your eye. These patterns look best with knee length dresses and a simple pair of heels to keep up the classy, feminine look that is traditionally desired of guests of a wedding.
