Hey everyone and happy Friday!! I'm so glad the weekend is finally here. I have so much to do and I'm ready to tackle all of it head on. Before I get to my super busy and exciting weekend I'd like to share with you some outfit ideas I have for any fall weddings you plan to attend this season. I came up with the idea for this post when I attended a friends wedding last weekend and realized that some women really don't know how to dress for or what to wear to a wedding. First I'd like to start off by saying there really is no particular "dress code" for a wedding (unless the couple includes one in the invitation), but there are a few unspoken rules that one should follow. 1-nothing too casual like distressed jeans. 2-only the bride wears all white. 3-don't show off too much skin. I'm sure there are more and I may explore these rules on a later post, but today I just want to show you some ideas to help you look your best. I have chosen 3 of my favorite looks for you and of course I included some pictures of the outfit I wore last weekend since I know you've been dying to see it. LOL
#1-Classic red dress
I love wearing the color red and it's so perfect for a fall wedding especially a deeper red color like the one in this example. I also chose one with long sleeves since it's a little cooler in the fall, but you can always wear one with shorter sleeves and throw on a cute dressy cardigan or jacket. To style this dress I chose a pair of black pointed toe heels and black accessories. Normally I shy away from wearing black shoes with a red dress, but since this is a darker shade of red they compliment the dress very well. This is the perfect outfit for my fashionistas who want to look super sexy but not over the top. You can shop this look HERE.
#2-Little black dress
I've heard people say you shouldn't wear black to a wedding and my response is always WHY NOT?? Black is not only very dressy and classic but it's also very slimming. Black is probably one of the best colors to wear to any formal event including a wedding. The trick is to not wear ALL black. Wear a bold color shoe with matching accessories to make it fun and stylish. I decided to go with the color white for this example. Remember the second rule is to not wear all white not that you can't wear some white. And besides black and white is super classy and makes almost any outfit look more polished. For my example I chose a gorgeous pair of black and white heels and paired them with white accessories. This is the perfect outfit for my fashionistas who want to keep it simple and classy. You can shop this look HERE.
Floral is my absolute favorite print to wear anytime of the year and to just about any event including weddings. Floral is so fun and romantic that a wedding is THE perfect place to wear it. The fun thing about wearing floral is the sky is the limit with color. Choose the color that looks best on you and go find a dress with a floral print in that color. For this example I chose a neutral tan colored floral dress that I think is gorgeous. The long bell sleeves make the whole outfit seem more whimsical and romantic which I love. I paired this beautiful dress with a pair of tan pointed toe flats, a tan purse, and diamond accessories. This is the perfect outfit for my romantic fashionistas who want to look super adorable and fun. You can shop this look HERE.
The colors of the wedding I attended were burgundy and black so I decided to find a black dress with a beautiful floral pattern. This beauty I found at Forever 21 for less than $20 and the fit is amazing. I fell in love with this dress the moment I tried it on because of the huge bell sleeves. This dress made me feel really pretty and dressy but not enough to upstage the bride ;) I wanted to incorporate the burgundy color into my outfit so I threw on these awesome burgundy booties from JustFab that I've had FOREVER!! I think they complimented the dress very well and I was very happy with my decision. You can find this dress HERE but sadly these beautiful shoes are no longer available.
Who's planning on attending a wedding anytime soon? Which style do you see yourself wearing? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends who may have an upcoming wedding to attend. I hope you have an amazing weekend and happy shopping :)
