What to Wear:
Fall Wedding Guide

You have an invitation on your fridge and absolutely no idea what to wear. No worries—here are a few ideas for how to dress for a fall wedding.


Mermaids

For black–tie weddings, mermaid gowns strike the right note. The combination of a curve–spotlighting silhouette and a dramatically flared skirt delivers elegant drama that's fitting for a fall evening.

Lace

Romantic lace feels flirty with a higher hemline. The versatile fabric is perfect for any wedding because the vibe changes depending on the color. If the invitation calls for something formal, pick a style with shimmer.

Metallic Details

There's no better place to wear a touch of sparkle than at a fall wedding. A glided print or metallic beading looks festive without being over the top—you don't want to outshine the bride, after all.

Florals & Prints

A floral pattern adds femininity to any dress it graces. In a vibrant, high–contrast palette, botanical prints look bold and graphic. To make a sweeter impression, try a delicate motif in light or neutral tones.

Separates

A skirt and top set is a sophisticated option for wedding guests. And with a pre–paired separates designed to go together, you don't need to figure out what matches. Outfit made easy.

Long Sleeves

When there's a chill in the air, long sleeves make sense for fall wedding attire—especially when the event is outside. With a short dress, put on a pair of tights or pantyhose to keep warm as the temperature drops.

Wraps

Layer a pashmina, shrug, or bolero over your dress for extra coverage and coziness. Once the dance floors starts to heat up, you can always take it off.

High Heels

For a transitional season like fall, shoes often present a conundrum. A cage heel brilliantly bridges the gap between completely bare and covered up.
