What to Wear:
Fall Wedding Edition

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, with occasion dresses starting at just $99.95.

Casual Wedding

If the ceremony and reception are on the simpler side, choose a fit-and-flare dress in a fun, graphic lace. Finish the look with kicky lace-up booties and understated jewelry.

Style Tip:

Don't forget to grap a jacket or a wrap! Early fall days can still feel like summer, but it gets quite chilly at night.

Semi-Formal Wedding

Romantic lace feels flirty with a higher hemline. The versatile fabric is perfect for any wedding because the vibe changes depending on the color. Barely there heels and sparkling accessories are the perfect accompaniments.

Style Tip:

Usher in fall with a rich shade of wine. You'll look seasonally appropriate and totally on trend.

Formal Wedding

If you've got a black-tie event on the horizon, try a ball gown. One with a high-low hemline is easy to move in and shows off a great pair of shoes. Speaking of, a strappy metallic pair makes kicking up your heels even more exciting.

Style Tip:

Have you ever tried a print on a formal dress? If you choose a grand silhouette and luxe fabric, it feels suitably fancy.

Destination Wedding

An easy-to-pack, super-flowy maxi dress is the epitome of destination wedding dressing. Breezy and cool with a little bit of drama, you'll feel tropical and dressy.

Style Tip:

Blingy yet walkable, statement sandals fit right in at a destination wedding, particularly if the party will take place on sand.
