Dress for (Autumnal) Success as a Wedding Guest
Gone are the days of sleeveless dresses and strappy heels...It's Autumn!
While everyone is excited to break out their favorite jeans and softest sweaters, it can be more of a challenge to think of an appropriate fall wedding outfit. You want to be able to look nice without freezing your tail off. Here are a few tips and tricks for keeping warm and looking fab at the same time!
1. These (OTK) boots were made for weddings
Don't put your mini skirts and dresses away so soon... Pairing an outfit with a short hemline with over-the-knee boots will instantly transform the look from summer to fall! OTK boots come in a wide variety of style, color, and heel height, so you can always find the perfect boot that works for you.
2. It's sweater (dress) weather
Cozy sweater + cute dress = best invention of all time: the sweater dress! Sweater dresses are such a chic way to dress up while keeping the top half of your body super warm. To keep your bottom half warm, you can pair it with those over-the-knee boots you were just inspired to buy!
3. Max(i) it out
Don't care to wear heels all night? Then wearing a maxi dress or skirt could be your perfect solution! Maxis can act as both a blanket for your legs and a cover for the most comfortable pair of shoes you own. However in this case, comfort and style can still go hand in hand since maxis will always make you look effortlessly elegant - no matter how comfy your shoes are.
4. Keep it tight(s)
These are not your grandma's tights we're talking about. Sometimes, when worn with a less busy dress, a fashionable pair of tights can be the star of your outfit. Whether they are glittery, colorful, or patterned, buying a glamorous pair of tights can be a great investment and will jazz up any outfit. As if it couldn't get any better, they will keep your legs warm and cozy too!
In the end, it's always important to wear what YOU feel most confident in.
Always remember to be respectful of the wedding through your outfit choices, but chances are, the bride and groom will be so excited to see you they won't even remember what you're wearing - they're just happy you can help celebrate the best day ever with them!
