A text message over the weekend from my cousin prompted me to pull together a few outfit ideas for fall weddings. They can be tricky, particularly in New England, as some days are in the high 70s but nights are typically chilly. Some of my favorite fall trends, plaid, velvet, and florals, all work well for an autumn affair whether it’s black-tie, cocktail or casual attire.
Plaid, at a wedding? Yes. This season’s plaids are updated in wearable patterns that are perfect for the next nuptials on your calendar. I paired this plaid maxi by Vetiver with a black turtleneck to up the cozy factor for chillier weather. The lace trim and attached sash that ties at that back make it feminine and flattering. Pair it with faux fur heels and dance the night away.
There are so many good velvet dresses for fall I don’t even know where to begin. This one by Donna Morgan is definitely a favorite. It’s the most stunning blue and the silhouette is incredibly flattering. Scroll through for a few more favorites in stunning colors for fall.
This seasons florals are updated in richer shades that feel very autumn appropriate. I love this dress from Anthropologie for a fall wedding.
