You may be breathing a sigh of relief now that wedding season is over, but now you have the autumn and winter weddings to look forward to, for couples who prefer a slight colder climate for their nuptials.
And if, like us, this summer has meant attending weddings at home and abroad, there’s only so many times you can recycle a dress before buying something brand new. Plus, lightweight, sleeveless outfits aren’t exactly an ideal fabric for autumn weather.
So we’ve trawled the shops to bring you weather-appropriate attire that you can look good on and off the dance floor at the next wedding in the calendar.
Splurge on this Ganni number which will work not just for weddings, but all the other occasions in your life too this Autumn. It’s a statement print that’s guaranteed to earn you a compliment or few, and easy to accessorise. Keep it simple and you’re good to go, why not try this season’s hottest accessory, the pillow bag?
You can wear pinstripes without looking dated. Take this long-sleeved jumpsuit as the perfect example. The draped wrap bodice adds structure too, which stops it looking too casual.
Satin Dress, Zara, £49.99
Embrace the jewel tones this Autumn for a luxe upgrade for your occasion-wear wardrobe. This teal dress will be flattering across all skin tones, and especially good at showing off your tan from the last of the summer holidays.
Hear us out on this one. Yes it’s stripes AND sequins, but just think how good you’ll look twirling under a disco ball. Plus, it is the perfect party dress when Christmas rolls around.
If you can’t let go of a summer pastel colour palette, opt for this soft pink long-sleeved midi dress. We’ll be teaming this with skyscraper heels and a pearl bag.
Step out in style with this cowl-neck piece that’s a striking khaki colour. An easy alternative to black, it’s an easy way to embrace colour into your wardrobe. The wide-legged trousers will elongate your silhouette too.
Chiffon Gown, Mango, £99.99
Wherever there’s a wedding, chiffon isn’t far behind. Give it a chic update with this maxi dress that won’t let a cold breeze disrupt your day. Wear with statement gold earrings, we’d recommend taking a peek at Missoma’s new collection.
Tortoiseshell is one of the biggest prints to wear this season, and this high -neck midi dress ticks all our boxes. Wear with a strappy heeled sandal and a black blazer to cover up when the night draws to a close.
Suit up and look sharp with this co-ord set. It’s bold, vibrant and will easily be worn again. It’s nothing if not versatile, pair with silver brogues if you’re going flat, or for an added few inches of height, wear with animal print stilettos.
