What to Wear to a Fall Wedding (as a guest)

Even though it feels like summer just started, before you know it the leaves will start to change, the air will start to chill, and all of those weddings you RSVP'd to months ago are going to sneak up on you. Fall fashion is a favorite of ours, complete with knits, layers, and cozy cardigans, but when it comes to fall wedding fashion, what is something current that won't break any rules? We have a list of bridal guest trends that you can follow when it comes to picking a dress that will last you through fall wedding season and beyond.

#1: The Fall Palette
Nothing says fall quite like rich shades of burgundy, gold, and plum. These are popular colors for fall bridesmaids dresses too, so make sure you choose a trendy style (like lace or a cut out  that won't have you blending in with the bridesmaids!) Even dusty shades of pink and purple fit the aesthetic perfectly - and can always be worn again with boots and tights on a fall date.

#2: Leather
The hottest fabric this fall has to be leather. Always a fashion staple for purses and jackets, now were seeing (faux) leather crossover to leggings, sweaters, and even dresses. Fall weddings are a great way to try out this trend, because while super trendy, a leather LBD is fun spin on an old favorite. Our one rule - keep it tasteful. No one wants a biker-babe at their wedding. Instead, stick with delicate details like cut-outs to keep it flirty and fun.

#3: Baroque
This trend is one for the ages. These super luxe baroque-print dresses remind us of French royalty and are the perfect statement piece for fall. They are gorgeous and usually found in deep, rich colors which fit the fall aesthetic. Embrace your love of prints with these gorgeous dresses, all perfect for a fall wedding.

Blue and gold are an unexpected combination!
