We here at Flair Designer Wear truly believe there is something very romantic about an autumn wedding. The air is cool and crisp, the world is enveloped in golden colours, and you are surrounded by an inviting feeling of warmth and comfort.
Looking through your wardrobe you may see an abundance of sandals, slip dresses, and bardot tops left over from the summer, which aren’t the most practical of pieces for the fall. If you are struggling to put together that perfect wedding guest ensemble, just have a look at our handy tips on how to dress for an autumn wedding.
Layer with a Jacket or Wrap
Keeping warm whilst looking fabulous in the colder fall weather is easily achievable with a chic cover up. Don’t feel like you have to be confined to a bulky coat, as there are plenty of choices available depending on what you decide to wear. A sumptuous silk or cotton wrap is a great transitional layering piece for the evening portion of the wedding, whilst a cropped jacket matches perfectly with a dress for added warmth during a chilly ceremony.
Opt for a Co-Ordinating Ensemble
We are proud to offer a gorgeous range of dresses that are perfect for an autumn wedding and suit a wide spectrum of shapes and sizes. Understandably not everyone will feel comfortable wearing a dress, therefore why not achieve the same sophisticated result with a two piece or ‘co-ords’? Tops with matching skirts or trousers have made a comeback in a big way and really help you achieve a put-together look that’s both versatile and polished. Patterns don’t even have to match exactly – you can mix up the size of the prints and colours so that your pieces compliment each other rather than being identical.
Mix up Your Textures
Be adventurous in your choice of fabrics to really make a statement – without taking attention away from the bride of course! This 2016 season it’s all about experimenting with velvets, animal prints and furs. If you are feeling confident why not go bold with a velvet trouser suit and faux fur wrap; layering of different textures will create more visual interest to your look. Play to the colours of the season by going for a warm and rustic palette or inject a pop of colour by opting for bright hues and tones.
Style Your Autumn Wedding Outfit with a Hat
Moving into fall means that our lovely British weather is a little more temperamental and so we are at risk of an unexpected shower or two – not exactly ideal when you are attending an outdoors autumn wedding and you have spent several hours perfecting your hair. Go for elegance and functionality by wearing a hat that perfectly compliments your outfit and protects your hair from unwelcome moisture and frizz. Take a look at some pictures of our stunning range of hats and fascinators that can be either purchased or rented depending on your budget and requirements.
