Not all weddings are in the height of Summer (June being the most popular month). Some people opt for an Autumn wedding and we love it! Another popular time for couples to say “I do” is in October. The weather is just getting nice and crisp, the leaves are turning and romance is definitely in the air.
Although this will certainly produce a wedding photo album to remember as the Autumn backdrop is one of the most romantic possible there are still questions regarding what to wear. Will the church be freezing? should i wear a nice blazer? will i need to wear tights? Our money is the magical power of sleeves and if you don’t want to bare your ankles: wide-leg trousers. Pretty printed dresses with full sleeves can be recycled into winter with knee-high boots and slouchy jumpers thrown over.
Don’t panic. If you’re off to an October wedding, be inspired by the outfits below.
1. Say it with spots (and flats)
Style Notes: There’s nothing chicer than a classic polka print and chiffon bell sleeves. Make like a Parisian and top your frock off with lace-detail flats and a directional handbag for a guest-worthy look that’s anything but predictable.
2. Winterize your slip dress
Style Notes: Don’t relegate anything with spaghetti straps just yet—all you need to do it reach for a tailored jacket to take it on a season (and keep you warm during the vows). We recommend you go for several shades of one colour, like blue to create an effortless, tonal look.
3. Consider yellow
Style Notes: If you’re a brunette, why not opt for yellow? Cheery—but by just the right token, it’s a brilliantly warm transitional colour.
4. Ensure your dress has sleeves
Style Notes: If you don’t want to invest in a cover-up, a savvy shortcut to staying warm is wearing a dress that has elbow length sleeves or longer. A midi hem will also provide a little added courage. Then all you need is a prosecco jacket.
