Autumn is crisp, colourful and provides a stunning, scenic backdrop for any wedding ceremony. Everyone’s feeling festive: there’s log fires, mulled wine and fireworks and the nights are getting darker providing the perfect opportunity to magic up the outdoors with fairy-lights. However, with those crisp evenings comes the challenging process of choosing an outfit that doesn’t lead you to stand shivering all night, yet is still beautifully sophisticated. You’ll be pleased to know it can be done this season… let’s see how.
Velvet is everywhere this season and it achieves the perfect look of smooth sophistication for any wedding. Try a classy slip dress, a crushed velvet cami, or a dark two piece and feel luxurious celebrating this autumn.
We all know autumn whether is unpredictable, so don’t plan your outfit based on what you wish the weather will be like: cover all possibilities. Not only do big coats keep you toasty throughout the day, they also give you a chance to add another element of sophistication to your outfit by pairing a fur, suede or a tailored look with your dress.
Dark floral maxis are perfect for autumn weddings every year. They’re practical, sophisticated and always flattering. Match your colour scheme with the hues of the floral bouquets of autumn: deep purples; dark reds; navy blues; mustard yellows and gold.
There’s nothing better than feeling utterly elegant and spending your day like a bond girl. Satin dresses are figure hugging, lavish and available in every colour imaginable this season so there’ll be no worrying about not finding one to suit your skin tone.
The clunky boots are in and they’re perfect for adding a touch of edginess to your look. Style up your elegant dress with a heeled boot and feel the benefits of comfort, warmth and the ability to dance all night.
Ornate Hair Accessories
Adopt decadence and style your plaits, twists, buns, and other hair styles with eye-catching accessories. Blake Lively’s iconic messy plait, styled with an ornate gold rose is perfectly autumnal and trending for weddings right now. These little details reflect light and can make your outfit really special.
When the low winter sun is blindingly bright, there’s nothing worse than spending your day squinting, leading to the inevitable hilarious, grimacing photographs. But don’t worry… we’ve got you covered. Go for gold to add even more decadence to your look. Alternatively, select a colour from the autumnal spectrum and get a lipstick to match for perfect coordination.
