A couple weekends ago, I was invited to a beautiful wedding by the lake. One of my fellow math grad school friends from UA got married in a beautiful ceremony and I was so happy that I could make it. Being that her wedding was in September, I felt that I needed to make sure my outfit was fall ready but still practical for the Alabama heat. I chose this green fit and flare sleeveless dress with a lace overlay and paired it with green block-heeled sandals. I managed to stay fairly cool and fit in with the aesthetic of the wedding. So today’s post is all about how to style a fall wedding outfit when it’s still hot outside.
How to Style a Warm Weather Fall Wedding Outfit
There are many ways to style a fall wedding appropriate outfit but one of the main goals with any outfit (for me, at least) is that you are comfortable and feel confident in it! I believe there are 3 main components that will make your fall wedding outfit successful: Style, material, and color.
When it is warm outside, the cut of your dress or outfit will have the biggest impact on your comfortability level at the wedding. I would suggest something sleeveless or very flowy that moves with the wind. An outfit with long sleeves or one that clings to the body will make you feel unneccesarily warm and may highlight where you may be sweating. And no one wants that! I decided to go for a sleeveless fit and flare dress. It kept me cool and comfortable.
The material of your fall wedding outfit is just as important as the style. You want to choose materials that feel romantic and give off a wedding vibe. Great romantic, wedding materials include lace, satin/silk, sheers, embroideries, and velvet (I know, but velvet is coming back in a big way and there are some cooler alternatives for hot weather).
The color of your outfit is a great way to embrace the season. While the style of your outfit may be warm weather appropriate, the color can be fall appropriate. My dress was a nice fall leafy color and I decided to go monochrome with my shoes. For your color inspiration, check out the ones below. I’m loving the colors featured in the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Fall 2016.
I hope that you enjoyed this post and that it gives you inspiration for this fall wedding season. As always,
Go forth. Look great. Be great.
