The days may be getting shorter, but wedding season is still very much in full swing. In fact, fall weddings are on the rise. Brides recently reported that of the top 10 most popular weddings dates in 2018, nine of them take place after August, and the number-one most popular date is October 20. (My calendar is clear that day, if anyone needs a plus one.)
If you’re like me and are clueless about how to get dressed during transitional seasons — even on a normal weekday — you may be panicking just a little over what to wear to a fall wedding. But actually, the cooler temperatures allow for so many more options than in summer. You don’t have to worry about boiling up in something long-sleeved. You can pull off richer, darker colors (or black!) without looking morose.
Oh, and if you do want to rewear that summery romper you wore to a wedding in July, go for it. Just throw a cute bomber or denim jacket over it and opt for booties instead of open-toed sandals.
If you’re still clueless, here are a few outfit suggestions based on venue and overall vibe. Don’t worry: You’re going to look great.
