While most couples aim to tie the knot during the sunny days of summer, other love birds find that the crisp, haunting air of fall is the perfect setting for their nuptials. Fall weddings offer a rich, deep backdrop for a day filled with celebration, but your vibrant summer dresses will no longer suffice for wedding-guest fashion. Instead, we’re inspired by this Gucci fall runway look for an ideal formal autumn look.
Luxe jewel hues with touches of sultry lace and velvet are right in line with fall’s decadent fashion trends. Opt for a long-sleeved dress in a simple, tailored style with expensive-looking details like lace, velvet and shine. Dance the night away in a look that celebrates the opulence of this invigorating time of year –and of course, the newlyweds.
How To Get It
Take hints from the Gucci runway look with this beautiful deep teal shade, like our Shoshanna frock. Add touches of texture in a velvet clutch you can easily fit into your budget, and our favourite fall lipstick- Revlon Super Lustrous in Black Cherry. Finish with charming add ons like these purple gemstone earrings and BCBG open toe booties. Don’t forget the sheer hose — a must — and keep hair and eye makeup subdued.
