What To Wear To A September Wedding

Love Season

Love is in the air as late summer drones on and September brings more wedding weekends to your agenda. There is something so romantic about the fresh feeling in the air in September, and many choose to wed during this pretty time of year. Not quite summer but not entirely harvest-like either, this month is ideal for dressing a bit on the summer/fall fence for your upcoming event.

Something Blue

While it’s best to leave the heavy black and holiday red frocks for winter weddings, you’ll want to bring up the sophistication a notch compared to the bright hues of a summer wedding guest look. We love blue for September, and layering a navy oversized blazer over a simple slip dress in blue is a great look for a late summer wedding.

How To Wear

We’re loving this fall 2013 Lanvin runway look, inspiring our September wedding style. Choose a satin or silk sheath or slip dress in a pretty cornflower blue shade (many shades of blue are universally flattering) and top with a cool navy boyfriend blazer for cooler evenings. Roll up your sleeves and pair a platform in an unexpected shade, and show your love with a fun pendant necklace. Finally, amp up the romance with a berry-hued lip to stand out through your sea of blues.
