Summer wedding outfits are a no-brainer: if it’s floaty, floral, or off-the-shoulder, chances are you’re set. But a fall or winter wedding can really throw a girl for a fashion loop! The vibe is moodier and more sophisticated (not to mention the serious drop in temps), making it a lot harder to know what to wear. A lot of ladies end up going with a black dress because it’s easy, appropriate, and checks all the boxes. And there’s nothing wrong with that! But if you want to stand out in a sea of floor-length black dresses, you need to know how to turn up the volume tastefully.
Just because it’s the middle of December doesn’t mean you need to ditch the florals! Trading ditzy pastel prints for larger-scale jewel-tone florals is such a chic move. When doing an all-over, standout print, keep the silhouette as classic as possible — like a simple v-neck — and let the statement pattern do all the work.
