Wedding guest dresses for fall and winter weddings are unlike those you reach for in spring and summer. While equally fun and romantic, they require more thought in the silhouette and fabric department. Think: long sleeves and hems (hello, maxis!) to stay warm, particularly if the "I do's" involve an outdoor element. And heavier fabrics, like velvet, knitting, and beautifully detailed brocade. But don't despair — it's not all practical humdrum. This is event attire, after all.
Festiveness is the pillar of a number of the absolute best fall and winter wedding guest dresses. We're talking sparkle through sequins, Lurex fabrics, and embellishments — plus, elegant sheen in the form of taffeta and satin. Of course, you should feel as on-trend as you do venue appropriate, like with a romantic puff sleeve, sexy waist cutout, or a drapey cowl neck lining an Aughts-inspired slip or gown.
Color is another way to drive your decision, be it an autumnal shade like spicy ginger, golden yellow, and juniper, or a shimmering jewel tone, such as garnet or sapphire — both a brilliant choice for a holiday-timed wedding. And if you're a floral-print girl through and through, we feel you. Moodier blooms in deeper tones are romantic as ever with a cool-weather feel.
