Fall Wedding Guest Dresses I Love

Fashionomics accessorizes Koch navy dress with metallic sandal

Wedding season seems to last all year these days and I think having an arsenal of great dresses in your closet for special occasions eliminates the need to panic!! I hate shopping in a rush for something to wear last minute for a big event. I love this dress by Koch from Stanley Korshak because it is navy which I think is such a flattering color and great alternative to the LBD. It has a really unique style with great detailing typical of specialty store finds from creative designers like Nicole Musselman

Fall Wedding Guest Dresses

I want to show you some fall wedding guest dresses I love. I promise to feature a variety of price points so you won’t have sticker shock. Fall brings rich colors that make a statement like navy, deep green and burgundy. Find a style that fits your figure and you will be excited to get dressed up. There are so many sales these days that I suggest keeping your eye out for something extra special at a discounted price. (Note to self: I wish I had worn my strippy sandal instead of this mule) I checked out Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Anthropologie for some dresses you might like. 

Navy is a great alternative to the LBD for over 50 blogger Debby Allbright

How to Accessorize Your Fall Wedding Guest Dress

One thing I know for sure is that great accessories can make or break an outfit. I realize that some ladies like to wear their real diamonds and pearls and I can’t blame them. However there are so many beautiful costume pieces at a variety of price points that you have no excuse for not choosing some great accessories to compliment your dress. You can take the most basic black (or navy) dress and wear it on several occasions by changing your accessories. I highly recommend that you find an evening shoe that is feminine and comfortable. Please don’t wear your daytime pumps with your cocktail dress. (I beg you!!!!) Try lace!!

accessories like Lizzie Fortunato pearl and silver earrings are perfect for your cocktail dress

When I was choosing fall wedding guest dresses for you I tried to find some with sleeves. That is a major complaint from my clients, they don’t like to show their arms. The reality is that inside events are usually freezing because of the air conditioning and fall and winter can be cold outside as well. I have a selection of pashminas that I can grab for a wrap and a fun feather bolero that I have had for years. I am a fan of furs although I know a lot of people prefer faux these days. It’s whatever works best for you. Now I am wearing a more casual blazer with this dress but I would like to show you some dressier options. I prefer a wrap or a cropped sweater or long dressy coat.

fall wedding guest dresses need a wrap for warmth and a dressy look.

Happy Wednesday and I hope you are having a great week so far. It kind of feels like fall and I am getting a little excited about pulling out some new things to wear. We are heading to Austin tomorrow for a wedding and it will be a special treat because we get to see my daughter Victoria who moved there recently. I am so happy for her new adventure but really miss her!! Thank you so much for reading this crazy blog and I love your comments!! Hope you find some ideas for getting ready for those fall weddings!! I am very tempted to take advantage of this sale at NM. Yikes!!! XO Debby
