Fall Wedding Guest Edit.

Fall Wedding Guest Edit

I did a Q&A a couple weeks back, and I would say that 30% of the questions I received were around occasion dressing: fall’s events and weddings. Today, I wanted to put together a little roundup of personal favorites! There are TONS of great dresses, heels, and accessories below, though I will add that when going to a fall wedding, I always like to add a warmer layer, usually in the form of a faux fur shawl. A few that I like can be found here, here, here, and here! There are of course edgier options like a leather jacket but to me, a faux fur shawl feels timeless and elegant.

Also, a plug for my most favorite, most elegant strappy sandals. They are a splurge but worth it. Very comfortable and make your feet + legs look amazing. The key is to go with the block version (not the stiletto!). I have the silver and black and am thinking about getting the blush/nude.

A late addition but do not sleep on Farm Rio! So many stunning party dresses in gorgeous autumnal colors. My two favorites are this pretty maxi and this one shoulder number.

Lastly, two very relevant codes:
  • Take 20% off at Tanya Taylor with code GRACE20. They have so many incredible dresses and are always one of my go-to brands when I have a special event but I really love this little black dress. I just got it and the fit is just perfection. It would work for such a range of occasions, depending on how you style it. Regular price items only, code does not expire.
  • Take 20% off at Matches (!!!) with code GRACE20. My picks are this La Ligne dress (it’s fancier in person, thanks to the silky fabric), this amazing black silk maxi, and these green velvet sandals. New customers only, regular price items only. Expires 9/13.

PS. Fall Style Finds Under $200

Under $200 Picks

I wanted to break out the more affordable picks separately… I hope this is helpful. My personal picks would be this Reformation dress (stunning adn on sale — size up!), this under $100 pleated dress (it looks like ALC), these beautiful sparkly sandals, and this asymmetric LBD (majorly marked down!) which would work for pretty much any occasion.

    Hi Grace!
    Great post!
    However, looks like a few links are broken/do not link. For instance, the blue belted pleated dress goes to a myteresa page that cannot be found.

    • Hi Maggie,

      Is any link besides the MyTheresa dress broken? I think that is the only one. There seems to be a system glitch but the brand is Costarellos. Unsure why the link is not working!

    • Here’s a link to the Costarellos page. For some reason whenever I pull a link to the exact dress it breaks. Scroll down 10-12 rows and it’s right there! https://bit.ly/3qYDRc1

    I’d love to see you do a post sometime on dressing for an occasion, wedding guest etc. with alternatives to dresses. I always end up buying a dress (that I promise myself will be worn again) and instead it sits in my closet. I guess I’m thinking trousers or suiting, pieces that I will actually wear again in different ways. But also without looking too office-y.
    Anyhoo—thanks for considering. Love your blog!

    • Thank you for the thought! I think that would be hard for me as I personally would likely only wear a dress to a wedding. I just don’t think I would want (or could pull off!) to wear a suit or trousers. I know it can be done… but it isn’t really my style, which would make it hard for me to advise upon.

      I bought the green and white J Crew dress with the smocked waist based on this. Can’t wait to wear it! Thanks!
